Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

This would be my first monitored system and im in need of a bit of help 

 

Thanks

Hi Bruce 

 

Welcome to the forum

 

I am a little confused by your question though.

 

The only reason the ARC would want you to set it up as confirmed would be for Police Response, and the only way you would get Police response would be if you are approved, and in order to be approved you should be familiar with BS and how the product you are installing works.

Why? Why can't you have confirmed alarm without police response?

The question you should be asking is why would you? The second question you should ask is why would the ARC dictate what signalling you need for a keyholder only system, when you are their customer?

If you have no police response , why wouldn't you still want a call to say we received a confirmed signal?

If my alarm was keyholder only I would want to be informed as soon as it went off. There is not a lot more I could do about a confirmed intruder except panic.

Hi Guys 

 

Thanks for the quick response to my question . I will go back to the monitoring company and question then as to why they want this if its only necessary with police response.

Why not have confirmation, provides a bit more information on activation imo. 


Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

I agree, however, I can only think of one thing worse than getting a call from the ARC to say your alarms gone off when you are sitting by the pool in the south of France, and thats getting another one to say its just confirmed. If you have Police response its a different matter at least you know that the Police have been informed and are hopefully responding. But thats just my opinion I would just rather not know.

the normal relationship is you specify the channels you want them to monitor?

Breaking door down etc 

 

What's difference ? How long do police have to respond by?

The difference is thinking it is likely to be a false alarm, as apposed to its likely not to be a false alarm would make a big difference to the enjoyment of my two weeks in the sun. I have seen far too many burglaries, but that is probably why I have Police response and three keyholders all quite close, one is a taxi driver so he will get here before the Police .

I dont think there is a limit to how long the Police have to respond, they seem to be pretty quick down this way, normally on site within 30 mins, we had one with 7 mins. Confirmed intruder signals less false alarms, and they are more likely to be the real thing.

I suppose that depends on where you live
