Not just a monitoring centre...
We take advances in technology seriously. Not enhancing our services with the latest in alarm monitoring and receiver technology means we get left behind. With our strong technical team we are dedicated to striving to be the leaders in alarm monitoring. Current advances in wireless communications and IP monitoring platforms, enables us to offer a cost effective solution to our customers.
What can we monitor?
Universal Security & Surveillance has the ability to monitor a wide range of Alarm Panels in the Australian market. Some of these include systems that use formats such as Contact ID, 4+2, and Ademco High Speed just to name a few.
In the effort to ensure that our customers have the most advanced, efficient and easy to use technology we have invested in new and innovative solutions including GPRS, IP and CCTV monitoring.
What governs our Response Time?
Universal Security & Surveillance utilises two centers at the Grade A1 level and have national disaster recovery infrastructure in place.
Universal Security & Surveillance national monitoring platform, coupled with our dual redundant configuration allows our Monitoring Centre operators, in the event of a natural disaster or technical issue to divert calls and all workload to either Monitoring Centre seamlessly.
To maintain the Grade A1 classification (under AS2201.2) the Monitoring Centre must be able to maintain levels of compliance for the actioning of alarm events. Under the Standard, alarm events are categorized and have specific response times that must comply by attaining 95% of the actionable events (type specific) within the Standard to be able to successfully maintain the A1 Grading.
Additionally, 24 Hour technical and operational support ensures that service delivery is maintained at a high level. By utilising the latest in Key Performance Indicators (KPI), we are able to effectively roster and coordinate the workforce effectively for peak conditions.

Mobile patrols can be dispatched to an alarm response upon a customer’s request.
Alarm Verification Monitoring
CCTV monitoring gives the Monitoring Centre staff the ability to view the site from strategically placed cameras throughout the premises. The Monitoring Centre can verify the alarm activity and pass this critical information onto police or an alarm response service. This timely and effective method of monitoring could reduce the risk of loss or damage to your customer’s assets.
What Can CCTV Alarm Monitoring Do For Me?
When an alarm is triggered a VMD (Video Motion Detection device) or the alarm system onsite will send an alert signal to the Monitoring Centre. When the alarm is received in the Monitoring Centre, the customer's instructions will be followed. It is from here, contacts can be called, a mobile alarm response vehicle be dispatched, or police advised of an event on site.
Universal Security & Surveillance has the ability to support various types of communication methods. From the traditional dialler to IP alarm monitoring and we are constantly investigating new and improved ways to enhance our service.
Cost effective and easily installed, the Dialler is popular for residential and small commercial applications.
DIALLER WITH GSM BACKUP
As an enhancement to the Dialler, the GSM backup device will still be able to communicate if there is a fault with the main communications line.
TELSTRA SECURE WIRELESS
Telstra Secure Wireless has been designed to deliver a virtually seamless transition path for existing Securitel customers and those looking for higher levels of security than simple dial-up monitoring.
GPRS - GENERAL PACKET RADIO SERVICE
Similar to the Securiteltm, GPRS utilises the Digital Mobile Network and sends data at a specified interval, allowing the Monitoring Centre to identify a loss of communications.
