Important Benefits of 24 Hour Alarm Monitoring
What is Alarm Monitoring?
First of all, it is important to know exactly what an alarm monitoring system is. It differs from an alarm that is secured to your door or window and triggered by movement. A monitored alarm system is watched 24 hours a day by a dedicated security company who will make contact with you within seconds of the alarm being triggered.
