What Happens When The Security Alarm Goes Off

Why should you have a security alarm?

You may never have thought or considered having a security alarm installed in your home however it is a service many security firms including Protection Plus Security do offer and there are plenty of reasons you should do so as soon as possible.

The installation itself can sometimes be costly however it is worth it.

The first and most obvious reason you should have it installed is to protect both your home and your family from any intruders.

If for any reason an intruder was to try and force entry into your house the sound of the security alarm would act as a great deterrent for the intruder, they also look for security systems before trying their luck so if you don’t have one you’re leaving yourself open.

Another way it can protect you is by getting a fire alarm installed also to pre warn you of any potential fires giving you time to either act against the fire or evacuate.

What to do when it goes off

If you have had your security alarm installed by it might be a surprise and also a shock when it goes off for the first time however the most important thing is not to panic.

The first thing you’ll want to do is ensure that it isn’t a false alarm as this can happen from time to time but you don’t want to be turning off the alarm until you’re verified this.

If you have had surveillance cameras installed along with your security alarm you can have a look through the live footage to see if there has been any intrusion.

If the situation appears genuine you’ll want to contact both your monitoring station (you’re security provider will have a round the clock team on hand to help) as well as calling the police.

You’ll want to do this as soon as possible as every second counts.

Once you’ve done this you’ll want to get you and your family to a safe place in the house and if you can’t securely lock the door you’ll want to barricade it with as many heavy items as you can.
