Keyholding and Alarm Response
We are an ACS approved keyholding company with keys and instructions held in accordance with British Standard 7984 and SIA requirements in our Edinburgh facility. We ensure a set of keys and a response officer are on route to your premises when the alarm is triggered.
Our keyholding and response services avoid call outs out for you and your staff in the middle of the night. Our 24 hour control centre will notify the response officer when an alarm is triggered. We aim to be on the site within 30 minutes and our response officers remain on site until a full alarm reset has taken place and any boarding up required has been completed and the property is secure. Detailed reports and photos of any damage are all part of the service.
We run mobile patrols in Edinburgh every night and throughout the weekends so that you can be sure someone is keeping an eye on your business when you are not there.
Our patrols are in smart liveried vans that provide a visual deterrent to anyone who represents a threat. Our officers are uniformed at all times and fully trained on every site we visit. We can provide patrolling records to prove the service has been provided if required.
