Fire & Intruder Alarm Monitoring

Monitored intruder systems and remote fire alarms provide your home or business with peace of mind protection against unwanted visitors and disaster. With a Farsight remotely monitored alarm system that is insurance company and police force approved, you can be assured that there is always an experienced professional ready to respond in the case of an emergency.

How does fire & intruder alarm monitoring work?

Why consider a fire and burglar alarm monitoring service?

Farsight’s fire and intruder alarm monitoring service is an essential security solution for those looking to protect their property, whether a business or a home, from intruders and the risk of an undetected fire. By investing in quality monitored alarms for your UK location, you can be assured that your home or business is safe and secure around the clock, whether you are there or away. On detection of a risk, we will immediately contact the emergency services and you or your key-holder, allowing a fast reaction to the suspected security issue and reducing the potential for damage or theft.

Commercial properties

It is common practice for commercial properties, such as offices or shops, to securely lock the premises at the end of the working day. To ensure the safety and security of your business after your keyholders have left, you will immediately want to know if someone has attempted unauthorised access to your property or if a fire is causing risk to your location. With a remotely monitored intruder and fire alarm system, any trigger of the alarm will ensure our Farsight operators will contact you, any listed keyholders and the relevant emergency services.

Residential properties

On leaving your house for the day and setting your home alarm you are assured that a Farsight operator is actively monitoring your systems to ensure rapid fire detection and prevent unwanted intruders. Should your home alarm be triggered whilst remote monitoring is activated, Farsight will act quickly to get in contact with:

  • Yourself or nominated managers or individuals
  • The identified keyholder for your property
  • The emergency services relevant to your detected incident

Consider a Visual Verification alarm monitoring solution

For your added peace of mind that your security is further maximised , we also offer remote monitoring packages that can combine fire and intruder alarms with CCTV images from inside your premises. This together with our CCTV monitoring services can give you the peace of mind that your premises is protected inside and out.

Due to fire and police services in the UK requiring emergencies to be visually verified after an alarm has been triggered, this combination is widely considered as an effective multi-layered security approach, maximising the efficiencies of alarm systems.


Alarm Visual Verification


Visual verification is becoming increasingly important in ‘what happens next’ once an alarm is triggered. Alarm visual verification combines alarm signalling with CCTV images so Farsight’s Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) can confirm genuine incidents that require a priority response from emergency services, reduce false alarm call-outs and helps to protect your URN status.
