Why? Because Sonitrol alarms are reliable. The false alarm rate of conventional systems can reach 98 percent. Sonitrol's ability to immediately verify an alarm keeps our false alarm rate low. Sonitrol is able to detect a break-in while an intruder is still attempting to gain entry - no matter where the entry point is. Sonitrol signals are monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by highly trained professionals. As soon as an alarm signal is received, an operator begins to listen to live audio from your building. No other system can give police such accurate, up-to-the minute information as they respond to the scene. The result? Sonitrol has a high apprehension rate, low false alarm rate, and increased safety for police officers.
