Commercial intruder alarms

Intruder alarm systems are designed to protect the physical assets within unoccupied premises and to provide a safer environment for occupants. Intruder alarms are a proven deterrent to crime and vandalism and enable an appropriate response to be coordinated by the Chubb monitoring centre.

The main control panel is selected based on the number of detection devices, alarm system users, individual areas requiring protection and future expansion and feature requirements.


Chubb offers external warning devices that provide an audible and visual deterrent to would be criminals. They sound in accordance with noise standards and customer specific standards. 

Beam detection

Beam detection is an established and reliable form of perimeter intruder detection, suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. Protecting the perimeter of your premises, beams offer advanced warning of unauthorised access and a quicker response to an intrusion attempt.

Active infrared beams utilise point to point detection to provide a high level of security for many commercial applications. Examples include external perimeters or fence lines, large internal perimeters such as warehousing and sports halls, windows and large glazed areas, roller shutters or loading bays.

Door and window opening detection

If a protected door or window is opened when the alarm system is armed, the sensor will indicate an intrusion on the alarm panel. 

Door and window contacts are available to suit all applications and environments. 

Smoke and heat detection

In addition to conventional intruder detection devices, commercial intruder alarms are a cost effective way to alert you to the presence of smoke. These devices support smoke and heat detection and are designed to provide end users with early warning of potential threat of fire. 

If activated by an environmental change such as smoke or change in temperature the system, if remotely monitored, is able to generate an alarm signal to the monitoring centre which in turn can initiate a response by a designated person or relevant emergency service.

Smoke detectors monitored through an intruder alarm panel should not be relied on for the purpose of meeting any obligation under the New Zealand Building Act.

Open space detection

Protecting your premises in this way allows you protect large and often awkward areas from attempted intrusion subsequently reducing the risk to people or valuable assets.

Movement detection is used to cover areas such as rooms or hallways internal to the perimeter of the building by detecting a moving object or heat source.

Often referred to as movement detectors, these are an integral component in any intruder alarm system. Movement detectors normally utilise either passive infrared (PIR) or microwave technologies, or a combination of both, to deliver a solution with improved false alarm immunity.

Duress and hold-up devices

In addition to conventional intruder detection intruder alarm panels are also able to support life safety devices, which are designed to provide assistance when faced with a potential threat to safety such as panic and hold up alarms.
If deliberately activated by a person under threat, the system, if remotely monitored, is able to generate an alarm signal to the monitoring centre which in turn can initiate a response by a designated person or relevant emergency service.

Glass break and vibration detection

Glass break and vibration detectors are a valuable addition to any intruder alarm system when increased levels of perimeter protection are paramount to ensure early detection of an attempted break-in.

Vibration detection solutions vary according to risk and the type of perimeter building structure you are trying to protect, from walls to ceiling or doors & window frames and external fencing. These technologies can also be used to protect higher security risks such as safes, vaults and ATMs.

Detectors are available as single small format devices which can be grouped together to protect an entire wall or alternatively a specialist seismic detection cable that is fitted directly along the entire length of the wall or ceiling.

3G/4G Communication devices

Chubb support an number of 3G and 4G wireless alarm communication products and can assist you to tailor a monitoring solution to suit your needs.
