BT Redcare Are Closing Operations.
On February 1st, BT Redcare announced that it would be ceasing operations. This news has shocked the fire and security industry, as BT Redcare is a significant player in the remote monitoring market. As a result, many people are concerned about the safety of their buildings and what will happen in the future.
If you have BT Redcare systems or are one of our customers with a BT Redcare system, you are likely wondering what this news means for you.
How does BT Redcare closing operations affect ASH Security and its customers?
We at ASH Security have been using BT Redcare to monitor our fire and security systems for many years. We were surprised to hear about the recent changes made by BT Redcare. However, we have always been a company that does not rely solely on one supplier for its services and systems. Therefore, we have other options available to us. We want to assure our customers that we are currently in talks with other remote monitoring suppliers to find the best solution for them in the future. Once we have identified the best alternative, we will inform our customers.
We at ASH Security know this may be a concern our customers and anyone with a BT Redcare system, as it also shocked us. However, we first would like to assure everyone not to be alarmed as the shutoff date of BT Redcare isn’t until August 2025, so everyone’s remote connections will still be intact and not affected in the short term. We are working hard behind the scenes, holding talks with BT Redcare and other remote communication suppliers to find a solution for the future, and we speak with all those affected to ensure a seamless transition. We will be contacting our customers on the solutions we recommend going forward.
Any further questions
If any of our customers have concerns about their remote monitoring connection, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be able to provide you with the most up-to-date information available.
As we learn more about the situation as a company and how we plan to address the issue for our customers, we will also post updates on our website.
Finally, ASH Security would like to wish all of our BT Redcare colleagues affected by the announcement all the best for the future.
