Business Alarms

Amthal Fire & Security recommends that business’ who require alarms opt for a monitoring service option, not least as these are usually a requirement of insurance companies providing cover.  Alarms connected to a monitoring service are the most effective and are usually a requirement of insurance companies providing cover.  Opting for a remotely monitored alarm, where activation signals are sent to a monitoring centre, ensures the police are contacted on your behalf in the event of a confirmed activation (subject to your system meeting the requirements of the police response to security systems policy.

Signals can also be filtered for false activation's, avoiding the risk of losing police response to your alarm.  Intruder alarm systems from Amthal are always designed with the needs of your business in mind and take into account the usage of the premises whilst remaining effective and user friendly.

External Detection


It is often as important to be able to detect unwanted intrusions in the approach (the outdoor area around a building/facilities) – as the perimeter and the building itself. That’s why Amthal can provide the best products for the purpose. A wide range of outdoor detectors are available to cover any kind of scenario, from wide to narrow coverage, from standalone detectors to detectors specifically designed to integrate and enhance CCTV operations by triggering an alert on fixed or PTZ cameras. Ranges include infra-red detectors featuring anti-vandalism features, automatic sensitivity adjustment and also our leading-edge laser scan detectors which can analyse the size, distance and speed of a moving object.

Perimeter Security

Amthal offer three discrete types of detection technologies to protect a physical or virtual perimeter: Laser scanner enables detection of approaching threats within the outer perimeter. Fiber SenSys fibre optic detection systems can be installed directly on fences or walls or buried, and will identify any attempt to go through the perimeter line. Active beams as well as redscan used vertically will create an invisible line or wall protecting the physical or virtual perimeter line. Any of these technologies can be used in isolation or in conjunction with each other and can be also been integrated to a CCTV system to provide visual identification.


Physically securing doors and windows – the most vulnerable entry points to any building – is seldom a barrier to determined criminals. Electronic security is a considerably more effective deterrent and will also prevent inevitable theft, vandalism, espionage or other consequences. Amthal can provide highly effective options for detecting the presence of would-be intruders who have reached the walls of a building. We offer a range of our proven detection all specifically designed to protect doors and windows. Some feature pre-recorded warning messages to deter potential intruders. Additionally, laser scanning provides a complete wall of security for any building.


Early detection of threats on the roof can avoid forced access via vulnerable skylights and dropping down to upper-floor windows, as well as preventing damage to the roof itself. Amthal can provide total protection for roof areas with high technology edge laser scan detectors which not only has the sensitivity to detect moving objects, but provides complete analysis of those objects to determine the nature of the threat and minimise false alarms. Detectors can be integrated with a CCTV system in order to provide visual identification

If you are responsible for business premises, an employer or self-employed with business premises, responsible for a part of a dwelling where that part is solely used for business purposes, a charity or voluntary organisation or a contractor with a degree of control over any premises, you have a responsibility in relation to fire prevention!



As the world becomes more digital and buildings more intelligent, homeowners and businesses are looking at more efficient ways to secure buildings.  Access control enables you total control on who has access to your building. Locks and keys also allow you to secure your building, but when keys are lost or stolen, the inconvenience and expense of changing locks and re-issuing keys can be considerable.
