The SDM 100 Report, from Security Dealer Magazine, ranks top alarm companies nationwide and has been published each year since 1991. Sonitrol of Evansville is proud to have ranked in the top 100 every year since 2009, this year at 78 in the industry. The SDM 100 Report looks at U.S. companies that earn their revenue from the sale, installation, service, and monitoring of electronic security systems, such as intrusion, fire alarm, access control, and video surveillance, including residential to commercial. We are thrilled that our family-owned and locally operated company stands out in this nationwide report.
Verified Video Monitoring from Sonitrol, “SonaVision”, is a state-of-the-art surveillance system to protect your commercial property.
When an alarm is tripped, this video monitoring allows not only you, the customer, to view live video from your place of business, it allows our twenty-four-seven Central Station team to pinpoint and verify the disturbance. Our operators can relay critical details, such as suspect descriptions and locations, to law enforcement they dispatch. When our team verifies an alarm, they provide responding police officers with helpful information and increase officer safety.
Many businesses can benefit from SonaVision, including retail businesses, medical offices, schools, churches, and warehouses. SonaVision protects your property from external, as well as internal threats, as it covers loading docks, merchandise, cash registers, and parking lots alike. Our security consultants will walk through your property, pinpoint optimal locations for video cameras, and design the alarm for your specific needs. Call us at (800)444-1191 for a free consultation.

You may have seen some of our Sonitrol team on the news last week. Channel 14 News covered a story on Gibson Southern High School’s latest increase in security measures. Ben and Josh from Sonitrol can be seen in the video installing new door prop monitors to our commercial security system in place at the school. Door prop notifications allow us to know if someone has propped a door open so we can alert the staff during school hours to exact locations or potential threats. If you want to enhance your school security system as well, call us at (800)444-1191 for a free consultation.
