Intruder Alarms

How Dent’s can help protect you and your property

Dent Security Systems have been installing intruder alarms in the Cambridgeshire area for over 20 years.  We are a family owned business with a professional, experienced team of engineers and we’re proud to be local. We offer 24hr support 365 days a year.

Whether you require a simple, audible intruder alarm system or a 24hr fully monitored Police calling alarm, we make the design fit not only your premises, but also your budget. Our independence means we can specify the best equipment for you. We also carry out intruder alarm maintenance, upgrades and repairs.

We’ve secured thousands of family’s homes and installed cutting edge security technology in the region’s businesses, schools, universities and biotechnology premises, including Johnson Matthey, Mott Macdonald, Sawston Village College, Clare College and Bayer Cropscience.

Securing your home: house alarm systems

Wireless intruder alarms are a popular option as they’re quick to fit without the need to hide cables to detectors. We’ll listen to your needs however - and any concerns you may have - and provide our recommendations without the hard sell or baffling jargon. Every intruder alarm system is different which is why we offer a free, ‘no strings’ survey to ensure we provide the best solution for your budget. With prices starting from as little as £495+VAT for a domestic alarm, peace of mind costs less than you think. 

"We were really pleased with the help we had from the engineer on the 24 May visit. My wife and I thought he was exceptional. Please pass on our thanks to him. Mr Baker"

Securing your business: commercial alarm systems

Whether you are a small, large or retail business, imagine arriving at work to find your premises burgled. Can you put a cost on the disruption this will cause? Can you value the information as well as equipment or stock held on your premises? A security system can protect you against theft, break-ins and disruption so you can concentrate on your business. We can install the latest ‘wire free’ (wireless) intruder alarm systems.

NSI Nacoss Gold

As a NSI NACOSS GOLD installer, we monitor the performance of all the equipment we use to ensure it is effective and reliable. NACOSS GOLD burglar alarms suffer fewer false activations. Our false alarm incident rate on maintained sytems is currently about half that of the national average for NACOSS GOLD companies. We strive to keep it that way.  If you ever do need us to attend for any faults you can be sure of a fast response.

Why a NACOSS GOLD Burglar Alarm?

  • Security vetted staff
  • Guaranteed 4 hour response to faults
  • Can be Police monitored (Redcare GSM and Emizon)
  • Complies with latest British & European standards
  • 24 hour callout and telephone support
  • Audited standards of workmanship

Police response alarm systems

Police connections can be done through Emizon, which uses dual-path advanced signalling via IP (a broadband line) and Vodafone, thereby providing 2 links, instead of Redcare's single telephone line link, providing greater security.  This system also allows Dents to interrogate the alarm panel remotely for servicing or diagnostics.

Speech diallers can call your mobile upon alarm activation if you’d rather not have Police connection.

EMCS (East Midlands Central Station) are our monitoring station and are the UK's leading independent Alarm Receiving Centre, with a state of the art control room, rapid response and unrivalled customer care.
