What Happens When Your Home Security Alarms Go Off In Logan?

A security system is intended to safeguard your family. But what happens when your home security alarms go off in Logan? What should you do to help make sure you and your family are safe?

The most important first step is to avoid panicking. Remember that your 24-hour monitoring professionals have you covered. Then take the steps described below to be fully equipped to handle any urgent situation.

Our Committed Professionals Help You Stay Safe

A 24-7 monitoring specialist is immediately alerted as soon as your Logan home security alarms go off. After a monitoring professional is informed, they will reach out to you n a hurry to figure out what caused your home’s defense. Your system may activate due to a range of emergencies, including:

  • Burglary

  • Smoke

  • Water infiltration

  • Accidentally setting off alarm

In situations when a device was set off by accident—like forgetting that your sensors are switched on when you unlock a door— a monitoring specialist will call to ask if assistance is required. Provide your passcode, and they'll turn off the alarm.

In the event there is a legitimate crisis, your representative will summon emergency personnel, including firefighters, EMS, and law enforcement, to your property. They can also function as your proxy in the event nobody is home. Your dedicated monitoring staff also can apprise emergency services on which security device was set off, helping them prepare for what could be a dangerous situation. Then the agent will maintain a connection with you to keep you calm and inform you what you should do.

Steps to Take if Your Alarm Goes Off In Logan

Being awoken in the wee hours of the morning to your alarm echoing through your house can be terrifying—especially if you aren’t clear as to why it’s happening. The most important thing to do is stay as calm as possible and proceed with the following:

  • In the first place, find a safe location. Collect your loved ones in an expeditious manner and get into a shielded space within your residence or depart the home if needed. It's a common tendency to feel like you need to deal with the problem in your home, but this can be incredibly dangerous. Instead, put a priority on attempting to keep you and your loved ones protected and let the trained personnel handle the problem.

  • As a second step, use the smartphone’s convenient security app to keep in communication with your monitoring staff. They'll notify responders who will be en route to your property in a flash.

  • Third, keep in close contact with your monitoring team and first responders. You have the ability to be patched through, so all parties are speaking on the same line. Or, if you’re not able to get a direct call to emergency services, you can still receive notifications through text messages. Even if it’s only a false alarm, it's smart to thoroughly communicate with all teams so you will be prepared should a legitimate crisis occur.
