At the core of LiveTalk is a speaker microphone device which connects directly to our monitoring station - allowing us to immediately listen and speak into your property in an emergency situation, and scare off intruders. The LiveTalk speaker / microphone unit allows us to immediately listen and talk into a property. The speaker / mic is normally located in a central part of the property (e.g. a hall way in the case of a house). For larger properties we can install as many speaker / mics as are required.

If you're looking to protect both your property & staff, then installing monitored alarm & CCTV is the best option. AMCO specialise in monitored security systems, uniquely with LiveTalk monitoring. LiveTalk means that whenever your alarm or CCTV is activated, we can immediately listen, see and talk into the property - giving you the peace of mind that someone is their to help 24/7 when you and your staff most need it. AMCO's LiveTalk Lone worker system is a low-cost high-security panic attack button system designed for use in shops, restaurants and bars.

AMCO Academy is a residential course, based at AMCO Academy HQ in Yorkshire, where trainees both live and train on site for the first 3 weeks, and then go out and shadow our existing engineers for the next 3 weeks.
