Ares Protection features a state-of-the-art, technologically-advanced and ergonomically-designed control room.
All incoming emergency or technical calls and signals are sent to and dealt with from our head office in Sandton. Our Control room is manned by experienced and trained controllers who monitor our clients’ alarms and site panic systems, via radio transmitter linked to the system.
Ares Protection believes that the value of this type of sophisticated off-site control room versus a single suburb hub, is critical in ensuring that there is no vulnerability or potential risk to
the ‘heart’ of the armed response operation we provide in the Sandton.
The Control Room uses Listener® Software for our core monitoring system. This results in fewer false alarms, more efficient response times, more accurate event reporting and stronger and fluid purpose driven teamwork.
From the control room to the units in the field, the one thing our clients have to be able to rely on,
is a system that works. We believe in being proactive, as opposed to reactive. To prevent the problems before they occur.
Good monitoring software streamlines the entire system.
This effectively saves money, but can also save lives.
