Our Services

Watford Keyholding offers a range of keyholding, alarm response, mobile patrol and other security services for both domestic and commercial sectors.

Keyholding & Alarm Response

As a property keyholder, you must be able to attend your premises within a 20-minute period and resolve any alarm issues. If you fail to do this on more than three occasions, the police will withdraw their response from your premises, and your alarm could be considered a nuisance. As designated keyguards, Watford Keyholding assumes this responsibility on your behalf.

In the event of an alarm activation, we will attend to your premises in your absence and deal with all alarm issues, taking the steps required to re-secure your premises in the event of a break-in or criminal damage. We also liaise with the Police to provide you with a report for your insurance company and keep you up-to-date at all times.

Due to our dedication to high levels of customer service, we can only offer our services within a strict radius of our offices to comply with ACPO Guidelines*.

Contact us to see if your premises fall inside our service area.

Mobile Patrols

We can create mobile patrols to your exact specifications, all of which are logged for information purposes. Our experienced officers submit detailed reports of any unusual occurrences and are fully trained in all aspects of emergency situation handling. Our mobile patrol service is far more cost effective and versatile than employing static guards.

Please note that we do not offer static guarding services directly as this impedes our response times to premise. If you wish to employ static guards we are more than happy to arrange this through an approved third-party company.


We operate in conjunction with all Alarm service providers to ensure we provide our clients with a seamless, effective and hassle-free service. We are also happy to advise on the best intruder alarms, fire alarms, CCTV or Access Control systems to best suit your security requirements. Drop us a line to arrange a consultation.

As part of our service, we are pleased to look after your fire alarm system at no extra cost; we include a detailed report on your fire alarm systems as part of our initial premises survey.

If however you don’t have, or need, burglar alarm systems monitoring and only require a fire alarm system monitored we will be happy to arrange this for you.
