Why We Monitor

SMS Security Monitoring

We offer Security Monitoring to residents and businesses throughout Perth & Western Australia. We recommend Monitored Security, not just because it’s our specialty but because there are compelling reasons for having your security system Monitored by a trained individual rather than operating merely as a noisemaker.

Criminal Deterrence
We already know that homes and businesses with alarms are far less likely to be burgled than those that don’t. But did you know that as many as three quarters of attempted burglaries that are abandoned are abandoned because of a ringing alarm? When a burglar sees signs and stickers from a security company they always have to wonder whether the system is active and Monitored. Criminals know that a Monitored Alarm is their worst enemy as it will bring down the heat faster than any other security approach and are most likely to move on to another target.

Faster Response Times
A burglar needs less than 10 minutes to successfully conduct a burglary. That means every minute that goes by after entry is critical. Monitored Security makes it possible for Monitoring Personnel to know quickly when a home or business has been breached and allows them to contact local authorities right away. In the event a burglar decides to take their chances, the likelihood of being caught goes up when Monitoring is in play. When Monitored Security includes video surveillance cameras, they create evidence that can be used for investigation and prosecution purposes.

It Could Save A Life
A Monitored Security system can offer additional benefits with different kinds of Monitoring above and beyond burglary. In fact it is common to include Fire and Medical Emergency Monitoring for customers where it is suitable.

We are especially proud of Medical onitoring for those with chronic illnesses or families with senior residents. Medical Monitoring means that you are never alone, even when you or your loved one are the only one in the home. With just the touch of a button, help can be immediately dispatched in the event of an emergency.

Extra Protection
In the advent your property experiences a unique (not the whole suburb) AC power failure such as is indicative of a home fire or burglar attempting to cut the power before gaining entry our Monitoring Station will pay immediate attention and be at the ready to contact emergency and police services. Non-Monitored Alarms do without this additional protection.

More Than a Noisemaker
At the end of the day, a Monitored Security system is more than just a noisemaker. It is a system that connects your home and business to a Monitoring Centre where trained and experienced personnel are looking out for your safety. That protection extends beyond just those hours you are away; it also includes Monitoring while you are present. The peace of mind it offers is unbeatable.

    I never thought about how quickly a burglar could get in and out of a home. That’s good to know that a monitored alarm system can get you help quicker. I’ll have to talk with my wife about getting an alarms system installed in our home. Thanks for the great article!

    I’ve been concerned about my parents lately. Their health has been deteriorating, and I don’t want them to have any issues. I didn’t know that you could get a medical emergency monitoring system! That seems like a good way to keep them safe, since it could immediately get help if they have a problem. Thanks for sharing!

    I think it’s awesome that security systems can improve the response time in the event of a burglary. I remember someone broke into our house when I was a child and we were all so scared that we forgot to call the police ourselves until after it was over. Having a system that calls for you when you’re in trouble is very smart.

    It makes sense that you would want to have a security monitoring company. It would be bad if you didn’t, and had nothing to scare away burglars! It’s important to keep your home safe, after all.
