We’ve all heard an alarm siren sounding in the middle of the night and wondered if there was a burglary in progress or if it was just false alarm. Alarm systems are a great deterrent to anyone thinking of breaking into your home but alarm systems can sometimes be triggered accidently. Maybe the pet cat got too close to a sensor or the owner forgot their passcode or alarm remote fob.
False alarms can be annoying and a drain on resources like police and security monitoring companies when they are called out to investigate the cause. The cost to the community with authorities attending false alarms can be substantial and a waste of man power and tax payer dollars.
With the combination of better internet speeds and video surveillance systems being able to transmit CCTV vision more easily, video alarm verification has become the new trend. This allows you to visually determine a false alarm from an actual break and enter incident, which not only saves alarm monitoring companies and police resources but also saves property owners the cost of call out fees for attending a false-alarms.
When a video verification alarm system is activated it can send low resolution images or short low-resolution video clips to confirm whether it’s a false alarm or a legitimate incident. Alarm response times are often much faster when video confirmation of a burglary is in progress, as the chances of catching an offender and returning stolen property is much higher.
