Alarm receiving center by Dussmann

Cutting-edge technology. Superior quality.

We were one of the first providers to establish an alarm receiving center (ARC) of our own. According to DIN EN 50518 and VdS 3138, our alarm receiving centers feature cutting-edge technology and offer high quality in terms of construction, organization, and staffing.

Beyond that, security systems for properties all over Germany and other EU countries are already connected to our alarm receiving center. Our specially trained employees monitor, receive, and process all signals and reports here and proceed to the necessary interventions within our emergency call and service control center, depending on the customer’s wishes and the type of alarm.

We respond in seconds and work reliably and using advanced technologies and methods

Redundant transmission methods, constant availability of our staff, and our in-house emergency power supply mean that our alarm receiving center is always up and running. We also implement the current VdS guidelines for emergency call and service control centers at all times. Within moments, our VdS-certified receiving technology featuring state-of-the-art risk management software (also VdS-certified) differentiates between reporting criteria such as technical hazard alarms, emergency calls, tampering and sabotage affecting systems or facilities, and technical issues.

For you as the customer, our alarm receiving center offers a wealth of benefits – for example, connecting to the center minimizes liability risks. The required availability of 97.94 % is also measured and documented on an ongoing basis and certified annually. Beyond that, our response times are guaranteed, at 30 to 60 seconds for robbery or break-ins and 90 to 180 seconds for all other types of alarm.
