    Corps Secure

    Corps Secure, our unique reporting portal and app compliments Corps Monitoring’s bespoke intruder alarm monitoringservice. It provides customers with a live real-time view of their account and full transparency of their portfolio. For example, if a property has been at risk of unauthorised access or fire, then our customer has complete visibility at the click of a button. Additionally, customers are also able to manage their finances and download invoices and statements conveniently from the same place.

    Our Sentinel engineer portal allows engineers to automatically test systems and view all live signals received. This eliminates the need to make calls in order to place systems on test and check signals (however we can still provide this service as and when required), giving the customer more freedom and flexibility.

    The Sentinel administration portal allows customers to have a full admin view of their account, meaning they can make small changes such as running reports or updating key holders. The Sentinel Plus suite allows us to schedule either daily, weekly, or monthly automated reporting. This typically includes portfolio signal summary reports, incident reports and open/close reports.

    Understanding potential threats – Intruder alarm monitoring

    Understanding the key potential threats to your organisation should be the starting point. Unless the likely sources of potential threat are identified, putting measures in place such as intruder alarm monitoring is difficult. Identifying exposure to risk can come from different aspects, such as city centre location, or those close to major public infrastructure including travel hubs, hospitals or universities are more likely to have higher risk of potential attack compared to others. This is because your business might be caught up in an issue at the neighbouring building, for example a fire, an attack or explosion.

    To know your threats and understand them, you should know your neighbours and their potential threats too. If your organisation is involved in or supplies products/services financial services, oil and gas, meat production, animal testing, arms procurement, tobacco, or gambling then you may be at higher risk than other businesses. You should grasp where you sit on the scale of threat, then you can plan accordingly.

    Pinpoint alerts

    Intruder alarm monitoring systems work independently of CCTV, meaning upon forced entry, a signal is triggered. This signal, sent by intruder alarm panel is received at the Corps Monitoring Centre by the SENTINEL team where it can be focused on via single user interface designed for efficient operations. The alert then triggers and prescribed escalation program agreed with the asset customer. In some cases, a customer may wish to be notified first of an alert, followed by the police, and subsequently an email communication may be sent out to specific list of contacts making all stakeholders aware of any potentially dangerous situation.

    With the advanced technology enabled on the intruder alarm monitoring systems, Corps Monitoring Centre can pinpoint which floor an alert signal has been triggered as well as the specific location of the alert on that floor.

    This demonstrates the importance of a working with a trusted and experienced intruder alarm monitoring provider. Buildings remain vulnerable to intrusion or forced entry at times of closure, so a rapid response limits the chances of damage to assets, loss of inventory or damage to the building, its occupants, or any by-standers. An intruder alarm monitoring system also increases the chances of catching the perpetrator and alerting the relevant authorities. An intruder alarm system could quite simply be life saving. Businesses should never fall into the trap of assuming it will never happen to them.

    Commercial intruders

    Someone must take overall responsibility for the security function, regardless of the size of the organisation. The designated person will need to manage the crisis effectively, particularly in important events such as a fire, robbery, explosion, or other emergency. Ensuring that all the necessary procedures are implemented correctly is extremely important.

    Our intruder alarm monitoring services have been working around the clock to keep commercial premises unscathed throughout the various lockdowns over the past two-years.

    The first series of lockdowns in particular saw burglars targeting shops, pubs, and other empty commercial premises, causing a wave of police forces across the UK to carry out extra night patrols in empty city and town centres. As the UK introduces its ‘learning to live with Covid’ measures, this doesn’t mean commercial property owners should be taking their eye off the ball when it comes to the safety of their premises.
