When it comes to protecting your home from unexpected emergencies, here at General Security we recommend that you sign up for a 24-hour home monitoring system. This will give you that added confidence of having an extra set of trusted eyes and ears looking over your property. While having an alarm based security system is a step in the right direction, this is still somewhat limited and pales in comparison to adding home monitoring your security plan.
Having an extra set of eyes monitoring your home means that in the event of an emergency, they can take action on your behalf and alert the relevant emergency response units be it a fire truck, ambulance or even police assistance.
How the home security system works:
The Control Panel. The control panel installed in the house acts as the central brain, using its specialized programming to identify the property to General Security. It provides crucial information pertaining to the customer’s property location as well as the nature of the emergency to monitoring staff.It is able to convey all this information to the Central monitoring station through connectivity avenues such as wireless connections, VOIP line and even landline telephone.
Also as a bonus feature, it can be used for 2-way communication between the monitoring center and the house in the event of an emergency trigger.
Sensors. Sensors relay data to the Control panel regarding the nature of the threat. They vary in design thereby enabling the people monitoring to determine what the emergency is. For example in the event of a break in, then sensors at entry points such as windows and doors will be tripped. In the event of a fire, sensors with the ability of detect Carbon monoxide levels and hence fire will go off. Medical monitoring and remote video monitoring can be integrated into the system offering owners live video feeds on their mobile devices.The sensors convey this information to the control panel which then conveys it to the monitoring center. Here an operator monitoring a computer screen will be able to analyze the alarm and hence take the necessary action according to their training.
