Burglar Alarms



The purpose of a Burglar Alarm System is to act as a deterrent, to detect an intrusion at the earliest possible moment and to provide an audible local warning. In addition, Burglar Alarms that are connected to our Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) will ensure that the Customer’s key-holders are informed and the Police are called to the property.

Having a Burglar Alarm System fitted can seriously reduce the risk of your home or business being broken into, especially if they are professionally fitted and well maintained.

When choosing a Burglar Alarm System, many factors will include the size of the property, the budget, the type of alarm, the style of monitoring and how you wish to operate the system.

A wide range of detection is available for your specially designed system and is available throughout London and Nationwide from MRFS Group; for example electromagnetic contacts, infra red, dual technology, pet, break glass, and vibration detectors together with panic buttons, we can help you decide the right Burglar Alarm System for your premises whether domestic or commercial.

ACPO Policy BS8243/PD6662:2010

False alarms waste Police time and resources, and with this in mind the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) have introduced a set of requirements for intruder alarm systems. These are designed to reduce the number of unnecessary Police call outs. These requirements cover three aspects of the burglar alarm, and are as follows;

1. Alarm Un-setting

The incorrect operation of alarm keypads generates around 94% of Police visits to site, according to statistics. To combat this problem, ACPO insist that all systems are unset via ancillary control equipment (ACE) such as key fobs or key switches. The proximity key fob is the most convenient and efficient of these, and one we would recommend for the majority of our customers.

2. Confirmed Alarm Signals

Since October 2001, the Police will only respond to a confirmed alarm signal. The system must generate two independent activations before it can be classed as a confirmed alarm, and we achieve this with a sequential format of two devices acting in sequence. This is the most user-friendly way to conform to BS8243/PD6662:2010.

3. Compliance with the ACPO Policy and BS8243/PD6662:2010

All monitored burglar alarms are categorised by ACPO into the following response levels;

Immediate Response

If an offence is believed to be taking place, the Police will attend, dependent on the urgency of competing calls and available resources.

No Police attendance.

Should two false hold up or panic alarms, or three false confirmed burglar alarms occur within 12 months, the Police will withdraw their response to this particular system. This response will only be reinstated once MRFS Group have provided a written application to the Police providing evidence that the system has been free of false alarms for three months and that the cause of these false alarms has been addressed.

Where the Police response is withdrawn, a key holding company can be employed to address any alarm activations. They will be able to provide a guaranteed response to any alarm, with a security guard available to ensure the continued security of your premises. A site safety hazard letter is required by the CPO to advise on any potential hazards which may be faced by security officers. Your application for a Unique Reference Number (URN) will begin once this has been received alongside with payment of the Police charge.

Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) Monitoring

Our approved NSI Gold Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) can monitor your premises 24/7.

MRFS Group guarantee 100% resilience as our ARC has two centres in different locations offering accredited high-integrity monitoring.

We tailor our dispatch and communication procedures around your individual needs which help reduce your false alarm rate and drives down your costs.

Our highly trained staff are friendly and helpful experts. Because we have a separate team who deals with daily administration, they focus solely on alarm handling, and are always available to give advice and discuss new types of signalling.

We use the world's most sophisticated alarm handing software, which integrates with all recognised signalling technology and has the added advantage of enabling engineers and end users to place systems on test, through an operator, VRT (Voice Response Terminal), MASweb (using a computer) or MASweb Mobile (using a smartphone).

Both ARC's are BS4737/PD6662/BS8243, BS5979: Cat II, NSI ARC Gold accredited and offer each other a hot redundant stand-by. This helps eliminate day-to-day congestion, and would allow either ARC to take over without interruption to service in the event of a disaster.

MRFS Group monitors Burglar Alarms, Fire Alarms, Panic Alarms, Lone/Vulnerable Worker Alarms, Gas Detection/Pressure Alarms, and Freezer/Boiler Temperature Alarms; in fact we can monitor virtually any premises or piece of equipment.

MRFS Group monitors the latest in alarm signalling technology including Digital Communicators, DualCom, and RedCare signalling devices.
