    Monitored Fire Alarms FAQ's

    Fire alarm monitoring is the process of having your alarm system constantly monitored by a chosen third-party. By nature, fire alarm monitoring gives additional protection out of hours and a faster response time should something go wrong.

    A monitored fire alarm works by being connected to a dedicated third-party, through cloud networking, 3G/4G control or landline. Once an alarm is triggered inside the monitored building, the third-party will be instantly notified, allowing them to call or dispatch the nearest emergency responders to the location.

    Legally, no: a fire alarm does not need to be monitored by a third-party - but it is hugely recommended. Over 60% of commercial fires happen when buildings are empty. With a monitoring package, an alarm won’t ever go unnoticed as the alarm is connected 24/7 to a dedicated expert, who will respond without nerve or hesitation.

    Alarm monitoring typically incurs an additional monthly cost on top of the upfront payment for the alarm system itself. This expense will vary depending on the installers, the equipment and the monitoring package selected.

    Benefits of Monitored Fire Alarm Systems
