While conventional security systems are motion-based, Sonitrol’s verified audio intrusion detection systems are sound-based. When an alarm is triggered, our Central Station monitoring operators can listen in to verify whether a break-in is in progress or if a false alarm has occurred. If it is a break-in, we immediately dispatch police and provide real-time information to the responding officers. Because of this ability to verify alarms, Sonitrol has the highest apprehension rate and the lowest false alarm rate in the industry.

In 1969, our founder, “Doc” Standring, opened his Sonitrol franchise, a verified electronic security company. Over fifty years later, we continue to protect commercial and residential properties with innovative technology and a team of professionals who are always on the job twenty-four hours a day. Call us for a free consultation at (800)444-1191. We love this excerpt from an archived interview with Dr. Standring:
When Standring opened Sonitrol of Evansville, he staffed it with part-time sales people and part-time installers. Standring himself worked weekdays as a dentist and evenings and weekends at his Sonitrol franchise. “We had very little overhead,” says Standring of the early days, “and I typed the invoices out on a typewriter at my house. I had a direct line in my office and when people would call me, they thought I was Sonitrol’s office.” Said Standring, “One of our first few customers was a personal friend who had a drugstore. We collared a guy coming through the roof the second night it was installed.”
With the purpose of providing sophisticated, verified alarms to his community in order to help law enforcement officers increase criminal apprehensions, in 1969, our founder, Dr. William “Doc” Standring opened Sonitrol.

Apprehension Alert! Yesterday, our Central Station operator, DJ, received a panic alarm at a business monitored by Sonitrol. Right away, DJ was able to pick up the stress in a woman’s voice from the audio feed, and he dispatched police. Law enforcement apprehended the suspect who was allegedly exposing himself and chasing after a woman in the store. Way to go, Muncie Police Department and DJ!
In the middle of the night, our Central Station operator, Chaz, received suspicious audio with voices from a local restaurant monitored by Sonitrol. Chaz dispatched law enforcement, and EPD made two apprehensions. The suspects had broken in through a drive-thru window for a late night snack, but little did they know they had tripped the alarm and Sonitrol was listening to protect the business. Great job, EPD and Chaz! If your commercial property isn’t monitored by a Sonitrol audio alarm, call us today for a free security consult at (800)444-1191. Sonitrol plus Police equals more apprehensions!
Early this morning, our Central Station operator, Chaz, received a verified audio alarm at a commercial property monitored by Sonitrol, and he dispatched law enforcement. Local police departments responded at once and apprehended two people at the location. Great job catching the intruders, Officers and Chaz!
Team Sonitrol’s Flavia stopped by roll call last night to thank EPD for their apprehension recently at a local restaurant monitored by Sonitrol. She took food from Subway, certificates of appreciation, and custom Sonitrol gifts. A special shout out goes to Officer Clayton, Officer Reed, and Officer Harter, who made the apprehension, and also to Maye, our Central Station operator who dispatched police. Last night also happened to be Lieutenant Wittmer’s last night before retirement from EPD, and Team Sonitrol has appreciated working with him over the years for the EPD Foundation’s SWAT Challenge. You will be missed, Lieutenant Wittmer! Pictured from left to right: Flavia, Officer Clayton, Officer Reed, and Lieutenant Josh Wittmer. (Not pictured: Officer Harter). Way to go, Evansville Police Department and Maye!
Shortly after midnight, our Central Station operator, Maye, received an alarm at a local restaurant with one of our verified alarms and dispatched police. Law enforcement officers arrived on scene, located someone inside the building, and made an apprehension. Nice job, Maye and the Evansville Police Department!
