7 Differences Between Conventional Alarms and Sonitrol Pacific

You probably know that Sonitrol Pacific offers audio verification and comprehensive customer service, but that’s not all that separates us from conventional alarm providers. Here are the top seven:

Conventional Unverified Motion                                   Verified Sonitrol Pacific Security
Detection System                                                           Active Audio System

  • Most conventional systems cover only a selected portion of your building and from limited points of entry.
  • Sonitrol Pacific has complete coverage from any point of entry.
  • Conventional motion systems activate after someone has already broken in and they are inside.
  • Most conventional monitoring personnel call the facility first, trying to confirm the break in, and then call either the police or the company’s responder at home.
  • Sonitrol Pacific operators confirm the break in, call the police and stay in contact to help in the apprehension. This results in a quicker police response.
  • Most conventional systems use an audible alarm which tells intruders when they need to leave so they don’t get caught.
  • Sonitrol Pacific uses a silent alarm so intruders don’t know they’ve been detected, giving Sonitrol Pacific the highest documented apprehension rate.
  • Conventional systems don’t know the difference between a real alarm and a false one. Often, they call you at home and ask you what they should do.
  • If a Sonitrol Pacific system is activated by a normal noise, Sonitrol Pacific can reset the system from our Verification Center.
  • Conventional systems have a false alarm rate of over 95% and no false alarm guarantee.
  • Conventional alarms do not qualify for “verified” police dispatches.

What’s so great about motion detectors when you could have 100% coverage and early detection?
