Intruder Alarm Monitoring brings your alarm system to life, linking it directly to the central station, with controllers on standby ready to respond to the signalled emergency. While it is impossible to prevent an attempted break in, the immediate response that monitoring provides, dramatically minimises the potential risk of loss and damage to your property. Radio or GSM Backup is available for High Risk Sites. We also offer operator alert systems linked to switches, sensors or measuring devices e.g. Refrigerated units or Fluid Level Monitoring in Industrial Applications.How intruder alarm monitoring works;
A new Garda policy was introduced on April 1st 2005. It affects the handling of activations from your intruder alarm system as the Gardai will now only respond to 'verified' alarms.
What is a verified alarm? - A verified alarm is an alarm system that has sent in a second signal to confirm the first activation. Many primary signals are accidental as a result of weather or not switching off an alarm in good time. The second, or 'verifying', signal will narrow the probability of an activation being false.
The Gardai will not accept a call from a Monitoring Centre until a Keyholder has been notified and given an estimated time of arrival at the premises. The purpose of the new policy is to reduce false alarms thereby enabling the Gardai to respond to real activations more promptly.
What is a false alarm? - If the Gardai arrive at a premises and the Keyholder is not there the activation will be treated as a false alarm. Garda response will be withdrawn when the limit of three false alarms in three months is reached. If Garda response is withdrawn, the alarm system must have verification technology installed before it can be reinstated.
All Commercial systems must have verification technology installed. Older Residential systems will have Garda response withdrawn after one false call-out and will only be re-instated when verification technology is installed.

Opening & Closing Reports are a valuable management tool for extending supervisory control, gathering performance data and increasing productivity and profitability. These Reports can track the specific user, and the time & date that an Alarm is set/unset outside of normal operational hours. Keyholders can also be notified of any irregularities.
Remote CCTV Monitoring proactively identifies threats before personnel, assets or operations are compromised. Security threats can be detected, assessed and responded to quickly with minimal false alarms so that the Police can be deployed efficiently.
An intuitive web interface also gives the client authorised user remote access to video processed through this system.
