The majority of businesses in the UK have some form of audible alarm and CCTV to protect their premises from trespassers or vandalism. These alarms can be set to remotely alert you to a potential break-in, allowing you to act quickly and take necessary action to prevent damage or detain the perpetrators.
However, without a professional alarm response service, you are solely responsible for the outcome, and if you’re alone it could easily put you in a vulnerable position. Are you confident in confrontation and do you know how to operate within the confines of the law when faced with such a situation? This is where an alarm response service becomes hugely beneficial.
How can alarm response benefit your business?
There are 3 main ways an alarm response can protect your business.
- One your system is set up, you can install visible signs to warn potential intruders that an alarm system is in place, and acts as an initial deterrent.
- When triggered, the audible alarms can scare off potential intruders, preventing further damage and theft.
- Many alarm systems have key features such as text messaging alerts and CCTV links, allowing you to act quickly to a potential break-in and get on site.
The vast majority of break-ins at commercial premises occur out of hours. This is typically when business buildings are empty, meaning there is less chance of opportunist thieves to be caught. However, we can offer an alarm response service that involves deploying a SIA licensed security guard(s) in a highly visible and branded vehicle to your premises should an alarm be triggered. They can be on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Simply put, we can go to any site or location, nationwide, and confront and remove any unauthorised person(s), report criminal damage and theft and contact the local authorities to report the incident.
This can all be handled without the need for you to be there – or an employee of yours - keeping you out of harm’s way whilst quickly, efficiently and professionally dealing with the situation in hand. What’s more, our security officers are all fitted with body cameras, which if needed, can be used as evidence in court.
