This month, Alert 360 highlights the following security monitoring success stories based on actual customer experiences:
• A business security system alarm was received from an Alert 360 business customer. The monitoring center dispatched local police within three seconds. Thanks to the swift action of the Alert 360 team, police were able to capture the intruder while he was still inside the location.
• A motion signal was received from an Alert 360 Dallas alarm systems customer. Within one second, the monitoring center contacted the homeowner who confirmed police dispatch was needed. The customer later confirmed there was an intruder, but he was scared off by the sound of the alarm. During his escape, the intruder dropped his cell phone, which the police were able to use to track down and apprehend the burglar.
• Alert 360 received an alarm from a commercial alarm system location. When the monitoring center contacted the business manager, they were informed local police were needed. The customer later confirmed that a crowd of people had gathered outside and were throwing things at the business, trapping employees inside. The local police department was able to separate the crowd, allowing the employees to safely leave the premises.
• Alert 360 responded to a home security system alarm from a customer’s outside storage shed. The monitoring center immediately dispatched police. During a follow-up call, the customer confirmed someone had broken into the shed and taken tools. However, the thief was unable to gain entry to the home, and no further theft was reported.
• After receiving a medical pendant alarm, the Alert 360 monitoring center was able to reach the homeowner who stated their spouse had fallen, and they needed assistance. Thanks to the quick response of the Alert 360 monitoring center, emergency personnel were able to provide prompt medical attention.
Alert 360 Smart Signal allows an alarm user to quickly decide whether the alarm was an accident or if help is needed, allowing for faster notifications to Alert 360’s alarm monitoring station and greater protection from false alarm dispatches. When an alarm event occurs, a Cancel Alarm and a Verify Alarm option will appear in the Alert 360 app along with a Time Remaining counter. A user will have two minutes to either cancel or verify the alarm.
Using the Smart Signal option to cancel a false alarm, the user simply presses and holds the Cancel Alarm button in the Alert 360 app for three seconds until the status bar completes. The Alert 360 monitoring center will cancel the alarm and will not dispatch emergency services. To verify an actual emergency when help is needed, a user presses and holds the Verify Alarm button in the Alert 360 app for three seconds until the status bar completes. The Alert 360 monitoring center will alert authorities immediately to respond to the emergency. If a customer chooses nothing, Alert 360 alarm monitoring dispatchers will still make contact by phone regarding the alarm signal.
In the event of an emergency, Alert 360’s Smart Signal Panic option allows customers to open the Alert 360 app and tap the Panic dropdown menu. Depending on the alarm system installed, customers can choose from different panic button selections that include fire, police, silent, or medical alarms. All options will send an immediate alarm signal to the Alert 360 monitoring center from the alarm panel at the customer’s property. The panic button will work from almost anywhere a customer is located. Once the panic button has been activated in the app, the Alert 360 monitoring center will immediately dispatch authorities to the location of the property protected by Alert 360.
