Modern alarm systems can be broken down into two basic types, audible only and monitored.
The monitored systems guarantee a response to any activation and can be dealt with according to the different procedures you can put in place; whereas, audible only alarms rely on good Samaritans taking action when they hear an alarm going off.
From the very basic to the more advanced, monitored alarms give your property an extra layer of security. As an NSI Gold company, based in Orpington, our call centre operators can even offer police and fire service response when necessary.
With all of our installations you get an experienced surveyor who can recommend the very best monitoring option for your specific needs and budget.
How A Monitored Alarm Works
If activated, the alarm will call our 24 hour NSI Gold approved Alarm Receiving Centre. The operator can then assess the situation and call your nominated list of key holders to let them know what has happened. If you have monitored CCTV system, they can even see what’s happening – otherwise they communicate with the intruder through microphones and speakers.
As we are NSI Gold approved, we can provide monitored systems with a police reference number, which allows a police response.
If you want your system to have Police response, it must be maintained by a company with a police recommended accreditation – such as our NSI Gold accreditation
Monitored alarms are never ignored.
Once the alarm is set off, the response is actioned and cannot be disabled, even if the ringing can be.
To protect your building from fire, you can add smoke detection to the system and the monitored alarm will also alert our receiving centre if it detects smoke. Fires in particular must be acted upon quickly to prevent serious damage or worse, so having a call centre operator ready to react to your alarm 24/7 can be life saving.
Whether your property is in Orpington, Kent or London, it doesn’t matter, our monitored fire alarms can also be set up to call the emergency services, so the fire brigade can respond quickly.
Just like the monitored burglar alarms, your key holders will be informed of the situation by our operators.
It’s an investment in peace of mind
Given the relatively small additional annual charge and the reduced insurance premiums, the benefits of having your alarm system monitored far outweigh the costs.
Either way, a monitored alarm is never ignored and the potential damage inflicted severely reduced by the guaranteed response it offers. It’s 100% peace of mind for your property.
