Key Holding

Keys are held in a secure environment which is fully compliant with BS7984. In the event of an alarm activation, a fully trained and licensed uniformed security officer will attend your premises. Upon arrival, they will carry out a security patrol, determine the cause of the alarm, report their findings to our 24 hour National Communications Centre and implement the agreed escalation procedures.

  • Don’t worry about having to attend alarm call outs anymore. Relax at evenings and weekends, safe in the knowledge that we will respond to any out of hours alarm call outs.

  • Safeguard your premises and your employees. Our fully trained Response Officers will attend your premises in the event of an out of hours alarm call out.

  • Always have a spare set of keys in safe hands. No more worries about gaining entry to your premises in the event of lost keys

What is Key Holding & Alarm Response?

A keyholding service is where we hold a set of keys for your commercial or residential property so that in the event of an alarm activation we can respond, gain access to your premises, assess the situation and take the relevant action.

Alarm activations can occur at anytime of the day or night.  Attending yourself or sending employees to respond to an out of hours alarm to establish if a break-in has occurred or a fire has started, is not safe, good practice or necessarily practical.

As SIA trained and licensed security professionals, we know the best way to assess and handle potentially dangerous situations.  We can access your premises, assess why an alarm has been activated and take action such as switch off utilities, contact emergency services and in some circumstances apprehend an intruder.

Once we have assessed the situation we then contact your named emergency contact and advise on the action we have taken and any further actions needed.

Security Alarm
All our officers are fully SIA licensed and vetted to British Standards BS7858 to ensure the highest industry standards are adhered to at all times. We provide security guards for both temporary and permanent manned guarding contracts and have a wealth of experience to make sure you know that you are safe in our hands.
