How much should I pay for Burglar Alarm Monitoring?
Burglar Alarm Monitoring is a service offered by ESP Security.
Which means when your alarm system is activated by an intruder, the alarm system doesn’t just ring a siren. It also calls nominated key holders and if necessary the Gardai.
Our alarm monitoring can actually tell if there is an intruder in your home and if necessary video the intruder in order for the Gardai to review later.
The typical cost for alarm monitoring and two alarm service calls per year is a very affordable €35 per month. For this fee we will visit your home every six months checking your alarm system is fully operational.
We don’t just monitor your alarm system on your phone line, in fact you don’t need a phone line to have our alarm monitoring.
Peace of Mind
All ESP home security alarm systems are linked via a telephone line to our professionally manned alarm monitoring centres. We monitor your home alarm 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – ensuring that your alarm won’t be ignored and giving you complete peace of mind.
ESP Security Always There
If an ESP Security alarm is triggered it will alert one of our Alarm Monitoring Centres. Once the alarm is confirmed (we filter out false alarms), we will contact you, your nominated keyholders and/or the emergency services. The monitoring option you choose with your home alarm system determines who we contact in case of an emergency (see table below).
Qualifying for An Garda Síochána Response
Following the latest guidelines issued by the An Garda Síochána Intruder Alarm Policy (see www.garda.ie), the An Garda Síochána will not attend alarms from non-monitored systems unless there’s also first hand evidence of a crime, whether from a owner or a member of the public phoning in.
The An Garda Síochána will attend an alarm signal routed via the ESP Alarm Receiving Centre, from a monitored alarm that qualifies for Garda Síochána Response.
