How does the monitored alarm work?

Monitored Alarm connects to an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) which is a remote central station manned 24 hours a day 365 days a year, via your telephone line. This permanent phone connection enables the alarm system to send signals as and when necessary to the ARC which in turns verifies the signals received and take appropriate actions. For instance if the alarm system detects an intrusion, it immediately sends an intruder signal to the ARC via the phone line. Within seconds the ARC is able to verify the alarm signal and decide on appropriate course of action – to alert you or one or more of your nominated keyholders and if necessary alert the Police via an agreed communication channel.

What happens to my alarm monitoring if my phone line is cut?

Alarm Monitoring of your premises requires an active phone line. The risk of vulnerable phone line can be overcome by adopting a dual signalling method such as Redcare and DualCom.

Can I have a house alarm that is not monitored?
