Atlas Security is adding a range of tech-enabled services to its offering in the UK following the opening of a new control room.
The new facility is designed to support the adoption of technologies that facilitate the growing trend towards ‘blended’ manned guarding and systems security contracts. The management of security, in addition to Atlas’ FM and cleaning operations, are to be integrated nationally.
Solutions include remote monitoring of CCTV, intruder and fire alarms, remote access control, and an intelligence platform with automated client communication in the event of incidents and emergencies. The control room also supports mobile and key holding services, disaster recovery, environmental monitoring, and loan worker personal protection.
Utilisation of these technologies ensures fast and efficient responses to alarms and emergencies, with the control centre providing a valuable support for clients and staff from operatives who have a robust understanding of the contracts the business is looking after.
Fran Bennett, the company’s Control Centre Manager, says: “The new control centre is a fantastic facility, with industry-leading capabilities.
“The launch of this space shows that Atlas is committed to creating the best work environment possible for its employees and furthering the professionalisation of control room operations for its clients.”
Gary Stanton, Atlas managing director, adds: “The technology we’re using and the operational capability it affords, puts us in an excellent position to manage our future growth and the very largest contracts”
“First and foremost, however, it ensures the comfort, safety and convenience of our people.”
The control room opening follows the redevelopment of the company’s London office.
