APPREHENSION AT SYRACUSE, NY WAREHOUSE

One recent Saturday night, a Sonitrol operator received an overhead door alarm followed by an audio alarm indicating sounds of movement inside a warehouse in a town outside of Syracuse, NY.  One minute later, a long range passive infrared sensor (PIR) was also activated.  The operator acted quickly by contacting both the Colonie Police Department and the site manager explaining that he had a verified alarm.  Police quickly arrived on the scene, confirmed a break-in was in progress, and apprehended the suspect.   

Traditional security systems are limited by the size and layout of a warehouse or distribution center. Even with multiple motion sensors to protect each door, aisle or row of goods, vulnerabilities still exist in the ceilings and walls—increasingly popular entry points for would-be thieves.  Using our unique verified audio detection technology, strategically placed audio sensors provide floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall coverage—ideal for distribution centers of any size.  Sonitrol has solutions specifically tailored to meet the needs of warehouses and distribution centers. Using our patented audio detection process, dispatches for false alarms are reduced and criminal apprehensions are increased.

Consider the Facts
RISING FALSE ALARM RATES

Over 98% of alarm activations are false alarms. And with each alarm call costing taxpayers in police time and resources, more and more communities are looking for ways to respond to alarms more effectively. Many communities now require verified response—confirmation by an alarm company or an eye witness that an actual intrusion is in progress—before dispatching police.

LONGER RESPONSE TIMES

The average police response time for non-verified alarm activation now exceeds 45 minutes in many communities. The longer the response time, the lower the chances of police stopping an intrusion in progress and apprehending the criminals.

NON-TRADITIONAL THREATS

Increasingly sophisticated crimes, including internal theft and fraud, and crimes accompanied by other disasters such as fire or explosions, overtax traditional alarm systems.
