TotalGuard™ Apprehension Alert!

Check out the quality of video and audio in this clip from our Sonitrol franchise partners in Lexington. The customer was extremely happy that his sales consultant suggested the TotalGuard system. It was even installed the same day of the intrusion! The Sonitrol Monitoring Operators received this alarm based on the banging from the audio that is built-in to the TotalGuard device. The device then turns on its live video feature. The operators were able to watch and listen as the burglar was in the building without him knowing. Based on what they saw and heard, the operators dispatched law enforcement and gave them real-time information. Being an actual verified intrusion, you can tell the police showed up within minutes, along with their trusted K-9 officer! Thanks to quick response time by Sonitrol Operators, 911 Dispatch and Police, we have another satisfied Sonitrol TotalGuard™ customer! He even left a nice, relieve voicemail at the end of the video. Job well done by all!

Consider the Facts

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.


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.


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