    Are you putting your key-holders at risk?

    1. Do you have a procedure to ensure the safety of your attending key-holders?
    2. Who else is aware your key-holder has responded to your alarm?
    3. Who will check on them to make sure they are safe?

    Keeping your key-holders safe should be a top priority for your employees in the case of a breach. They face being compromised or worse still- compromised and alone. Your key-holder and premises are then at risk from intruders.

    Key holding services

    A specialist security key holding company gives you the peace of mind knowing that your business is in safe hands and that your employees are not attending a potentially dangerous situation.

    Professional key-holders

    Our key-holding service eliminates the need for your employee key-holder attending every alarm activation, and therefore reduces the risk to their safety. Instead, they will only be contacted in the case of a real breach. This is how it works:

    Rapid alarm response

    Rapid response to your alarm

    When we receive notification of a fire or intruder alarm activation from either your alarm monitoring station or a dialler system, a security officer or a fully trained and certified security dog team will attend your premises. The use of dog units provides quicker reaction times to any events that may unfold as well as additional protection for the security officer and your key-holder.

    External premises checks

    External premises checks and information logging

    Upon arrival, our security officer or dog team will complete a full external search of the premises to inspect for signs of a breach. Once the search has been completed, with no signs of breach, the security guard or dog handler will scan our onsite near field contact tags (NFC) to verify the time of inspection.

    Hight alert security on breach

    If you have been breached

    If a breach has taken place, once an additional security guard has arrived for assistance, a full internal K9 inspection will take place to locate the intruder/s and detain them, if they are still on the premises. Once the search has been completed, we will then contact your inhouse key holder and the police to attend.

    Securing your property

    Securing your property

    Once your premises have been secured, the attending guard will complete a digital incident report for your file and you will be emailed a copy. Likewise, if you were contracted for mobile patrols these would also show on your personal file.

    Ensuring the safety of your key-holders

    If you still want an employee on-site for all alarm activation’s? we also provide our key-holder escort service. If we receive a call from your alarm monitoring station as an
    escort only, we will attend the premises. A full site inspection is
    then carried out, in some cases with the dog team while they await the arrival of your nominated key-holder.

    Once we are happy the alarm fault/breach has been resolved and the key-holder is safely on their way home,
    we will complete a report and upload to your file and email you a copy.

    If a breach has taken place, we would request that the key-holder remains outside until either the
    authorities and trained guard/dog handler has cleared the premise for safe entry.
