Alarm Detection and Communication

Argus install many different types of systems for our customers, our experienced surveyors will visit your property and design an appropriate system to suit your needs and requirements, including wirefree, hard-wired, speech dialing, APP controlled, and higher security off-site monitored systems. At Argus we pride ourselves in bespoke system design, we specialise in high-security police response systems and the ever-growing APP controlled systems, that can work alongside Police response providing greater system functionality or as a standalone option for a lower security self-monitoring solution.

For low-security solutions, we recommend Audible only or APP controlled systems, for medium to high-risk properties we recommend police response monitored systems with dual-path monitoring on higher risk premises. Argus can monitor systems in a variety of ways including phone line, mobile network and internet, more information about these solutions can be found in our monitoring section.

Argus Intruder alarm systems can protect your business and property in many ways, we can provide perimeter detection systems which protect the exterior doors and windows, internal detection systems that are operated by movement detectors and door contacts, and a variety of other options you may or may not have considered such as, pet immune detectors, panic alarms, smoke detectors, flood detectors, break glass detectors and interruption beams.

Police Response

In order for an alarm to receive Police Response, the system must comply with the relevant standard. Should the system comply with the police response standard, the alarm company can then apply for a Unique Reference Number (URN) to be issued on the system. The current standard for Police Response Systems in the UK BS8243, this standard has various options for setting and un-setting the alarm. The most common method for setting and un-setting a Police Response Monitored Alarm System is via a digital key (proximity fob).

Fog Cannon

Argus has installed many fog cannons for our customers in Wigan, Warrington and the greater North West which are ideally used to slow down or deter an intruder, these are ideal for Jewellery Stores, Banks, and Petrol Stations but can also be used in areas such as, shops, schools IT Suites and warehouse’s. Fog cannons are designed to operate on an intruder activation in a high-risk area. They work by filling the room with a synthetic smoke which is designed to stop an intruder in their tracks and deter them from entering the room any further. The fog is completely safe to breathe and will not in any way damage stock. When fitted correctly, these can be an effective solution to protect high-value stock and can sometimes reduce your insurance premium.

Testimonials - What Our Clients Say

“After a recent break at my home I contacted Argus Fire and Security to provide a quotation for CCTV. I was very impressed with the rapid response and detailed quotation, the system purchased is of high quality and I particularly like the remote viewing capability from my mobile devices.

Thank you Argus for a job well done, please pass on my appreciation to your staff for their diligence and professionalism.”

A. Williams

Mr. A Lems.

Standish Dental Practice

“Great service from Argus. On the initial assessment they identified that a burglar could break down our door and enter most of the office without activating the alarm. Argus installed a completely new system for much less than I was expecting, and with their remote monitoring that’s linked to a key holder we have total piece of mind.”
