What Does 24/7 Alarm Monitoring Really Mean?

alarm-monitoringWhat does it mean to have a monitored alarm system? Why is it important that the alarm monitoring is happening 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year?

Without alarm monitoring a security device placed on your home is little more than an elaborate noise maker. If you’re not home then you can’t respond, and you will probably lose your property.

If you are home things get even more dangerous. An alarm that is not summoning help gives you a slim chance to get out of the home before the situation escalates. If the situation does escalate and the invader is armed then you and your family could be in real danger. Without monitoring, there would be no guarantee that you could summon help on time.

Home invasions happen right here in Charlotte every day. Please don’t think that this could never happen to you. Here’s one from recent news.

The police won’t accept a direct signal from an alarm system. They would spend most of their time responding to false alarms, which would spread them too think to do their jobs. And a fair amount of alarms are still triggered by operator error!

So monitoring, and the monitoring center, becomes the solution. When your alarm system triggers an event it calls the station. The station then calls you to find out what’s going on.

When you set up your alarm system you also set up a special password. That is the password that you give to talk about the alarm event. If nobody answers the phone or gives the password in a certain period of time then our call center immediately notifies the police of a suspected break-in. This means that the police are on their way fast in a situation where seconds count.
