    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes requirements for the construction, installation and operation of high security intruder alarm systems installed in buildings. Such systems consist of one or more detectors, one or more items of control equipment, one or more audible warning devices and the necessary signalling devices and power supply equipment. Applies to those systems in which the only detectors are deliberately-operated devices, and systems which use wire-free connections for deliberately-operated devices.
