Stand alone alarm systems are a vital component to a companies security, but for that added peace of mind, assigning a keyholder, or a keyholding service will give the security conscious many advantages in protecting property.

Keyholding is a service where individuals, employees or a security company will keep and safeguard spare keys, to provide access and extra security. In addition they will store alarm codes and be aware of the correct security standards and regulations for storing data and objects.

The keyholder is responsible for providing a response to alarm activations and other security monitoring signals which may indicate a crime is in place or some other type of emergency. They should be familiar with the security systems and trained to cope with any potential danger situations that may occur during a call-out.

Upon receiving the notification, and attending the premises, the keyholder will check visibly everything is as it should be, then enter the premises, turning on lights and carryout a further inspection. If there is an emergency or suspicious activity they will then call the police or appropriate emergency services.

After the emergency has been delt with, the keyholder must then do a final inspection of the commercial premises, including securing windows and doors, ensuring the security system is working correctly, and securing the property again.

There are benefits to using a professional security company to provide a keyholding service for your commercial property. These include having a fully SIA trained professional available 24 hours, 7 days a week to monitor the premises and provide a first response in a timely manner.

The keyholder will be fully prepped on the site layout, and aware of health and safety legislation. The keyholder will have quick access to all the relevant emergency services as well as access to tradesmen in case of an emergency.

In addition a trained security professional will be able to cope with any dangerous situations, as they have knowledge, experience and training for theses situations and can work effectively with emergency services.

It is important to note, some commercial insurance companies require a response service and a security system to be deployed. They may dictate the number of keyholders, and may need a list of response procedures.

Having a monitored alarm and keyholding service in place may also bring down insurance premiums. Capricorn Security offer short or long-term agreements and provide 24-hour cover 365 days a year.
