We treat all “late to close” (meaning your security system hasn’t been armed within your schedule) and “out-of-hours-entries” (meaning the system has been disarmed outside your schedule) as exceptions. This is because a lot of theft is internal. When we receive one of these events, we’ll attempt to contact the premises in accordance with your response plan using the site numbers you’ve provided.
Sometimes we can’t contact your site due to problems such as night switches, voice mail, incorrect in-dials, cancelled phone lines or mobile numbers. If we can’t make contact with anyone on-site, your nominated Alarm Response Plan (see below) then comes into effect.
If you want to operate a schedule it’s important that you get your staff to notify us when exceptions occur by calling the Monitoring Centre on (02) 6372 9047.
