False alarms are a common issue when it comes to burglary and fire alarm systems. This creates a financial burden on the police and fire services that may respond to such false alarms. It makes a monitoring service a vital part of eliminating unnecessary calls to emergency services. Another important factor in limiting false alarms is the use of image sensors.
How Image Sensors Benefits Businesses and Homeowners
Image sensors can provide a monitoring company with real-time images that accompany the automated alert. As a result, response times are reduced, and false alarms become less frequent.
Consider the following benefits:
- Quickly identify false alarms – When a burglary or fire alarm is tripped, images can help a CSR make a quick decision about the legitimacy of the alarm.
- Real-time response – When the alarm is triggered and an image confirms the emergency, responders can be notified immediately and be better informed of the nature of the emergency.
Plus, wireless operation and the small size of these image sensors allow for additional benefits. Sensors can be placed just about anywhere and at any angle to provide the best possible images for monitoring purposes, and wireless sensors provide accurate information regardless of the condition of the home or office’s utilities.
The Modern Way to Monitor Emergencies
According to one estimate, Americans spend about $1.8 billion on false alarms annually. Image sensors can help reduce that financial burden and provide better response times for genuine emergencies. These two factors alone should make selling the idea of image sensors to clients a fairly easy prospect. NMC is proud to help reduce false alarms while providing fast support in emergency situations.
