What is fire alarm monitoring?
When a building is unattended, whether that be in the evening or during a longer period, there is no time to wait for a passer-by to hear an alarm or spot a fire.
Fire alarm monitoring is a sophisticated system that promptly alerts a dedicated receiving centre when an alarm is activated. This centre automatically and immediately alerts the fire authorities and designated key holders to the fire situation.
