Remote monitoring services for your business 

Professional security monitoring provides you with the technology, experience and resources to monitor your CCTV when you need it, but remotely. 

It is a cost-effective way of remotely monitoring your business premises 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, without the need for on-site security guards or patrols. Saving you the cost of on-site security and saving you the time and worry of checking on your premises out of hours.

Alarms can be generated through a range of devices, including CCTV, but also from other security systems and even environmental devices to detect temperatures, flooding, carbon monoxide etc.

What is alarm monitoring?

Alarm Monitoring is the transmission of an alarm from premises to a remote location - also known as ARC (Alarm Monitoring Centre), RVRC (Remote Video Response Centre), SOC (Security Operations Centre) and CS (Central Station).

Whilst monitoring has evolved over the years, from independent wires to then using telephone lines, to more recently using IP and 4G, the premise has remained the same since the 1800’s – utilising technology to remotely monitor an alarm, to protect a person or premises.

How does alarm monitoring work?

Remote alarm monitoring covers several different types of systems, from the traditional Intruder Alarm and Fire Alarm to Distress, CCTV and even Environmental and Access Control. All these different types of monitoring do ultimately share the same methodology for Alarm Signalling, each of these devices will send a quick, clear and concise communication to the Monitoring Station, alerting them of a situation that requires a response.

The real magic comes from the transmission device – each of these device types will generate different alerts, in different ways, but ultimately will communicate in a series of industry recognised formats that allow a Monitoring Station to decipher and respond rapidly and efficiently.

Remote Security Management
A smarter and safer way to secure your business

Remote CCTV/Video Monitoring

Our remote monitoring centres handle all traditional on-site security guard tasks, reducing security staff costs, and giving you the benefit of knowing that a central operations team is always monitoring your business premises.

You can get direct cost savings of up to 80% of the cost of physical security guards or patrols that are no longer needed. 

False alarms are reduced because events are visually verified before a call-out is made, which also protects your Police Unique Reference Number (URN).

The benefits of a Remote Security Team:

  • Monitoring remote cameras during set schedules and providing important notifications
  • Answering alarm triggers and ensuring priority police response to emergencies
  • Monitoring that personnel are adhering to business expectations and policies
  • Archiving activity reports and video footage, for documentation and evidence
  • Providing remote video access to archives, and all security cameras in real-time remotely.
Intruder alarm monitoring
24/7 intruder alarm monitoring service

Remote Intruder Alarm Monitoring

An intruder triggers your alarm, what happens next?
Intruder alarms are great for deterring unwelcome guests from trying to access unauthorised areas. In the event an intrusion is attempted, the alarm activates and starts to ring.

But what happens after that?

Wouldn’t it be ideal if you were notified of the intrusion? Or perhaps if the police were immediately called to the scene?

Our 24/7 intruder alarm monitoring service takes care of reducing the risk of intrusion, and helps you to avoid potential damage and inconvenience, by:

  • Implementing fast-response automated actions to combat activated alarms
  • Immediately informing you of attempted intrusions when premises are vacant
  • Setting up a Unique Reference Number (URN) for automated police response
  • Identifying and managing false alarms.
Fire alarm monitoring
Fast emergency response

Remote Fire Alarm Monitoring

Go beyond smoke alarms to avoid loss and damage

Fire alarm systems are a must to protect people, buildings and assets from fire loss and damage, but they are not enough. You also need to factor in peace-of-mind measures such as automated calls to fire brigades for fast emergency response, and water sprinkler control to avoid water damage - especially if the building is vacant.

Our 24/7 fire alarm monitoring service helps to protect you, and reduce the risk of potential fire loss and damage, by:

  • Setting up auto-diallers to notify our monitoring centres about activated alarms
  • Swiftly informing fire brigades, for emergency call outs without delay
  • Monitoring fire sprinkler water flow and valves to minimise water damage
  • Regularly testing, inspecting and repairing alarm equipment to ensure reliability
  • Proving convenient online access to monitoring, maintenance, service and billing
Access control monitoring
Prevent unauthorised access

Remote Access Control Monitoring 

Who’s coming in? Who’s going out?
It’s important for businesses to implement an Access Control system, so they are able to provide building access to only those authorised to enter. It’s also very important to monitor the system, so they are able to maintain it; manage lost cards; set up automated door lock schedules; and ensure safety at all times.

Our 24/7 access control monitoring service takes care of ensuring building safety and minimising the potential of unauthorised access, by:

  • Providing full maintenance, data entry, and administration of your system
  • Managing access cards, card holder database and visitor badges
  • Implementing and managing door lock schedules
  • Providing an online portal which gives control and information on-demand
