Background to AMCO the company
The Alarm Monitoring Company (AMCO for short) was founded in 1995 with the aim to provide the best security services at the lowest prices.
We specialised early on in something called ‘immediate audio-response monitoring’, which is the most advanced form of security monitoring on the market - and today still differentiates us from other security companies.
AMCO was founded by Les Quigley, a former RAF officer and entrepreneur, and is a still a family-owned company with growing involvement from his son Chris. Read more about our history on Wikipedia here >>
Family-owned, nationwide & growing
The Alarm Monitoring Company is now part of AMCO Security ltd, and after 20 years in the market is growing rapidly, and has become the no. 1 independent monitored security company in the UK.
Alongside The Alarm Monitoring Company, AMCO Security has recently launched its SmartSecurity brand - providing specialist services in the space of Smart Security devices. SmartSecurity.Guide launched in March 2017, with SmartSecurity. Store due to launch in May 2017.
To provide efficient nationwide coverage, AMCO is divided into 6 separate geographic teams, enabling us to provide strong coverage across the country:
> London & South East
> North East
> North West
> South West & Wales
Proud to save lives and property for 20+ years
Our biggest achievement across the years is saving lives and saving property. Because of the immediate response nature of AMCO’s monitored alarm systems, we have an unrivalled record in saving both people’s lives and property. For example, how we saved Mr A's life in Preston - interviewed in the following video . . .
Low prices & high quality
Because AMCO is a carefully run family business, our security systems are not only the best but also extremely good value - meaning you can have the best security at a low cost. For example, our monitoring charges are from £16.79 a month (inc VAT) which is a fraction of the cost of many of our competitors.
