SECURITY ALARM SYSTEMS
SECURITY ALARM SYSTEMS
Once upon a time, alarm systems were considered a godsend for protecting your property. But over the years, they’ve turned into a nuisance for police, security guards and system owners alike.
Did you know that over 98% of alarms are false? Some people still think that a false alarm is better than no alarm. But that’s not the case. When an alarm goes off and police are dispatched, a typical charge for a police response is $100 – $200 per alarm.
This has led to most police services in Canada to make video verification for alarm systems mandatory, meaning that regular alarm systems simply aren’t cutting it for protection anymore.
Spotter puts the power back into having an alarm system by only installing video verified systems, meaning that you’ll get the security you need without worrying about the hassle caused by false alarms!
Spotter’s alarm systems use unique motion detectors coupled with built-in cameras so that when motion is detected, a video clip is sent directly to our monitoring station so we can verify whether the event is real or false.
FAST POLICE RESPONSE
When Spotter’s monitoring station verifies that there is a genuine security threat, it is called into the police station as a “crime in progress”. Having this distinction means that your alarm becomes priority one for police instead of just a regular “alarm” call, which usually gets bumped down to priority six for police.
With Spotter’s video verified alarms, call to police are responded to in 8 – 10 minutes, which is over 80% faster than with a regular alarm system.
GET THE INFORMATION YOU NEED
Nobody wants to deal with getting a call at 2:00am about an alarm at your premises, and figuring out what action to take can be a serious cause for frustration (especially if the alarm turns out to be false). Do you get in the car and drive down yourself? Do you send a security guard who will likely arrive after the perpetrators have long gone? Or do you simply ignore the potential crime happening?
When Spotter receives the video clip from a triggered alarm’s camera, the only phone call you’ll receive will be from a Spotter agent saying “we see people attempting to break in and the police have been dispatched. No more worrying about responding to false alarms or figuring out what action to take. Spotter has you covered!
