Complete Family Safety Includes Home Security Monitoring 24/7
When it comes to your home security, you want to do your diligence in researching who offers FULL home security monitoring services to provide a peace of mind for your family. You can do it yourself or have a reputable security company install it for you. Once installed, the company that installed it should be able to offer you monitoring services. If not, you may want to reconsider who you use as your security system provider.
A Monitoring Service Benefits YOU In Several Ways
The BIGGEST benefit is that when your alarm is triggered, the monitoring center, or central station, is contacted immediately. A professionally trained “Crime Crusher” will call your Ponte Vedra Beach FL home to ensure you are safe.
If the “Crime Crusher” can't get an answer or someone at your home says there is an emergency situation, then he or she will call the local authorities immediately.
An added benefit is that if their central station experiences a power failure or some other service interruption, the company has backup centers that can provide service 24 hours a day. You won’t even notice one glitch on your end. 24 hours a day, seven days a week, your alarm monitoring service will be running flawlessly.
Not only can you have your burglar alarm monitored, but here at Atlantic Security, we can monitor for fire, smoke, flood or some other type of emergency situation. These services are optional and can be added to your system for a small monthly investment.
Speaking of monthly investment…it is not an excessive amount. In fact, if you do your homework, you can probably find some good options out there. Make sure you ask for quotes from different companies and about any specials going on right now.
You also need to know that the sensors and detectors are "smart" enough to send specific information to the monitoring company to enable them to take action without waiting for you to identify the problem or threat for them. This continues to be a shortcoming of many security system companies - they don't know what alerts and alarms mean when they are activated.
There are a number of new and very sophisticated types of sensors, detectors and "switches" you can have installed to increase the safety of your family. But you are wasting your money if the home security monitoring company you choose can't read the signals. This is one of the main reasons to use an established and proven alarm monitoring company that has demonstrated the ability to monitor all types of alarms in all kinds of circumstances.
How do you know if the home security company you are considering is qualified?
Here are the most important questions to ask:
- How long have you been in the home security business?
- What kind of backup systems do you use to ensure monitoring during a power outage or if the wires are cut?
- Are you capable of monitoring at peak efficiency the specific devices I plan to install in my home?
If the home security provider supplies the equipment, you should be able to assume ability to monitor the equipment, but there is no harm in asking for the sake of being certain. These questions will help any homeowner determine the suitability of a security company and its ability to protect your family and property. These questions and assurances of compatibility offer the level of confidence most homeowners expect when they invest in a quality system.
Most homeowners insurance companies will give you a discount on your insurance if you have a security system installed. Call your agent and discuss how much of a discount you can get. A monitored security system will give you the added security and peace of mind knowing you and your family are adequately protected.
