So many homes and office buildings are equipped with security cameras/ monitors, access controls, and alarms. But what are all these connected to? These devices are connected to an alarm/ security system with someone working in the background making sure you are protected. If you have an unwanted intruder, you want emergency services and yourself to be alerted as soon as possible. If there is a flood or gas leak, same thing applies. Alarm.com is the most reliable security system to protect your home, business, and your people 24 hours a day/ 365 days a year. 5 reasons for this include:
1. Designed to be More Trustworthy and Do More than other Systems
Many alarm systems use the same phone/ cable line as the building. However, Alarm.com uses a dedicated connection that is the most secure option. This provides continuous and reliable service for the important transmissions that your system is sending out. If an intruder disconnects the phone/ cable (or it is tampered with accidentally), this will normally compromise the security system. However, with the dedicated cellular link, the alarm system will send a signal even if internet is down or there is a power outage.
Alarm.com system is not only more dependable but it does MORE than your average administrator. A regular security system just sends a signal when an event is triggered. However, Alarm.com systems can send a warning sound when cameras or an alarm sense an unwanted visitor. If there is a fire, then alarm.com can shut off the gas; they can also shut down the water for a flood.
