Verified Audio Detection

If It’s Not Verified, It’s Simply Guessing

Sonitrol’s verified audio intrusion detection system is one of the most powerful tools you can add to your security arsenal – and it’s unique in the marketplace.

Unlike conventional security systems, SONITROL’s verified alarm systems are sound-based, not motion-based. So, when an alarm is triggered, our monitoring professionals can actually listen in to determine whether a break-in is in progress, or whether a false alarm has occurred. If it is a break-in, we immediately dispatch police and relay real-time information to the responding officers. If it is a false alarm, we simply reset the system without bothering you or the police.

Because of this ability to verify alarms, SONITROL has the highest apprehension rate and the lowest false alarm rate in the industry.

For retail businesses we can add hold-up alert capabilities that automatically activate a live audio feed in the event of a robbery during business hours.

How Verified Audio Works

Our unique ability to verify each audio activation helps minimize dispatches to false alarms and has earned SONITROL the trust of police officials throughout Polk County. Average response time to a SONITROL alarm is eight minutes, compared to upwards of 45 minutes for a non-verified alarm.

Here’s how Sonitrol’s unique verified detection system functions

  • The system immediately alerts the Sonitrol Monitoring Center

    The system transmits the sounds of the break-in attempt and a code describing the location of the activated audio sensor.

  • Professional operators listen to live audio from your facility

    Trained operators are on duty 24/7 to determine and verify the nature of the sounds while reviewing pertinent customer data on a computer screen. They’re assigned to your account, so they know which sounds are “normal” and which are not.

  • Operators take appropriate action

    As necessary, our skilled operators will call the proper authorities immediately or reset your system without disturbing you or safety officials.

  • Verified dispatch and apprehension

    Police respond quickly to a verified crime in progress. Our skilled operators stay on the line to relay pertinent information.

Sonitrol’s audio and video technology offers maximum protection for your premises. Conventional perimeter security systems only use door and window contacts to detect intrusion. That’s not enough.

In addition to door contacts, SONITROL uses highly sensitive audio sensors that detect unconventional entries. These strategically placed audio sensors detect abnormal sounds within your building. Burglars make noise when they try to break in through a wall, ceiling, or HVAC system and our audio detects it.

For those areas with machinery that make noise during the night, such as air compressors, cameras are added to your system so operators can visually confirm a break in. Unlike a motion-based system, which only offer “cones” of protection around the motion detectors, SONITROL offers true wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor coverage – verified complete protection for every inch of space in your facility. Would-be perpetrators can’t evade our audio sensors by moving along a wall, going around a corner or ducking between aisles.

If they make noise-and they always do-we will hear them.
