Smart Home Camera

Top Notch Security Cameras,
Systems, and Technology

Often, the use of video surveillance in a business can
make the difference between earning a profit and losing
money due to theft, vandalism and improper employee
behavior. But it’s also a good way to keep an eye on your
property, especially when no one is there. Implementing a
video surveillance solution by First Response can help
reduce false accident claims (slips/falls), employee and
customer theft, as well as help manage premise liability
and worker productivity. In the end, what benefits the most
is the bottom line.

First Response's
Talk-Down Service

First Response’s Talk-Down Service utilizes the power of
surveillance cameras and loud speaker integration to monitor
and react to specific security areas of the client’s choosing.
When a security event is triggered, our operators can not
only log into your cameras to asses a threat, but take a
proactive approach by talking directly to the intruder to deter
them from the premises. Our Talk-Down Service is an
amazing tactic to prevent current and further damage during
a security threat while waiting for authorities to arrive. Get in
touch with us today to schedule a no-obligation consultation!

What Our Clients Are Saying:

“My wife and I decided to upgrade our 30 year old security system. Our monitoring service and call center was in the mid west. We were looking for local service and on the recommendation of friends decided on First Response. Now, a month into that relationship, I can say it has taken a few installation visits, but First Response has listened and provided the security upgrade we were aiming for. The installation personnel that came to our house was very experienced. We feel we are in good hands.”

“We’ve worked with First Response for many years, now, and they have always done a great job for us! Nice people to talk with, very reasonable rates, and now they can take care of our fire extinguishers, too! We highly recommend these folks.”

“First Response embodies all the positive attributes I was looking for in a security company and had not found in previous providers. At each stage the First Response team has been professional, knowledgeable, prompt and genuinely invested in making their services work for the customer. I feel much more secure with First Response.”

We have used First Response for the last 6+ years. They are always professional and timely. When it comes to security of my business they’re the only ones I will ever use.”

“First Response is very thorough and cares about their clients. They are quick to respond to any concerns or problems that arise. We have been very happy with the service they provide.”

“First Response came to our response on time and fixed our security problem. The technician was polite and professional. We would highly recommend using First Response for your security needs.”

Big Enough To Get The Job Done, Small Enough To Care.
