Alarm companies can not afford time waisted when a crime is happening. Smart electronic security informs emergency responders if something is abnormal. Security cameras detect a threat and notify police instantaneously. If an active shooter, criminal, or suspicious person is identified the police will be sent alerts instantly. Emergency help dispatched if someone has fallen down, if there is a life safety issue, or if two people appear to be in conflict. Triggers will alert security or police if something is left behind, for instance, a suitcase in a bus station or airport. These behaviors are all able to be picked up on camera and trigger a response team without any employee interaction because time is the key component. With technology on the rise, our alarm system monitoring needs to be fast and secure.
Alarm monitoring services can be set up however your industry best calls for their security needs. We can all appreciate that the security needs of a small business will be different them that of a large institution or manufacturing facility. Security systems can be monitored 24/7 at an alarm monitoring center or can go direct you your personal smartphone via a mobile app. Different levels of threat can also be set to trigger different security stations, areas, or personnel.
Rapid response alarm monitoring provides emergency information to first responders within seconds of a situation occurring. Computer software systems can trigger vital information to be sent to police or first responders in real-time so they can know exactly what hallway or corridor an intruder is in. Alarm monitoring centers will relay necessary data to emergency personal as the situation unfolds.
Are you a business or industry that needs to account for hundreds of employees in an emergency? Or maybe you’re an industry that needs to be accountable for a quick lockdown to protect your customers or employees. Knowing how your risk factors change the services you’ll need is just as important as the security systems put in place. We analyze your risk factors and help you predict possible threats before they happen and secure common known areas of a breach.
Where does an alarm signal go? Being connected in a matter of moments to the right people is essential for problem resolution. Your security systems are set-up how your industry needs it to be. So an alarm signal can go directly to you when off-premises, go to a number of key employees, to security, police, fire, you name it. A combination of these can be addressed by different response system triggers. Glass break sensors can trigger electronic security alarm directly to the police while two-way audio may better address a person attempting to enter the premises after hours. It’s all up to what you decide you need and who needs it. Your industry risk factors play a major roll in dictating what kind of security systems your facility will require.
Open lines of communication can be sent through your smartphone, to the building, to security, to a monitoring center, or directly to emergency personnel. If you’re on property or off, the security systems are keeping you in contact and in control. You have open communication in seconds to all employees, or to help when help is needed.
Rapid response alarm monitoring affords you the options to have alarm signal threats sent to you via smartphone or to any other monitoring center, security, a central station, all employees, key employees, police, fire, practically anything the situation would call for. The programing of the emergency alarms allows for different situations to be sent to separate stations so the crisis can be handled most effectively in the shortest possible time.
Technology allows us to do more than just leave the building. With report access, you can alert firemen or police to exactly where and exactly how many people are unaccounted for and where they were last logged in. Providing fast and accurate information to firemen, police, and first responders within seconds of their arrival helping them to get to people who need rescue quickly when life safety is in question.
Some emergencies require notifying all employees for weather updates or schedule changes. The unpredictability of the weather does not have to keep your employees in harm. Public address can notify them instantaneously when emergency alerts require quick changes in schedule or industry procedures. Advances in technology make a mobile app ideal for mass notification to employees.
If you work with hazardous materials you will want a quick response system that can account for all injured and also contact emergency professionals immediately. Accounting for all employees and how many may need medical attention will be integral for responders to prepare for the level of trauma they are treating. If the chemicals are of such a serious threat a panic button can also be installed to lock down the facility.
Monitored security systems allow you to take control and notify emergency persons or police as a situation is currently in progress. Whereas unmonitored security systems allow you to review and notify police or authorities after the fact. Some businesses do not require such immediate action as a rapid response alarm monitoring system, but still need security with video monitoring being taped and looped for review. The effectiveness of the alarm monitoring system is based on your industry threats and what response is often called for when a breach of these threats takes place.
