According to the Fire Statistics Monitor, local authority fire and rescue services attended 223,400 false alarms since 2013.

False alarms are not only inconvenient but expensive to manage, this is why the process of installing or servicing them correctly is so important.

When properly implemented, alarms are an effective deterrent for burglars, act as useful warnings and limit damage to premises.

That’s why we’ve recently published BS 8243:2010+A1:2014 which offers recommendations on the installation, maintenance and management of intruder and hold-up alarm systems.

The guidance document seeks to:

  • Outline design objectives for intruder alarm systems
  • Provide an effective confirmation facility
  • Minimize the likelihood of false alarms

The document also provides guidance on minimizing the incidence of false alarms so you can ensure effective alarm systems management.
