Our Alarm Receiving Centre
Our dedicated team of professionally trained alarm responders man our ARC around the clock, 24/7/365.
Choosing a security partner with an in-house Alarm Receiving Centre is vital; with advanced resources, we ensure that the safeguarding of your premises is always our number one priority.
- Military-grade security provisions
- Back-up and duplicate receiving equipment
- Secure, uninterruptible power supply (UPS)
- Emergency generators
This high level of infrastructure ensures that your alarms are continually monitored in any scenario, including emergencies, severe weather disruption or during power outages.
We employ the most stringent security protocols to ensure that nobody can access the Alarm Receiving Centre outside of our accredited personnel.
Alarm Monitoring Audit Trails
Many Cerberus clients require alarm-monitoring services to protect vacant properties – these are extremely vulnerable targets without the right security protection in place.
24-hour monitoring ensures that empty sites are continually monitored, and a rapid response is actioned should any attempted intrusions occur.
The Alarm Receiving Centre team provides real-time access to security monitoring; this means that you have a complete audit trail to detail and breakdown the sequence of events every time an alarm is activated, or a call-out is required.
This process includes the provision of video and audio footage, time logs and details of liaison with the police and other emergency services.
Audit trails are also useful for managing your site, overseeing work progress and keeping a clear view of the premises even when you are not in attendance. Read more about our alarm monitoring services.
