• 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’ safety strategy.

    Intruder alarm monitoring is a key part of your business’s security. Having an alarm system in place is crucial, however if the alarm activates when no one is there and monitoring is not in place, you would not know until you next entered your premises. Monitoring gives your commercial premises the best level of protection by immediately acting on an intrusion, increasing the likelihood of the burglary or criminal activity being stopped and caught, with the aim of minimising theft or damage.  


    • WFP Fire & Security will install a monitoring device during your intruder alarm installation or when taking over the maintenance of your existing intruder alarm.
    • You can tailor the monitoring response to suit you, i.e. set the response to alert the police 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 an intrusion does occur, 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.

    Alarm monitoring is the connection between your alarm system and an Alarm Receiving Centre, which communicates a signal in the event the alarm is activated.

    The Alarm Receiving Centre then acts on the instructions you’ve set up, either to call a keyholder initially or the emergency services, or both. You can have monitoring set up for your intruder or fire alarm, and if you have both, these can be connected so whichever alarm is activated the relevant emergency service (police or fire brigade) will be called.

    Businesses are not legally obliged (except specific premises, such as care homes, due to the vulnerability of the occupancy or products involved) to have alarm monitoring, however most businesses opt for it to ensure the safety of their staff, building and equipment. Many intruders, for instance, know that most businesses nowadays have a burglar alarm installed and so this alone won’t always be a successful deterrent for a determined intruder. Monitoring enables nominated keyholders to be alerted as soon as there’s a disruption on their premises, with a rapid response from the police to attend, if deemed necessary.

    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 police instantly.
