ALARM RESPONSE & KEYHOLDING

Security systems and alarms are critical in keeping your business safe, but if an alarm is triggered, it’s important that the right steps are taken. Action must be quick and decisive to minimise the risk of damage or disruption to your business. In the event of a break-in, the longer it takes for your property to be attended, the greater the chance of damage or theft.

We provide keyholding and alarm response services to businesses all around the United Kingdom. A professional keyholding service guarantees that pre-agreed and effective measures are initiated in the event of an intruder. Not only that, but our round-the-clock service ensures that your location is always in the safe hands of SIA qualified security experts.

RAPID RESPONSE UNITS

Your keys will be kept safe, secure, and easily available to our experienced and highly-trained security professionals, who will leap into action as soon as an issue is identified.

Whenever an incident has been detected, or an alarm is raised, our security officers will be immediately deployed to your site. With our UK-wide coverage, you’ll never be far from one of our experienced security officers. We’ll have expert personnel on-site as quickly as possible, regardless of the time or location. Once on-site, our security professionals will follow pre-determined processes and conduct a comprehensive investigation of your property to determine the source of the alarm activation and take appropriate action.

A Service You Can Trust

Alarm Response

All of our officers are highly trained and experienced in dealing with all manner of call outs including what to do in the event of an intruder being on the premises. We can collaborate with you to develop a set of policies and procedures that are implemented the instant our security team arrives on-site once an intrusion is detected. Their actions will be tailored precisely for the needs of your business and site.

Rapid Response

In the event of an alarm, the response time is paramount when it comes to protecting your business from damage and theft. Luckily, we have keyholding security personnel with UK-wide coverage who can respond immediately to any alarm. Because of our national reach, we don’t subcontract work to local organisations, and your site will only be attended by one of our highly trained keyholders who will follow the agreed-upon protocols.

Opening and Closing the Site

Keyholders don’t just protect the site in the event of an alarm, they also open and close the site at the beginning and end of each day. The keyholder should inspect the property upon entering, deactivate the security system, and turn on the lights. At the end of the day, the keyholder will then inspect the site, set up the security system and ensure the premises is secure before locking up.

Emergency Contact

Keyholders are frequently entrusted to be an emergency contact for the local police or a private security agency that monitors the property because they can reset the alarm system. When choosing a person to perform keyholding duties, this must be taken into account. They must be accessible, accountable, and pragmatic.

Can I Use Site Employees as Keyholders?

Some site managers may consider using their own site employees as keyholders to save costs. However, given that the cost of keyholding is normally roughly £1 per day, this alternative saves relatively little money and, when considering the disadvantages, it’s a false economy. In our experience, the chances of a site employee offering the same quality of service as a qualified keyholder are slim. Given the high value of on-site equipment and materials, any failure to properly respond in the event of an alarm can result in considerable financial and time loss.
