Anti-burglary system plays an important role in prevention of various forms of illegal acts (burglaries, thefts, vandalism) that want to alienate or destroy certain property in protected area. The purpose of an anti-burglary system is automatic detection of unauthorized intrusion into the object and alert (light and sound signaling) the security forces or the owner about a criminal activity in the protected area. The system acts preventively and reduces the risk in such a way that it disrupts the perpetrator from committing a criminal offense and shortens the time of the commission.
Anti-burglary system consists of:
- Alarm center
- Periphery devices (control keyboards, extension modules)
- Detectors (for indoor and outdoor use, environmental state detection)
- Communication devices (voice receivers, GSM, TCP/IP communicators)
- Audio signaling (for external and internal use)
The selection of appropriate solution depends on a number of factors, such as the degree of risk, the type of activity in the protected object, the potential damage that may arise, the shape of the space, the window position and the heat source, and a number of other circumstances to consider when designing the system. All parts of the anti-burglary system can be combined with each other, and it is also possible to meet the toughest requirements that arise in order to achieve maximum protection of the protected area.
In addition to the psychological effect of deterring potential burglars by emphasizing an external siren at a noticeable site and labels on the embedded system, a large effect is achieved by activating sirens and lights (both inside and outside) during a burglary, as the anti-theft system prevents attempts at burglary at the earliest stage. Breaking open the doors and windows, or breaking glass inside the protected area is detected by using magnetic contacts and glass fracture and vibration detectors. Wired and wireless infrared and microwave detectors deter the heat radiated by the human body and are most commonly used in or near the interior of the protected facility. Anti-burglary systems can be expanded with smoke, fire and gas detectors so that the alarm center itself alerts the increase of their concentration in the air. The system can be controlled via remote control, LCD keypad (with and without a screen), touchscreen keyboard, graphic keypads.
The type of control unit is determined by the size and purpose of the object to be protected, the number of detectors to be set, the wiring setting, the need to divide the space into more independent units, and the planned type of alarm and signaling. The control unit adjusts the sensitivity level, defines the logic that triggers alarm activation (for example, only if there are 2 or more detectors in the alarm) or sends the silent alarm to the guard.
The communicator built in the control unit has the ability to automatically forward the information to the central message system (CDS), or user’s cellular phone in several ways: classic phone line, TCP/IP communication over the internet. The development of communication networks and their availability in all segments of our society and their stability has contributed to increased usage of systems that communicate via TCP/IP networks. This way of communication with devices gives us some advantages over PSTN communication over the telephone line. Therefore, by installing the appropriate module (IP module) through the TCP/IP network, not only can the information be forwarded to the monitoring center, but the anti-burglary system itself can be accessed through your computer /tablet and mobile phone. In this way, you can always inspect the state of the security system installed for your protected object.
