24 Hour Monitoring
There are many reasons that 24 hour monitoring is important for a comprehensive security and life-safety system. Local alarms (sirens), although important, only provide a limited level of protection and deterrence. For break-ins, there can often be a substantial time between the break-in and when you arrive back at your home or office. This not only gives the perpetrator a great deal of time to carry out the crime, but also leaves the premises unsecured after they leave. For break-ins that occur during the day, many people are out to work, so there is a greater possibility that there will not be a neighbor nearby to respond and notify authorities. Additionally, since most city ordinances require that alarm sirens must automatically turn off after 5-15 minutes, there is a very short window where the siren can serve its purpose.
Many applications can also benefit from silent monitored alarms such as panic-buttons. Fire alarm system monitoring is also highly desired, for situations where occupants may not be readily woken up by a siren (deep sleep, smoke inhalation, carbon monoxide). A monitored system helps ensure that the proper services are dispatched. Another benefit is that many insurance companies will extend discounts to your premium for having a monitored system.
