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

An alarm system should safeguard your family. But what happens in the event your home security alarms go off in Bend? What should you do to ensure you and your loved ones are taken care of?

The first thing to do is not to panic. Know that your 24-hour monitoring experts are there for you. Then take the steps described below to be prepared for any emergency.

Our 24-Hour Specialists Are There For You

A security monitoring representative is immediately alerted when your Bend home security alarms go off. When an agent is notified, they will call you without delay to figure out what caused the security system. Your protection devices can activate due to a range of emergencies, including:

  • Criminal activity

  • Smoke

  • Flood

  • False alarm

In situations when a device was tripped accidentally—like forgetting that the motion sensors are armed when you open a window— a monitoring specialist will contact you and ask if help is needed. Supply them with your predetermined password, and they can turn off the alarm.

In a true emergency, your representative will dispatch first responders, including law enforcement, firefighters, and medical professionals, to your residence. They can also serve as a contact point when nobody is home. The monitoring agent can also apprise emergency services on which entry sensor was tripped, giving them a forewarning for what could be a hazardous environment. Then the agent will stay on the line with you to assist in keeping you calm and instruct you on what you should do.

Here’s What You Should Do if Your Alarm Goes Off In Bend

Waking up in the wee hours of the morning to your alarm blaring can be understandably frightening—especially if you don’t know why it’s going off. The smartest thing you should do is remain calm and proceed with the following:

  • In the first place, move to a safe place. Collect your loved ones in an expeditious manner and get into a secure room in the house or exit as quickly as possible. It's a common tendency to want to face the situation by yourself, but this can be incredibly dangerous. As an alternative, focus on keeping you and your family members protected and letting the authorities resolve the problem.

  • Secondly, use the home security app to remain connected with your monitoring staff. They'll dispatch emergency professionals who will be on their way to your residence in a flash.

  • Lastly, keep in constant communication with your monitoring agent and emergency professionals. You can get conferenced in, so representatives of each team are talking together. Conversely, if you can't get a direct call to your emergency providers, get alerts through text messages. Even if it’s only a false alarm, it's smart to keep adequately communicating with everyone involved so you will be ready should an actual problem take place.
