24 Hour Alarm Response
J&J Security offer a 24 hour/ 7 day a week alarm response service. We attend to alarms for more than 30 monitoring companies.
Alarm Responses involve a trained security guard attending your premises to investigate why an alarm has activated. This saves you the hassle and safety risk in getting out of bed in the middle of the night and doing it yourself. Our guards will conduct an external check of your property, physically checking the property and looking for signs of a break-in or attempted break-in. If keys are supplied we will perform an internal check, and reset the alarm before departure.
The guard will report their findings and leave a docket report at the premises. If the activation is the result of a confirmed break-in or other incident, our guard can stay at the site while waiting for key holder or police.
More and more insurance companies are advocating the use of professional alarm services to remove risks from personnel and as a stop-loss in emergencies.
Traditionally, some organisations have delegated the task of alarm responses to one of their colleagues or staff, but this raises serious issues.
- Is reasonable to ask employees to respond to alarm activations late at night or at the weekend?
- Is acting as a key holder part of their contract?
- Have they been trained to a level which will allow them to safely and efficiently deal with the alarm problem?
- Have you shown, as an employer, that everything has been done to protect your employee in these circumstances? Ie if your staff member is knocked unconscious or worse, when will he be found?
Don’t risk your property with a security company run by one man and a mobile phone: What if he is already on a call, in an area with no reception, or has finished work early? Your security is not something you should take chances on.
