Why Have Your Business Or Home Alarm Monitored?

Monitoring is all about giving you “peace of mind” knowing if ever your alarm reports a problem, an emergency or there has been a break-in, immediately your predetermined instructions are actioned ie the sending of a licensed security guard.  Kahu Security can offer residential alarm monitoring and/or business alarm monitoring.

Not Having Monitoring

For your Business – It means spending time organising an after hours call roster of staff and of course that gets hard to do in the summer holiday months an long weekends.

For your home – It means arranging friends, family and neighbours to keep an eye on your place while you are away, and of course you have to return the favour for them when they are away, so that can become a pain and you can’t ask them too often.

Monitoring The Alarm Yourself

This means should the alarm ever activate, it texts, emails or calls your mobiles directly, this is called “self-monitoring” and is good for those who live or work close by. This monitoring though does have limitations, relying on your phone not being in use, switched off or outside the coverage area. The attraction is once set up there are no ongoing monthly monitoring fees to pay.

If you have moved away from the standard analogue copper phone line, and your alarm is under 6 years old, then you will need to consider adding a GSM or IP module to your alarm to achieve this communication. Alarms any older would need to be upgraded first.

Once the alarm is set up to call you, via say the cellular network, (a GSM dialler added) there are phone apps you can download so you can check the status of your alarm and remotely arm or disarm it, from anywhere.

If you have a modern alarm you can now programme in on the alarm keypad alternative numbers the alarm is to ring when away on holiday or a business trip.
