Sonitrol Launches New, “All-In-One” TotalGuard™ Solution, Disrupting the Small Business Security Market

INDIANAPOLIS, June, 2018 – Sonitrol, the leader in verified electronic security, launches TotalGuard™, an all-in-one solution that provides video verification, impact activated audio, glass break detection, wireless support, Sonitrol Mobile App (video surveillance, alarm events, arm/disarm system), and so much more.

TotalGuard™ is a perfect solution for the small business market looking for a low cost monitored security option; allowing Sonitrol to compete and have advantage over the popular DIY security systems. This solution can also pair with Sonitrol’s Cloud Access Control for businesses looking for complete security solutions. With commercial property crime on the rise, TotalGuard™ can safeguard assets with its complete volumetric and video protection, while giving peace of mind knowing the solution is monitored by Sonitrol’s 24/7 Central Station.

When an alarm is triggered via audio, glass break or motion, the event details, along with real time streaming video and audio, are instantly sent the Sonitrol Central Station who can verify to police on the events taking place and determine the appropriate action. The Sonitrol solution results in faster police response times, averaging around 8 minutes; compared to 17 minutes with a security guard or 45 minutes for a non-verified alarm.

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.
