Sonitrol Security and New Security System Laws
Will the New Verified Response Laws Make Your Security System Obsolete?
There is a new wave in law enforcement sweeping across the country called Verified Response (VR) and 27 cities have already enacted a policy. What is the impact?
Questions to Consider:
• Will the police come?
• how long will it take?
• Will your company send you into a potentially dangerous situation?
• Is your company ready?
What is Verified Response?
Alarm owners and/or private security companies bear the responsibility of verifying that the alarm is not false and that an intrusion is actually taking place before the police will be dispatched.
Verification is accomplished either through a private security guard or through electronic surveillance (audio and/or video)
Sonitrol's alarm systems are already Verified through electronic surveillance
• Our proprietary, impact activated audio intrusion technology lets us verify the alarm
• Our dispatches are marked "verified" and we dispatch the police with critical information
• Average police response time to Sonitrol's alarms is 7 minutes vs. an average of 45 minutes for non-verified alarms
• We have assisted law enforcement in apprehending over 155,000 criminals, since 1977
• We have saved our customers millions of dollars in false alarm fees
• With conventional systems, the cost of security guard verification services are passed on to you; with Sonitrol the verification is built in so the extra costs are eliminated
