How Do You Know If You Need Alarm Response & Keyholding?
Our Alarm Response and Keyholding Service removes both risk and inconvenience of having to respond to out of hours activations. The response service can be linked to any device capable of sending a signal out to an alarm receiving centre, whether that’s your intruder, fire or panic alarm, or even reacting to events caught on your monitored CCTV system.
Fast and Flexible 24/7 Response
Unfortunately, it is not always feasible to have employees on call if there is a security issue at your premises, especially if you only operate during normal working hours and, therefore, don’t have people in the building late at night.
