the convenience of arming and disarming your alarm in your pocket, from anywhere in the world (with internet)
For a higher level of security, SAMS Southern Highlands recommends the connection of your alarm system back to base. It’s like having someone watch over your premises 24 hours a day.
Back to Base Monitoring is provided through on site electronic equipment and a reporting device – commonly becoming a GPRS unit. Previously, copper PSTN phone lines were used for reporting.
Our 24 hour monitoring station operates in accordance with Australian Standard AS2201 and is fully computerised, actioning individual burglary zones, duress, fire, low battery, mains power fail and auto test signals.
This means that when the system is armed, if entry is occasioned without turning off the alarm the system sends a signal to the base station and one of your key-holders are contacted and their instructions followed. This monitored back to base alarm system assists to further protect your people, property and profits.
SAMS Southern Highlands can monitor your home, business or organisation with state of the art equipment and highly trained specialists 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is a full range of Back to Base monitoring services that we can provide. There are several classes of security alarms monitoring dependent on your requirements, and Bellbond can provide back to base monitoring within any of these classes.
With NBN rollout the landline is changed to digital and the line is lost, therefore the system cannot communicate with the monitoring system. In place of the landline, a GPRS unit can be installed that offers improved 24/7 monitoring.
GPRS sends alarm signals from the alarm panel to the monitoring centre via Telstra mobile data network. The transitions are fast, inexpensive and as there are no phone lines to fault or cut, GPRS is a more secure method of monitoring alarms.
SAMS Southern Highlands can install a GPRS unit to an existing alarm, or in conjunction with a new system.
