There are millions of people seeking ultimate peace of mind when it comes to their families, health, and property. Professional monitoring of security and fire alarm systems, personal emergency response systems (PERS), and other IoT connected safety devices and apps can provide a real sense of freedom and wellbeing and help people live their lives to the fullest. Peace comes from knowing that their home is protected while away on vacation, an aging loved one is being closely monitored when caregivers can’t be there, or even knowing that personal safety measures are in place as they commute to and from work. Such peace of mind is priceless and highly empowering.
Did you know that according to the FBI there are over 1,000,000 residential break-ins every year? That’s an estimated one break-in every 26 seconds. Although those statistics might seem a bit grim, it is a fact that professionally monitored security systems deter home burglars up to 300% more than homes without a professionally monitored system. A physical security system linked to a professional monitoring center with state-of-the-art technology and highly trained monitoring specialists not only deters burglars but results in the fastest, most accurate emergency response when the need is real. The same holds true for commercial security systems monitoring.
'Switching gears, let’s consider what professional monitoring can do for the daily safety and wellbeing of individuals. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are an estimated 7,000,000 people in the U.S. who are considered immunocompromised, or 2.7% of the population. Additionally, 16.5% percent of the U.S. population are classified as senior citizens, age 65 and older. In both instances, many of these individuals are unable to live fully independent lives due to health restrictions.
The first profile (immunocompromised) consists of people, age 15-45 who have medical conditions that restrict independent living. People in this group often prefer to avoid assisted living programs because they can be restrictive and costly. On top of that, they are young and tend to rely more on their parents. They suffer from an array of challenges such as seizures, paralysis, heart problems or other unpredictable conditions. For people in this category, a PERS device can bring a sense of safety knowing they will be able to get help when an emergency arises. There is something enabling in knowing an AvantGuard operator is just a button push away. This can help them feel less isolated and give them confidence to perform normal daily activities and enjoy mobility as they once did.
Did you know there were approximately three million car accidents in the U.S. in 2020 alone. According to the CDC almost 2,400 teens were in fatal car accidents in 2019, and traffic fatalities overall increased by 7.2% in 2020 amongst all drivers even though there were actually fewer drivers on the road.
