To combat the high rate of burglaries, CAGE Security Alarms have announced the next-generation security monitoring system, which will improve the accuracy of security services and cut response times for homes and businesses across Australia.
CAGE Security Alarms’ new Internet Protocol-based (IP) security monitoring service gives reliable protection for both homes and workplaces. It runs on a dual-path system, connecting to the broadband network with a back-up GPRS system. These both link to CAGE Security Alarms’ back-to-base 24-hour National Monitoring Centre.
As soon as the alarm system detects tampering, intrusion or a power failure, it sends a signal directly to the National Monitoring Centre, where operators will call the client company, phone the alarmed premises, alert the police or ambulance service or send out a guard patrol.
Charlie Behrens, who recently installed the CAGE Security Alarms’ new system, says that the dual system provides an extra level of security.
According to Rob Pennefather, Managing Director of CAGE Security Alarms, the dual-path security monitoring systems are more advanced than the single-path, copper wire-based Securitel system.
As the Securitel was a single-path system, operators could not always tell whether it was a genuine security alert or a fault with the phone line when the signal from a client’s premises was broken. The new dual-path system from CAGE Security Alarms solves this problem, and takes uncertainty out of alarm monitoring. The dual-path system is also cost-effective.
