Why You Need A Commercial Security System With A Low False Alarm RateNobody expects to have their business fall victim to robbery, vandalism, arson or any number of crimes but it happens.

While you can’t stop the risk completely you can reduce it, and if it does happen, there is a way to feel confident that the necessary response teams will be there quickly.

Sonitrol’s unique verified audio and video CCTV security systems enable our operators to hear and see what is happening at your place of business before the criminals gain entry! This allows us to verify the source of the alarm in real-time, and if it is the result of criminal activity, the local authorities are notified swiftly.

In fact, the average Police response time to a Sonitrol Verified Alarm is just 3.5 minutes!

This is partly because of our low rate of false alarms. Our alarm systems have the lowest false alarm rate in the industry, 3% vs. other security systems.

Combine accurate real-time alarms with the partnerships and reputation we have built with local Police Departments, and it is easy to see why you can depend on officers to respond quickly to Sonitrol verified business alarms.

Without verification of the alarm it can take police upwards of 45 minutes to respond. A private security guard can verify the alarm, but guards are very costly and this approach can still result in delays averaging 17 minutes.

Not only do our systems offer the fastest and most reliable dispatches, saving you and the law enforcement professionals time and money, it also deters criminals from attempting to enter your place of business.

This is because professional criminals know the complexity and risk that our level of security brings them.

They know how difficult our verified security systems are to beat, they know it will catch them, and they know that Police across North America give a prioritized response to all verified Sonitrol calls for crimes in progress.

Other companies use non-verified security alarms and rely on easily compromised technology, such as motion sensors and door contacts. These older, less effective systems have a remarkable 98-percent false alarm rate.

What we have is a unique audio and video system that is monitored and verified by Sonitrol operators, ensuring that Police officers are dispatched as soon as they are needed.
