The best security alarm system may be more than just a ringing bell when security has been compromised. It may be a silent alarm or one that only alerts key personnel within a company. Because of the sensitivity of some areas of business, as well as the general unease that a security alarm can cause, it is extremely important that the best security alarm is chosen for the job.
Types of Security Alarms
Technological advances have brought about an array of choices in how management or key personnel can be alerted in the case of a possible breach in security. Some of the choices include:
- Audible alarm at the point of violation
- Text notification to designated personnel
- Email notification to designated personnel
Determining the Best Fit
A security alarm system is only as effective as its scope. Therefore, it is a good idea to assess and plan before choosing.
For instance, a public school’s alarm system may need to be designed differently from that of a manufacturing facility. Small children could be easily and unnecessarily frightened by a loud security alarm as opposed to the employees of a factory who have been trained in how to react to it.
Bank personnel may need a security alarm that silently alerts law enforcement and management in order to keep a dangerous situation from escalating, while an information systems department may need an alarm that alerts management to suspicious activity.
