Your alarm company relies on signals from door contacts, glass breaks, and motion detectors. These types of signals aren’t received until the bad guy is already inside your space! Sonitrol’s audio technology enables us to hear the criminals while they’re still trying to get in. Police are swiftly dispatched, and often arrive before entry is gained! In addition, your alarm company’s signals can’t be verified, so there’s no way to distinguish a false alarm from a real break-in.
More and more police jurisdictions are changing their policy to respond to verified alarms only.
Since Sonitrol verifies the alarm signal through live audio, we are not required to contact you first. This means the police can be at your site within minutes. In fact, the average response time for Sonitrol dispatches in North America is 3.5 minutes.
