Can I visit the Mercury Alarm Receiving Centre to view your facilities?
Yes absolutely we encourage our valued customers to visit the Mercury ARC/RVRC monitoring Centre. During this visit it provides you with an opportunity to view our state of the art facilities and gives you the confidence to place your monitoring requirements with us.

If we appoint you to monitor our location are your controllers always watching it?
No, the majority of the CCTV systems we monitor use are detector activated or are using the latest video analytics for positive detection. While the cameras may be recording daily, we only view images if movement onsite triggers an alarm. During your working hours when the system is unarmed our operators will not view any images. During our survey of your location prior to monitoring we will agree the times with you that you require live monitoring.
