The security services we provide

At Farsight, we only ever provide remote monitoring.

We don’t provide any security installation or maintenance services, which means installers can feel reassured that we wouldn’t take any work away from them.

They’re the installation experts, and we’re the remote monitoring experts.

Farsight Security Services and Optex Japan

In 2006 Farsight was bought by Optex Japan: the world’s leading manufacturer of intruder alarms and CCTV passive infrared detectors.

Listed in the top tier of the Japanese Stock Exchange and with a reputation for investing in market leading companies, Optex operates on four continents with an annual turnover that is in the hundreds of millions.

As a result of Farsight becoming part of the Optex Group, the expertise of our CCTV monitoring station has been combined with a global security powerhouse.

Together, Farsight and Optex are able to provide unrivalled range and quality of remote monitoring services.

The future for Farsight

Our ambition is to continue to grow as a leader in the field of remote monitoring with innovative alarm receiving and CCTV monitoring services. We became the UK’s first BS8418-compliant remote monitoring station in 2005 and are still leading the way with better training and staff development. Plus, we continually drive down response times (the time that our operators take to answer alarms as they come in): a vital part of remote monitoring.
