Law enforcement officers apprehended two intruders earlier this week at a Muncie area school after our Central Station operator, Liz, received an alarm and dispatched police. Sonitrol alarms keep properties protected 24 hours, 365 days a year. Our team of professionals is always on the job, and we will alert law enforcement the moment one of our alarms is triggered. Way to go, Muncie Police Department, Ball State Police Department, and Liz from Team Sonitrol!
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.

Tired of false alarms? We hear you! So was the retired police officer who founded Sonitrol…That’s what prompted the officer, Al Cronk, to team up with an inventor over fifty-five years ago to develop an alarm system that would accurately determine if a break-in was in progress. Traditional systems depend on motion detector equipment, which unfortunately, can easily be triggered by something as tiny as a warehouse mouse. In his career as a police officer, Cronk had responded to way too many false alarms. His inventor friend, Robert Baxter, came up with the perfect solution, the audio sensor. This innovative sound device launched the Sonitrol alarm, the most dependable and verified alarm system in the industry. Using this audio technology, Sonitrol detects sounds at the first sign of a break-in attempt. Before the would-be perpetrators have even gained access to a facility, our Central Station operators can listen in and hear them trying to gain entry. Our team immediately dispatches law enforcement, who can arrive on scene before anything has been stolen and usually before anyone has broken into the facility.
Because of Sonitrol’s capability to verify true break-ins, we have the fastest police response times and the lowest false alarm rates in the industry. If you want to ensure your business, school, or facility is protected around the clock and that false alarms are a thing of the past, contact us today for a free assessment from one of our security design consultants at (800) 444-1191. We look forward to providing you with security peace of mind.
Finding a daycare provider is one of the most important choices a parent will make for their child. Parents look for daycares, that are close to their home and employment while creating an educational and healthy atmosphere for their children.
If you have chosen to tackle this mountain of responsibility and become a childcare provider, you understand that this is much more than just a babysitting job. Along with the regular business items like obtaining the proper licenses, dealing with payroll and paying taxes, there is also the responsibility of being a nurturing caregiver to several children, who all come with their own little personalities and quirks. With all this responsibility how can installing a fire and security system help your business?
– A simple security system will keep your daycare secure from would be burglars at night. But what can it do for you during the day? Sometimes, big people problems, come with the little people you have in your care. Just recently the IndyStar reported a domestic dispute that erupted in the front yard of a daycare. If a situation arises and it is difficult or impossible to use a phone, a properly installed panic button when pressed, will have police dispatched to your location immediately. With a verified audio system, panic alarms allow operators to hear exactly what is going on inside your daycare and relay important information to first responders.
– From the one room daycare, to the largest learning facility, all buildings should be equipped with a fire detection system. A monitored system will not only alarm if a fire is detected, but allow the caregivers to focus on the children while central station operators dispatch the fire department. Carbon monoxide levels can also be monitored with these systems to alert the occupants to leave the premises immediately and central operators to dispatch help. Annual fire testing can be added to provide the state or city fire marshal with their required documentation.
– Nanny cams and hidden cameras have become big news for catching criminal acts committed by home providers and day sitters. But you are very careful in how you hire your employees. So how can cameras help at your facility? Accountability becomes very clear when there is a camera running, both to workers and parents. And with the advancements in technology, you can instantly view these cameras on your smartphone, tablet or laptop. Everything that happens at your facility can be caught on camera and reviewed at a later date. You can be everywhere, even if you can’t be there.
– The importance of limited accessibility to a daycare is a primary concern. The big problems discussed earlier are an unfortunate fact of your business. An access system can actually lock out these problems before they get into your building. Authorized users can be issued key fobs which can be programmed to open doors within certain hours. Key fobs and access cards can also be deactivated immediately if it becomes necessary to prohibit entry into the building. Online management is also available to report user entry with a date and time stamp. Controlled building access; at your fingertips.
Whatever the size of your facility, fire and security systems can provide peace of mind and allow you to successfully manage all aspects of the security of your building.
If you are looking for a provider, make sure to check state inspection and violation reports. In Indiana and Kentucky, these reports are available for online viewing.
