Strangely enough the concept of home security dates back to ancient times in Egypt. How times have changed . Today a current basic home security system is a process of creating layers around a home or business that will make it increasingly difficult for a thief to break in and steal things and/or harm you or your family. If you are currently considering a home or office monitoring system with the thought that soon you might get on board the “security train”, you’ll find that alarm system companies are like poppies growing in a vacant field – they are everywhere. However the correct home security monitoring service to fit your needs will take a bit of due diligence on your part.
An alarm monitoring center also known as a “central-station” are terms used when referring to a company providing alarm system services for individuals and businesses who have security systems. Alarm Relay in their continuing effort to be the leader in alarm services, uses only specific software, computers and phone lines to monitor a customers security system on a 24/7 basis. In the event an alarm is received quick action can be taken to alert the proper authorities. This expediency also requires system quality, experience, knowledge and patience.
In your “due diligence” search for help protecting your home and family you will find a plethora of options and companies from which to choose that involves a home security monitoring service. Alarm Relay does not solicit any multi-year contracts or credit reports from their customers. Their alarm plans are affordable and have been monitoring alarms for decades. Actually they have a state-of-the-art facility in California that serves customers in many areas across the country.
Several other items of consideration you should be aware of is that not all alarm system companies offering services to the public may have passed the series of biannual inspections and given the designation: UL-Listed – (Underwriters Laboratories). Alarm Relay is not only UL listed for both burglar and fire system installations, but are inspected on an ongoing basis by US Inspectors to ensure that all safety measures are covered.
Another caveat that often goes unnoticed is working with older and “inherited” systems. An example would be if you purchased a new or older home that contains a pre-installed system when you moved in, there is no sense in spending excess money for a newer system and having the older the older one dismantled. Whether the alarm system was professionally installed or not, we can work with you to “unlock” the system so in can be re-programmed to call the Alarm Relay central-station.
