Temporary monitored alarm systems have been around for a number of years, but it was not until May 2012 that this specific area of the security industry got its first ‘Code of Practice’ which was produced by the SSAIB in response to demand from system installers and produced in consultation with the insurance industry.
The code has been released in response to the steep increase in the number of vacant/abandoned properties, and the need to provide short-term, cost-effective protection for these vulnerable sites. One such solution, from Eddisons' dedicated Vacant Property Compliance team, is ‘RemoteZone’ - a complete solution for remote property security.
The RemoteZone has the flexibility to protect all internal and external areas of a building whilst simultaneously protecting specific items of plant and equipment located at the premises.
It meets and exceeds all aspects of the new SSAIB Code of Practice, achieving ‘Enhanced’ standard and providing a successful solution to a wide range of clients, where there is a need for a short-term, flexible alarm service. The system is typically rented rather than purchased, enabling clients to budget their costs. Flexible contract terms ensure that clients are only paying for protection as and when required. This system has been successful in the field, resulting in multiple arrests at different sites.
