Recently, a local Garden Grove wireless computer store had over $100,000 in iPhones and iPads stolen during a Smash-and-Grab; Garden Grove dispatchers received a call from an alarm monitoring station representative at 2:00 am notifying them there was an alarm activation. I can imagine the dispatcher thinking, “Here we go again, dispatching the police and using up vital resources for what will probably be another false alarm created by an insufficient intrusion system.”
The fact is, 99% of alarm activations are false alarms. The police know it, alarm companies know it and so do the crooks. The only one that doesn’t know is the honest business owner who is hoping that the intrusion system he or she got for FREE works when the crooks mark his business with a bull’s-eye and smash through his front door in the middle of the night. This is when one realizes that if he had invested in a properly designed security system, the business owner and his precious inventory would not be permanently departed!
Here is another truth in the security world, the crooks know these type of ‘free’ alarm systems and circumvent them every day and night. It’s like having the opposing football team know every play you call each down.
Maybe it’s just me but I don’t like to lose in anything and if I was a huge giant security company giving away free unreliable systems, I might think about changing my playbook since the crooks are taking a can whoop butt out on their systems each and every night.
But back to our story in Garden Grove…the alarm monitoring station representative had called the store owner to inform him that his alarm had gone off – but they wanted to make sure that it wasn’t another false alarm from a faulty system. The business’ surveillance system caught the whole crime on video but it was after the fact. The dirty deed was done and a $100,000 in inventory had vanished through the broken front door before the police could get there. Finals score: Crooks – $100,000, Security system – $0!
Wouldn’t it have been great if there had been an eyewitness watching the whole event with an iPhone recording and sending the video straight to the police dispatcher? Do you think that the police will respond quicker knowing that they can catch these stealing SOB’s in the act? You betcha! The police call it priority response and they treat it just like a crime in progress. Unlike traditional security systems, crooks don’t have minutes they’ve got seconds and that simply is not enough time to steal your stuff!
But what kind of wonderful system could make this a reality without costing a fortune? What kind of service like this would have the Los Angeles Police Department giving burglar alarm activations a high priority call status?
