High-quality, basic mechanical protection is always the first step in a holistic security concept for your home. This will make life difficult for thieves looking to break into your house or apartment. However, as any mechanical protection system can be cracked if a criminal has enough time to practice his/her "craft" unmonitored, an alarm system should constitute the second stage of any security system. This will trigger an alarm if a break-in occurs or if one is even attempted.
Alarm systems are also known as burglar alarm systems, security protection systems or intrusion detection systems. All common alarm systems work based on the same technical principle. They use a number of different sensors to detect a break-in into a building or security area. If sensors are used to detect smoke, water or toxic smoke, an alarm system will also alert you of these dangers, for example, by sounding a siren or calling a monitoring station.
We differentiate between wireless alarm systems, wired alarm systems and hybrid alarm systems. Hybrid alarm systems integrate wireless and wired components into one system. IP-based security protection systems represent a recent trend. These systems combine the diverse possibilities of modern network technology with tried-and-tested wireless and wired alarm technology.
In the area of alarm technology, ABUS applies its mechanical and electronic competence. We are the only company worldwide to offer a range of mechatronic alarms, which resist mechanical pressures of one tonne and trigger an alarm if a break-in is attempted.
