Responding to genuine alarm conditions to provide an immediate deterrent to intruders
SMC Vision is at the forefront of remote video surveillance, protecting people, premises and assets. Holding both BS8418 for monitoring of the detector activated CCTV systems and BS5979 for approval for alarm Receiving, ensures a professional and approved approach to resolving remote security solutions.
A team of dedicated and highly trained, licensed operators will respond to your detector activated alarms, 24/7.
Viewing the area of activation, our operators ascertain the most appropriate action to manage the activity at the site. By using the images presented by the detection system, remotely interacting with audio systems and escalating issues to police or other authorities, we ensure the most appropriate level of support and only involve staff, guard patrols or key holders where absolutely necessary.
All alarm response plans are created to reflect each site's unique circumstances and are developed to combat known issues, with the opportunity to develop further response plans to adapt to evolving business needs.
