'Roof Commander​' - The price of lead has increased 64% during the last 12 months. 

Scrabo Security Ltd have developed and manufacture an innovative proactive alarm system. This alarm has been designed to protect church roofs.  ‘Roof Commander’ is 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 system.

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.

The system also includes a heat sensor and any notable change in temperature within a building will also result in a SMS message being sent to custodians.

This system therefore not only prevents theft, but also warns in case of a fire, the impact of which can be devestating.
