Commercial & Industrial Intruder Alarm Installation Service Covering Plymouth, Devon & Cornwall

Its prudent thinking to protect your business premises using an intruder alarm specifically designed for business premises as they are significantly different in what they can deliver compared to intruder alarms designed for your domestic home.

When we talk about security for a business the first thing that we must consider is crime prevention and risk management somewhat more than any loss prevention. Over the years insurance companies cover less and less for crime damage and loss for a business making it almost impossible to claim back all losses your business suffers through crime. To give you an example, lets say your laptop or main computer was stolen. Your insurance will cover the primary cost for that laptop or computer (The purchase cost of the laptop or computer) and they will cover any damage caused when the computer was stolen, like forced entry to a door so the door and lock are damaged, this is known as secondary costs. However, they do not consider the repercussion costs whatsoever. Repercussion costs in this example is the cost for all the information and data you had on the hard drive of your laptop or computer. Insurance Companies will not cover repercussion costs so its prudent to think about this in your risk management involving the installation of an intruder alarm.
