The real key to a security solution is how quickly you will have a security guard at your home or business following any alarm activation. There is no point in investing in a monitored alarm system if your security guard is miles away or busy with other work, takes 45 minutes or longer to arrive. This is where Rapid Response is different, and where our name originates. We treat alarm responses with the priority they deserve and our system plans to have your security guard onsite inside *5 – 15 minutes every time.

Rapid Response offer its commercial and residential clients a competitive alternative service, our standard procedures for alarm responses:


In line with each customer’s specific requirements, high profile, uniformed Officers in clearly identified vehicles, will visit and inspect premises at agreed frequencies. Accurate data on each visit can be provided and the use of warning boards on the exterior of a building can be an effective deterrent for would-be vandals and intruders. In addition, we can provide a range of added-value services such as checks on fire extinguishers & hoses, flood watch, staff welfare checks, bag searches and people escorts. Our security patrols will ensure:

  • Your alarm system is armed
  • All doors are closed and secure
  • Windows are sealed and latched
  • Gates are shut and padlocked
  • Fences have not been compromised
  • Cars are locked and secured
  • Lights, heaters, air-conditioning, machinery etc are all turned off
