When transitioning to a new monitoring provider, make sure you cover all the bases. This will help ensure an easy transition to a new alarm system monitoring station.
 
Let’s face it. The alarm industry doesn’t have the best reputation with consumers for customer service. Whether it’s the industry giant, or newcomers that knock on doors with unethical tactics, there are too many companies that aren’t treating their customers the way they should be treated. A quick Google search can tell a lot about a company.
Unfortunately, many folks are trapped in long term contracts for a service they aren’t happy with. Even worse, many homes have security systems that don’t work properly,
use outdated technology, or aren’t properly monitored.  Well, those contracts will expire, and the same security companies that took your business for granted will be trying to get you to stay with their service, or even sign another long term contract.
Don’t do it! If I can help it, you won’t! Even though switching your security company may seem overwhelming, it can be an easy and cost effective process if you follow a few simple steps.  And there are people who will help. Even if we don’t service you area, you can call
All About Security and we will still help you find a better solution.

A central station is a facility that monitors security and other central-station-monitoringsystems for specific situations, most commonly burglaries, robberies, fires and medical emergencies and then makes an appropriate response. The key components of a central station are the equipment used to communicate with the security systems and/or people in need of assistance, the computerized receiving equipment that logs and prioritizes calls for assistance and the professionally-trained staff that responds to each situation. Central stations have different levels and certifications. It’s important to know that not all central stations are the same, but that’s another topic we will discuss  in another post.
