Monitoring centre - A winning recipe.
Securitas-Alert Services is at the forefront of alarm monitoring for intruder and fire alarms. A permanent on-line stream of incoming and outgoing signals and messages supplies our security agents with precise situation updates on the sites we monitor.
The key factors in our ability to protect you are: alarms relayed to our network of central control rooms, rapid response time, sharp image video surveillance, the finest hardware in tracking and tracing devices, and our outstanding telecommunications services.
We take immediate action using equipment checks, cross-checks, telephone calls and, if necessary, deployment of a surveillance team and/or immediate contact with the police and fire brigade.
Private Security Alarm Centres are at the heart of Securitas-Alert Services’ security approach and are designed to operate as virtual control rooms. They can function as - and even be transformed into - safety shelters in disaster situations. Control rooms are notified of any potential security threat (including break-ins, gas and smoke).
Systems are centrally monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 12 months a year.
Securitas-Alert Services' recipe for security doesn't stop at high performance monitoring centre and sharp image video surveillance.
We also offer monitoring services using highly sensitive and effective tracking & tracing devices - the best possible way for customers to keep an eye on cargos, vehicles and high value items.
Securitas-Alert Services has been an early participator in the development of this service and our track record speaks for itself. Originally started in the Benelux countries in 1997, this service now has a recovery rate for stolen vehicles of well over 90% and has been consistently at this level year on year. Using the latest technology, cars, lorries, trailers, tow trucks, special vehicles and even marine vessels can be "marked", so we know exactly where they are at all times - day or night.
If there is an emergency situation, the driver can push a button, and an alarm is instantly transmitted to the Securitas-Alert Services monitoring centre. Here, crisis management trained operators can use satellite positioning and mobile phone technology to pinpoint a vehicle or vessel's exact position and immediately summon the appropriate response.
