Alarm & CCTV Monitoring
SwiftSafyre Systems provides a variety of remote intruder alarm and CCTV monitoring services to suit all risks and all budgets; from a simple key-holder only response service through to sophisticated, fully monitored security systems communicating directly through our alarm receiving centre (ARC) to the emergency services.
This is our most cost-effective alarm monitoring service and is specifically designed for the home owner who has a low to medium risk property and would usually have opted for an audible only alarm system. This monitoring system normally uses the property's existing telephone line to communicate with the SwiftSafyre ARC. When the alarm is activated a coded electronic signal is received by our ARC who will then follow pre-agreed actions, contacting up to three key-holders to ensure the premises is attended and the appropriate action taken. Where a customer does not have key-holders available locally, we are able to arrrange a professional keyholding service on their behalf.
This system utilises a standard telephone line to communicate with the SwiftSafyre ARC, which is ideally a dedicated outgoing calls only line. However, any conventional telephone line is able to support this service. When the alarm is activated, a coded electronic signal is received by our ARC who will then follow pre-agreed actions and will contact up to three key-holders together with the police to ensure that the premises is attended and the appropriate action taken.
This is a secure single path signalling system using the BT RedCare network to signal our ARC. Unlike a digital communicator, the telephone line used for this service is permanently monitored by our ARC for interference or failure. In the event of a line fault being signalled to us, the key-holders would be alerted. When the alarm is activated, a coded electronic signal is received by our ARC who will then follow pre-agreed actions and contact up to three key-holders together with the police to ensure that the premises is attended and the appropriate security action taken.
This system provides a secure dual path signalling system. It uses the combination of a standard telephone line and the World Sim cellular telephone network to signal our ARC. Any attempt to interfere with or failure of the radio signalling path would be immediately notified to our ARC via the connected telephone line. When the alarm is activated, a digital coded electronic signal is received by our ARC who will then follow pre-agreed actions and will contact up to three key-holders together with the police to ensure the premises is attended and the appropriate action taken.
IP based signalling systems
In addition to the traditional signalling systems above, we are able to provide a range of signalling systems that communicate via broadband and the internet. These systems do not require a dedicated telephone line and their signals do not generate any call charges. Our technical staff are able to advise clients on the suitability of these systems as they are dependant on the data communications structure present in the client's premises.
With the exception of our Home Response service, all of the signalling systems described above are equally suitable for the transmission of a fire alarm signal. Where both fire and intruder alarm systems are installed at a single location, then a single alarm signalling system can be implemented to operate across both systems.
BMS & plant monitoring
With the exception of our Home Response service, all of the signalling systems described above may be used to alert our ARC to signals generated by a BMS system or other plant. An interface is fitted between the equipment being monitored and the alarm signalling system; in the event of failure or operation of a piece of plant, a specific signal is generated and transmitted to our ARC. Nominated key-holders, engineers or other agreed persons are then alerted by our ARC. Sprinkler systems, mains supplies, UPS systems, generators, freezers, computer rooms, essential building services and safety systems are all monitored by our BMS monitoring systems.
SwiftSafyre Systems offers a broad range of equipment that enables any of our CCTV systems to be remotely monitored. From a simple facility that allows our customers to view their CCTV system on their smartphone or PC from almost anywhere in the world, to high security motion activated monitoring systems connected to our ARC. When movement is detected inside or outside a client's premises, images from the appropriate camera are immediately transmitted to our ARC enabling them to take appropriate action without delay. Our most sophisticated systems enable our ARC operators to talk back to the site via a purpose installed public address system; this can be invaluable in deterring a criminal from continuing with his actions by alerting him to the fact that he is being both observed and recorded.
Monitoring charges for our intruder alarm systems start from around £0.10 per day, so why would you install an unmonitored alarm system?
