HPcaughtcruise4When your alarm goes off in the middle of the night, you need the peace of mind knowing that criminals are apprehended before they are able to do any damage to your business.


Verified security solutions are the most effective method of securing and protecting your business.  They not only reduce your false alarm rate, but they also ensure fast police response times and criminal apprehensions. 


Verified alarms help police catch criminals so they don’t get away with your precious goods, endanger your employees or vandalize your property.


What Is A Verified Alarm?


Integrated Sonitrol security technology is unique. We use two types of verified security alarmsaudio intrusion detection and live monitored video - CCTV.  When your alarm is tripped, our unique push technology allows our expert operators to monitor your business live via these audio and CCTV security systems from the central monitoring station.


Unlike traditional alarms, our verified alarms are monitored by highly trained professionals who determine by watching or listening carefully, whether or not a criminal has attempted to break-in to your business.  Our unique audio intrusion technology gives us the ability to listen-in, and our SonaVision live monitored video gives us the ability to watch. 


Think about this for a moment ... as soon as the alarm is tripped, we don't want to frighten the possible criminals away with loud alarm noise, we want to watch and listen to them, to make sure they're breaking in and to 100% be sure that when we talk to the Police, we know that a crime is in progress, and that is why the Police will respond immediately.  


Remember it's easy for professional thieves who commit 95% of criminal activity to never trip a conventional alarm. If they do trip a traditional burglar alarm the siren will go off, but it will not scare them away. They will simply cut the siren wire and then they know that no one is going to show up for 20 to 60 minutes. Because this type of burglar alarm is not verified, the police are certainly NOT on their way … it will most likely be an employee or guard ... and professional criminals are scared of neither.


That is why verified alarms are the best alarms.


Now we know that our Sonitrol verified alarms are 100% accurate and the Police will be called out, you can see how the Police are very motivated to respond quickly, as they want to catch and apprehend criminals who attempt to steal or vandalize your property.  They are motivated to get criminals off the street. When an alarm is tripped, we confirm whether or not a break-in is occurring.  If a crime is in progress, we dispatch the police immediately.  If it is a false alarm, we simply reset the system, and don't call the Police.


Sonitrol's SonaVision CCTV and Audio Intrusion technology is therefore vastly superior to conventional / traditional alarms that mostly use motion-based sensors, or just a simple CCTV recording device to record criminal activity. 


Because of this ability to verify alarms, Sonitrol has the highest apprehension rate and the lowest false alarm rate in the industry.


Why Do You Need a Verified Alarm?


Verified alarms are the most effective security solution for your business. 

·      Result in criminal apprehensions

·      Deter criminal activity

·      Reduce false alarm rates

·      Ensure quick police response

·      Identify criminals as they break-in

·      Provide police with critical information so they know what to expect when they arrive on the scene


How Does Audio Intrusion Detection Work?


Small audio sensors placed throughout your business allow Sonitrol operators to hear the sounds of abnormal activity as they occur inside your facility.  The sound of a break-in attempt and a code describing the location of the activated sensor are transmitted immediately following audio surveillance activation and sent to our central monitoring station.


Once central monitoring receives the audio transmission, an expert operator listens to live audio to determine whether a crime is in progress. You can listen to examples of live audio here.


Professional operators are on duty 24-hours a day, 7 days a week to listen in.  They determine and verify the nature of the break-in sounds and take immediate action as needed the moment an alarm is triggered and tell-tale sounds of a break-in attempt are transmitted to the Sonitrol monitoring station.


How Does SonaVision Work?


CCTV and video is a perfect complement to Sonitrol's audio sensors. Together security cameras and video monitoring take your organization's security to a new level.


SonaVision video surveillance service allows you to see what's going on when you're not there to watch. SonaVision allows Sonitrol's operators to see what's happening anytime we receive an action signal. Once the action signal is received, professional operators will determine whether or not a crime is in progress and dispatch the police immediately. You can view some real live CCTV video footage here.


When these security technologies are integrated, verified audio and video are the best solutions for protecting your business from criminals, and they are the most effective option for determining if a criminal has gained entry into your business.  Most importantly, your local Police trust verified security alarms and they respond quickly and capture the would-be thieves.
