Protecting Business with Monitored Alarms from Alarmtech

In today’s dynamic business landscape, security is paramount to safeguarding assets and staff.

One crucial aspect of business security is the installation of monitored alarm systems. These systems serve as vigilant guardians, deterring potential intruders and responding swiftly to security threats. Yet, despite the clear benefits they offer, not all businesses prioritize implementing alarm systems.

Understanding the disparities between businesses equipped with monitored alarm systems and those without sheds light on the critical role these systems play in fortifying your organization’s security posture.

Monitored systems are connected to Security Response Centre that alerts your authorized keyholder list and emergency personnel immediately in case of a security breach, fire, or other emergencies. This can lead to faster response times compared to systems where the alarm might only sound on the premises, relying on those nearby to call for help. In the city of London, police are dispatched when two or more zones are tripped, visual verification, or a person on the premises witnessing the emergency. This is the new VARP policy of 2018.

The presence of a monitored alarm system by Alarmtech can act as a deterrent to potential burglars or vandals. Knowing that an alarm will not only sound but also notify law enforcement can discourage criminal activities.

Many insurance companies offer discounts on business insurance premiums if the business has a monitored alarm system. These discounts reflect the lowered risk of theft and damage – contact your insurance broker to learn more about the benefits of burglary and fire detection.

Experience peace of mind knowing that your property is being watched when you are not around. This can be particularly valuable for small business owners who do not want to or cannot afford to hire private security.

Monitored systems can often be integrated with other security measures such as CCTV cameras, motion detectors, door contacts, glass break detectors as well as fire/smoke/co detectors, providing a comprehensive security solution.
