Alarm Monitoring Is Now A Necessity

We live in a world where alarm monitoring is no longer an option. According to Alarm System Report, over 2,000,000 home burglaries are reported in the United States each year. Every 13 seconds a burglary occurs which rounds out to 4 burglaries a minute with a grand total of almost 6,000 per day. These burglaries could be drastically reduced if a home security system was put into place.

Only 17% of homes in the United States have a security system of any sort installed into their homes. Put yourself into the shoes of the burglar. If one home has a security system and the other doesn’t, which home would you enter? Homes with no security systems are 3x more likely to be robbed than those with a security system in place.

It’s also more common for burglaries to happen during daylight hours, rather than at night. Many people aren’t in their homes for a majority of daylight hours making it the perfect trap for burglaries. Don’t let your home be a statistic. Odds are, a burglary could happen in your home so it’s crucial to be prepared with the highest quality system on the market.

What’s Included in A Home Alarm Monitoring System

Contrary to popular belief, there is more to a home alarm system than just detecting possible intruders. Absolutely all home alarm monitoring systems in Toledo at APC can detect an emergency, such as a burglary and contact emergency personnel to take hold of the situation. However, our alarm monitoring systems have many more important features.

Fire Safety

All of APC’s home alarm systems are equipped to detect fires quickly and contact emergency responders to handle the situation first hand. Smoke alarms alone are not enough- home security systems are designed to offer an even earlier warning of fire in your home. Monitored home alarm systems are not only able to detect smoke but heat as well. It won’t detect the blistering heat of a hot summer’s day, but if the temperature inside your home gets to a dangerous level, it could mean that a fire is brewing. At that moment, authorities are contacted to assess the situation directly.

A heat detector can be purchased separately from an alarm system, but a heat detector will not contact the authorities in case of an emergency.

At APC America, we don’t take fires lightly. In just 30 seconds, a small flame can turn into a detrimental fire filling your home with thick, black smoke. In just 5 minutes, an entire home can be completely engulfed in flames. Within a blink of an eye, a fire can destroy everything in your home.

Smoke Detection

Our alarm monitoring systems are equipped with a smoke detection safety feature. Smoke detection does just what it says- it sounds if any smoke is in your home. Accidents happen. You try cooking fried chicken for the first time and burn it to a crisp or your electrical system has a malfunction. In these types of situations, if the issue is not addressed immediately a more serious incident can occur, such as a fire. Don’t worry, you’ll hear the smoke detector when it goes off. We make sure that the volume is high enough that you can ideally hear it even if you are fast asleep!

Additional Options Available with Your APC System

All systems include basic burglary, fire, ambush, medical, emergency panic, and power loss features, but what if you could do more to protect your home? You certainly can. All APC home alarm monitoring systems have optional features including extended burglary, low temperature sensor, high-water detection, video surveillance, and more!

A home alarm monitoring system can give you the peace of mind knowing that your home is always being monitored, whether you’re in the home or across the country.
