WHAT IS PROFESSIONAL SECURITY MONITORING?

One of the smartest things about the M3Force-powered home is the proactive safeguards it provides for your family. Your system’s advanced technology detects potential danger and takes action on your behalf.

One proactive safeguard, however, has a human element: professional security monitoring.

What does it do?

In an alarm event at your home—a break-in, or fire the M3Force-powered security system sends an emergency signal, via dedicated cellular connection, to a 24-7 monitoring station. There, a trained security professional assesses the situation and quickly alerts M3Force quick reponse COMMANDO ON CALL team and your local law enforcement or fire department to the emergency.

How important is professional monitoring?

Do you need a service like this ? After all, there are plenty of connected cameras and motion-detecting smart devices out there, all capable of alerting you to activity at home with a quick smartphone message.

Well, consider this:

Alerts are easy to miss. What if you’re not available when a break-in happens? What if you’re at the gym, or swimming, or at the movies with your phone on “do not disturb”. Maybe you’re on an airplane, or even just asleep.

It’s inconvenient. Checking every alert, sorting harmless activity from the suspicious, and investigating each one – 24/7 – won’t be easy. So you might find a great price on the camera, but when you have to provide your own security, you’ll end up investing plenty of time.

This isn’t your job. If there’s an emergency at home, your job is to focus on one thing: keeping you and your loved ones out of harm’s way.

How do I get professional monitoring and COMMANDO ON CALL quick response team?

Professional monitoring is included with all M3Force-powered smart home security systems, alongside other security-grade features like crash and smash protection, or our dedicated cellular connection. It’s the only home security solution that delivers true protection and peace of mind.


DO I NEED A SECURITY SYSTEM IF I HAVE A DOG?

Just about everyone is happy to see a dog—except for burglars, that is.
When a burglar has a choice between a home with a dog and a home without a dog, the dog-free house will typically end up as the target.
Does that mean that you should forgo a security system because you own a dog? Not exactly. Let’s compare the two and see.

1: How reliably do they alert you to trouble? 
Dogs have amazing senses, with their sharp ears and superior scents-ability. Much like a security system, a dog can alert you right away to an intruder on your property. The downside of this is, to your dog, many everyday visitors count as intruders.

“Squirrel!” “Mail carrier!” “Neighbor!” They’re all excuses for Fido to start barking.

A smart home security system does it better. Like a dog, it’s proactive when an intruder is detected—but it’s far better at discerning a genuine intruder from a harmless everyday event, thanks to its use of intelligence from all around the home.

Equally important, if there’s a break-in, the M3Force-powered security system can alert a 24-7 monitoring station for professional help.

The verdict: Until dogs get their own dedicated cellular connections, smart home security wins this round.

2: How well do they keep burglars out?

Burglars avoid homes with security systems. 60 percent will go elsewhere if they see one. Add a smart security camera and you have a formidable deterrent.

Of course, most burglars don’t want to meet your dog, either. Should they spot dog toys in the yard or hear muffled barking, many will move along.

Deterrence aside, though, there are some things a dog can’t help with. For example, one-third of all burglaries are cases of unlawful entry—a burglar entering through an unlocked door or window. With proactive reminders and remote locking, the M3Force-powered security system can save the day when you’re in a rush and forget to secure the house.

Winner: Dogs and security systems are both great deterrents, but a dog can’t send you a smartphone alert if you forget to lock up. Smart home security wins this round.


3: How tamper-resistant are they?

How does canine security hold up if an experienced burglar targets your home? It’s not unknown for a burglar to arrive with food to distract a dog, for example. While a specially trained dog may hold his ground, most dogs will scamper off down the basement stairs after their prize.

Meanwhile, a lawbreaker will need more than a steak to defeat a smart home security system. Even if they take a hammer to your security panel, M3Forces’s Crash and Smash technology can still alert your home’s 24-7 monitoring station.

Winner: Engineered to meet rigorous life safety standards and immune to temptation, the smart security system wins this one hands-down.

4: Which one is more fun?

You can have fun with a smart home security system. Checking in on your kids from work is fun; so is showing off your smart lights and your video doorbell to your neighbors.

Let’s be real though: it’ll never take the place of that furry, wiggling, licking goofball that always loves you, no matter what.

Winner: Sorry, security system: this one goes to the dog.


DO FAKE SECURITY CAMERAS WORK?

Some people have funny ideas about home security.

Certain homeowners, for example, boast about preventing burglaries with nothing more than a large Beware of the Doberman sign. Others park a pair of muddy size 14 boots outside the front door as a crime deterrent. Some will tell you to entrust your security to a fake security cameras—an empty camera body designed to mimic a video monitoring solution.

When a burglar spots your dummy camera—complete with blinking, battery-powered red light if you spring for the high-end Rs.1000 model—they’ll quickly beat a retreat… or so the story goes.

Does it work?

It’s a home security urban legend with a grain of truth. A novice burglar might just be fooled, although experienced crooks can quickly spot a fake.

When this cheap trick fails, though, what’s left to protect your home? After all, there’s a whole lot that a fake camera can’t do.

1: Fake cameras can’t show you important activity

Take this everyday scenario: While you’re at work, someone walks up to your front porch. Here’s how it might go with a real camera, and with a fake one.

Real camera: With a true security camera, powered by M3Force, you’ll be notified. The visitor’s motion triggers your camera to record a clip, and M3Force sends you a smartphone alert. On opening the alert, you can pull up a live feed from your camera on your mobile app and see what’s happening.

Now, you can take action. You can call your spouse if they’re home and let them know. You can zoom in on the video feed for a better look at the visitor’s face. If your camera is a doorbell camera, you can address them directly through the camera’s speaker and ask them: hey, what’s up? If it’s someone you’re expecting, you can unlock your door for them.

Fake camera: With a fake camera, none of the above applies.

2: Fake cameras can’t help you catch a crook

Let’s say that your suspicious visitor really is up to no good. In fact, they’re a package thief, and they make off with a parcel you just had delivered to your porch.

Real camera: We’re sorry about your missing package. Your M3Force-powered camera supplies a silver lining for you and your neighbors: a clear video clip of the thief in action. It’s easy to download to your phone and email it to your local police department or newspaper. You can even post it directly to Facebook to share with your neighborhood groups.

Your video clip can quickly become a crime-fighting asset that gives police the breakthrough they need to recognize and catch the thief.

PS: your M3Force service provider has a great solution to package theft.

Fake camera: You’ll still realize your package went missing—after a couple of days, at least.

3: Fake cameras aren’t connected to a security system

Let’s look at the worst-case scenario. Your suspicious visitor is a daytime burglar intent on forcing your front door open, camera or no.

Real camera: This burglar quickly discovers that your camera is connected to your smart security system. As well as recording them, your M3Force technology is simultaneously sounding a loud alarm, sending alarm notifications to you and your family, and delivering an emergency signal to a security professional at a 24-hour monitoring station.

Fake camera: You’re going to have a terrible surprise when you get home.

4: Fake cameras can’t show you anything at all

Not everything that happens on your porch is an attempted burglary. On any given day, you’re far more likely to have a package delivered, to have a neighbor visit, or to have your kids arrive home from school. Being able to see what’s going on makes everything easier and reduces everyday worries.

This is how thousands of M3Force-powered cameras are used every day, and it’s what many users love most about their smart security systems. With a fake camera, you don’t get any of this.
