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.

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.”

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.
