Your monitoring experts can aid in streamlining an emergency
An alarm will likely be confusing when they trigger -- especially if they go off in the middle of the night. But if you placed a monitored alarm system, you only have to think about one action: getting your loved ones to out of harm’s way.
That's because your monitoring expert also reacts to your activated sensors. In a few seconds, they will contact you to ensure you and your family are safe and help gauge the scene. Then, they will contact emergency departments and direct them to your home. Your monitoring team will even help walk you through an situation and where to go.
Monitoring guards more than your home security system
Your Blacksburg monitored alarm system protects more than an break-in. Your home security system might act to fire, carbon monoxide, or water damage with the right devices. By placing a monitored fire alarm or CO detector, you can have emergency teams to react no matter if you're home or away. Your monitoring professionals can even answer to health-related situations -- like shortness of breath or a sudden fall -- with a monitored medical pendant.

They'll answer to any alarm that you cannot and will also keep you in-the-know every part of the process. It’s convenient when you're at work and can hurry home after getting an alert, but it's critical when you're out of town and can't quickly make it back to handle the situation.
