Key Holding and Alarm Response
What is a Key holding Service?
Fed up of being called out of bed when your company’s alarm goes off at 2 or 3 in the morning? Wish somebody else could field those calls and allow you a restful nights sleep?
B J Securities will do this for you. Choose a fixed fee per year option with all call outs included or an alternative of chargeable call outs, B J Securities Ltd will take the call from your Alarm Monitoring Company and mobilise a Uniformed Security Officer in a high Profile Marked Vehicle to check out the alarm.
In the event of a false alarm, the Officer will simply reset your alarms, lock the premises and leave. However, in the event of an actual break in, the Officer will liaise with the Police, Secure the premises if possible and inform the office of the situation who will then contact you only in the last instance if required.
The cost of this service as mentioned earlier falls into two categories:-
- Key holding with All call out costs included – this will in theory allow you unlimited call outs at no extra cost to yourselves
- Key Holding with chargeable Callouts — there is an annual cost for this option, however this is less than the all inclusive option which could potentially allow you to cut the cost by not having call outs included. However, if a call out is made, you will be charged a fixed fee plus vat for the callout and then an additional fee plus vat per hour or part thereof that our Officer is in attendance at your premises.
In line with most major insurers, our typical response time on an alarm call out is a maximum of 20 minutes.
