Monitored Versus Unmonitored Security System
April 09, 2018
On A Resort Somewhere in India
“What would you like to have?” the server asks Rahul. “A mojito, extra lime” he responds, chilling on the beach. He is enjoying Sunset without any worries because there is an unmonitored security system installed at his house. He left his phone in the room.
Meanwhile, Back in Rahul's Room
A storm of alerts is flooding in Rahul’s phone. His new unmonitored Home Security System is sending him alerts.
We hope Rahul enjoys his mojito. His return to the room won’t be as pleasant. Don’t be like Rahul and get stuck with alerts. Get monitored home security and receive actual responses during a break-in.
Why do people choose an unmonitored system?
Unmonitored home and business security systems are a declining trend, become popular because of the misconception that they are safe as monitored systems. They have large upfront costs, but after the initial purchase, you will only pay for additional equipment. Subscriptions are cheap or free because they don’t provide professional monitoring.
DIY (do-it-yourself) means that the systems are installed by users, and equipment can be placed by the users where they want to. Both professionally monitored and unmonitored systems can be DIY. Setup can be as simple as downloading an app and mounting your equipment.
Big Trouble Comes in Little Systems
Unmonitored security systems may seem convenient, but they won’t stop crime. They aren’t monitored 24/7 by teams of professionals. You’ll get alerts that a crime is happening, but your system won’t notify the authorities.
Monitored security systems are the only option that will alert first responders during emergencies.
It isn’t security if it isn’t monitored.
Anything They Can Do, We Can Do Better.
Unmonitored systems have sold customers on the idea that they are the most advanced and optimized security technology.
Unmonitored brands have sleek designs, websites, and captivating marketing campaigns — but good technology is not exclusive to unmonitored systems.
Most monitored systems are unobtrusive and wireless.
Monitored home security is the only all-inclusive option on the market. The promise of an actual response from authorities during emergencies provides true peace of mind. You can’t place a price on a protected home and family.
Monitored home security is crucial.
