Alarms: Worth considering, worth the cost

  • An alarm system should be a priority for a business premise. It provides peace of mind to business owners, especially outside business hours.
  • There are now a wide variety of alarm systems on the market to suit any situation and any budget.
  • Systems have become more efficient and reliable utilising the latest technology.
  • A great system that is available are the Navigator Systems from NES Corporation. Andrew Reilly from Wire-Not Electrical can obtain and install this system at a very good price if you live in Brisbane. His telephone number is 07 36330118 and email address is his web site is     For additional information about these alarms Read more here.
  • If you have an alarm system, use it! Activate your alarm system — Alarm systems are only useful when you remember to activate them.
  •  Many individuals have alarm systems but do not arm them because it is inconvenient. Some burglars know this and will not be deterred by a window sticker or sign indicating that the home has an alarm system. Besides, many insurers will have clauses where they will limit or void cover if a burglary occurs but the alarm is not activated.
  • A common question is "Will it discount my premiums?" The answer is yes but not usually that significantly. What it will do though is limit the extent of any loss so for a Burglary sub limit, this can be chosen for a lower amount. Preventing a loss can also save you on the excess payable on insurance claims.
  • Burglary risks are expensive to insure. Repeated claims in this area can result in insurers refusing to even cover you for this event.
  • We also have a community duty to reduce theft, burglary and break ins. So an alarm system, even combined with a camera system can lead to a reduction in crime as the perpetrators are more likely to be caught and dealt with, backed with clear evidence.
  •  So make your business premises more secure. It may save you!
