Certain criteria MUST be met before you can get this service. The Police require that you use an NSI or SSAIB approved company to:
- Monitor and
- Register your system - obtaining a (Unique Reference Number) URN from the Local Police
Without all of the above, and assigned keyholders, your system will not qualify for Police monitoring.

The Police insist on NSI or SSAIB, so should you!
Unfortunately, systems installed by:
- and non-approved security companies
Sounds harsh but, if the Police weren't picky, they'd waste time responding to faulty alarms instead of helping those in real danger.
What NOT to do...
You cannot cut corners by
- Researching the systems NSI Gold & SSAIB companies install
- Buying them offline and
- Attempting a DIY installtion
Maintenance isn't a luxury, it's a necessity
Proper maintenance from an accredited company will help to solve this - which is why the Police stipulate it.
NSI or SSAIB monitoring is key
They can only do this if the alarm has been registered with the local Police and has a URN which, again, is only available if your alarm was installed by an NSI or SSAIB certified company.
You will also need to assign trusted keyholders, so that when the authorities have been contacted, the keyholder can also attend your home to let the Police in.
