What types of alarms are suitable for monitoring?

Traditional alarms are connected to the monitoring centre via your land line and offer a reliable and cost effective solution in most instances. The latest technology in alarms is IP (Internet Protocol) monitoring, which allows the detection device to automatically and immediately report events to our 24/7 manned control centre.

There are also options for cellular phone and GPRS systems. Read more about alarm systems or talk to one of our installation consultants about the best type of alarm for your situation.

How does alarm monitoring work?

Your detection devices send regular signals to our monitoring centre. In the event of a security breach, motion disturbance or smoke detection, the alarm sends the appropriate signal.

Our trained monitoring centre staff then follow a set of well documented procedures based on the type of alarm signal received. This may include calling nominated contacts, sending one of our licensed security guards to the site or alerting emergency services.

Is alarm monitoring expensive?

Basic alarm monitoring via a landline costs about $1.00 a day. This charge is often small change compared to the cost of a burglary, unattended fire or malicious damage caused to your site and property. For alarm monitoring costs via GPRS, IP or Mobile, contact us for a competitive quote.
