HOME SECURITY SYSTEM ALARM MONITORING

No Contracts, No Long-Term Commitments

Not All Central Station Monitoring Is The Same 

When considering to have your home security system monitored by a central station its important to understand the level and quality of service you will be receiving. A cheaper price doesn’t necessarily mean a better deal, but instead may mean reduced level of service.
 

Our Central Monitoring station is on the watch for you around the clock. Systems are monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by a team of professionals at our UL listed, FM approved monitoring center.  With redundancy built into every part of the monitoring station we are always there for you.  When there is an alarm at your home or business, a signal is sent either over your phone line (toll-free), broadband Internet, or cellular connection to the Central Station. Trained operators will respond dispatching local authorities and notifing people on your call list depending on the type of alarm you have:

  • Burglary 
  • Fire 
  • Medical 
  • Environmental (flood and temperature)

Your Monitoring Could Be Zero Cost!

Qualify for an annual alarm discount on your home owners insurance premium!  Most North American insurance companies will grant a 10-20% discount for professionally monitored security systems.  Vanguard Security will provide a Central Station Monitored Alarm Certificate to all monitoring subscribers.  With a typical annual insurance premium at say $1000, that could mean a savings of $200 – or $17 per month.

Featured Article: Home Security System Alarm Monitoring Basics

Your home is your castle as they say. It’s where you go to escape and find peace in a world full of madness.  For this reason, it’s imperative that you create an environment that is safe for the sake of you and your family. A burglary is something that can greatly diminish the amount of comfort you feel in your home. It is one of the most traumatizing violations you can experience, both emotionally and physically […]

UL Central Station Monitoring w/Interactive Services

We have many connectivity options – from dial-up to broadband Internet to cellular for communication with our central station.  POTS and IP Internet have the risk of intruder line tampering (cut) and the latter has the additional issue of home LAN devices going offline during a power failure unless protected with a backup battery.  Our cellular option has neither of these risks and you can still use either along with cellular for more robust/reliable connectivity. We offer traditional monitoring (just alarm and trouble signalling), interactive services allowing control of both your home security and automation devices, as well as full video streaming to any remote smartphone or computer.

  • UL Central Station
    We have trained operators ready to respond and verify your alarm signals 24x7x365. This includes burglary alarms, life safety such as fire and CO, status signals (AC loss), and environmental alerts such as low temperature or flood detection. Upto 75 zones of protection which is more than you'll ever need!
  • Connection: Dial-up
    Your connection to our UL central station will use a standard POTS (plain old telephone service) dial-up line. While this has been used with alarm systems for years it also has the highest risk of tampering by an intruder.

  • Connection: Cellular
    Use a cellular carrier (Verizon for CDMA and AT&T for GSM) for a fast, lower risk connection to our central station. Line tampering by an intruder is virtually eliminated! Since cellular communicators are either internal or wired directly to security systems they are powered and battery backed up by the alarm panel. This is important since LAN devices are generally NOT protected against power failure. See our list of compatible cellular communicators. Includes backup connectivity via landline for panels with that capability.

  • Connection: IP Internet
    Use a broadband IP Internet connection such as Cable, Fiber, DSL for a faster connection to our central station. Keep in mind that line tampering by an intruder is still possible. Also unless you use battery backup on your internal LAN equipment (modem, router, switches) a power outage could comprimize signalling to the central station. See our list of compatible IP communicators.

COPS is UL listed, FM approved, and has more TMA Five Diamond accredited central stations compared to anybody in the market.

With 6 load-sharing facilities purposefully situated provide an unequaled capability to supply quick, reliable, expert monitoring, even under difficult conditions. Running numerous facilities in geo-diverse areas, not just provides our clients backup in case of equipment failures, it reduces the likelihood that regional problems (such as snowstorms, storms, flooding, and so on) might influence more than one site at once. In the event regional problems prevent COPS dispatchers from working at a location, they merely over-staff at other sites to cover the load.

 

COPS does not employ simply any person to be a dispatcher. The individual managing your alarm system should have the best specialist disposition, personality, ability collection, as well as total character that is best for the task.

While regional problems generally enhance the action times at various other monitoring firms, COPS has actually confirmed time and also time once again that their numerous areas as well as staffing approach functions by constantly supplying preferable feedback times when rivals could not. In enhancement to 2 repetitive VMware data processors that check our customer accounts in their New Jersey head office, COPS additionally has 2 even more repetitive VMware data processors in one of the globe’s biggest as well as most dependable information facilities (the SuperNAP) in Las Vegas.

What qualities make the most effective dispatchers? To accomplish quality service COPS understands how to determine, hire, train, as well as preserve individuals that show compassion, an understanding of privacy, a tranquil disposition, a favorable perspective, a solid inner voice, and strong desire to assist others in their time of need.
