Bibliography

Defines guidance and recommendations relating to alarm transmission systems used in association with alarm systems.

This Published Document provides guidance and recommendations relating to alarm transmission systems used in association with alarm systems.

NOTE1 Alarm transmission systems (ATS) provide a means of sending alarm messages (such as fire, intrusion, access control or social alarm) away from the supervised premises to an alarm receiving centre.

This Published Document builds upon the existing BSEN50136series for alarm transmission systems by providing additional guidance, such as additional ATS performance categories and actions to be taken when the availability fails to meet the required levels, alongside fitting and installation advice to improve the security and reliability of ATS.

NOTE2 See Annex A for installation guidance for intruder and hold-up alarm application.

This Published Document also includes recommendations to enable enhanced reporting of dual path failures.
