Having your security system monitored by a central station means that you have a team working for you 24/7 to ensure your home or business is protected at all times. If your alarm is triggered the central station is notified immediately and will determine if it’s a real or false alarm.
If your smoke detector is monitored and the alarm is triggered, the central monitoring station will dispatch the fire department immediately. This can mean the difference between having a structure to come back to or just a smoldering foundation by ensuring that there are no delays in calling for help.
If your carbon monoxide detector is monitored, it can also mean the difference between life and death given that carbon monoxide is a silent killer and can easily render you unconscious. You can sleep easy knowing that the alarm monitoring station is looking out for you and your family’s safety at all times.
If your business has a sprinkler system, that too can be monitored from a central station so authorities can be dispatched immediately if there is an emergency.
Central station monitoring also limits false alarm calls to the fire department, police, ambulance, etc. In some municipalities, you can be fined for sending false alarm calls to the authorities so it’s important to have a monitoring station that calls you to confirm if an alarm has been triggered falsely or not.
You can also use your 24/7 on-call support to ask any technical questions you may have about how your security system works. This is especially helpful if you run into trouble and forget how to arm or disarm your security system.
Switching over to local alarm monitoring has become somewhat of a phenomenon over the last few years. Even if there is a monitored alarm system in place, residential and commercial properties alike are making the switch over to local central station monitoring.
Using a local alarm company with a local number is beneficial because you know you’re speaking to call specialists that are from your area, neighbours helping neighbours. A local office also allows their alarm technicians to provide on-site support with a relatively short commute time.
