Verified alarm, monitored alarm … alarm system, security system … audio verification, video verification … listen back, glass break, motion sensor, motion viewer, remote access, home link, door contacts, chime, verification center, 24 hour monitoring, etc., etc.

What does all this mean to the business owner who just wants to protect his or her livelihood, property, future and employees?

Verified vs. Monitored

Verify means to know, validate, and confirm through verified technology. For example, security images monitored by verification experts, as opposed to an unintelligent motion sensor or a contact on a door or window. If you do not know what caused the activation, who or what is monitoring cannot call in a verified intrusion. Without a verified-confirmed-validated attack, the authorities do not treat the threat as a real intrusion but rather a non-verified alarm. If your current system does not or is not capable of verification, you simply have an alarm system that is no better than a loud bell ringing.

With a false alarm rate more than 97% across the country due to so many "monitored" alarm systems that don't verify, it is no wonder many municipalities are putting in place ordinances that require verified intrusion before responding to a call.

It's just this simple: your alarm company calls you at 2:43 AM to let you know your alarm has gone off. If this was a Secure Pacific verified system the first call would have been to the police … not to you asking what you want them to do … "call the police or are you going to go check it out yourself."

We catch the bad guys, we know why the system was activated, and we know if it is a plant waving due to the air current from the heat coming on or if it is someone trying to get into your IT closet to take your complete network with all your dates. Secure Pacific, local verified security.
