For increased security you may wish to have your security system monitored. A monitored alarm is one that is linked via the telephone line, IP network, or cellular network, or a combination to an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC).
An ARC is a permanently manned high security call centre whose staff are dedicated to monitoring security systems and notifying the appropriate Authority – i.e. keyholders, the police, a guarding company, or the Fire & Rescue Service in the case of a fire – if there is an activation. An ARC is bound by strict legislation which ensures the highest standards of operation.
