Why Your Business Requires Fire Alarm Monitoring

There are stark differences between non-monitored and monitored fire alarm systems, so it is important you familiarise yourself with the benefits of having monitoring in place.

These are some of the main benefits of choosing commercial fire alarm monitoring services to keep your business safe

  • Continuous Monitoring: Monitored fire alarms are connected to a central monitoring station that operates 24/7. In the event of an alarm activation, the monitoring station is alerted, allowing for immediate response from our staff.
  • External Communication: Monitored systems often incorporate features such as automatic notification to emergency services, providing a rapid response even if the premises are unoccupied.
  • Reduced Response Time: The integration with a monitoring station significantly reduces the time between alarm activation and the initiation of an appropriate response, enhancing the chances of preventing extensive damage.
  • Less Limitations: While non-monitored alarms are effective in notifying people within the immediate vicinity, non-monitored fire alarms have limitations in terms of broader response, especially during periods when the premises are unoccupied.


Frequently Asked Questions

Is Fire Alarm Monitoring a Legal Requirement?

Fire alarm monitoring is not always a legal requirement, but it can be a highly recommended and beneficial practice for enhancing fire safety in many settings.

Secondly is alerting occupants, with a combination of visual and audible aids to start evacuation. Then, initiating an emergency response which will trigger the system and notify the fire brigade.

How Often Should Fire Alarms Be Checked?

Generally, fire alarms should be checked at least once a month to verify that they are operational and free from any faults or defects. Additionally, formal maintenance and servicing by qualified technicians should be conducted annually or as recommended by the manufacturer or relevant standards.

It’s crucial to keep detailed records of all inspections, tests, and maintenance activities to ensure you’re prepared for the event of a fire and so auditors can see that too.

How Does Fire Alarm Monitoring Work?

Fire alarm monitoring involves the continuous surveillance of fire alarm systems by a remote monitoring service by the company of which you choose when installing your fire alarm system.

Simply put, when a fire alarm is triggered, the system sends a signal to a central monitoring station. Then, trained operators at the monitoring station receive the alarm signal and promptly assess the situation.

Fire alarm monitoring provides an additional layer of protection by ensuring that fire incidents are detected and responded to speedily, even when the building is unoccupied or during non-business hours.
