What is Alarm Response?

In the event of an alarm activation at your premises, or intruder alert, we will dispatch our SIA trained security officers (your keyholders) to attend your site immediately. Once they arrive at your site they will investigate the cause of the alarm activation. They will then determine the appropriate action to deal with the alarm call out. This could be calling the emergency services, rectifying a ‘false call out’, or securing the premises after a break in.

You will receive a full digital report with photographs from our security officers detailing the alarm response service and what measures were taken.
