What good is any alarm system if no one hears it?
Monitoring is what makes any system useful and effective. If a sensor activates the system when no one is there to hear the alarms, the system is not able to notify you or the authorities without the help of monitoring services. Whether you spend a lot of time away from your business, travel often, or just want to ensure your business is secure when no one is there, the best time to monitor your system is before a tragedy occurs. We’d much rather hear that you’re glad you did, than that you wish you had.
Phone lines are no longer required for monitoring.
Originally, all monitored security systems utilized the landline telephone as the exclusive method of communication between the system and the call center. With recent advances in technology, there are now several options available that utilize cellular communication signals to provide reliable reporting without worrying about cut wires or paying the phone bill for an otherwise unused line. This capability also enables us to provide both security and video monitoring services in many remote areas that were previously unreachable by traditional telephone and internet providers.

How Monitoring Works
For security, fire, and environmental systems, we customize the response to be followed for each type of signal. When the panel receives a signal, it sends out a message to the central monitoring station. The operator at the monitoring center will follow the protocol designated for that particular code. This may involve a phone call directly to you, dispatching emergency services, or notifying someone else that your system has been tripped- you decide. Our monitored systems can detect and alert both you and the authorities at the first signs of danger when seconds are critical in preventing loss of life and devastating property damage.
Video surveillance systems are able to be custom programmed to meet your needs. Recorders are available to save continuously or only when events occur during designated times. Cloud storage for event-based recording is an option as well. Video monitoring is also available. It allows the monitoring center to use your cameras to verify an event prior to dispatching the authorities. For those who just want to know when their system has detected motion, video notification services can provide that ability. Receive a email or push notifications on the mobile app. All of our networked IP cameras can be viewed live at any time with a high speed internet connection.
Monitoring services for security, fire, and carbon monoxide start at just $20.00 per month. Call the Whitetail Electronics office for more information about our affordable monitoring and notification pricing: 814-790-5575
