3 Benefits of a Central Monitoring StationDecember 4, 2019 9:25 am
Parents of young children often wish they had eyes in the back of their heads to keep track of their little ones all the time. It would be great to have ‘round the clock surveillance on the things that we love and hold dear to us but that is not always possible. A security system with a central monitoring station can keep a watchful eye on your home whether you are there or not.
According to the latest FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics, property crime rates including: burglary, larceny, and motor vehicle theft have seen a slight decrease in the last few years. Unfortunately, the latest numbers still show that even with that decrease there are still, on average, almost a million and a half residential burglaries every year.
Given this statistic, it is a good idea to take precautions to protect your home, family, and possessions. A central monitoring station is the most critical component of your home security system.
The central monitoring station is the part of your security system which provides notification to the appropriate authorities in the event of alarm activation. That alarm may be due to a burglary, fire, smoke, carbon monoxide alarm, or other emergency occurring at your residence.
