Most people are unfamiliar with a Key Holder and Alarm Verification Service. They assume that when their Security System activates that local Police will respond and “take care” of the situation. But, what they fail to realize is that A) local Police are busy (and getting busier), that their Alarm System is not a high priority, and B) if/when Police do arrive they don’t have a lot of time to waste and can only perform a cursory perimeter check anyway. Listed below are several reasons why a third party Key-Holding and Alarm Verification Service are paramount for your home or your business.
A.) Police will not hold your keys. Hence, they cannot enter your premises and find out what’s really happening.
B.) Unless someone is always available to respond with your keys for entry, in a timely fashion, then whatever caused the alarm will probably cause it again, and again, etc.
C.) It’s inconvenient at best, risky at worst, for anybody to respond to any alarm without proper training.
D.) Just getting to the location is risky enough. Most alarms occur late at night. Do you really want to be on the road, all by yourself, after midnight?
E.) Do you really want to burden your neighbors by doing you this “one small favor” when you’re not there?
F.) Legal constructs such as Proximate Cause and Vicarious Liability can come into play if the worst should happen.
G.) Many local Police are going to a Verified Response Policy. This means that unless the alarm is verified by someone on-site as to being a real alarm/break-in they will not respond.
H.) If you’re a homeowner you’re probably already busy. If you’re a business owner then you work hard enough during the day. Can’t you use a little help to alleviate some of your burden?
