We want to say thank you to Owensboro Police Department and our Central Station operator, Chaz, for their team work on another apprehension. Just the other night, Chaz picked up suspicious audio sounds at a tire business with a Sonitrol alarm and dispatched law enforcement right away. Police found the intruder, who had managed to get inside via a rooftop air conditioning duct. This is another reason Sonitrol audio alarms fully protect your property. Unlike motion-based competitor alarms, our audio sensors hear unusual sounds and will alert us to an intrusion. With wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling audio coverage, unlike a motion detection system with limited areas of protection, Sonitrol alarms guarantee that if anyone is attempting to break-in to your place, our monitoring team WILL HEAR THEM.
Our commitment to protecting the community began in 1969, when local dentist, Dr. William Standring, “Doc”, opened Sonitrol of Evansville. Doc’s cousin, the inventor Bob Baxter, had teamed up with a police officer in Anderson, Indiana just five years earlier and launched Sonitrol, the first of its kind verified alarm company that used audio technology to catch intruders. Unlike motion-based alarms that criminals knew how to bypass by simply stepping outside of the motion detector range, Sonitrol alarms provided wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling coverage with unique listening capabilities. This meant that if someone attempted to break-in from a non-conventional entry point, such as a ceiling or roof-top entrance, the audio sensor would hear the noise and alert the Central Station monitoring team. Doc was so impressed with this technology that he opened his own franchise in Evansville so he could provide verified alarms to the community and help police increase apprehensions.
One of Doc’s favorite memories was when the team at Sonitrol of Evansville and EPD apprehended someone entering through a local pharmacy’s roof the very first week the new Sonitrol alarm was installed. That same pharmacy had been plagued with repeated break-ins and theft up until Doc convinced them to try a Sonitrol alarm!
Today, over fifty years after Doc’s alarm company launched, our technology has expanded to offer verified video and audio monitoring, access control, fire monitoring, and more. With over 181,000 and counting criminal apprehensions, Sonitrol is a trusted name and a leader in security. We would love to give you and your business, your home, or property a detailed security plan, designed to suit your needs. Call us at 1-800-444-1191.

Minimize Damage Using Water Monitoring
Water, water everywhere and not a drop should be there. Oh the hassle of opening your business or coming home to find a small water leak that has turned into a major disaster. Even with the best insurance company, there are still the headaches of scheduling adjusters, plumbers, painters, etc.
Huge Affects to Your Business
How would it affect your business if 2 inches of water poured into one of the following areas:
- Computer/Server room
- Document storage area
Water damage isn’t a sight you want to see on a Monday morning! According to FEMA “Almost 40% of small business never reopen their doors…because just a few inches of water can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage.” And some things cannot be replaced easily if at all. If you could catch the leak early and prevent damage, what would it be worth to you?
After a wonderful vacation, all you want to do is come home and put the necessities away so you can sit down and rest before working the next day. Sadly, not all vacations end this way.
- 37% of all homeowners claim they have experienced losses due to water damage.
- A 1/8-inch crack in a pipe can release up to 250 gallons of water a day.
- Up to 93 percent of the cost of water damage could have been prevented.
- Water damage in the United States, is the second most frequently filed insurance, and had accounted for approximately $5 billion of reported claims, from 1999-2003

A leaky pipe or backed up piece of equipment usually happens when no one is around. The solution: AWaterBug®!
