Last month, one of our expert operators received a system activation from the facility of a Beaverton, Ore. client. She listened to real-time audio from the store’s Sonitrol sensors, heard sounds of glass breaking and other banging noises, and called the Beaverton Police Department. The operator also called the business owner to let him know what was going on.

The business owner arrived on scene shortly after police. When he pulled into the parking lot, officers asked him what he was doing there. He left them know Sonitrol Pacific, his security system provider, called to let him know a break-in had been detected at his business. The officers let our client know the break-in actually occurred at the business next door.

The burglar alarm installed in the neighboring business never detected the break-in despite multiple windows being broken and never went off as it was a motion sensor based system. The noise made by the window breaks activated Sonitrol Pacific’s audio based system installed to protect the facility next door.

No one else can do what we do because no one else uses audio detection technology nor backs it by our unparalleled Commitment to Service.
