What are the benefits of an Alarm Receiving Centre?
An alarm receiving centre has trained professionals monitoring your alarms and CCTV cameras round the clock. They are trained to deal with emergency situations giving increased protection to your business or property.
Controllers who manage lone worker monitoring systems are specially trained to deal with dangerous and stressful situations. Lone workers can face hazardous situations. Hence, having a controller adept at handling such situations is a necessary safety measure.
Alarm receiving centre controllers are trained to remain calm in difficult situations. They are trained to think methodically under extreme pressure situations. Usually, these controllers handle a variety of circumstances and hence are trained to deal with a lot of tough situations.
Those using an alarm receiving centre also receive a faster response from the emergency services. The centre works 24/7 and hence the controller manning the station will immediately call the emergency services once they identify the activation signal.
Accredited alarm receiving centres have a Unique Reference Number (URN) which allows them to contact the emergency services without calling 999. Thus, it is much easier for the alarm receiving centre to contact the emergency services than you.
It can also reduce the cost of your insurance premiums. Some insurance providers reduce the premium on properties that have a monitored alarm system due to lowered risks.
