What Should You Do If Your Home Security Alarms Go Off In Oceanside?

A residential security package is intended to defend your property. But what occurs in the event your home security alarms go off in Oceanside? What should you do to be certain you and your loved ones are safe?

Your first priority is to avoid panicking. You should understand that your 24-hour monitoring experts are always standing by to assist. Then proceed with the recommended actions to be fully equipped to handle any urgent situation.

Our 24-Hour Specialists Are There For You

A 24-7 monitoring specialist is alerted in an instant as soon as your Oceanside home security alarms go off. Once a monitoring professional is alerted, they will call you without delay to figure out what triggered the security system. Your alarm can go off for several different reasons, including:

  • Criminal activity

  • Smoke

  • Water infiltration

  • False alarm

In circumstances when your system was tripped accidentally—like not remembering that your sensors are armed when you unlatch a window or door— an agent will contact you and figure out if assistance is required. Give them your proper code, and they can turn off the alarm.

In the event there is a legitimate crisis, your representative will summon your local emergency services, including police, fire, and EMS, to your property. They can also act as your proxy if nobody is home. Your dedicated monitoring staff also can let first responders know which security device was tripped, giving them a forewarning for what might be a dangerous situation. Then the agent will stay on the line with you to help you stay calm and let you know what you should do.

Here’s What You Should Do if Your Alarm Goes Off In Oceanside

Being awoken in the wee hours of the morning to a security warning going off is understandably frightening—especially if you aren’t clear as to why it’s occurring. The most important thing you can do is remain calm and follow these steps:

  • Before anything else, move to a safe place. Round up your family and pets as quickly as possible and relocate to a protected area in the house or depart the home if needed. It's typical to have an urge to confront the emergency in your home, but this is not the best course of action. Alternatively, focus on keeping you and your loved ones protected and let the trained personnel deal with the crisis.

  • As a second step, use the home security app to keep in communication with your monitoring team. They'll send authorities who will be on their way to your home in a flash.

  • Finally, keep in constant communication with your monitoring agent and emergency professionals. You can get connected, so representatives of each team are speaking on the same line. Or, if it’s not possible to get a direct call to authorities, get updates through text messages. Even if your dealing with a false alarm, it's smart to maintain communications to all parties so you will be prepared should a real emergency occur.
