Monitored Systems

Corstorphine Security Systems are established specialists in the supply and installation of remotely monitored alarm systems.

Simply detecting intrusion is not enough. Help must be summoned without delay.

A monitored alarm system – connected to a 24 hour monitoring service is the answer.

Traditional bell-only alarms may alert staff, but outside business hours they offer little protection.

Police forces will not respond to a ringing bell unless there is evidence of an offence in progress.

Consequently most insurers insist on monitored alarms. These provide 24 hour, 365 day monitored by skilled operators in a remote centre, confirming alarms with sequential, audio or visual verification, ensuring that police, keyholders or service engineers can be alerted in seconds.

False activations are filtered out, avoiding the risk of losing police support.

Remote monitoring gives you peace of mind that your business is protected 24 / 7 / 365!

Most alarm systems can monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (providing they meet the current ACPO policy). When your system is activated a message is sent to the Alarm Receiving Centre or “ARC”.

The ARC will call the premises to see if you are OK or a mistake has been with the alarm system, then if appropriate will call your keyholders and or Police*. We can suggest the best remote monitoring solutions for every circumstance and budget.

Digital Communicator

A digital communicator is a device that connects your alarm to the phone line and sends alarm messages to the ARC. (some alarm panels have built in digital communicators)

DualCom is a totally integrated dual-signaling device using both telephone and radio paths.

This combination ensures an alarm signal can be transmitted despite deliberate or accidental failure of either path.
