PSM celebrate 7th anniversary – and join BSIA
Secured by Design (SBD) member company Professional Surveillance Management (PSM) have celebrated their seventh anniversary, in addition announcing that they have joined the British Security Industry Association.
Kerry Jones, Professional Surveillance Management said: “It’s been incredible to see how far we’ve come since our early days, from building an impenetrable CCTV monitoring bunker from scratch to being recognised throughout our heavily regulated industry with top awards and accolades.
“Of course, we wouldn’t be where we are today without our loyal clients, incredible installers, and dedicated staff, both past and present – so we’d like to extend a big thank you to each and every one of you for making the last seven years so fulfilling. We can’t wait to see what we achieve together over the next seven!”
In addition to celebrating their seventh anniversary - seven years which has seen the company combating criminality by defending businesses and households across the country and beyond – PSM have announced that they have joined the British Security Industry Association (BSIA).
Kerry adds “We’re pleased to announce we recently joined the British Security Industry Association, who have been shaping our sector for over 50 years. PSM met the standards and criteria needed to be admitted, and we look forward to working closely with the team to make a real difference.
“BSIA is the voice of the security industry; they support and encourage excellence, educate the marketplace on the value of quality security, and influence the industry’s future – so it was a no-brainer for us!
“Membership comes with plenty of perks too, from exclusive insights to networking opportunities. As a company, we don’t subscribe to the ‘if it’s not broken, don’t fix it’ mentality – we’re always looking at ways to better ourselves even further. Once you get too comfortable with the status quo, that’s when things stagnate and begin to slip. For us, continuous development is crucial to delivering the premium service our customers deserve.”
Hazel Goss, Secured by Design, said: “Congratulations on your 7th Anniversary PSM, it is a pleasure to be working alongside you, opening up the world of Alarm Receiving Centres and the excellent work that goes on behind the scenes as well as seeing the fantastic results you have in fighting crime. Gaining accreditation with BSIA is another brilliant step forward cementing your place within this arena.”
Professional Surveillance Management (PSM)
PSM offer remote monitoring CCTV solutions and a diverse range of surveillance services, with their monitoring system ensuring that when an intruder breaches a restricted area of a premises by triggering motion sensors, an immediate alarm containing CCTV images is transmitted to PSM’s NSI Gold fully accredited 24 hour Remote Video Receiving Centre.
PSM’s trained operators visually verify the cause of alarm and take necessary and immediate action – including issuing audio warnings - to deter potential criminals, tell them they are being monitored and warn them that the emergency services are on their way. The accomplished team of senior operators each have over 20 years’ experience working in a control room environment and responding to alarm activations, with the team preventing numerous break ins during the last year alone.
PSM’s entire operations, including alarm receiving software, is created, developed and controlled in-house, allowing a bespoke and tailored monitoring service. Software can be adapted to suit individual client and installer needs, rather than them having to fit into the limitations of ‘off the shelf’ software.
