To illustrate what happens when a burglar breaks into a home with a police response alarm, here’s our very own fictional scenario. Picture the scene…
John is on holiday in New York. It’s 11pm. He’s fast asleep. Back at home in Manchester, it’s 4am and a burglar has targeted his home, breaking through the back door to get in.
The contact sensor on the back door immediately detects the intrusion. When the burglar moves into the hallway he is seen by a motion sensor. Then another motion sensor detects him when he moves into the living room. At this point the Alarm has been triggered and the siren is sounding. John has paired his Boundary alarm with Philips Hue smart lights, which are now flashing red. The Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) has seen the alarm activation too.
After not hearing from John, the ARC calls the police control room directly via a special line reserved for graded systems. It requests a Level 1 police response and requests police dispatch.
Because John is out of the country, the ARC phones John’s nominated keyholder, his neighbour.
The burglar is frantically looking for valuables to steal. The flashing red smart lights hamper his vision and he’s panicking because of the loud siren. He decides to leave empty-handed.
John’s neighbour is waiting when the police arrive, and together they check the perimeter. They find the back door has been forced open, so the police enter the property to make sure there’s no one inside. As John’s home has an URN, the police know it’s layout and floor plan. This means they are confident moving around it. Once they confirm there’s no burglar the property is then secured. With the neighbours help, they seal they back door.
John’s neighbour then contacts John, tells him of the events that have unfolded overnight. With his home now safe and very little he can do from New York, John’s neighbour insists he enjoys the rest of his holiday.
Double-checked every time just to be safe.
No one wants to call the police unnecessarily. So you can relax knowing every sensor activation is double-checked by the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). When only one sensor is triggered it’s likely to be an accident – a false alarm – so we’ll call you, but not the police. But if two sensors are triggered, and the movement pattern looks suspicious this confirms the break-in and it’s time to green light the blue lights to keep you safe.
