All About Security, make sure you program the alarm monitoring stations number in your phone. What if you can’t get to your phone? That understandable, we can’t always answer our phones. That’s why we offer text messages as alerts as well. For my family, a text message will be read before an unknown number is picked up every day of the week.

For our client’s, it’s just another benefit of being part of our extended family.

great alarm monitoring. The authorities have to show up in a real emergency. False alarms happen, but they can be greatly reduced by being educated and aware. When a home has excessive false alarms it can greatly affect your response time from the authorities. If you are having false alarms call your security company and ask then how you can work with them before it’s too late. We are lucky in the Indianapolis area. Unlike many other counties and states we still get a response from the police with our security systems. We don’t have to pay an extra fee to have an armed guard service to verify our emergencies and than contact police. By reducing false alarms and using proper verification with your home alarm you can help and keep it that way.
