ASH Lock & Secure can offer the following monitoring services:
DualCom DigiAir® is a groundbreaking wireless digital communicator embracing the long-standing concept of a digi and combining it with the multi-network WorldSIM® as standard.
Using patented technology, DigiAir® sends a signal from the protected premises to the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) via a WorldSIM®. This multi-network SIM card can utilise any mobile phone network, offering the best guarantee of radio coverage anywhere in the UK. This offers maximum, reliable performance from its radio path.
- Dial-capture comes as standard for extended panel compatibility and formats
- Call costs and phone lines are eliminated, offering an increased margin
- WorldSIM® is supplied as standard to increase reliability and reduce false alarms
- Gemini Insight® for instant access to performance stats
- Unaffected by Next Generation Networks (NGNs)
This is a cost effective method of monitoring your intruder alarm system. A unit called a digital communicator is fitted into the alarm and utilises a telephone line to send a coded signal down the telephone line to the "Alarm Receiving Centre" (ARC), who in turn contact keyholders and police to inform them of the activation. Suitable for domestic and small commercial properties.
Note: This monitoring method does not monitor for line cuts. If the phone line is cut or the line is engaged signals cannot be passed to the ARC.
BT Redcare Monitoring
ASH Lock & Secure are a BT Redcare Approved Installer. BT Redcare offers a secure form of alarm monitoring. Redcare continuously monitors the telephone line, thereby being able to detect line cuts and faults within seconds. The result is continuous protection, every second of the day, every day of the year. Redcare is fully endorsed by insurers and is suitable for all domestic & commercial properties.
BT Redcare GSM
Redcare GSM offers the highest level of protection you can buy. The BT phone line on which your Redcare GSM operates is monitored constantly and if the line is cut or there is a fault on the line this is signalled to the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) within just 40 seconds.
Every two minutes Redcare GSM also checks that the alarm on your property is working, adding another level of security to your alarm system. In the event of an alarm sensor being triggered in your property, it takes just a few seconds for the ARC to be alerted. If this is confirmed by a second zone being triggered, then your ARC can legitimately contact the emergency services and dispatch them to secure your property.
Redcare GSM also benefits from being a ‘dual path’ system. The main BT telephone line on which Redcare GSM operates is the ‘primary path’. Redcare GSM also provides the reassurance of a back up link, a ‘secondary path’, that uses the mobile phone network to communicate with the ARC if, for whatever reason, the primary path fails. You therefore have the additional peace of mind that comes from knowing if intruders enter your property, a signal will quickly be sent to the ARC, and the emergency services alerted
DigiPlus® is a small device that was developed in conjunction with Vodafone that fits between any existing digital communicator and the telephone line providing an improved and robust signalling solution. It is guaranteed to make all existing digital communicators fully compatible with BT’s new 21st Century Network (21CN) as it uses a 300 band modem. By using 0800 free telephone calls for all alarm and polling traffic it provides a fixed cost solution to varying nongeographical telephone number rates used by most UK Alarm Receiving Centres.
ASH Lock & Secure use the services of Southern Monitoring to monitor our alarms. Southern Monitoring are the largest independent ARC and RVRC in the UK with over 25 years' experience and achieved the first NSI Quality Assurance ISO 9002 certificate. Their high security centres are NSI Gold for Security, Fire and CCTV Monitoring.
