What Happens When Your Home Security Alarms Go Off In Mobile?

A residential security package is intended to protect your home. But what occurs if your home security alarms go off in Mobile? What are the right steps to take to ensure you and your family are secure?

Your first priority is not to panic. Know that your around-the-clock monitoring experts have you covered. Then follow these steps to be fully equipped to handle any urgent situation.

Our Dedicated Representatives Help You Stay Safe

A security monitoring representative is alerted in an instant as soon as your Mobile home security alarms go off. Once a monitoring professional is alerted, they will contact you without delay to figure out what triggered your home’s defense. Your alarm may trip for several different reasons, including:

  • Burglary

  • Flames or smoke from a fire

  • Flood

  • False alarm

In situations where a device was accidentally triggered—like not recalling that your entry-point sensors are turned on when you open a window— a monitoring specialist will contact you and find out if help is needed. Provide your passcode, and they'll turn off the alarm.

In the event there is a legitimate crisis, your representative will send out your local emergency services, including law enforcement, firefighters, and medical professionals, to your residence. They can also function as your proxy if you are not on site. Your dedicated monitoring staff can also inform authorities which component was tripped, helping them prepare for a potentially dangerous situation. Then the agent will stay on the line with you to assist in keeping you calm and let you know what the next steps should be.

Steps to Take if Your Alarm Goes Off In Mobile

Being awoken in the middle of the night to your alarm blaring can be incredibly scary—even moreso if you have no idea why it’s occurring. The most beneficial thing you should do is keep yourself in control and follow these steps:

  • First, get somewhere safe. Gather all members of your family including pets as quickly as possible and proceed to a protected area in the house or depart the home if needed. It's a natural response to confront the emergency on your own, but this can be incredibly dangerous. Alternatively, put a priority on attempting to keep you and your family members secure and letting the authorities deal with the crisis.

  • Second, use the home security app to keep in touch with your monitoring team. They'll notify authorities who will be on their way to your residence in a matter of moments.

  • Lastly, keep in close contact with your monitoring team and emergency responders. You have the ability to be patched through, so representatives of each team are speaking on the same line. Conversely, if you can't speak directly to emergency services, you’re still able to obtain updates through text messages. Even if it’s only a false alarm, it's a good idea to keep adequately communicating with everyone involved so you will be ready should a legitimate crisis take place.
