Key Holding and Alarm Response


Your property is most vulnerable when it is unoccupied. Evenings, holiday periods and weekends present a challenge to your security. The problem may be as simple as a false alarm, but that alarm could also signal a serious security breach, putting your colleagues, property and crucial documentation at risk. Our key holding and alarm response team can help.

Key holder services

Another reason for companies to employ a trained and experienced keyholding service is the fact that more and more insurance companies are advocating the use of professional keyholder services to remove risks from personnel and as a stop-loss in emergencies.


Traditionally, some organisations have delegated the task of key holding to one of their colleagues, but this raises serious issues.


  • Is reasonable to ask employees to respond to alarm activations late at night or at the weekend?
  • Is acting as a key holder part of their contract?
  • Have they been trained to a level which will allow them to safely and efficiently deal with the alarm problem?
  • Have you shown, as an employer, that everything has been done to protect your employee in these circumstances?

Experienced key holding

At Team Contracts Security Services, we have years of experience in dealing with every aspect of keyholding and alarm response situations.


Our operatives are highly trained individuals who are capable of taking decisions using their own initiative to bring the incident to a safe and satisfactory conclusion.


Alarm response services

All communications are routed via our centrally operated control centre, in Glasgow, which is permanently manned. You will be allocated a designated Security Team for reporting, ensuring straightforward yet excellent service delivery.


Security alarm response time

Our aim is to be at your premises within 20 minutes. On arrival, our alarm response team will conduct a security check of the property, reset the alarm, or wait on site for an engineer if required. Our SIA licensed security personnel can also arrange the callout of emergency contractors should urgent repair work be required.
