Security and Alarms

Security Monitoring Systems

Installing a security or fire system involves more than the presence of an alarm. After installation, we take the next step toward comprehensively safeguarding your property by providing alarm monitoring. A monitored alarm means that trained professionals are standing by at our central station facility which is located in the northwest, ready to respond to your signal and quickly alert law enforcement in the event of an alarm. For homeowners, it can make the difference between safety and catastrophe; for business owners, it can bridge the gap between asset and liability.

IWATCH Communications is a professional dispatch and monitoring center providing services throughout the USA. Owned by First Response, iWATCH Communications is a local in-house, UL listed, 5 Diamond certified central station. Because we are local, we personally work with you to help you operate and understand your system. We offer multiple monitoring technologies, including:

Although we have multiple technologies available, our goal is the same: to receive and respond correctly to each and every alarm signal. We offer full redundancy by combining different technologies together, and we have products that allow you to eliminate telephone lines while still meeting strict UL fire codes. Our goal of ‘first time right’ service will prove to you that we take the extra step each and every time.

We specialize in remote video monitoring services, including video verification and virtual guard tours. Our operators are trained to remotely view live video from your location, providing valuable information which allows us to dispatch accordingly. This service can reduce false alarms and also provide more efficient dispatching. Contact First Response today to schedule a free security analysis of your home or business property.
