These days all alarms should be monitored
Businesses and the discerning home owners should have an alarm/cctv with the ability to call an appropriate organisation that can monitor the property and make an informed decision in the event of an alarm activation.
We can arrange for an alarm receiving centre to receive the alert and professional key holder to attend. This ensures that neither employees or neighbours are placed in harms way due to lack of training.
