There was a time when just a simple burglar alarm was all you had available to protect your business or home. But a security system that only triggers a siren — even one for every location — is no longer enough. Times have changed and criminals have become even more brazen and sophisticated. Fortunately, so have your security options.
New technologies including computer automation, the Internet, cellular, cloud services and more, have redefined the meaning of security in recent years. New systems offering more powerful features that are affordable, convenient, reliable and easy-to-use, are increasingly coupled with around-the-clock security system monitoring services that give your home or business maximum protection and greatly enhance your peace-of- mind.
Whether you are at home or work, you can be confident that security professionals stand ready to respond quickly if police, fire or medical assistance is needed.
A professionally monitored security system provides many important advantages and benefits.
First, monitoring maximizes the value of your security system. With accurate emergency information at their fingertips, our professional dispatchers can quickly determine your needs and notify the appropriate police, fire or medical emergency response teams.
Second, our monitoring service can provide you with critical, real-time information. It can record the times your system is activated and deactivated. It can even notify you if your system is not armed or disarmed at specific times of the day or night. Even better, you can be immediately notified via customized text messages regarding the nature of an activation, including streaming video of the situation.
Third, through technologies such as video verification and analytics, monitoring can nearly eliminate expensive and wasteful false alarms that can trigger costly fines and pull emergency professionals away from real crises.
Fourth, monitoring can significantly deter criminal activity. Studies show that a home with a monitored security system is 66.2% less likely to be burglarized. And a business with a monitored security system is 4.5 times less likely to be burglarized.
Fifth, monitoring can actually save you money by not only preventing burglaries, but also by providing you with insurance discounts, tax advantages, protection against losses from flooding and water damage, more efficient energy management, and much more. The fact is, WCFI’s professional monitoring services is not a really a cost at all, but an investment that pays you back month after month.
