Key Holding & Alarm Response

Key Holding and Alarm Response with a 20 Minute Response Time

An alarm is only as useful as the people who respond to it. With a keyholding and alarm response service from Magenta Security, your site will be secured within 20 minutes by one of our world-class security guards.

Magenta Security’s keyholding and alarm response security guards are of the same calibre as our static guards. That means that they carry a verified SIA license, have passed CRB backgrounds checks, right to work checks and English language tests.

Our rapid response time and the quality of our security guards makes our keyholding and alarm response service ideal for customers who want an effective security solution at a low cost.

How We Guarantee Peace of Mind

Most importantly, we never use self-employed or sub-contracted security guards in our keyholding and alarm response service or anywhere else. Every security guard who works for Magenta Security is a dedicated, full-time employee who you can confidently trust with the safety of your property, assets and information.

Should the worst happen, our keyholding and alarm response security guards will secure your site and alert the emergency services immediately. All keys are kept in sealed safes at our secure control room to guarantee their safety and are delivered by a second security officer. Detailed reports of any incident will be immediately emailed to your designated contact along with a physical report sent to your address.

Magenta Security also offers a bespoke repair service to our keyholding and alarm response customers, so that any damage to your property can be immediately attended to by emergency glaziers, locksmiths, plumbers or any other required tradespeople. This is all rolled into the same contract, giving you one less thing to worry about if your property is subject to burglary, vandalism, flood or fire.
