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.
