An Independent Control Room Service

Serving your clients, working for you. As an independent control room, our operatives file reports without bias, comment or assumptions. You can outsource to us on a full time or out-of-hours basis - we’ll tailor our services to your exact requirements.

Our monitoring services are comprehensive, from intruder alarms, CCTV surveillance, fire detection, lone worker, environmental sensors and GPS tracking. We also provide back-office support for many of the security businesses that use our monitoring services. In almost all cases we use existing digital communicators. Our monitoring services can easily and inexpensively scale as your need grows.

New Alarm Receiving Centre Connections

Over the past months, we have seen significant growth in the number of security installers connecting their new and existing systems into the Amba ARC.

New projects include:

  • Ported intruder alarm and CCTV monitoring services for a large North East security business
  • Fire monitoring via a Midlands security installer for a 5-star hotel
  • Security monitoring for a third-party installer who look after a high-value goods retailer
  • Intruder alarm monitoring via a specialist security installer for a drinks distribution centre in the South West
