Keyholding & Alarm Response | Banham
What is Keyholding & Alarm Response?
We provide a fast response whenever access to your home or business is required. Our secure in-house Keyholding team will look after a copy of your key and dispatch a Banham Key Guard to access your property when essential. From alarm activation response to daily routine visits and everything in between, we are on-call 24/7, 365 days.
We offer different contracts to suit the requirements of any property, including an entry level Keyholding package, as well as various Keyholding and Alarm Response packages. All packages are available to everyone and you don’t need to be a Banham customer to benefit from the services.
Our SIA licensed Key Guards are able to provide an array of services including, but not limited to:
Intruder and fire alarm response
Delivering keys if you are locked out or bringing you a spare set of car keys
Providing access to tradesmen or contactors or attending the premises for deliveries and mail collection
Responding to gas leaks, floods, and power cuts
- Routine visits and inspection of vacant premises
- Taking care of unlocking and locking up your property
- Bringing you any documents you may have left behind, such as a passport
- Switching off heated devices or electrical appliances
- Watering plants, feeding pets and more
Our professional Keyholding and Alarm Response Service gives you the peace of mind that your home or business is always protected, even when you’re away. Our fleet of motorbikes enables Key Guards to provide rapid response to emergency situations. If you’re located outside of London, we will dispatch one of our remote Key Guards in a secure monitored vehicle.
HOW IT WORKS
Our unique Keyholding & Alarm Response Service is designed for everyone, not just Banham customers. We survey your property to determine entry procedure and operational guidelines, collect and hold a copy of your keys, and are on call 24/7 to respond to alarm activations and re-secure your property if necessary.
Our SIA accredited Surveyor will conduct a complimentary survey of your premises, familiarising themselves with the layout of your property and your alarm system, and determining entry procedures and operational guidelines.
We’ll collect a set of keys to your property and issue a receipt for your records. The keys are then sealed, coded and stored in our high-security control room and will only ever be accessed by SIA licensed staff when we need to attend to your property.
KEY GUARD SWIFT RESPONSE
In the event of an alarm activation or call-out request, our Key Guards are quickly dispatched to your property to investigate. If the situation is considered serious, you will be contacted for further instructions; otherwise, we’ll operate within previously-agreed guidelines.
If your premises has been broken into or suffered damage, our team will ensure it’s secured as soon as possible. We’ll arrange for swift emergency services and repairs, and if your alarm system is linked to an Alarm Receiving Centre, we’ll reset it in accordance with the alarm company’s policy.
KEEPING YOU INFORMED
A full comprehensive report will be emailed to you once our Key Guard leaves your property and your keys will be securely returned to our facility where they are resealed and coded.
