• Your insurance provider requires you to implement it.
    • You want to protect your building when no one is there, e.g. overnight and during weekends.
    • You want complete control over your commercial premises’ fire safety strategy.

    Fire alarm monitoring is a vital aspect of your fire safety strategy, as if your fire alarm activates but no one is around to hear it and call the fire brigade, this will allow time for the fire to spread, and increase the likelihood of loss and damage.   


    • WFP Fire & Security will install a monitoring device during your fire alarm installation or when taking over the maintenance of your existing fire alarm.
    • You can tailor the monitoring response to suit you, i.e. set the response to alert the fire brigade first or a nominated keyholder first.
    • As your maintenance contractor, we’ll make sure the signal between your alarm and the alarm receiving centre is always working efficiently.
    • In the event a fire does break out, you will have an immediate response set up and, should you need to make an insurance claim, you will be more likely to have it accepted.

    Fire alarm monitoring is the connection set up between your alarm system and an alarm receiving centre, which communicates a signal in the event the alarm is activated.

    Businesses which are classed as high-risk, for instance a residential care home, are required to have monitoring set up for an immediate fire brigade response.

    Lower-risk businesses which employ fire alarm monitoring may choose between an immediate emergency response and alerting a keyholder first to determine if the fire brigade does need to be called. You will also receive a notification if there is a problem, meaning that you can get to your premises before or at the same time as the fire brigade to aid procedures.

    Popular brands in the monitoring market include CSL Dualcom, Emizon and Redcare (BT). Dual path monitoring is the preferred method of alarm monitoring whereby two channels are used to communicate a signal – one landline and one cellular – giving you a 100% guarantee that the system will call the fire brigade instantly.
