When looking for a wholesale central station provider you want to be sure that the provider you choose has best-in-class infrastructure. But what exactly does that mean?
A provider who offers true redundancy will have multiple monitoring centers located in different geographical locations to minimize the potential for disruption. Plus they’ll have duplicate systems in place for critical monitoring technology. This way, your clients will be protected no matter what.
Most importantly, when your wholesale alarm monitoring service has this type of infrastructure in place, it will help differentiate your business from the competition and help you bring in more new customers. That’s because what you’re really selling is peace of mind. And, your access to best-in-class, mission critical monitoring infrastructure will help you more effectively build trust with prospects and convince them to buy.
So, what exactly should you look for when choosing a provider, to help you build trust and ultimately drive more new business? Keep reading to find out more.
- Multiple Locations
If your central station provider only has one location and it goes down, you run the risk of your customers’ service being offline. This is why you should look for a central station provider with redundant monitoring centers in multiple locations. At Security Partners, we take the concept of redundancy to a whole new level. We offer three monitoring centers located in three separate time zones that run on three different national power grids. Our monitoring centers are fully-staffed with TMA-certified operators and operate 24/7/365. This means you can count on us to NEVER be offline.
- Redundant Power Backups
It’s not enough for a central station to only tie into the local power grid. Local power supplies can and do fail. In some parts of the country during peak usage, brownouts or rolling blackouts are coming. That means its important to look for a central station provider that has a backup power supply. At Security Partners, we have two backup generators. The first generator provides backup in the event that the municipal power supply fails. Then, if the first generator fails, the second backup generator kicks in. In the unlikely case that both backup generators fail, we provide uninterruptable backup battery power supply on all critical monitoring systems. This ensures that our facility will stay up and running no matter what.
- Layered Security
When access control is not taken seriously, the entire system is vulnerable to intruders with malicious intent. This could disrupt operations and negatively impact your clients’ safety. That makes it important to look for a central station provider with robust security measures in place to protect both their team and the technology at stake. At Security Partners, we use biometric access control, IP surveillance cameras, and a hardened building to ensure bad actors cannot disrupt the service we provide to your clients. These layered security measures give you and your clients peace of mind.
