Do you need monitoring?

We understand that deciding to get your Security System monitored is not always an easy decision. Monitored sites are considered non-soft targets. Statistics have shown that damages and losses are less for premises that are monitored. We've compiled this information sheet to help you understand what monitoring is, and to provide you with the best information to help you make a decision.

What is monitoring?

Monitoring (Back-to-base) means your Security System is connected to a monitoring centre, manned by security professionals. Depending on your system, it can be connected via your phone line, internet, or mobile phone network. The monitoring centre will then monitor your property, possessions and staff or loved ones 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This will provide you with peace of mind and also ensures that no matter where you are, if a situation arises, you can be assured that it will be managed swiftly.

What is a graded monitoring centre?

When it comes to securing your home or business, you should always choose a reliable and accredited monitoring centre. This is also significant for insurance purposes. The better Alarm monitoring centres in Australia are accredited with a grading set by Standards Australia - a peak standards body recognized by the Australian Government. The physical security of the Monitoring centre is graded A to C, ‘A’ being the most secure and resistant to attack. The level of service and procedures is graded 1 to 3, ‘1’ being the highest. Our monitoring partner, BENS, is a certified Grade A1 Monitoring Centre. This is the highest security grading defined by the Australian Standard AS2201 set by Standards Australia.
