In alarm monitoring, monitored security allows you to go further than installing a simple fire or theft alarm device. It means you've invested in professional support to look after your premises 24 hours a day and notify you of any threats.
The faster the response, the less damage, so let Securitas respond for your business. An alarm monitoring system can ensure your attention is always where it needs to be - focusing on growing your business.
You can leave fire safety and intruder responses to high-quality professionals, so there's less disruption to you and your team's work/life balance. Our skilled operators will be there for you even when the 9-to-5 ends.
Some insurers require fire alarm monitoring as a condition of cover. Using a monitored alarm means ensuring your company is fully covered and prepared for any emergency.
Don't Be Your Own Security
Alarm monitoring means no business owner has to be their security, as the business is monitored 24/7. Combined with our Alarm Response service, a trained security team or the appropriate professionals will investigate the potential threat if an alert is made, ensuring you can clock off from work when the workday ends.
You employ professionals, so hire professionals for your security.
Suppose a fire or intruder alarm is activated. In that case, security operatives at the Securitas operation centre (SOC) can review footage from the camera before the alarm goes off to see the trigger. 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 aware that they are being watched. If necessary, our SOC will send a mobile patrol team to the site to investigate further.
In the world of alarm monitoring, monitored security means you’ve done more than just install a fire or theft alarm device. It means you’ve invested in professional support to look after your premises 24 hours a day and notify you of any threats. If your alarm goes off, no matter what time of day or night, your security provider will quickly assess the situation and respond.
- The faster you respond to a natural disaster, the less damage to your business.
- You can leave fire and intruder responses to the appropriate professionals.
- There’s less disruption to your and your team’s work/life balance.
- Some insurers require fire alarm monitoring as a condition of cover.
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.
