Reliance High-Tech operates the most secure and standards-compliant monitoring, communication and data centre in the UK. Its remote monitoring capability can provide continuous protection of your people, data and assets.

Our monitoring and management service gives you the protection you expect from a mission-critical security solution without the need or cost of 24/7 in-house engineers or manned security guards. Reliance High-Tech offers services ranging from out-of-hours CCTV monitoring and lone worker protection, through to entirely managed service hosting and entire security solutions. We can also manage your associated IT infrastructure.

Security and infrastructure as a service

By combining monitoring with its data centre capabilities, Reliance High-Tech is enabling organisations to put their security operations in the cloud. By hosting your security system, our remote engineers and operators can control and manage your entire security solution. You benefit from Reliance expertise and save on on-going infrastructure and in-house IT/systems engineering costs.

Replacing manned services

Remote monitoring can give you all the flexibility and convenience of 24/7 protection – without the need for permanent security guards or systems operators. Whether you have traditional legacy equipment or the latest IP-enabled systems, we can smoothly integrate and support remote monitoring for any type of security infrastructure.

Monitoring Accreditations

The Reliance High-Tech monitoring and data centre is IP-enabled with a services-oriented network infrastructure along with triple redundancy. The centre is tested to the highest accreditations, including BS8418 for CCTV monitoring, BS8484 for lone worker, ISO27001 for data protection and BS5979, so you can be assured of a police response.


Access Control and CCTV

Managed Access

It is becoming increasingly important for organisations to proactively manage the movement of people across different environments. Whether you need to restrict access to sensitive areas within the workplace, regulate the flow of people across a site, or manage the safe movement of a crowd in a public place, Reliance High-Tech can help you to get the best performance out of your access control and visitor management solutions.

Access Control and Visitor Management Solutions

As access control and visitor management systems have become increasingly sophisticated, we have amassed a wealth of skills and experience in the design, commissioning and installation of fully integrated solutions. Through partnerships with some of the world’s leading access control vendors, we help our customers to take advantage of the best available technologies and offer comprehensive support with remote management.

Remote Access Solutions

Handing out keys to your premises carries a number of inherent risks. Remote access is an innovative service that transforms the efficiency of your door management. Using an intelligent lock and a control unit with an integrated GSM/GPRS modem – to communicate with our Remote Monitoring Centre – it enables the secure opening and closing of your premises at scheduled times. The unit will also report back, in real-time, the status of your door to ensure our operators can act quickly to resolve any security issues. In addition, the system can also alert a nominated person via text or email.


CCTV applications that safeguard both commercial premises and public spaces have become increasingly diverse. Video surveillance is the cornerstone of many security solutions, but with so many options it’s vital to choose a system that is flexible, scalable and easy to manage.

Systems range from simple single-camera installations, to complex large-scale multi-camera systems. At Reliance High-Tech, we draw on many years’ specialist experience to identify and deliver systems that match your exact performance needs.

To help you exploit the full potential of your investment, we offer a wide range of value-added services; from bespoke system design, to professional installation and on-going management. We can also support your solution with CCTV monitoring, video-over-IP, distributed digital recording and data storage.


Specialist Support Services

Medical Services

Reliance High-Tech provides a unique support and call-handling service to the custodial and medical services sector. Each week we deal with around 4,500 requests for forensic medical examiners, e.g. to check if an individual is fit to be detained, or to collate intimate forensic samples following serious physical assaults.

Speed and compliance to stringent practices are critical to ensuring both the safety of those detained and the preservation of evidence. We operate to the most demanding Service Level Agreements on call-answering and resource-allocation times.

Utilities and Infrastructure

Our monitoring service supports utilities and infrastructure organisations responsible for supplying and maintaining large gas tanks in rural areas. In the case of suspected gas leaks it is vital that we communicate essential safety information required to isolate the gas supply and prevent wider incidents, explosions and injuries.

Other Sectors

We also develop specialist call-logging applications for customers in a range of other sectors. Reliance High-Tech can log and report all the necessary information on a call request, and highlight and relay important safety and regulatory information to the end user.

  • Impact on continuity of service
  • Cost of litigation
  • Damages
