What Are The Next Steps After Your Home Security Alarms Go Off In Boise?

An alarm system is intended to protect your home. But what actually transpires if your home security alarms go off in Boise? What are the right steps to take to help make sure you and your family are secure?

The first thing to do is not to panic. You should understand that your 24-hour monitoring professionals are always standing by to assist. Then take the steps described below to be fully equipped to handle any urgent situation.

Our 24-Hour Specialists Help You Stay Safe

A security monitoring representative is immediately alerted as soon as your Boise home security alarms go off. Once a representative is notified, they will contact you as quickly as possible to figure out what triggered your home’s defense. Your protection devices will trip due to a range of emergencies, including:

  • Break-in

  • Fire

  • Flooding

  • False alarm

In cases where the alarm was tripped accidentally—like forgetting that your sensors are turned on when you unlock a door— a representative will contact you and ask if assistance is required. Provide your predetermined password, and they can deactivate the alarm.

If you have an urgent situation, your monitoring team member will send out your local emergency services, including firefighters, EMS, and law enforcement, to your property. They can also act as a contact point in the event you aren't at home. Your dedicated monitoring staff will even apprise emergency services on which security device was triggered, helping them prepare for what could be a dangerous situation. The monitoring expert will maintain a connection with you to help you stay composed and inform you what you should do.

Recommended Steps if Your Alarm Goes Off In Boise

Getting roused from bed in the dead of night to a security warning echoing through your house is incredibly scary—even moreso if you have no idea why it’s happening. The smartest thing to do is keep yourself in control and take the following actions:

  • Before anything else, get somewhere safe. Collect all members of your family including pets in an expeditious manner and relocate to a secure room within your residence or depart the home if needed. It's a natural response to want to face the situation in your home, but this is not the best course of action. Instead, focus on attempting to keep you and your family members protected and let the trained personnel deal with the problem.

  • Secondly, utilize your home security app to keep connected with your monitoring staff. They'll send responders who will be in transit to your property in a flash.

  • Third, keep in close contact with your monitoring specialists and first responders. You can get connected, so everyone is sharing information. On the other hand, if you’re not able to get a direct call to authorities, you can still receive updates via text. Even if it’s only a false alarm, it's wise to maintain communications to all parties so you will be prepared should an actual problem take place.
