Here's a great catch story and a prime reason why you should never neglect selling intrusion detectors for upper floors of a building.
According to Bosch Security Systems Inc., Fairport, N.Y., its DS9370 Series Ceiling Mount Detector recently helped customer Jade Alarm Co. and the local authorities apprehend an intruder at the Whatsoever Community Center in Kansas City, Mo. The intruder attempted to circumvent the Whatsoever Community Center’s first-floor perimeter security by scaling an exterior wall and entering the facility on the second floor. Upon detecting motion on the second floor, the DS9370 triggered an alarm to the Bosch control panel securing the premises.
Bosch Certified Security Dealer Jade Alarm Co., the system installer and central monitoring station, immediately dispatched local law enforcement personnel to the center. With the rapid detection of the intruder and response to the alarm, local authorities were able to arrive in time to observe the suspect beginning to leave the premises. As a result, the intruder returned to the community center and attempted to hide in the ceiling, where police promptly located and arrested the man.
“Bosch detectors deliver extremely reliable catch performance, enabling our central station to provide an unsurpassed level of service to our customers,” said Joseph Pfefer, president of Jade Alarm Co. “This alarm event is just one instance where the technology’s flawless operation has helped us protect our customers’ facilities and assets.”
The DS9370 Series TriTech PIR/microwave detector uses several patented processing techniques to provide excellent catch performance with freedom from false alarms. The detector can be mounted on ceilings as high as 25 ft. and provides fully adjustable optics for coverage integrity at all mounting heights.
