There are four intruder alarm grades, which include:
- Grade 1 – Intruders are unlikely to target the premises.
- Grade 2 – There’s a higher risk of theft due to valuable property being kept on site.
- Grade 3 – There is a substantial threat from experienced intruders due to high-value contents.
- Grade 4 – The property has a very high risk of being targeted by organised criminals.

This set of guidelines also became known as BS EN50131, after it was adopted by the British Standards Institution. Through their PD6662 scheme, the BSI introduced these European guidelines to boost intruder alarm standards across the UK.
EN50131 was originally adopted back in 2005 but, after various revisions, it remains a crucial reference point for British businesses in 2020 and beyond.
A monitored alarm system is suitable for unoccupied premises and high risk premises, as well as any business – as knowing your business is being monitored externally can give you extra peace of mind.
