If any detections are activated, the PIR cameras will start recording and an alarm will be sent to our 24-hour monitoring station, who will be able to view the security footage. Our Rapid Response Team will be deployed within 10 seconds to attend the alarm activation and check the premises making sure there are no intruders or unwanted visitors, contact any emergency services if required. Our Rapid Response Team will only leave the property is they feel is it fully secure. Full reports of any Alarm activations are emailed to the customer within 24 hours.
In the event of any activation, a Security Mobile Response Driver will attend site, check the premises/site making sure there are no intruders or unwanted visitors, contact any emergency services if required. The Security Driver will re-set the alarm ensuring the site is left safe and secure.
