"Orbis showed great willingness to help resolve the problem as inexpensively as possible. All in all, they acted like a fourth emergency service."

One Vision Housing

Vacant Property & Site Alarms

Unless professionally secured, empty properties are vulnerable to vandals, metal thieves and trespassers, a fact reflected in landlords’ insurance premiums. Our vacant property & site alarms are designed to protect buildings and internal fittings.

Our alarms are tamper-proof, constructed from vandal-resistant materials, operate for up to nine months on battery and are continuously monitored by Orbis’ own 24/7 Response Centre.

Local teams respond to alarm activation’s within an average of 20 minutes. Up to 32 additional wireless sensors can be added and sequential verification reduces the risk of false alarms.
