Code of practice for remote centres receiving signals from security systems

Executive summary

Recommendations for the planning, construction and facilities of manned and unmanned remote centres receiving signals from security systems.

Abstract

This British Standard gives recommendations for the planning, construction and facilities of manned and unmanned remote centres, and for the operation of alarm receiving centres (ARCs) receiving signals from security systems, e.g. intruder, fire, social and closed circuit television (CCTV).

This edition of the standard now includes recommendations on the application of alarm filtering and the use of audible, visual and sequential confirmation techniques to minimize the incidence of false alarms passed to the emergency services or other response agencies.

Annexes to this standard cover notes for guidance of inspectorates; guidelines to provide assistance to third party alarm companies and multi-site companies on the security and technical implications of remote access to remote centre data systems; alarm confirmation techniques and the handling of alarm information from intruder alarm systems capable of providing confirmation; and the form of agreement for authorizing alarm receiving centre to exercise discretion regarding the filtering out of alarm information.
