Valve manufacturer Dynamic Controls has moved to Sonitrol alarm monitoring from Stanley Convergent Security Solutions (Stanley CSS). Dynamic Controls, based in Oldham, is a manufacturer of high and low pressure cartridge valves, manifolds, reducing stations and fluid/gas systems for critical applications, such as submarines. Its factory needed round the clock protection.
The intruder alarm system had come to the end of its life and Dynamic Controls was dissatisfied with the service from its then supplier, as well as the rising costs. Stanley removed the conventional intruder alarm system and replaced it with Sonitrol Audio Impact. When an alarm is triggered, the system alerts Stanley’s ProtectionNet Customer Service Centre and transmits the sounds of the break-in attempt and a code describing the location of the activated audio sensor. Operators listen to determine the nature of the noise and take action, such as calling the police or resetting the system. The access control installed by Stanley CSS at Dynamic Control’s site is also run through the Sonitrol system for integration. Andrew Hill, Facilities Manager at Dynamic Controls, says: “the system is brilliant and it’s very simple to use. Stanley’s customer interface is fantastic – all the staff are polite and knowledgeable and are lovely to deal with. It’s nice to be treated as a human being!”
Sonitrol alarm monitoring is available exclusively in the UK from Stanley CSS, which is a division of Stanley Black & Decker (SWK). For sales information please contact Stanley CSS on 0844 254 0032 or via www.stanleycss.co.uk.
