Every security system can be connected to an Alarm Receiving Centre which is operational 24 hours a day.
There are several methods by which alarm signals can be transmitted through to the Alarm Receiving Centre:
Digital Communicators – Connected to telephone lines to dial the monitoring centre and pass alarm signals.
BT Redcare – Multiple options including PSTN, GPRS and IP/Com
CSL – Multiple options including PSTN, GPRS and IP/Com
The type of monitoring recommended is typically based on the grade of system being installed and the level risk for the property or premises.
BT Redcare options are as follows:
With Essential, you get simple, affordable, wireless alarm signalling. It comes with a SIM card that switches between the main UK mobile networks, so you always get the best connection.
A wireless dual path alarm signalling system with two (always on and always monitored) 4G SIMs. Giving low to medium risk sites twice the protection for both fire and security.
Advanced and Advanced Extra
Advanced gives you home and business alarm signalling that can change with your needs. It comes with two signalling paths for twice the reassurance.
With Ultimate, you’ll get our best alarm signalling system yet – for every level of risk. It uses a private IP connection on our network and comes with a backup, powered by two 4G SIMs.
