Guidance on Intruder Burglar Alarms for Commercial or Higher Value Domestic Premises

Feb 3, 2020

We are often asked for advice on the type of burglar alarm that should be fitted to commercial or higher value domestic premises.

An intruder alarm system is a commonly used security measure that prevents or mitigates a variety of crimes (burglary, robbery, malicious damage and arson) at home and business premises and is widely recognised by insurers – subject to the alarm system meeting some basic criteria. If you are planning to have an alarm system installed it is worth being aware of what your insurer may typically be looking for if they are to recognise the alarm system as meeting your security needs or, perhaps, as being worthy of a premium discount.

Our trade association, BIBA, have produced an excellent guide that is aimed to help explain the differences between the various system types: https://www.biba.org.uk/insurance-guides/intruder-alarm-guides/guidance-notes/
