Having a security and fire system in place is an important step in protecting your home or business. However, simply installing a system is not enough. It's important to also have your system monitored in order to ensure that it is functioning properly and that you will be alerted in case of an emergency.
A monitored system provides peace of mind, knowing that someone is always watching over your property and that help will be dispatched if necessary. In the event of a fire, burglar alarm, or other emergency, seconds can make a critical difference. Don't take chances with the safety of your home or business - make sure your security and fire system is monitored.

A monitored alarm system is a security measure that provides an extra level of protection for your home or business. It is connected to a central monitoring station and the police through a telephone line (also known as a digital communicator) or GPRS units such as DualCom or RedCare. This allows the monitoring station to be alerted of any activity detected by the alarm system and take appropriate action. In the event of criminal activity on the property, the monitoring station will contact the key holders or in some cases the police to dispatch a response team. This quick action can help prevent further damage or loss and ensure the safety of the property and its occupants. The monitoring level can be customized to meet your specific security needs or insurance requirements, providing you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your property is well-protected. Don't hesitate to contact us for a free site survey or for any further information about intruder alarms.
In addition to contacting the police in the event of an emergency, a monitored alarm system also provides the added benefit of having a central monitoring station monitoring your property around the clock. This means that there is always someone watching over your home or business and able to act in the event of an emergency, even if you are not there. This can provide an extra layer of protection and give you peace of mind knowing that your property is being watched over by professionals.
Another advantage of a monitored alarm system is that it can often qualify you for discounts on your insurance premiums. Many insurance companies offer discounts for homes and businesses with monitored alarm systems, as they are seen as a lower risk. This can save you money on your insurance costs and help offset the cost of the monitoring service.

Fire alarm system monitoring is a crucial aspect of protecting your business, especially if you own a HMO (House in Multiple Occupation). By having your fire alarm system monitored, you can ensure that it is functioning properly and that you will be alerted in case of an emergency. In addition, professional monitoring can provide a faster response time in the event of a fire, which can be especially important in a HMO where there may be a larger number of occupants. In the UK, fire systems must meet the standards set by BS-EN54 to be approved for monitoring. This includes requirements for the system's design, installation, and performance. By choosing a fire system that meets these standards, you can trust that it has been designed and installed to the highest standards of safety. In addition to meeting these standards, it is important to choose a monitoring service that offers 24/7 monitoring and a fast response time from the fire brigade. By ensuring that your fire system is monitored by IDS Global (UK), you can have peace of mind knowing that your business or HMO property is protected.

Self-monitored burglar alarms allow you to keep track of activity at your home or business without the need for a central monitoring station. These systems can contact you directly via phone or a dedicated app when the alarm is triggered, alerting you to any potential security threats. Additionally, many self-monitored systems offer the ability to control the alarm remotely using a smartphone app. This allows you to arm or disarm the system, check the status of the alarm, and receive notifications of any activity from anywhere with an internet connection.
One of the benefits of self-monitored systems is that there are no long-term contracts involved. With a self-monitored system, you have the flexibility to manage your own security and respond to any potential threats as needed. Whether you are at home or away, you can have peace of mind knowing that you have control over the protection of your property.
Keep in mind that some existing systems may not support self-monitoring. If you are considering self-monitoring, be sure to check if your system has the necessary internet connectivity and app compatibility. If your system does not support self-monitoring, you may need to upgrade to a newer system or add on additional components in order to take advantage of this feature. While self-monitoring can be a convenient and cost-effective option, it's important to carefully consider the potential risks and limitations. While you are responsible for monitoring your own system, you also need to be prepared to respond to any emergencies or security threats that may arise.
Maintaining and testing your security and fire system on a regular basis is important to ensure that it is working effectively and meeting the necessary regulations. In addition to having your system monitored, it is also important to regularly maintain and test it to ensure that it is functioning properly. This can involve tasks such as testing the alarm, replacing batteries, and checking for any damage or wear and tear. At IDS Global, we ensure that our security and fire systems meet the standards set by British Standards (BS) regulations in order to be approved for use and monitoring. These regulations include recommendations for maintenance and testing of the system to ensure that it is functioning properly. By following these recommendations and regularly maintaining your system, you can help to prevent problems before they occur and ensure that your system is always ready to protect your home or business. Neglecting to maintain your system can put your property at risk and may also void any warranties or guarantees that come with the system. To ensure that your system meets regulations and is ready to function as needed, it is important to follow the BS guidelines and regularly maintain your system.
