Best Response Time
Most consumers believe that the most important factors to take into consideration when choosing between security companies are the cost and features. Although there's truth to that, it's also vital not to overlook a company's response time.
"Response time" refers to the amount of time it takes for the monitoring center to connect you to an operator in case of an emergency. It's worth noting that a company's response time has no direct effect to the amount of time it would take the police or responders to respond to your emergency. However, the quicker your alarm company responds to alerts, the sooner they can send help your way.
After careful analysis of crime reports in Scottsdale, AZ, we've found that the response time of alarm companies has a direct effect on the success rate of stopping crimes in progress. We've concluded that companies that are faster to respond to alerts are more successful in protecting their customers than those with slower response times.
