Alarm monitoring from Locked and Secure
Bells-Only System: These systems produce audible alarms both internally and externally when triggered.
Self-Monitoring: Self-monitoring systems sound alarms internally and externally but also send notifications to you through text messages, emails, or pre-recorded voice messages when triggered.
Monitored Alarms: These systems are linked to an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). When activated, the ARC contacts the site owner and designated keyholders to alert them about the alarm trigger.
Monitored Alarms with Police Response: These systems operate like monitored alarms but with an added layer of security. If the ARC receives a confirmed signal indicating an intrusion, they will also contact the police to report the incident.
Alarm monitoring stands as the utmost effective and dependable means for your security system to establish communication with you. When your alarm activates, it dispatches coded signals to an Alarm Monitoring Station (ARC). The ARC promptly initiates contact with you or your designated keyholders and, when necessary, can engage law enforcement agencies to ensure a rapid and coordinated response to your Milton Keynes property.
Alarm monitoring options for customers in Milton Keynes
When your alarm is connected to an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) for monitoring, it's essential to be aware of your regular preventative maintenance. The frequency of required maintenance depends on the grade of your system, and certain aspects of maintenance can be carried out remotely.
Before entering into an alarm monitoring contract, it's advisable to consult with your insurance company. They may have specific requirements or recommendations regarding the monitoring of your system. Being informed about these requirements can help ensure that your security setup remains compliant and effective.
