By AAI Security

As the old philosophical question goes; if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? Whichever side of the fence you sit in regards to that particular puzzler, it is indisputable that if a ‘bells only’ security alarm is triggered and no one can hear it, your property may well be vulnerable to intruders.

By AAI Security

Securing any home or business against the threat of vandalism and theft is a priority for all property owners, and increasing the number of ways in which a building is protected is the best way to deter any unwanted intruders.
