ALERT SECURITY AND ARMED RESPONSE SERVICES PTY (LTD) has a number of response vehicles on permanent patrol 24 hours a day, 365 days per year, manned by efficient, highly trained response officers. All ASARS officers are registered with PSIRA and undergo a strict selection process before being employed by ASARS
Every vehicle is in radio contact with its local monitoring or control centre, receiving and sending critical information pertaining to alarm activations and incidents.
Armed Response provides a passive and active deterrent to burglars and other threats to your family, your residence and your business.
Upon receipt of an activation by our Monitoring Centre, the Monitoring Centre will telephonically contact the point of activation in order to:
Establish the authenticity of the activation (to prevent irresponsible users of the system from abusing manpower whilst other genuine incidents take place),
Identify the nature of the threat e.g. medical, fire, hostage, etc.
Prepare the Armed ResponsePatrol officer or other emergency services for the threat by forewarning them. Upon arrival at your premises the Armed Response officer will take what action he deems necessary and call for assistance, if this is required.PLEASE DO NOT TEST ARMED RESPONSE BY PRESSING THE PANIC BUTTON! YOU MAY COST SOMEBODY THEIR LIFE!SMS Alert ServiceImportant information
ALERT SECURITY AND ARMED RESPONSE SERVISE PTY (LTD) prioritizes alarm traffic to ensure that operators are able to focus more attention on life threatening and asset threatening traffic. As a consequence lower priority traffic such as power failures, low batteries and communication tests not received from a panel can have a delayed in action time during peak operating periods. Power failures and associated low battery alarms are a constant problem across the country and to date we have responded to such non-emergency alarms by telephoning the client and, where enabled, via SMS as well. To allow ASARS operators to focus their attention on potential threats to our client’s life and property ASARS is implementing an SMS service.It works like this:
Our Control Room will automatically be alerted that there is a low priority signal, i.e. power failure, low battery or communications test failure by your alarm system.
The low priority alarm will report to our monitoring software, and where the SMS facility is enabled, an SMS will immediately be sent to the client to advise them.
The SMS system will await confirmation of delivery from your cellular service provider. Once confirmation is received the signal is automatically logged into the client history.
This will forgo the need for an operator to phone the client to advise of the signal as ASARS will consider the client informed.
If confirmation is not received, your details will automatically be displayed on the monitoring system and a ASARS operator will phone you directly.
ASARS Control Rooms currently deal with a large amount of signals every month. Overactive responses and false alarms cause potentially dangerous delays preventing Response Officers attending to emergency situations.
