If you have your alarm monitored, you can choose for our Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) to initiate a Police response, in addition to notifying your selected keyholders. A Police alarm offers immediate notification to the emergency services in the event of serious threat to your home security.
Your need for a Police monitored alarm system depends on your risk, the specification of your system and individual circumstances. Our home security surveyors are well-placed to advise you on the benefits and requirements of a Police response alarm.
Police alarms offer a quick method of informing the Police in the event of a confirmed intruder alarm activation. A confirmed activation means that two individual devices have been triggered in quick succession (usually a 30 minute window), indicating an intruder may be present. This sequential process is in place to reduce the amount of false alarms caused by single devices continually triggering the alarm, often due to human error or a fault with a device. Any signals of this kind received by the Alarm Receiving Centre are known as unconfirmed activations and are no longer accepted by the Police to warrant a response.
To establish whether this level of monitoring would suit you and your property, we recommend arranging for an Allcooper home security surveyor to visit you to discuss your requirements in more detail.
