Intruder Alarms

At CDS Security & Fire we ensure that we evaluate new advances in technology within the Security Industry in order to ensure that our customers are always kept up to date with new developments that will benefit their premises and ensure a secure workplace.

Based in Durham and covering the North East of England, CDS Security & Fire was admitted to the roll of National Approval Council for Security Systems (NACOSS) in March 1989, as an approved Intruder Alarm Installation Company. We have since been awarded the NACOSS GOLD medal of approval for quality service delivery covering Intruder Alarms (this medal also included CCTV and Access Systems).

Quality Assurance accreditation was achieved in 1990 to BS5750 (Quality Assurance), ISO 9002 in September 1993 and to ISO 9001:2008 in August 2009, for the installation and maintenance of Intruder Alarm Systems.

All our Intruder and Burglar Alarms are designed, installed, commissioned and maintained to EN50131, PD6662, DD243 and NACP11. 

We design, install, maintain and service intruder and burglar alarm systems throughout the Durham, Newcastle, Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, Cleveland and North Yorkshire area; ranging from residential intruder alarm systems through to sophisticated multi-user, PC Controlled Systems, including full integration with Access Control and/or Closed Circuit Television, providing an integrated Security System from a single interface.

Intruder Alarm Systems can be monitored 24 hours a day to our UK Based Alarm Receiving Station. On receipt of a signal, your keyholder would be informed immediately, with police response if so required and dependant upon the type of Intruder Alarm System.

Monitored intruder alarm systems are connected to our UK Based Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC).

This means that on activation of the alarm, a signal is sent to the ARC, via a telephone line and/or cellular network.

Where a police response is required, the monitored intruder alarm system must be capable of giving confirmed alarm activations. This means that when a detection device is triggered and the alarm activated, the first signal will be sent to the ARC, who will notify the nominated Keyholder.

If a second detection device is then triggered (e.g. a burglar moving from one area into another) a further signal will be sent to the ARC.

This is classed as confirmation and the police response would then occur.

We comply with the individual insurance company’s regulations and liaise with our customers to ensure these regulations are carried out on the insurance company’s behalf.

All Design Proposals are subject to European Standard EN50131, DD243 and PD6662 Intruder Alarm policies.

Since our inception, CDS Security & Fire have worked closely with Local Constabulary’s across the country to ensure our clients maintain a Police Response.

All service/maintenance visits are carried out as per our ISO 9001:2008 procedures covering 24-hour call out service, and emergency 4 hour response (out of hours) with a full diagnostic check carried out during a maintenance visit, and copy report issued to the client.
