Commander Alarm Systems

Trace-in-Metal Ltd are proud to be working in partnership with Scrabo Security Ltd who produce a range of innovative proactive alarm systems. In particular ‘Roof Commander’ is seen as a product that works extremely well in unison with the Trace-in-Metal Metal Protection system to provide a complete solution to Lead Theft.

By combining the strengths and innovation of both products, Lead is protected whilst on the roof  and the value of the metal is removed, because the Trace-in-Metal treatment remains with the Lead throughout it's life cycle. 

This creates the ultimate deterrent to thief and dishonest metal recycler.

The ‘Roof Commander’ is fitted internally within a church or building and will notify custodians by sending an SMS alert message to up to 10 mobile devices, as soon as anyone attempts to climb onto a roof. A warning is simultaneously sent to the intruder alerting them that their presence has been detected.

Because the system is fitted internally, maintenance can be carried out routinely and inclement weather and other external influences do not affect the sensors.

The system is simple to operate and install and can be programmed to ignore times when the building is in use. The system can be both stand alone or can be hard wired into existing alarm systems.
