We are connected

We use smart technology to connect and manage fire and security systems for our clients.

Providing a totally connected and managed service not only benefits our clients but also the environment. We are passionate about sustainability at BusinessWatch and strongly believe in adapting and changing the way we do things to provide a more sustainable solution for our business and for yours.

Why we are connected

By providing fully connected systems we realised we can:

  • Reduce vehicle emissions from reduced engineer call outs.
  • Reduce business carbon footprints.
  • Less energy usage due to increased business efficiency.

A fully connected BusinessWatch system improves efficiency, reliability, productivity and is a more sustainable option for your company and employees. Have all your security and fire systems under one managed system.

How does it work?

A connected system with BusinessWatch allows all your security systems to be managed remotely, through efficient communication. Not only do we manage security alerts but also technical faults (subject to system type, software and hardware version and an IP or GPRS connectivity.)

We will identify a fault before your system fails, reducing costs of system downtime, staff waiting times, potential losses from theft and the need for an engineer call out. This is remote, efficient communication at its finest.
