Off-site-maintained burglar alarms - help needed for my new gym. Ta

Can anyone recommend one of these firms that put a burglar alarm in your business premises, then remotely monitor it and link it to the police station?

Mind's a blank and can't think of any to google.

Anyone know the contract prices and duration for sign-up? Thanks.

Just signed heads of terms on my new gym unit but it's missing a burglar alarm system.

    I have got one in the house with a mobile phone sim card in it that calls the police station if it is triggered, it was a local company that installed it but it works well.

    You will need to install a redcare phone line if you dont go down the mobile route.

    just hire a pygmy with a shovel, about as much use to be honest.

    Have an alarm at home by SECOM, which is another firm which fits the same stuff as ADT. It was cheaper than ADT and it can have the "phone a friend" option on it too.

    ADT or SECOM Righty, I've got an ADT alarm it costs me £24.99 a month for full monitoring, the system works like an ordinary alarm only it's attached to your phoneline via a switch box which they install, when they've done the job you have to pay £41.00 to the Police to go on their database.

    When your alarm is activated after 20 seconds your phone will ring, if the phone is not answered within so many rings the police will be called out, an alarm like the ADT ones have a 999 priority because they are a monitored system where as the normal alarms don't.

    I've had no trouble with mine in the time I've had it installed.

    That's the sort I'm after mate. Thanks, I'll get onto it.
    This new unit is going to be the nuts - extra equipment, cafe etc etc so want to have top notch security on it from day one.

    Alternatively......

    ....a remote microphone-connected internet CCTV system, so I can talk to the thieving gits from the comfort of my own bedroom. If anyone does break in, I can boom: "Busted, you little *****. Lie down or I'll ****ing shoot ya. Now, slide those pants down nice and slow...."

    You're hired mate - anyone that can do a £400 emergency light repair for £20 must be able to make such a system from bean cans and string, too.

    Don't suppose you have any mates at ADT?

    You can also have a fire alarm set into the system just in case at no extra cost, the company who do the monitoring are based at Nottingham, it's a company called EMCC (East Midland Control Centre), they do all the monitoring for the alarm companies.
