Alarm Monitoring

The ultimate protection for your building and people, discover the benefits of our 24-hour central-station monitoring system.

This state-of-the-art technology relays any alarm breach directly and immediately to the police, who will provide a fast and effective response.

This 24-hour monitoring security system provides the highest levels of protection for your building and – for peace of mind – features back-up communications technology that enables signals to be monitored even if the primary path fails.

Insurance companies now require dual path signalling devices to be fitted to all new, medium-to-high-risk intruder alarms, so we will recommend the system that will best suit your requirements. 

We’ve recommended 24-hour monitoring systems that have not only improved companies’ security but also saved them thousands of pounds.
