Remote alarm monitoring systems are extremely effective in detecting and responding to threats at clients premises 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Our remotely managed systems are far more cost effective than manned guards and also vastly out perform traditional methods. Any unauthorised access will trigger the system to send live video to our central control room for our operators to analyse within seconds.

Our highly trained operators will then interact directly with the site via 2 way audio, sound audible alarms, liase with the police and emergency services if required and contact key-holders if needed. Full reporting of incidents is sent directly to the client via email.
