Graphic: How a Monitored Security Alarm Protects Your Home or Business

Date: 29 October 2019

A monitored security alarm is the nearest thing to having a dedicated guard on duty at your home or business. Our graphic quickly shows you how it works!

Imagine having a personal security guard that never...

  • needs a break
  • books a holiday
  • turns up late, or
  • calls in sick.

That's what you get with a monitored security system!

As soon as you turn your alarm on, you activate the protection of a trained team of operatives that will respond as soon as an alert is triggered. Our graphic explains the process below...

Blake ARC Security Alarm Monitoring Essex

Automatic Police response to security alarms - not just for banks!

With a suitable alarm that's maintained by an accredited company, you can qualify for a Unique Reference Number to get Police response. So your constant guard has even more back up from the boys (and girls!) in blue.

That back up is even stronger now that Essex has gained extra Police officers and is on track to recruit even more.

The Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) is staffed 24/7, 365 days a year. Your home or business is covered whenever you need, with no downtime. Sleep soundly at night, chill at the weekend and relax on holiday - your constant guard is on duty!

Connect to your CCTV system

Home and business CCTV systems can also be linked to monitoring centres. This gives an extra layer of information that can be picked up and acted on immediately to protect your family home or workplace.

Good quality images can be used for investigation and prosecution by the Police. Much more helpful to them than a cup of tea and a biscuit!
