24 Hour Alarm Monitoring, 365 Days a Year!
Getting alarm monitoring for your security system is one of the best ways to protect your home from a burglary. Having a monitored alarm means that whenever you turn on your security system someone will be standing by watching over your home. And the fact is that you are 3 to 4 times less likely to be burglarized if you have alarm monitoring in your home.
Our alarm monitoring service is available 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. As long as you arm your security system, then our monitoring station will be notified if your alarm system is set off for any reason. Plus your alarm monitoring service comes with 24-hour monitored panic buttons. These panics can be pushed anytime day or night, no matter if your security system is armed or not.
Alarm monitoring also reduces your chances of being victimized in your own home. Arming your home security system when you leave your house will greatly reduce the chance of there being someone in your home waiting for you when you return. If you have active alarm monitoring on your security system not only will the siren help scare off intruders but it will also alert our monitoring station to dispatch the proper authorities to check out your home before you walk back in. But remember, alarm monitoring only works if you use it. Be sure to turn on your security system every time you leave the home and at night when you go to bed.
Testing Your System for Proper Alarm Monitoring:
You should test your alarm system once a week, the whole process only takes a few minutes and it can be done anytime day or night. First and most important, call the alarm monitoring station and put your security system on test. Now arm your security system and wait at least 2 minutes for the system to fully arm before walking around your house. Now walk in front of all your motions and the siren should go off. Also, open some or all doors and windows that have security contacts one at a time. Then you can put in your code and shut off the alarm system. Now call the alarm monitoring station and tell them you want to check your signals. Our friendly central station operator should be able to tell you exactly which zones were breached.
