What is the cost to install an alarm security system?

January 19th, 2016

There is no typical cost of an intruder alarm security system installation as each should be bespoke to the needs of the building and the protection of the people and assets that are located within it.

That said, budget is going to be one of the main points of discussion during a design specification meeting. The best starting point is to view the security system installation as a direct investment in the long-term future of the business. The cost of alarm installation need not be prohibitive, and whilst manufacturers are constantly releasing their latest state of the art equipment or infrastructure, they may not be suitable for your application.

In a very real sense, a functioning security, intruder alert and fire alarm system demonstrates a clear statement of intent on the part of the owner of the business. It shows that they are serious about the business and safeguarding the employees who conduct their duties on their behalf. The first stage in determining the cost of a security system installation is to establish what is required.

The tried and tested method of achieving this is to seek advice from a specialist fire and security alarm company. Always choose one that has the relevant industry accreditations and has a track record of providing expert advice, high quality equipment from leading manufacturers and can provide ongoing maintenance service support in a way that meets both your requirements and your budget.

Costing Security Systems

A business security system is a network of devices that sets off an alarm if either an intruder is present or an attempt is made to access an unauthorised area. The cost of an alarm system installation must be balanced against employees’ right to safety and some degree of privacy in the workplace. This does not mean that an employer should compromise on security, but may need to apply emotional intelligence to its implementation.

For example, employees may see the presence of security guards or CCTV on the shop floor as overly intrusive. However, they will probably accept this presence in areas where high-value property is stored.
