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

A residential security package is intended to defend your property. But what happens when your home security alarms go off in Fresno? What are the right steps to take to be certain you and your family are safe?

The first thing to do is to remain calm. You should understand that your 24-hour monitoring experts are always standing by to assist. Then take the steps described below to be fully equipped to handle any urgent situation.

Our Committed Professionals Are There For You

A security monitoring representative is alerted in an instant when your Fresno home security alarms go off. Once an agent is notified, they will contact you as quickly as possible to figure out what caused your home’s defense. Your alarm can activate in various situations, including:

  • Burglary

  • Smoke

  • Flood

  • Alarm tripped by accident

In circumstances when your system was accidentally triggered—like forgetting that your entry-point sensors are switched on when you unlatch a window or door— a monitoring specialist will reach out to ask if help is needed. Provide your proper code, and they will turn off the alarm.

In the event there is a legitimate crisis, your representative will summon emergency personnel, including police, fire, and EMS, to your property. They also have the ability to serve as a contact point when you aren't at home. Your monitoring team also can inform authorities which component was triggered, increasing their preparedness for what might be a dangerous situation. Your monitoring professional will maintain a connection with you to keep you calm and inform you what the next steps should be.

Recommended Steps if Your Alarm Goes Off In Fresno

Waking up in the wee hours of the morning to your alarm blaring can be terrifying—especially if you don’t know why it’s going off. The smartest thing to do is remain calm and follow these steps:

  • In the first place, find a safe location. Collect all members of your family including pets in an expeditious manner and relocate to a shielded space at your property or leave the premises entirely. It's typical to have an urge to feel like you need to deal with the problem in your home, but this can be incredibly dangerous. As an alternative, concentrate on trying to keep yourself and your family safe and letting the authorities resolve the crisis.

  • Second, use the smartphone’s convenient security app to keep in communication with your monitoring team. They'll dispatch authorities who will be in transit to your home in a matter of moments.

  • Lastly, keep a persistent line of communication with your monitoring specialists and first responders. You are able to be patched through, so representatives of each team are speaking on the same line. Or, if you can't be in direct contact with authorities, you can still receive updates via text. Even if it’s only a false alarm, it's smart to maintain communications to all parties so you will be ready should a legitimate crisis happen.
