Professional monitoring offerings are changing dramatically with the proliferation of new connected devices, apps, and DIY home security systems in the market. 

Traditional monitoring was developed over the last 100 years primarily around legacy alarm panels. Today, new monitoring systems allow innovative companies to share a wide range of data sources with monitoring specialists and public safety for faster, data-enriched emergency response. 

Meanwhile, public safety agencies and emergency communications centers (ECCs) are also gaining the ability to relay and process more data than ever before – from building layouts to vehicle models and license plates to health profiles of 911 callers. 

As professional monitoring services and 911 infrastructure are brought into the digital age, connected device, app, and security companies have more reasons than ever to add 24/7 professional monitoring to their emergency offering. 

 

What is 24/7 Monitoring? 

24/7 monitoring provides your customers with complete security and peace of mind, wherever they are, at any time of the day or night. If an alarm is triggered, certified monitoring specialists  will be immediately notified, verify if an emergency is actually in progress, and take appropriate action. Monitoring services manage the end to end process of ensuring that your customer is safe and dispatching the appropriate first responders on your behalf if needed. With 24/7 monitoring, customers gain the confidence that someone is always there to respond if there’s a security, health or other major emergency. 

A modern professional  monitoring service helps your business not just to verify emergencies but to link critical data from your devices to  emergency services and arm first responders with accurate, actionable information that can help save lives.
