Sounding alarms rarely attract attention these days and the only way to guarantee 24 hours protection of your premises is to have your alarm monitored.
It is not expensive and many insurance companies now give good discounts on premiums or excesses for homes and business with monitoring alarms.
Monitoring ensures immediate action is taken once your alarm is activated. In most cases, customers want Security Officers dispatched immediately to the premises to investigate the cause of the alarm so as we may apprehend any burglars on site and reduce potential losses.
When Security Officers are dispatched, monitoring provides details of what sensor or sensors have caused the alarm and where the sensors are located inside the building. This enables the Security Officers to co-ordinate attending patrol units on the likely entry point used by the offenders increasing the likelihood of a capture.
The type of monitoring required is dependent on a number of factors including the nature of your business, whether you work “standard” hours and the number of staff with access privileges.
