How Does 24 Hour Monitoring Work?

A monitoring system is essentially a CCTV system merged with a remote monitoring system, which provides additional and effective security to your property. Every commercial and residential property requires security to prevent trespassing or to keep the property safe from intruders. Having a 24/7 monitoring system in place is the best way to prevent home intrusions and thefts.

The system will alert the owner within minutes if a break-in occurs and will take the necessary action by alerting officials. In case of a fire hazard or a medical emergency, emergency services will be notified instantly. You can take instant action if the system is triggered at any time. Here is how a 24-hour monitoring system works:

Things You Can Monitor

 

The primary reason for having a monitoring system installed is to deter intruders and burglars. It can be used to monitor not only your house but commercial property as well. Perimeter sensors activate if any unusual activity occurs and you will be alerted instantly. This gives you the time to contact the police if a break in or intrusion takes place.

Fire & Smoke Detection

 

 The monitoring systems come installed with smoke and fire detection functions. Unlike your typical house smoke detectors that only alert you in case of a fire, these systems quickly notify the fire department.  It helps keepimprove the safety levels of your property even when you are not present to deal with the situation.

Panic Alerts

 

 In cases of break-ins, having a panic alarm will prove to be extremely helpful. A panic alert will instantly alert family members who can take the necessary action. In an emergency situation, pressing the panic button will instantly alert your alarm system and notify the authorities. This is especially helpful for members of your family who are old or suffer from an illness.  In some situations, having this kind of a system can be the difference between life and death.

These are the different ways in which a 24/7 monitoring system can prove to be extremely useful. It not only keeps your house or property safe, but also helps keep members of your family safe at all times.
