Does Your Home or Business Need a Security Alarm Monitoring System?

Security Alarm

A security alarm monitoring system will ensure that your home or business is fully protected even when you aren’t there. Keep in mind that a monitoring system is different than just the security alarm system. Many homeowners and businesses will purchase and have a security alarm system installed, but they’ll forget a vital component: the monitoring system.

A monitoring system is connected to your security alarm 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This monitoring system will monitor your system so that when a breach has been detected, authorities can be sent to your home or business immediately, within minutes of the alarm having been triggered.

Here’s a brief overview of the benefits of having a security alarm monitoring system:

  • Discourages Burglars – If you have a security alarm system and is being monitored, your home or business will less likely be a target.
  • Automatically Alerts Authorities – As soon as a breach has been detected, authorities are contacted immediately. And, if you are at home or at work when an emergency arises, you can simply hit one of the three emergency buttons – fire, medical or police – to alert them. Response time is reduced dramatically.
  • Captures Evidence – Should a burglary take place, the monitoring system will be able to provide accurate and reliable evidence to assist in the capturing of the perpetrator.
  • Insurance Discount – Homeowners can receive as much as a 20 percent discount on their homeowners insurance for having a monitoring system. Business owners may be able to save on their commercial business insurance policy as well.
  • Fire Monitoring – In the event that no one is home or in the building when a fire ignites, fire monitoring ensures that the fire department receives notification of a fire. Your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms can be wired in with the monitoring system.
  • Wireless Monitoring – Most systems these days do not require a home phone and can actually be operate from your cell phone.

A security alarm monitoring system will not only increase the security of your home or business, but it will also save you money and provide you with peace of mind that things are taken care of even when you aren’t there.
