Verified Audio Detection

ยป If It's Not Verified, It's Simply Guessing

Sonitrol's verified audio intrusion detection system is one of the most powerful tools you can add to your security arsenal - and it's unique in the marketplace.

For retail businesses we can add hold-up alert capabilities that automatically activate a live audio feed in the event of a robbery during business hours.

Unlike conventional alarms, Sonitrol's verified alarms are sound-based - not motion-based - so when an alarm is triggered, our monitoring professionals can actually listen-in to determine whether a break-in is in progress, or whether a false alarm has occurred. If it is a break-in, we immediately dispatch police and relay real-time information to the responding officers. If it is a false alarm, we simply reset the system without bothering you or the police.

Our technology sets us apart. The ability to verify an alarm event in real time gives Sonitrol unrivaled credibility with local law enforcement. That is a key advantage as a growing number of municipalities pass Verified Response regulations requiring verification that an intrusion is actually taking place before police will dispatch personnel to the site.

Sonitrol has the best apprehension rate in the industry - and the fewest dispatches for false alarms. In fact, in January 2006, Lehman Brothers named Sonitrol "the leading alarm verification company." And our integrated components allow us to customize an intrusion detection system that can expand easily as your needs grow.
