One of the most sig­nif­i­cant advan­tages of an ALARM‑i busi­ness secu­ri­ty sys­tem is that alarm events are auto­mat­i­cal­ly cap­tured on video. This video allows you and the ALARM‑i mon­i­tor­ing sta­tion to ver­i­fy that a dis­tur­bance is occur­ring instant­ly, thus reduc­ing the risk of false alarms.

More impor­tant­ly, video alarm ver­i­fi­ca­tion enables Pri­or­i­ty Police Dis­patch for up to 85% faster response on aver­age and more than 50% arrest rates, com­pared to 0.08% for tra­di­tion­al alarms.

But how does the sys­tem work exact­ly? Let’s break down the com­po­nents of an ALARM‑i sys­tem to illus­trate how alarms are trig­gered.

A Complete Business Security Package

For this post, we’ll look at our Best ALARM‑i pack­age, an expand­able sys­tem designed to give you com­plete, ongo­ing pro­tec­tion for your busi­ness – indoors and out­doors. But we also offer oth­er pack­ages with vary­ing com­po­nents and capa­bil­i­ties to fit your needs and bud­get.

Here’s what’s inside:

ALARM‑i Pro Control Panel

Every ALARM‑i sys­tem has a con­trol pan­el for easy and intu­itive con­trol of your busi­ness secu­ri­ty sys­tem and com­mu­ni­ca­tion with our mon­i­tor­ing sta­tion. Advanced Pro­tec­tion Log­ic is fea­tured in all con­trol pan­els, pro­vid­ing an addi­tion­al lay­er of pro­tec­tion in sce­nar­ios where an intrud­er attempts to destroy the alarm sys­tem upon enter­ing. Our Best pack­age includes an advanced touch­screen con­trol pan­el for even greater ease of use and more fea­tures.

4 Indoor/Outdoor Cameras

This pack­age includes four weath­er-resis­tant eye­ball cam­eras, which can be installed inside or out­side your busi­ness (or both). The cam­eras have night vision, so you can see what’s hap­pen­ing any­time. Unlike our oth­er pack­ages, this sys­tem will record and trans­mit ongo­ing video of your premis­es, acces­si­ble 24 hours a day. The mon­i­tor­ing sta­tion will also receive live video when an alarm event occurs.

3 Door Contacts

Three-door con­tacts allow you to mon­i­tor mul­ti­ple doors at your premis­es. If the sys­tem is armed and detects a door open­ing, the alarm will be trig­gered. Both you and the mon­i­tor­ing sta­tion will receive alerts and have the abil­i­ty to view live videos of your busi­ness. Addi­tion­al­ly, you have the option to alert author­i­ties if nec­es­sary, imme­di­ate­ly.

1 Motion Detector

Install the motion detec­tor in any space you need to mon­i­tor phys­i­cal move­ment. You can con­fig­ure your busi­ness secu­ri­ty sys­tem in a retail shop to detect motion when the store is closed. If a sig­nal is detect­ed, the alarm will be trig­gered, and you and the mon­i­tor­ing sta­tion will be noti­fied.

Network Video Recorder (NVR)

Our Best pack­age includes a Net­work Video Recorder, which is more advanced than old­er-style DVR sys­tems. It records and stores video footage direct­ly from the net­work. This allows for faster, high­er-qual­i­ty and more depend­able live and record­ed video stream­ing from your devices.


Remem­ber that our Best ALARM‑i pack­age is expand­able, allow­ing you to add more cam­eras and sen­sors to fit your require­ments.
