24/7 Professional Monitoring

The strength of our central monitoring station stands behind your system

Monitoring gives a security system its true value. In case of an in-home emergency, one touch of the burglary, fire or medical emergency button on your keypad will get you a response from a live Guardian operator. You won't have to worry about dialing 911. Our monitoring centers play a critical role even in moments when nobody is home. If an intrusion is detected or if an abnormal amount of smoke is detected, which may signal a fire, our monitoring centers go into action on your behalf. Depending on the type of signal, Guardian's trained experts know exactly what to do, and have the capability to notify you and first responders.

Central Station: How Monitored Home Security Systems Work

The highly trained team in our monitoring center is on alert for your system's burglary, fire and medical alarms 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. On average, Guardian initiates a response to your system's emergency signal in 30 seconds or less. Powerful systems, state-of-the-art technology and live experts synchronize to deliver a response that signifies our commitment to providing you true peace of mind. The illustration below shows you a general idea of the most basic steps in a monitoring center response.

Alarm is activated due to the triggering of any armed, monitored system component. For instance, by an intruder.

An emergency signal is transmitted to Guardian's Monitoring Center, where we work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

A monitoring center specialist will initiate a response in an average of 30 seconds and follow appropriate protocol.

If help is needed, the monitoring center specialist will notify emergency personnel to direct them to the premises.
