Alarm monitoring is an essential security solution that provides 24/7 security coverage for your home or business. Instead of a reactionary response, alarm monitoring proactively protects your life.
Property Crime and Burglary
In 2017, 108.4 people per 1,000 households were victims of property crimes. Most people assume that burglaries and property crimes only occur when no one is home, but this isn’t true. Home break-ins are common, and the Department of Justice reports that someone was home for 28 percent of burglaries and 7 percent of these people were also victims of a violent crime during the incident.
Protection from Fire
Seconds matter once a fire starts in your house. Most people are unprepared for fires because they never think that it will happen to them. Per the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA), Fire Departments respond to one home fire every one minute and 18 seconds. Around seven people die each day in house fires in the U.S. The NFPA also reported that cooking caused 21 percent of all home fires and injuries. It’s the leading cause of home fires.
Alarm monitoring gets emergency responders to your house within minutes once the system detects fire or smoke. It’s one less thing for you to worry about as you’re trying to get your family out of the house safely. If you’re not home, you’ll receive an alert on your smartphone at the same time that the alarm monitoring center notifies first responders.
Alarm monitoring doesn’t just help with fires and burglaries; it alerts when certain hazardous environmental factors present such as carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is a deadly, odorless gas produced by burning wood, propane, oil, charcoal gasoline, or other fuel. Many people die before they realize there is a life-threatening problem especially when they sleep.
Alarm monitoring also alerts you by smartphone if a tornado is coming so that you can get your family to safety. It can warn you of other dangerous weather as well.
Technology today doesn’t require cables and wires to work. All you need to connect to alarm monitoring to receive lifesaving alerts is a cellular connection dedicated to the alarm system in your house and an instant signal to the alarm monitoring center.
