Home Security that Works for You
An alarm system has four key components: control panel, window/door sensors, motion detectors, and an alarm unit. Typically, the alarm unit and control panel are installed separately. However, as mentioned in one of our previous posts, our latestGo!Control panels are self-contained. If a door sensor or motion detector is triggered, your alarm system will send a signal (see below for more details on how this signal is sent) to the Monitronics Central Monitoring Station. Upon receiving such signal, a licensed and trained service representative will take the appropriate measures to contact you immediately in order to verify the legitimacy of the alarm. If necessary, the service representative will notify the proper authorities to dispatch emergency services to your home or business.
Don’t get your Signals Crossed
Until recently, the most popular way for a signal to be sent from your alarm unit to the central monitoring station was through your telephone line. The problem with this is that burglars quickly learned they could easily cripple any home security system by finding and cutting the telephone line. Luckily, the newest wave of security systems takes advantage of one of the following technologies to send your alarm signal: Broadband/VoIP or Cellular.Capital Connect‘s alarm systems use the latter method, which is safer, more secure, and doesn’t even require a phone line. In fact, with a cellular alarm unit, all systems are located within your home, so there’s no need to worry about tampering or vandalism by unsuspecting burglars.
5-Stars are Nice, but Diamonds are Forever
Monitronics is a Five-Diamond Certified monitoring company, as awarded by the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) for upstanding a commitment to employing highly trained, certified and proficient operators to handle each emergency customer scenario that may occur. This certification has been awarded to less than 2% of all U.S. central monitoring stations and, as Monitronics CEO Mike Haislip said, “signifies our commitment to being the nation’s top-level central station”.
The Best Way is Two-Way
As mentioned above, when any of your window/door sensors, motion detectors, smoke or fire alarms are triggered, your alarm unit sends a signal to the central monitoring station. As soon as Monitronics receives this signal, an operator will contact you directly through the alarm unit in your control panel to verify whether you are in the home or that a break-in/emergency has occurred and the proper authorities need to be notified. From the Monitronics website:
“Through a hands-free, two-way speaker system, you can talk with the Monitronics monitoring center to alert us of your emergency or situation. Because you’re the only one who can activate the system, your privacy is maintained – and you’re in charge, because Two-Way Interactive Audio Verification can’t happen unless you choose to initiate the system or the alarm is triggered.”
