Break-ins at your facility can be costly and disruptive: Approximately 1 out of 5 small businesses in the U.S. has been burglarized.
Today, protecting your home or business with an alarm system is almost automatic. It makes sense that if you have life or property to protect, you should have an alarm. What many may not know is that the most important element of an alarm system is the monitoring.
If your alarm is monitored, someone will quickly respond to the calls initiated when the alarm signals reach the central station. Heavy duty locks, deadbolts, burglar bars, and motion activated lights are very helpful deterrents that will slow down an intruder. However, they do not alert anyone that an attempted break-in is occurring.
Only a monitored alarm can notify someone of a break-in. This is how you get time on your side. We even wrote a book about the importance of having your alarm monitored with a cellular alarm transmitting device. Get your free copy here.
Additionally, your local fire department may require you to have your alarm monitored at a UL Listed central station. Your insurance company may also require this. Note: Almost every insurance company will provide a discount on your home or business insurance policy with a monitored alarm system in place. Contact us to get the documentation you need to receive this discount.
