Why a Monitored System is Better

There are alarm systems that merely sound loud alarms to make a lot of noise. These are designed to frighten off burglars but you simply never know if the intruder has left your property just because of this noise. A monitored alarm system is a better choice because it does more than just make a loud, scary noise. 24/7 monitoring ensures that your family is safe because it sends the proper authorities to your home so if the burglar is not frightened away, he or she will be captured before they can harm your family or make off with your belongings.

Many people simply feel that an alarm system is needed for whenever they are not at home. The simple truth is that a home security system should protect your home whether you are there or not. It should protect your family when you are at home and monitoring can be very valuable for those times when you are away. If your home is burglarized while you are on vacation for instance, notification to the monitoring service will help to alert authorities and ensure that your possessions are safe from burglary. Fire alerts can send the fire department to your home quickly, ensuring that your home, belongings and your pets can be saved from potential disaster. Portable two-way medical notification allows you to go outside your home and still feel safe.

Benefits of Two-Way Monitoring

Two-way monitoring gives you peace of mind by ensuring that someone will be at your side quickly should you need them. Two-way Interactive Audio Verification gives you hands-free communication so you do not need your telephone to alert authorities. A speaker and microphone are built into your alarm system so you can speak directly with a dispatcher even if your phone lines are cut or otherwise interrupted. Privacy is important and we maintain your privacy at all times. Your interactive communication will only be initiated if and when your alarm is triggered. The operator will then ask you for your passcode and see if you need assistance. Even if you are unable to answer, help can be on the way quickly.

The operator will listen intently to identify your emergency which can get help to you much more quickly. However, the operator can only listen to what is going on in your home and only communicate with you if your alarm has been triggered. This allows for a reduction in the number of false alarms and helps to ensure that you have the help that you need when you need it. When the system is in the silent alarm mode, the operator will listen to what is happening without speaking so intruders will not panic.
