Temporary Alarm Systems in Scotland

As a vulnerable target for theft, squatters and trespassers, vacant properties require tailored security solutions to keep them safe. With years of experience in safeguarding vacant sites across Scotland, the Clearway team offers a range of vacant property alarms designed to maintain surveillance for your empty premises, with swift installation and consistent monitoring for your peace of mind.

Our Solo Alarm is an ideal, self-contained solution that can be fitted, verified and brought online in just 20 minutes for immediate protection. This advanced alarm service is wireless and battery-powered, so it is versatile enough to fit any premise or property, designed exclusively for commercial and residential premises without mains power access.

For around-the-clock protection, the Solo Alarm system harnesses a GSM mobile network for communication, ensuring that activations are immediately transmitted to our control centre for rapid response and security personnel deployment.

Clearway works with private property owners through to businesses and organisations to protect commercial premises, retail sites, car parking areas and vacant properties.

  • A reliable battery-powered system, with a five-year lifespan and minimal maintenance.

Each of these components come together to form the ultimate vacant property security alarm, with high-level management controls and advanced technology to protect your properties 24-hours per day.

Adaptable Temporary Alarms Systems

The Solo Alarm system has an adaptable multi-sensor capability, with sensors positioned in prime locations, each with an equally powerful sensor. When activated, any sensor in the network emits a 110 dB alarm, for an instant and powerful response.

Attempted intrusions and alarm activations are also immediately streamed to the Clearway Alarm Receiving centre, or your preferred device, for prompt responses via a mobile network notification independent of telephone lines or bandwidth.

Clearway vacant property alarms can respond to any nature of activation, including:

  • Intruder alerts
  • Smoke sensors
  • Fire hazards
  • Water and flooding
  • Gas leaks
  • Breaking glass

In any activation scenario, the relevant information is instantly transmitted to ensure it can be managed professionally and appropriately according to your response protocols.

Applications of Clearway Temporary Alarm Systems

Whether you need alarms on a long-term basis to protect vacant properties, or as a temporary measure to safeguard premises during key activities of heightened risk, Clearway alarms protect a variety of sites across Scotland:

  • Empty residential properties: During a period of vacant tenancy, throughout a sale process or during renovation, vacant property alarms safeguard the security and value of your premises.
  • Construction site security: As a prime target for criminals, wireless alarm systems are ideal for construction sites to protect assets and personnel from intruders and theft.
  • Car parks: Parking areas and bays are a common location for illegal entry or unauthorised activity, and therefore require remote alarm systems that can immediately initiate a response when a breach occurs.
  • Commercial premises: Clearway works with clients including pubs, bars, shops and retail sites throughout Scotland, providing protection and a preventative measure to avoid vandalism, break-ins and criminal damage.

Related Clearway Security Solutions

Security strategies are identified through a thorough site inspection and consultation. This process helps the Clearway team to appreciate your operational risks, security hazards, and crucial priorities to advise on the most suitable security solutions to meet that demand.

Vacant property alarms are often complemented with additional safety measures for a more comprehensive safeguarding system, using services such as:

  • Temporary CCTV: CCTV cameras are a powerful deterrent, and can back-up alarm systems by providing high-quality real-time footage to assist in identifying intruders and taking appropriate actions.
  • Video Alarm Systems: Another option is to utilise video alarms for rapid verification to identify whether an actual breach has occurred, or when an alarm activation is false. This avoids spending time and resources in responding to false alarms.
  • Concrete Barriers hire: These barriers are a highly effective solution to prevent unauthorised site access, and protect your vacant sites against fly-tipping, vandalism and theft by making it impossible for vehicles to gain entry.
