Whether it's a simple domestic burglar alarm or a sophisticated commercial or industrial intruder alarm network you require, we can design, supply and install it. We have over 30 years of experience installing alarms to suit many applications, such as houses, offices, factories, government buildings and council properties.
We install our systems to NSI Gold standards, the highest recognised governing body in security systems, usually requested by insurance companies (An NSI System will usually incorporate a reduced insurance rate).
Technological developments allow us to install wireless burglar alarm systems if it is not possible to route cables through your property. We can connect to your home or business Wi-Fi, so you can control and monitor your network through an easy-to-use app on your mobile phone.
We can expand your security system to include CCTV camera surveillance and fire alarms that link to the phone app to give you total control of your property's security needs. A fully monitored Intruder alarm service can automatically call the Police, Fire Brigade, key holders or ourselves should an alarm be triggered.
Whatever the requirement, we can fulfil it to the highest standards. Please don't hesitate to contact us for advice and a free quotation.

Deploying intruder alarms effectively on your property requires careful planning and consideration of various factors.
Risk Assessment: You should first conduct a thorough security risk assessment of your property to determine which areas you need to protect and identify potential entry points, vulnerable areas, and valuable assets. EPG offers to carry out a free, no obligations survey
Alarm System Selection: The next step is choosing an alarm system that best suits your security needs. These are basically wired alarms which are hardwired into your property or wireless alarms where wiring is difficult. Systems can sound alarms, issue alerts to smartphones or connect to a monitoring service that can alert authorities in case of an alarm activation.
Sensor Placement: Sensors for door and window contacts, motion detectors, glass break detectors, heat monitors, and so on, should be strategically located at entry points and areas of concern. The control panel must be sited in a secure but easily accessible location. It should be well-hidden but still reachable for arming and disarming the system.
Keypad and Entry Codes:
It is useful to deploy keypads for arming and disarming the system at convenient locations and ensure access codes are known only to authorised personnel and are regularly updated.
Alarm Signage: It is also a good idea to install display signs indicating that an alarm system protects your property to deter potential intruders.
Regular Maintenance: Schedule routine maintenance checks for your alarm system to ensure it is always in proper working order, replacing batteries in sensors and control panels as needed. This should d be combined with regular testing to ensure it functions correctly.
Smart SystemsIt is always worth considering integrating your alarm system with other security measures, such as security cameras, access control systems, and lighting.
Legal Compliance: Businesses should ensure their alarm system complies with all local or regional regulations and permits. You should keep records of alarm activations and maintenance to help with troubleshooting and insurance claims, if necessary.
The effectiveness of any intruder alarm system depends on a combination of all the above factors and how well they are implemented. Regular assessment and updates to your security measures are essential to ensure ongoing protection. You should promote a security-conscious culture among occupants, employees, or family members to enhance the overall effectiveness of your security measures.
