The concept of a monitored alarm system for commercial premises may pose questions to many; however, the idea is that when an alarm is triggered, there is an immediate notification that will notify a monitoring centre. In short; this means that someone is watching over your premises even when you’re not there!


In 1994, Alert Fire and Security was formed and built on our ability to evolve, innovate and grow. To this day, we protect a vast assortment of commercial properties across the North-West, and we always consult with our customers to ensure that their system is designed to their exact requirements whilst complying with British Standards.


One question that we get asked many times; “is security monitoring worth it for my premises?” The answer is both yes and no shouldn’t this just be yes?! Any alarm is better than having no alarm and burglars will target those commercial premises that show the least resistance to protection security. We always recommend that on any commercial property, an intruder alarm is a standard for security. It’s crucial to ensure that you have the right method in place necessary processes to monitor this actively. Ask yourself the question; what would you do if your burglar alarm was activated, would you know?


Over the years, our experience and our passion for protecting more commercial properties have shown that a monitored security solution will provide you with significant peace of mind and ensure you comply with your insurance obligations.


Here are three reasons why your commercial property needs a monitored intruder alarm system when it comes to commercial security.

Alarms are often ignored!


It may come as a surprise, but with a traditional bells only alarm, the vast majority of alarm activations are ignored and often go unreported, resulting in significant disruption for commercial premises. With a monitored alarm solution in place, this will automatically send a signal to a dedicated centre where you will be contacted and notified of the alarm activation.
