Monitored alarm systems for your business
There is nothing worse than that sinking feeling you experience after you discover a break in. With alarm monitoring in place you can rest easy knowing that your alarm will help to prevent a crime from having ever taken place acting as a deterrent.
If a fire or intruder alarm is activated, security operatives at the Securitas operation centre (SOC) can review footage from the camera prior to the time the alarm went off to see what the trigger was. Here we can look at the live camera feeds to assess what is happening in real time. Some of our systems have functionality that allows the operative to issue an audio warning so the perpetrator is made aware that they are being watched. If necessary, our SOC will send a mobile patrol team to the site to investigate further.

Alarm monitoring means there is a security professional at the other end keeping track of your premises. An unmonitored security system is (simply put) a noise-maker. It might be a deterrent for bad agents, but you or your people staff will need to be available to respond to every trigger… a fire or flood won’t be put off by harsh sounds alone.
Alarm monitoring, alarm response and keyholding are different services within the security world. Alarm monitoring means a team is scanning for threats 24/7 and will respond by alerting you or the appropriate first responders. Alarm response lets your security service attend the site to check all possible entry and hiding points and prepare a report on that alarm activation. Keyholding takes that one step further and gives your security partner access to the building to complete a full sweep and take any action required.
The best alarm system for your business is one that includes alarm monitoring services. We can immediately notify you – or the designated keyholder – of the alarm activation. And, in the event of an intruder or fire, alert the emergency services and direct them to the scene. For more support, our alarm monitoring can be combined with our mobile alarm response and keyholding services. That further reduces the impact on yourself and your staff. And it’s the fastest way to identify security or fire risks to ensure prompt action is taken.
