Digital Communicator Monitoring
This is a cost effective method of monitoring which sends the alarm signal down the telephone line to the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). Our technology enables the alarm panel to automatically dial the ARC and transmit a signal revealing the status of the panel.
BT Redcare uses non-dialling technology which continuously monitors the telephone line integrity, thereby detecting line cuts and faults within seconds. It there-fore represents a major security enhancement which is fully endorsed by leading insurers.
Digi Air Communicator Monitoring
DualCom DigiAir utilises all mobile networks via WorldSIM instead of a
telephone line to signal the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). It is an ideal upgrade for wired digital communicators as it eliminates call costs and phone charges.
Dual Path Monitoring
This is a unique method of monitoring designed to operate with two signalling paths by radio and telephone line. In the event of an activated alarm, the radio signal is transmitted to the ARC. The advantages of dual path signalling is that in the event of accidental or deliberate line failure, the alarm will communicate over the wireless network.
Essential Group offer total monitoring services on all aspects of Fire, Security, and electrical via our communication solutions.
Only security systems installed and maintained by a certified SSAIB installer reach the compliance standard required by The National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) to authorise emergency services response to your premises.
An Essential Group intruder alarm system that is monitored 24/7 adds an additional layer of protection to a ‘bells only’ system.
On an activation, Essential Group’s Alarm Receiving Centre, will take the necessary action, depending upon your instructions.
For example, this could be a call your nominated keyholders, private physical security, audio challenge (link to CCTV) or the emergency services.
