Alarm monitoring can save vital seconds when you need it the most
Alarm monitoring plays an important role in security, be it home security, building security or facility security. If you want effective alarm monitoring in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Marco Island, Port Charlotte or Punta Gorda, then Alert1 can help. It is a good thing to have one or more alarms. You should have an alarm that will alert you when something bad happens or is about to happen. However, when something happens you need to know about and it is far better and safer if the authorities know about it as well. That way they can help, they can come to the rescue.
Alarm monitoring means you will be notified when something happens but so will the monitoring company. The security or monitoring company is there to protect you, your loved ones as well as your possessions. When your alarm is triggered the monitoring will first contact you to establish if it’s a false alarm. If they can’t get hold of you and can’t establish that it’s a false alarm they will swing into action. For example, if your burglar alarm is triggered the security company will inform the local police. If a fire alarm is triggered they will notify the fire department. When a serious situation develops and unfolds, even seconds are vital and can make the difference between life and death. Alarm monitoring can buy you those vital seconds that can make the difference.
These days alarm monitoring is going mobile in a big way. You can receive notifications on your smart phone or device. For example, if someone enters an access code to enter your home you can be notified via text to your smartphone. Maybe it’s just the kids coming home and that is all fine, but what if they in school, you at work – no one is supposed to enter your home now – you need to know about it. Smart monitoring will inform you.
