What Happens When Your Home Security Alarms Go Off In Oklahoma City?

An alarm system should safeguard your family. But what occurs when your home security alarms go off in Oklahoma City? What actions should you take to ensure you and your loved ones are safe?

The first thing to do is not to panic. You should understand that your around-the-clock monitoring professionals are there for you. Then take the steps described below to be fully equipped to handle any urgent situation.

Our Dedicated Representatives Are Focused On Your Safety

A security monitoring representative is alerted in an instant whenever your Oklahoma City home security alarms go off. When an agent is informed, they will reach out to you n a hurry to figure out what triggered your home’s defense. Your protection devices will activate for several different reasons, including:

  • Criminal activity

  • Fire

  • Flood

  • Alarm tripped by accident

In situations when your system was accidentally triggered—like not remembering that your entry-point sensors are turned on when you unlatch a window or door— a representative will reach out to ask if you need help. Supply them with your predetermined password, and they'll cancel the alarm.

If you have an urgent situation, your representative will summon first responders, including firefighters, EMS, and law enforcement, to your home. They can also function as a contact point when you aren't at home. The monitoring agent can also let first responders know which security device was set off, giving them a forewarning for a potentially dangerous situation. Your monitoring professional will remain on the phone with you to help you stay in control and inform you what the next steps should be.

Steps to Take if Your Alarm Goes Off In Oklahoma City

Waking up in the middle of the night to a security warning going off is understandably frightening—even moreso if you don’t know why it’s going off. The most important thing you can do is keep yourself in control and proceed with the following:

  • In the first place, move to a safe place. Collect your family and pets in an expeditious manner and proceed to a secure room in the house or leave the premises entirely. It's typical to have an urge to want to face the situation in your home, but this may put you and your family at greater risk. As an alternative, put a priority on keeping you and your loved ones protected and let the professionals handle the issue.

  • Second, use the mobile security application to keep in communication with your monitoring agent. They'll send emergency professionals who will be en route to your home in a matter of moments.

  • Finally, keep a persistent line of communication with your monitoring specialists and emergency professionals. You have the ability to be patched through, so everyone is sharing information. On the other hand, if it’s not possible to get a direct call to authorities, get updates via text. Even in false alarm situations, it's wise to keep adequately communicating to all parties so you will be ready should an actual problem happen.
