Security System upgrade for Repeatedly Burgled Waikato Business

Sometimes the security system chosen by a customer might not be adequate to provide full coverage of the premises if you consider that burglars have no regard for your property or your building.
Recently a business customer of Sterling Security had been burgled repeatedly as the burglars had found a vulnerability in the chosen coverage of this Waikato business that stored highly sort after consumer goods.
Proving the extreme lengths some burglars will take to enter a premises, external walls (not windows or doors) had been used to break into the building.
In providing the business a solution for ‘full coverage’ we had to consider the vulnerability of the offices within the business that had external walls as these had been used to access the business in previous break-ins. This meant the business security system would require a far greater number of sensors instead of just covering rooms with a door or window as previously requested by the customer.
As all the existing wired zones were already in use on the installed alarm panel we installed a wireless receiver to extend the number of sensors that could be connected to the security panel.
This allowed our installers to add six more wireless sensors to cover all the external offices plus a wireless reed switch on the main access door which when programmed did not allow the customer to set the alarm until that door was closed adding a further safety layer to premises and the alarm system whilst not making the system cumbersome for staff to use.
The upgrade took our installers just two hours to complete the day after the most recent burglary.
This was just in time as the very next week the cheeky burglars tried to enter the building again but this time the alarm system activated immediately and deterred the intruders from continuing into the building which was lucky for them as our security guards arrived at the premises only minutes later as the alarm system is monitored by our local monitoring centre.
Our business customer is very happy with the result and now understands the value of ‘full coverage’.
