Everyone knows that in the event of an emergency, response time is critical. What good is an burglar or fire alarm if it goes off, but no one is notified? Monitoring centers serve as the link between your alarm system and authorities to make sure help is on the way when you need it. You don’t want to wait until after an alarm event occurs to realize you should have had your system monitored. Sadly we get those calls in our office from people who have recently fell victim to a burglary. We prefer to help families and businesses be proactive in staying safe and secure in case of a future alarm event. Here are some reasons to consider having an alarm system that is monitored and not just having it serve as a loud siren.
Did you know that homes without a monitored alarm are 3 times more likely to be burglarized than those with a monitored alarm.
In the event of a break in statistically homes without monitoring suffer 65% more of a loss in the burglary?
If you aren’t home in the event of a fire who will notify first responders? If you have monitored smoke alarms, the fire department will be notified of the fire so they can get there fast. Every second counts when dealing with a fire!
