Why Central Monitoring is the Key to the Best Home Security Solution

2,310,000,00. That’s how many results Google shows for “home security solutions.” Try “home security systems,” and you get 2,430,000,000 results.

The problem isn’t finding information about the best home security solution. It’s finding the information that is right for you and your family. Advent Security can help.

Some of the typical questions we hear are:

  • How much does the security system cost? Answer: It depends on your needs and home layout. We don’t offer cookie-cutter systems that can leave you vulnerable. That said, we work within all budgets.
  • Is the system all wireless? Again, it depends on your needs. Wired systems are installed as permanent features in your home and many people like them because they never have to remember to change the batteries. A downside is they are usually permanent and may be more expensive to install. A trained security professional can help you decide what’s right for your family.
  • Can I access the system from my phone? Yes, many of the systems we install have apps that allow the homeowner to to access the system remotely.

One of the advantages of a professionally installed home security solution is the ability to pick and choose the features you need.

For example, do you need sensors on all of your doors and windows? Some companies offer cookie cutter home security systems that don’t offer enough sensors to cover all the points of entry into your home. We recommend a more thorough approach.

Do you need smoke, fire, carbon monoxide, and water detection? When you have these all tied in together with a central monitoring system, you can sleep soundly knowing your family’s safety is well thought out.

We always recommend central monitoring.

What is Central Monitoring?

Alarm monitoring, or central monitoring, are critical to your family’s safety. With some home security systems, if a would-be intruder climbs through a window, they’ll set off an alarm. Depending on your alarm system, this may even be a silent alarm.

If you have central monitoring, the alarm sends a signal from your home security system to the central monitoring station of your home security provider.

The Central Station / Alarm Monitoring Center staff are trained operators who monitor all systems.  They notify your contacts, and call the appropriate authorities in the event an alarm signal is received.

Central Monitoring Can Alert You to Smoke and Fire and Carbon Monoxide

With the right sensors, smoke, fire, and even the silent killer carbon monoxide can be detected early.  And with Central Monitoring, you’ll be alerted and the proper authorities will be dispatched.

Central Monitoring Can Even Alert You to Floods Before They Do Thousands of Dollars in Damage

Imagine that your washing machine started leaking all over your laundry room floor while you were out. Without a sensor that can detect this water leak, you’d come home to a wet mess all over your laundry room floor and, depending on how long it sat, potentially thousands of dollars of damage.

However, with a water detection sensor set up as part of your home security solution, a signal will be sent to Central Monitoring which will alert you to the problem. That way, you have a better chance of getting to it sooner, and turning off the water to mitigate the damage.

When it comes right down to it, the best home security solution is the one that fits you and your family’s needs and includes central monitoring. If you would like to discuss your home security needs with an expert, please contact us for your no-obligation consultation.
