How Does Fire Alarm Monitoring Work?
Protecting your customers’ sites by monitoring your fire alarm installations is imperative in protecting their business. If we receive a notification that your fire alarm has been activated, this is what will happen next:
- Your fire alarm system activates, and RMS receives a signal.
- If the signal is received within your site’s normal working hours, one of our Monitoring Centre team will make contact with your site to check if the activation is a false alarm or not.
- If the signal is received outside of your site’s working hours, our Monitoring Centre team will immediately initiate a fire brigade response.
We always recommend a dual-path communicator for fire alarm systems.
What’s the difference between monitored & non-monitored fire alarms
|Out of hours alarm activations receive immediate response||If out of hours there’s the potential that no-one will hear the alarm, and if so, may not report to anyone|
|More peace of mind against potential out of hours arson attacks||Likely non-detection of arson attacks and substantial site damage|
|Employee risk reduced by not having to attend out of hours alarm activations||Employees put at potential risk by attending alarm activations|
|24/7 support from our expert team of Monitoring Centre Operatives||No out of hours support|
|Potential for reduction of insurance premiums when fire alarm system is monitored||No insurance premiums reduction|
Monitoring of your fire alarm systems isn’t an essential requirement. However, if your customers sites are empty out of normal working hours we strongly recommend remote monitoring.
