POLICE RESPONSE ALARM SYSTEMS WIGAN
Argus Fire and Security Ltd are a NACOSS NSI Gold approved company with over 30 years experience in design and installation of security systems. This qualifies Argus to design, install and maintain Police Response Systems for all of our customers Nationwide.
Police Response regulations
Prior to 31st May 2012, all monitored alarm installations had to conform to DD243:2004 & PD6662:2004 to obtain a Police URN (Unique Reference Number), older systems that conform to BS4737:1986 could continue to hold Police Response until such a time when it was lost. On the 1st June 2012 the new regulations PD6662:2010 and BS8243:2010 came in to force. Should your current system lose Police Response and not comply with the current standards, the system will need to be upgraded to conform to the latest standards in order to have the Police URN reinstated.
Police URN charges
The cost of a URN ( unique reference number ) application is currently £52.18 per service, this is only an application fee and does not guarantee that a URN will be granted, although it is very rarely refused. In April 2012 the Police authorities started to require up to two URN applications for Police Response Systems, one for the Intruder and one for Panic Alarms if applicable. Every Police force in the UK is now charging for separate URN’s for Intruder and Panic Alarms. These charges are a one-off, the only time the Police will ever recharge for a URN is if one of the following occurs. Police response is lost and needs to be reapplied for, change in the company name, change in service provider, or change in the grade of system.
Argus staff has undergone retraining to work to the new standard BS8243:2010 for Police Response. We are now installing all new systems to this standard.
Argus Fire and Security specialise in Police Response Systems, we design and install systems from the most basic to the highest security, and most complex solutions available. The police response service can only be provided via approved companies such as Argus and the systems must be off-site monitored through to an approved alarm receiving centre.

Testimonials – What Our Clients Say
“After a recent break at my home I contacted Argus Fire and Security to provide a quotation for CCTV. I was very impressed with the rapid response and detailed quotation, the system purchased is of high quality and I particularly like the remote viewing capability from my mobile devices.
Thank you Argus for a job well done, please pass on my appreciation to your staff for their diligence and professionalism.”
“I have used Argus Fire and Security Ltd for many years. I trust them to provide Intruder Alarms and CCTV for my home and business. Argus has always been trustworthy and reliable and I would happily recommend them as an Alarm and Security company. Thank you, Argus.”
Mr. A Lems.
“Great service from Argus. On the initial assessment they identified that a burglar could break down our door and enter most of the office without activating the alarm. Argus installed a completely new system for much less than I was expecting, and with their remote monitoring that’s linked to a key holder we have total piece of mind.”
