How AMCO monitored alarms work

AMCO’s monitored alarm systems are special as they come with *immediate audio response monitoring* meaning that our highly trained 24/7 monitoring staff can immediately listen, talk and challenge intruders in your property.

The idea of our monitored alarm systems is that we immediately scare away burglars by talking to them via a 'speaker microphone unit' and call in the emergency services if necessary.

The following video shows one of our monitored burglar alarms in action - demonstrated by a customer in Brixton, South London (UK).
