What Happens When Your Home Security Alarms Go Off In Monroe?

An alarm system is intended to protect your home. But what happens if your home security alarms go off in Monroe? What actions should you take to help make sure you and your family are secure?

The most important first step is to avoid panicking. Remember that your 24/7 monitoring specialists are always standing by to assist. Then follow these steps to be fully equipped to handle any emergency.

Our Committed Professionals Are Focused On Your Safety

A 24-7 monitoring specialist is alerted in an instant when your Monroe home security alarms go off. After an agent is alerted, they will call you as quickly as possible to figure out what caused the security system. Your system can activate in various situations, including:

  • Criminal activity

  • Smoke

  • Flooding

  • False alarm

In circumstances where your system was accidentally triggered—like not remembering that the motion sensors are switched on when you unlatch a window or door— an agent will contact you and ask if help is needed. Supply them with your predetermined password, and they'll deactivate the alarm.

In the event there is a legitimate crisis, the monitoring agent will dispatch emergency personnel, including firefighters, EMS, and law enforcement, to your property. They can also act as your proxy if you aren't at home. Your monitoring team can also let first responders know which security device was triggered, helping them prepare for what could be a hazardous environment. The monitoring expert will stay on the line with you to keep you composed and instruct you on what the next steps should be.

Steps to Take if Your Alarm Goes Off In Monroe

Getting roused from bed in the wee hours of the morning to a security warning going off is incredibly scary—particularly if you don’t know why it’s happening. The smartest thing you can do is stay as calm as possible and follow these steps:

  • First, find a safe location. Round up your family and pets in an expeditious manner and get into a protected area in the house or exit as quickly as possible. It's typical to have an urge to want to face the situation in your home, but this can be incredibly dangerous. Instead, focus on trying to keep you and your family members protected and let the professionals handle the issue.

  • As a second step, take advantage of your mobile security application to keep connected with your monitoring team. They'll notify emergency professionals who will be en route to your property within minutes.

  • Third, keep in close contact with your monitoring agent and first responders. You can get patched through, so representatives of each team are talking together. Or, if you’re not able to get a direct call to authorities, you’re still able to obtain updates via text. Even if your dealing with a false alarm, it's smart to thoroughly communicate to all parties so you will be ready should a real emergency take place.
