Back-to-base monitoring is an investment. Like all investments, you need to weigh the pros and cons before committing to pay. This blog post details what you need to know to determine whether back-to-base monitoring is worth it for your property.
What is back-to-base monitoring?
Back-to-base monitoring is a professional security service. It is where your commercial, retail or home alarm system is set up to alert a monitoring centre if your alarm is triggered. These monitoring centres are manned 24/7 by security professionals.
Benefits of back-to-base monitoring
Our clients choose professional monitoring for a variety of reasons. When they do, they get access to these benefits of back-to-base monitoring:
1 Around-the-clock protection.
Back-to-base monitoring means there’s someone keeping a watchful eye over your alarm at all times. Your home and business are powerfully protected wherever you are!
2 Guilt-free disconnection.
Self-monitoring requires you to diligently keep watch over your system. Any time you’re disconnected from the internet or you’re not accessible by phone, you lose touch with your alarm system. Back-to-base monitoring frees you up to disconnect.
3 A professional response.
None of us know exactly how we will respond to a break in or in an emergency. Back-to-base monitoring leaves your emergency response to a professional team. By choosing a high-quality provider, you can be certain that your instructions are being acted upon. Freeing you up to concentrate on what matters – your safety, your family, and your valuables.
How we respond to your alarm
With back-to-base monitoring, BPoint acts in line with your response plan. You’ll choose how we respond to a break in or other triggering event. You select whether we contact you, the police, or dispatch a security patrol car (for an additional fee) at the first instance. We offer 4 standard responses, but we’re able to develop a custom response for your property.
How much does back-to-base monitoring cost?
The cost of back-to-base monitoring depends on a number of factors, including your provider, the alarm reliability, and how often your alarm communicates (or checks in) with your security centre. The range of costs provides flexibility for you to balance the costs of your security monitoring with your risk profile.
