What Does Alarm Monitoring Mean?

With so many types of security systems out there, it is only natural that you would be lost in the meaning and functions of them all, especially when they are so closely interrelated.

One of the most common forms of security that you may come across is back to base monitored alarm systems. Your main control panel will report to a monitoring centre when an event is generated and the trained, professional operators in the monitoring centre will ensure that the appropriate people are notified and sent to your residence.

This type of monitoring utilises a system of sensors which are installed around the home’s openings, including doors, windows and garages. It can also include motion detectors, tamper sensors, smoke detectors and more. If any one of these is triggered, the people that need to know will be notified with a simple phone call from our operators.

The Benefits of Back to Base Alarm Monitoring

There are a number of benefits that can be reaped from having an up to date alarm monitoring system installed in your home. These include:

  • Fire Safety: Most monitored alarm systems include smoke detection as part of their system, something that is vital in any home. In the case of a fire, your alarm system will notify the required services to ensure that you and your family are safe, and the emergency can be tackled correctly and quickly.
  • Deterrence for Thieves: Burglars tend to look for easy targets when canvassing homes to break in to. If they notice signs of security monitoring, from cameras to alarm systems, it is likely that they will avoid the home, and avoid the chance of being caught.
  •  Reduction in insurance premiums
