Stamp Out Sleepless Nights – Professional Key Holding and Alarm Response

by | Apr 5, 2022 | News

One little talked about aspect of the security services offered by companies such as Glevum is professional key holding and alarm response. We feel it’s important to outline exactly how and why this unique and effective service can help you, your premises, or your employees feel more secure in everyday life. Read on to find out more about why professional key holding and alarm response might be for you.

Rapid response times

At Glevum, we can react with rapidity to any threat or situation that might arise as a result of an alarm being triggered or threat detected. When you have a 24/7 rapid response service you know that we are going to react with both speed and precision to any event that might arise. One of our fully qualified response officers will promptly attend your premises in your absence and deal with all alarm issues in the event of a trigger, taking the steps required to re-secure your premises. In the event of a break-in or criminal damage being inflicted we will then liaise with the emergency services or any other call-out service.

Peace of mind

Knowing that your business is protected at all hours of the day offers fantastic peace of mind, which is exactly what we look for as an NSI accredited security company. Employing fully qualified, licensed, and professional key holders will remove much of the worry and stress that can come from properly securing your business.

Employee and overall business safety

If we consider the worst-case scenario, where an intruder enters your business or premises without prior permission, you’ll want a highly trained professional security operative who can respond with immediate effect to the alert. We can ensure that both you and your employees are kept safe and secure. Hiring a professional security company for key holding services will also prevent any potential disruption to your business or personal time. Your time is your most valuable asset, and key holding services will reduce any of the ‘on-call’ costs that might come from not using a security company, as well as the expectations from staff that they will have to make themselves available.


As long as you inform your insurance provider, using a professional key holding and alarm response service can reduce insurance premiums, especially if those professionals are experienced and competent. As part of the service we offer here at Glevum, we also liaise with the police and provide you with a report for your insurance purposes, keeping you up to date at all times.


Most important to note is that wherever you are based in Gloucestershire, from Cheltenham to Gloucester, Quedgeley to Bishops Cleeve, we are here to assist with your key holding and alarm response needs. We will also liaise with the local emergency services, arrange further callouts, and provide a report of the incident the next day.

In addition, even if a member of staff holds your key, we can escort them when responding to an alarm. This means that our approach is adaptable to a variety of different situations, with customer satisfaction being absolutely central to the service we provide.
