Intruder Alarm Systems
EDS have a range of intruder alarms designed for use in the widest of applications; from residential systems to small and large businesses and organisations with multi-site high security applications such as banks and financial institutions.
EDS have a system to meet your requirements. From simple control systems, to state of the art digital computer-controlled systems with on-board audit trails, our systems can be linked to a range of electronic sounders, bells, strobe lights and other interfaces to provide adequate deterrent warning within the premises. The system can be linked to our 24 hour control centre, giving instant response to emergency services, police, fire and ambulance authorities, guards, and keyholders
A suitable range of detection equipment is employed to protect your premises, including door and window contact devices, movement sensors, infra-red and microwave beams, vibration and impact sensors, acoustic and seismic technologies, with personal attack units to summon instant response in the event of an emergency situation.

Secure, Cost Effective, Built-In Technology & Reliability
We have a range of systems available ideally suited to any size and type of property. Providing a fully featured alarm control system with an extensive array of options for ease of operation, our system’s modular construction and design allows expansion to meet your future requirements.
LED/LCD display indicators allow clear circuit identification, incorporating large key buttons with extremely user friendly, menu driven on-screen information. The system can be individually configured to the user’s exact requirements and re-programming is simple, with operation being carried out at the keypad or from a remote location to suit your needs.
The system is accessed through on-board keypad or remote keypad systems, with highly secure PINs, proximity tag or biometric eye or fingerprint recognition readers. All of these can be programmed to provide either full control over the system or a simple one button setting for cleaners, as well as allowing access to the system for setting and unsetting, testing, resetting and configuration of the system.
Areas within the premises can be assigned to groups, which allows for total flexibility and complete control. Internal sounders provide setting and incorrect operation warnings, with full on-board diagnostics to provide early warning signs of any potential situations.
Our range of control equipment offers fully programmable detection zones, which can serve as entry or exit routes, day alarms, night alarms, audible and silent personal attack, duress code alarm, 24 hour and fire zones and more. The equipment provides a choice of several settings for full setting, part/night and home setting, allowing selected areas of the premises to be protected at any time, all of which are completely compatible with the EDS range detection equipment.
The benefits of the system are considerable, providing increased security and flexibility.
The EDS range of detection devices has been developed specifically for use in any environment to protect your premises, with differing types of technology employed to cover all aspects of detection. We provide PIR (Passive Infra-Red) and dual technology PIR & microwave motion detectors with additional anti-mask technology to provide an indication if a detector is deliberately or accidentally obscured to infra-red & microwave beams, vibration, impact, acoustic & seismic sensor technologies. Long term performance is maintained by the use of sealed devices to prevent dirt and dust ingress and insects from impairing the detector’s view. Constant monitoring of the ambient temperature and automatic compensation ensures optimum detection coverage over a wide temperature range, with white light filters increasing the detector’s immunity to false activations using in-built technology.
The EDS range of detectors can be installed quickly and have been designed to suit your environment. Their tough, easy to clean, attractive housings provide practical security in style. Flush mounting is an option on most detectors, making it more aesthetically pleasing and less vulnerable to vandalism.
The EDS fire detectors are designed to operate with any standard intruder alarm. The units are powered directly from the control equipment therefore removing the need to replace internal batteries. The units are totally reliable as a power or wiring failure will be indicated at the control panel. The smoke detector operates efficiently and rejects unwanted smoke, such as people smoking within the area of the detector. It is designed to respond to all types of smoke generating fires; this is particularly suited to detect the smoke produced from smouldering furniture. The heat detector is designed for environments where a smoke detector would cause excessive nuisance alarms and therefore is ideally suited for areas such as a kitchen. If an alarm is detected the unit signals to the control panel immediately and depending upon the nature of the system, whether the control equipment is set or unset will determine if the remote central station is alerted.
Under normal conditions the detection is automatically self tested, causing the test light indicator to flash. An internal test button is mounted on the side to allow for testing. The detectors design and construction results in very low current consumption allowing many detectors to be interconnected to a standard intruder alarm system. The detectors are easy to install and maintain.
Vibration & Shock Detectors
The vibration and shock detectors provide reliable 24 hour perimeter protection. The vibration detectors are placed strategically and are designed to detect any forced entry, glass being broken, window frames and doors being prised open, forced, smashed, drilled or even sawn through. Vibration detectors can be installed on walls or roofs to detected attempted entry through these areas.
Break Glass Detectors
Acoustic break glass detectors are designed to detect the breaking of certain types of glass, generating an alarm condition should a window be smashed.
The detectors can cover a large area such as a shop front or large expanse of glass for office buildings. The detectors have built-in microphones and use advanced microprocessor-based glass break sensors with high-level static and transient protection and white noise rejection mechanism.
Personal Attack Buttons – PAs
Personal attack buttons and switches allow an intruder alarm system to be deliberately activated at any time. Each has been designed to be easily operated in an emergency situation, but also to minimise the risk of accidental activations.
Two main types are generally available. The fixed double action hand operated model requires two buttons to be pressed simultaneously before an alarm is activated. This is ideal for areas where the risk of accidental operation is higher. The units are manufactured from either stainless steel or high impact plastic housing and will blend unobtrusively with most decors.
The second unit is a radio remote control which can be either belt or neck worn. Once pressed the unit triggers the receiving unit and a PA signal is generated and appropriate action taken. The radio PA system provides excellent portable protection for up to 1000 metres from the receiver or more.
Our range of contacts have been designed for use on wooden, plastic or metal doors and window frames or similar openings.
They can be either flush or surface mounted, dependant on the decor or extent of coverage required. For larger contacts designed for use on heavy duty roller shutters, warehouse doors, concertina doors and large openings, the magnet is usually fitted to the opening door. This enables heavy vehicles to be driven over the floor mounted contact without causing damage.
Service, Maintenance & Repairs
EDS can maintain any type of existing system, providing on-site and workshop repairs to any make of systems. With a large stockholding of spare parts we can turn around repairs rapidly.
Regular maintenance is fundamental to ensure your systems operate as effectively as when they were first installed, we are able to provide competitive quotation for maintenance of new and any type of existing system.
