Commerical alarm monitoring is the most important part of your commercial alarm system. This feature ensures that you will know when the alarm is set off at your business. The alarm can be monitored through traditional phone lines or wireless service.
We recommend wireless radio back-up instead of cellular back-up. This is because thieves can purchase cell phone jammers and disable your commercial alarm monitoring services. Many businesses have already cancelled their phone lines and have adopted wireless monitoring through radio back-up. As a result, they achieve a reliable and safe way to monitor their alarm system.
Keep in mind, insurance companies provide discounts for businesses or homes who have their alarms monitored.
How does commercial alarm monitoring work?
When the alarm is triggered, our commercial alarm system will send a signal through your land line or wireless monitoring. After this happens, we will call to verify that it is a real alarm. If no one answers, we will dispatch the authorities. We will also call the designated phone numbers to notify you that the alarm has been triggered. We also monitor if your power is out, if there is a low back up battery on the alarm, or if you are having trouble with the bell circuit.
What happens if you disconnect your phone line and do not notify us?
We have no way of knowing if you have disconnected your phone line, Your alarm panel will display a trouble light or beep. The phone line is the only way a signal can be sent – so if there is no phone line then we do not receive a signal. Test your system to make sure that your alarm is working. Contact us for information on wireless monitoring if you have discontinued your traditional land line.
No phone? No problem!
All of our alarms can be monitored without a traditional phone line. We use a radio back up system which is more secure than cellular back up that can be disabled by cell phone jammers.
