Having a professional security company respond to alarm activations reduces any risk and is also a safe alternative to staff key-holders responding every time the alarm is activated or a break-in is detected.

To meet British Standard BS 7984, all keys are stored in our hi-tech key management system. In the event of an alarm being triggered one of our licensed security officers will attend your site, whatever the time, day or location. When responding to an incident, our officers carry out a thorough patrol of your premises to determine the cause of the alarm.
