#Wirelesswednesday – Save Time & Money with an Alarm Handler


It is calculated that the Uk loses over £1 billion in GDP due to false alarms. An example of this is with fire incidents, throughout 2015/2016 the HSE reported of the 529,000 incidents attended by Fire and Rescue Services in England 40% (214,000) were false alarms. 

Here at DCRS we can offer integration into your Alarm Systems, meaning you never miss a message and have a set escalation plan in place to ensure your trained personnel can ascertain the route of the alarm quickly & efficiently.

The cost saving this system would offer from just one prevented alarm would pay for the software, and you do not have to limit it to your fire alarms.


How can voice and data notification systems help your organisation? 

By integrating your alarm escalation procedure into your radio communication/mobile phone systems you will receive instant notification to your device while you are on the move. It allows your designated user(s) to either halt an alarm escalation should you find it to be a false alarm or escalate it to the required level and begin emergency procedures.


What system do I need to have in place? 

DCRS can offer integration into Motorola MOTOTRBO Radio Equipment and/ SMS.  Each message can have its own keyword such as:

  • Keyword FAULT dispatched to engineering
  • Keyword FIRE to trained fire personnel
  • Keyword STATUS OK, logged, but not sent
