What Happens When Your Home Security Alarms Go Off In South Fulton?

A security system should protect your home. But what actually transpires if your home security alarms go off in South Fulton? What actions should you take to ensure you and your family are safe?

The most important first step is not to panic. Remember that your 24-hour monitoring specialists have you covered. Then follow these steps to be ready for any emergency.

Our Dedicated Representatives Are Focused On Your Safety

A 24-hour monitoring agent is instantly notified when your South Fulton home security alarms go off. When a representative is informed, they will contact you as quickly as possible to determine what caused the alarm. Your protection devices will activate due to a range of emergencies, including:

  • Burglary

  • Flames or smoke from a fire

  • Flooding

  • False alarm

In situations where the alarm was tripped accidentally—like not remembering that the motion sensors are armed when you open a window— a monitoring specialist will contact you and ask if assistance is required. Supply them with your passcode, and they can cancel the alarm.

If you have an urgent situation, your representative will send out first responders, including law enforcement, firefighters, and medical professionals, to your residence. They can also serve as the point of contact when nobody is home. Your dedicated monitoring staff can also apprise emergency services on which entry sensor was set off, helping them prepare for a potentially dangerous situation. The monitoring expert will stay on the line with you to keep you in control and instruct you on what you should do.

Recommended Steps if Your Alarm Goes Off In South Fulton

Waking up in the wee hours of the morning to an alarm going off can be incredibly scary—particularly if you don’t know why it’s going off. The most beneficial thing to do is remain calm and follow these steps:

  • Before anything else, get somewhere safe. Round up your family and pets in an expeditious manner and proceed to a secure room in the house or leave the premises entirely. It's a natural response to feel like you need to deal with the problem on your own, but this may put you and your family at greater risk. As an alternative, focus on attempting to keep yourself and your family safe and let the trained personnel deal with the problem.

  • Second, use the mobile security application to stay connected with your monitoring agent. They'll dispatch emergency professionals who will be on their way to your residence in a flash.

  • Third, keep in constant communication with your monitoring team and emergency responders. You can get connected, so representatives of each team are sharing information. On the other hand, if you’re not able to get a direct call to your emergency providers, you can still receive updates by text message. Even if your dealing with a false alarm, it's a good idea to keep adequately communicating with everyone involved so you will be prepared should a legitimate crisis take place.
