Shop Alarm Systems

ShopShield One from Clearway

Fixed Price Security for Vacant Retail Shops for £399
All prices +VAT Shop Alarm Systems also available. 

Shop alarm systems are often one of the first security features that shop owners or landlords consider when their shop is to be left vacant for a period of time. Whilst alarms serve a purpose, they only serve as a deterrent after there has been a breach – meaning the damage may already be done. For this reason, we recommend that shop alarm systems should be implemented as an additional service once the basic security vulnerabilities have been addressed.

Why secure your shop?

Empty retail units have long been a target for criminals. The potential for unlawful entry can be high, and can have a significant impact on business operations, so is a major headache for retail landlords. Our unique ShopShield vacant retail security package provides convenient, affordable and professional shop security for just £399 +VAT, with a video verified shop alarm available as an additional bolt-on service.

Taking simple steps to secure your shop with a few security features (as provided by our ShopShield One package) can be an adequate enough deterrent for potential intruders, trespassers, vandals and squatters, with an alarm system installed to bolster security in the unlikely event of those systems failing.

Prior to the installation of an alarm system, we recommend:

  • Two commercial lock changes
  • Letterbox security installation
  • Fitting of a mechanical key safe on-site.
  • Removal of flammable waste materials.
  • These basic security elements are explicitly designed to meet the security challenges of managing an empty retail unit, addressing common threats such as arson, pest control, break-ins and other unauthorised entry.

Retail Security for Vacant Shops for £399 +VAT

Once the basic security features have been implemented as above, we would then recommend a professional, monitored shop alarm to act as an additional layer of security.

Our shop alarm systems offer:

  • Reliability – alarms that remain operational 24/7 
  • Flexibility – security alarms available for short or long-term hire, depending on the duration of the property vacancy.
  • Responsive – our shop alarms are monitored with video verification when an alert is triggered, with instant responses from our trained security personnel.
  • Advanced – Clearway retail alarms include remote keypad management, commercial-grade sirens, and dual camera units to capture movement or alarm triggers.

Our shop alarm systems are designed for use internally and externally, withstand any weather conditions, and will remain on duty day and night, armed and ready to capture any attempted security breaches.

Our wireless retail shop alarms operate continuously without the need for mains power or an internet connection, and will continue to run uninterrupted for up to four years. Communication via the internet is provided through a mobile data connection, thereby removing the need for a hard-wired internet connection.

They are ideal for vacant retail units where mains power is unavailable where you need to ensure the integrity of your commercial properties in remote locations.

The Value of Commercial Shop Alarm Systems

Vacant retail units are always at higher threat of unlawful entry, and having professional, state-of-the-art alarm monitoring is the best possible way to mitigate that risk.

Clearway’s video verified, wireless alarm system delivers the most advanced protection, with instant wireless communications, which is highly effective when used across your crucial access points.

Our video-verified alarm responses prioritise convenience and ensure that no security team is deployed when wildlife or another non-threatening movement triggers an alert.

Shop alarm systems protect against multiple threats:

  • Our fully independent alarm systems ensure criminals cannot cut wires or rely on power outages to gain an undetected entry.
  • Vandalism and squatting can be significant issues for vacant retail site managers. Alarm systems with video verification enable you to make instant decisions about the appropriate security response, preventing intruders from remaining in situ.

The key to an effective retail shop alarm system is always the support provided on the other end of an alert.

Clearway’s NSI Gold Standard accredited Alarm Receiving Centre provides around the clock monitoring, ensuring that every alert is observed, security responses deployed, and emergency services notified where appropriate, in accordance with a predefined security protocol.
