How can Western Security help a business?
A business can be helped in multiple ways. Detection of either intrusion or fire alarm conditions, tracking of employee’s activity. Video observation of premises can assist in accessing events that are out of the business view. Controlled access by time schedule can make a business safer and more secure by limiting access to unwanted persons.
What happens if I accidentally trigger my alarm system?
If an intrusion signal is generated, our Central Station contacts designated person to verify the alarm. If a fire alarm signal is generated the Central Station verifies the alarm after dispatch of the Fire Department. A customer can also contact the Central Station and after proper authentication, request cancellation of dispatch.
Can I use my phone to operate my security system?
Cellular connections to security systems allow a customer to both view and operate their system remotely thru an app on their phone or connected device.
What are the uses for security systems besides protecting my home?
Protection of the home consists of more than detecting intrusion. Fire alarm and environmental components provide offsite notification of conditions that can have major consequences. Low temperature monitoring is extremely valuable in our climate. Water detection or water mitigation system can prevent damage that might otherwise be unnoticed until too late.
I have pets, is that a problem?
Security systems can be armed to different level. If pets are present, a system can be armed without motion detection turned on; conversely there are motion detectors that accommodate the size and location of many pets.

A telephone line is not necessary in most instances. Providing there is adequate cellular coverage, offsite monitoring is available via a cellular communicator.
