Considering security and fire alarm monitoring services for your business?

Commercial Alarm Monitoring Services

If you are considering security and fire alarm monitoring services for your business, this checklist can help. As you contact potential commercial alarm monitoring companies, these are some critical points to discuss.

Top 5 Alarm Monitoring Questions to Ask:

  • Redundant Services: Does the Central Station have a “twin” Central Station with a redundant data base and automatic switchover in case of critical events such as natural disaster, terrorist attack, or Cyber-attack?
  • Alarm Types Monitored: What types of alarms are monitored? Burglar, Fire, Safety, Holdup, Medical Response, Temperature or Industrial Process alarms?
  • Contact Procedure: Is their customer contact procedure flexible enough to accommodate your needs, i.e. contact a specific key holder upon furnace fail and a different key holder upon general alarm?
  • Reporting: Is there automatic reporting offered? If so, in what format are reports provided?
  • Certifications: Is the monitoring Central Station UL/ FM & 5-Star certified, and are operators professionally trained? Is your local Alarm Dealer UL listed for Security and Fire Alarm? Can they write Certificates to lower your insurance costs?

Another important factor to consider is whether the local alarm company you choose is easy to contact with dedicated on-call servicemen.
