Protect America offers year-round 24/7 monitoring. When your home’s alarm is activated, a signal is sent to one of Protect America’s three monitoring stations. It’s important to note that Protect America gives you the comfort of redundant back-up monitoring. That means two monitoring stations are standing by to handle your emergency should something go wrong with the signal sent to the first station. In addition to burglary protection, Protect America offers smoke monitoring, medical panic pendant or watch monitoring, Carbon Monoxide monitoring, freeze and flood sensors, and a number of home automation choices.
Protect America understands that every customer has unique needs, and that’s why they offer three different types of monitoring options: cellular, high-speed broadband and landline.
When you choose cellular monitoring, you’ll enjoy the benefit of Protect America’s SMART Connect apps. You’ll be able to do things like control your home’s security, take charge of home automation, and watch live video right from your smartphone or tablet. Best yet, you won’t be charged for access to these popular features. Your Protect America alarm panel is built with a Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) cellular device that contacts one of Protect America’s monitoring station should an alarm be activated.
In an emergency every second counts. You’ll feel good knowing that this monitoring option delivers incredibly fast response time. In fact, once a secured area has been breached, it only takes two seconds for your high-speed broadband modem our router to send a signal to the monitoring facility. With high-speed broadband monitoring you’ll also get free access to the Protect America’s SMART Connect apps.
Wireless is wonderful, but Protect America knows it isn’t the right solution for everyone. That’s why it offers consumers the option of standard telephone line monitoring. This is a good choice for people who can’t get high-speed Internet or live in an area where cell phone service is unreliable.
