Custom Alarm Monitoring
What happens when an alarm or emergency event occurs at your home or business? Did you know that not all fire and burglar alarm systems will alert your local police, fire or emergency medical services departments?
Today, when anything triggers your alarm, a monitoring center such as S.E.M. Security Systems, receives that signal. We then provide call verification to ensure the event is genuine and notify the appropriate authorities once we have verified it.
What Is an Alarm Monitoring System?
A professional alarm monitoring system acts fast to limit damages and protect property during attempted break-ins, fires, or other events. Detects numerous unwelcome situations with automated home security services and products monitored by trained professional dispatchers. Monitored features can include burglar alarms, motion sensors, glass break sensors, video surveillance, and more.
When a break-in attempt occurs, the live operators continuously monitoring your system will respond to the signal immediately. We meet alarm activations with quick response times, so the proper authorities can arrive on the scene as quickly as possible. Alarm monitoring systems may even link with numerous other safety-conscious services — such as fire alarms, access control, temperature control, and environmental control — to further protect your home against burglary and fire.
While you can purchase and use an alarm system without monitoring, you will notice the unmonitored system may not perform several essential functions that alarm companies provide. We recommend a professionally monitored alarm system that guarantees year-round assistance because hazards like burglaries and fires are unpredictable. Unmonitored home security systems may require do-it-yourself installation with limited or unreliable protection.
Invest in an alarm system that notifies the proper local authorities at all times, with sufficient monitoring 24/7/365.

Commercial Alarm Monitoring With S.E.M. Security Systems
Your business is valuable to you, and the best way to protect it is with the best possible commercial alarm monitoring services. At S.E.M. Security Systems, we’ve worked hard to build our reputation as a reliable commercial alarm monitoring company.

Many of our commercial security customers appreciate our access control systems. A lock on the front door is somewhat insufficient to protect today’s businesses, especially if you restrict some areas of your facility. Our access control options let you control who can access specific areas such as your server, product storage areas, or client data rooms.
Our system also lets you know exactly who has accessed which areas and at what time. While you may be very careful in how you vet your employees, the threat of industrial espionage is genuine, and you never know who may feel tempted to access areas or information they shouldn’t. With S.E.M. Security Systems access control, you should have no problem keeping new or untested personnel out of sensitive areas.
