As we begin a new year, it is important to be aware of two trends for 2014 in the security industry: social media’s effect on residential security and the impact of false alarms. In both cases, verified security from Secure Pacific can play an important role in protecting your home and business. We live in a digital era. With the click of a button, we can share a play-by-play of our daily lives with friends and family around the world. There is, however, a downside to this increased connectivity. By viewing your social media account, a burglar can gain knowledge of your daily routine, vacation activity, and personal information. Luckily, rising technologies such as remote home security and video verified security can give you the peace of mind to stay connected with those who matter most to you, without compromising the security of your home. In addition to monitoring your home, verified residential security systems actively work to apprehend intruders. As the number of businesses and homes using security services steadily grows, so does the threat of false alarms. More than 90% of alarm calls are false, many of which occur due to the inadequacies of traditional home security and commercial security systems. With false alarm fines ranging from $50 to $150 in Portland, it is important for homeowners and business owners to avoid these unnecessary charges. That’s where verified security comes in, giving our Verification Center operators real-time confirmation of the threat so law enforcement can be dispatched with knowledge about the situation. Verified security ensures faster law enforcement response times and protects users from rising false alarm fines. Whether you need residential or commercial security, nothing compares to the reliability and consistency of verified security systems.
