What Happens Inside a 24/7 Monitoring Center

Burglary and fire are two primary threats that can greatly impact your business, valuable assets, employees and customers.

In fact, the average burglary takes less than 12 minutes, and fires become life threatening in less than two minutes.

Due to the severity and swiftness of such dangers, security companies utilize a monitoring center to help minimize damages. When a threat encounters your business, the monitoring center alerts you and the authorities. This around-the-clock awareness improves response time and mitigates risk. Here’s how:

Help at a Moment’s Notice

Businesses that utilize a monitoring service have a distinct advantage when it comes to emergencies. If any alarm at your business is triggered, a signal is sent to the monitoring center, where experienced operators are available around the clock to dispatch the right authorities to your location.

For example, if a criminal were to break in to your business:

  • First, an audible alarm is triggered, alerting occupants and/or intruders of an emergency.
  • Next, an event-specific emergency signal is sent to the Monitoring Center, where operators are available 24/7.
  • Then, an operator calls you (or a designated contact) to verify the alarm.
  • Lastly, if unable to verify, the operator dispatches the appropriate help and calls your emergency contacts.
