Who, what, where, when and so much more

Wouldn't it be great to have someone keep constant watch over your property and to alert the police to any intruders?

With Pointer's Event Monitoring Centre (EMC), established in 1982, that is exactly what you get, whether you are a residential or commercial customer.

Pointer's EMC is a state-of-the-art centre which can monitor all types of signalling data, including the standard Intruder Alarm signal methods, but also the latest in IP communications on a 24 hours a day, 365 days a year basis.

EMC Accreditation

Pointer's EMC is approved by National Security Inspectorate and has achieved Gold Certification for the monitoring of both fire & intruder alarm systems, and has achieved BS EN ISO8418 for the monitoring of CCTV Systems.

Pointer's highly trained staff currently monitor over 9,000 systems which come under the categories of multiples (large scale clients with multiple sites), individuals and foreign connections (smaller security companies who use Pointer's EMC to receive signals from a site that they have installed).

The centre itself is highly secure with superior protection against fire and lightning. In the event of the rest of the building becoming incapacitated the EMC would continue to operate as normal as it has its own in-built automatic air intake, standby servers auxiliary power supplies and generators.

Remote Monitoring Vox Pop

In the past with the need for a hardwired connection to be able to provide quality video transmission we designed our security systems from the centre out.


It was difficult if not impossible to be able to remotely monitor live video. With IP whether over wired networks or wireless we can design from the outside in making it much easier to specify systems to meet with customers requirements than by our requirements being decided by the limitation and costs of cable runs.


With the increased availability and lowering costs of broadband connections remote video monitoring has also now become much more affordable.
