Looking for an Alarm Response Service?

By utilising Taybar Security Services, you will be benefitting from a team that is specifically trained to safely handle issues, our team will be able to make critical decisions that diffuse or deter a situation escalating and support the protection of your business and staff. It may be that you simply require non-emergency responses for aspects such as maintenance workers, cleaners or out of hours working etc. We provide reports for every alarm activation, including the steps taken after a false alarm to provide you with peace of mind against potential break-ins and vandalism.

Whether you are a business or homeowner, our keyholding and alarm response service ensures only a trained security officer attends your premises, checks for any signs of breach, vandalism, or distress, and ensures the premises are safe. Many businesses choose our keyholding service as it allows their business to remain safe and secure, limited sets of keys are required allowing a full audit trail of whom and when the premises have been visited.

Often, businesses have their staff attend alarm activations. This could leave your site exposed, as staff are not really trained to deal with risky situations, leaving your teams vulnerable and isolated. You also risk contravening the Lone Worker Policy and may fall foul of the Health and Safety at Work Act.

Taybar Security provides keyholding and alarm response service which is backed up by our 24-hour control centre. When alarms/CCTV activations are triggered, our control centre receives the call and they locate the closest mobile patrol vehicle, which is being tracked by GPS monitoring. They are then sent to your premises, collecting keys from our local office, on average responding to activations within 15-20 minutes.

Our officers check for signs of breach or vandalism, or reason for activation. They then enter premises checking for reason for the activation; faulty alarms, sensors, cameras, rodents/insects and water leaks are just a few of the common issues alongside serious break-ins. Our officers secure the site, resolve issues wherever possible or deal with relevant trades and the authorities to ensure the site is fully secure and operational for your business requirements. Reports are then emailed over to your team the following morning highlighting reason of activation.

This is where Taybar can help. By appointing an approved security company for keyholding services and alarm response, you can rest assured that your property and your staff wellbeing is protected around the clock.

- Frequently Asked Questions -

What does Keyholding mean?
Ultimately, keyholding is the duty of caring for the keys of an organisation or business. Typically speaking, this is carried out by a senior member of staff or a selected employee. This is so that they can open up in the morning and lock up at night; although, this also means that they’re the initial point of contact upon the alarm being triggered.
What is a key holder in security?

A keyholding service is where all keyholding duties will be performed by an external company, such as the Taybar Security team. We will be responsible for opening up and locking your business premises each morning and evening. Similarly, we will be responsive in the instance that the alarm on your premises is triggered. Ultimately, a keyholding service carries out all the duties of your standard keyholder so that the worries and anxiety are taken out of the business owner’s hands.

Why Use a Keyholding Service?

When using a UK keyholding service such as Taybar Security, you can be sure that any alarm activation will be attended to promptly by an experienced individual. Not only does this put business owners and managers at ease about the safety and security of their company, but it also boasts convenience. This is because any keyholders within the business won’t need to stop in their tracks to attend to a triggered alarm.

Furthermore, these quicker response times will result in fewer losses and less damage if your company is faced with criminal activity. As a result, utilising Taybar Security will save your company’s finances, despite the service costs. This is because you won’t have to pay for expensive repairs or replacements to the same extent as you would in the absence of a keyholding service.
