Monitored alarm systems
If your home alarm is activated, police may not respond straight away and in many cases at all so you are relaying on friends and neighbors to attend on your behalf if you are not able to, however this also puts them at risk if there is the possibility of an intruder still on your property.
With a monitored alarm system the police will attend immediately if a personal attack button is pushed or a secret code is entered in to your panel if you are being forced to turn it off. There is no option to do this with a bell only system.
A monitored alarm system can also contact us (the monitoring center) if there is any gas, carbon monoxide (Faulty boilers), water or fire.
