What is a Central Video Monitoring Station?November 15th, 2018 | by admin admin | in Security Advice | 11
If you have a home security system installed in your home, do you know where the emergency signal is being sent to? When a burglar tries to break in, a signal is sent over your phone line to a central monitoring station, which is constantly watching over all the homes that are being protected by the company.
But did you know that most security companies send those signals to a third-party company that receives the signals and then responds? Your home may not be watched by someone in Vancouver, let alone someone in North America. This also places another step in the chain of actions that occur if something goes wrong at your home. Do you want anything delaying a response?
This is why it’s so important to have a Central Video Monitoring Station to maintain your home security at the level that you expect. At Radius Security, we own and maintain our own station in order to better protect the homes we have been entrusted with. It’s an additional level of service that we believe is critical to our customers’ needs.
In this central video monitoring station, operators are watching over all our security systems in case of a burglary, fire, or personal emergency. After receiving a signal, the operator contacts you to confirm the emergency and then we notify emergency personnel. Our operators understand Vancouver and Lower Mainland and know what’s important for our clients’ well-being. And we meet the strictest of requirements in order to be certified by Underwriter’s Laboratories of Canada.
If you’d like more information on how we can protect your family, contact one of our friendly staff at Radius Security. You’ll be sleeping better knowing that someone close to you is watching over your home and ensuring that, if anything goes wrong, you’ll be protected and taken care of.
