Integrated Operations Centre - Security/Burglar Alarm Monitoring Services

A security or burglar alarm system in its simplest form triggers a loud siren to attract attention when it detects an intrusion. In situations where the siren goes unreported, thieves get away with the loot. For a security alarm system to be fully effective in serving its purpose, it should be monitored around the clock. Certis CISCO offers 24/7 vigilant surveillance of your security alarm system to offer you peace of mind.

Types of Alarms
  • Wireless Alarm Monitoring
    Certis CISCO's wireless security alarm monitoring service utilises the mobile phone network to transmit signals from your security alarm system to Certis CISCO's central monitoring station. Besides monitoring alarm signals, this communications link is polled round-the-clock, thus ensuring effective and prompt response to emergencies.
  • Phone-Line Alarm Monitoring
    A basic package where the security alarm system is connected to Certis CISCO's central monitoring station via the normal telephone network. As it is phone-line based, it is essential that the communication link is not disrupted or tampered with. It is important that the telephone handset is always properly placed back after usage in order for Certis CISCO's central alarm monitoring station to receive the transmission of the alarm signal.
