The EMC Security received an alarm from the security system at the home of a Lawrenceville customer. It was in the middle of the afternoon at 3:16pm when the back door sensors were activated. The customer was at home alone. The monitoring center immediately contacted the customer who said she was at the home on the 2nd level and did not know why the alarm had been activated as the sirens were ringing.
The police were immediately dispatched as the monitoring center operator remained on the phone with the customer until the police arrived. Moments later, she advised that a burglar had indeed tried to break in her home and that downstairs back door was wide open. The sound of the alarm system had scared the intruder away and prevented him entering her home. Had the alarm not been activated, she would have never known that someone was trying to break into her home. This is a true testament as to why you should ALWAYS arm your system. This could have ended with a very bad outcome, had the customer not had a security system and come face to face with an intruder who did not realize there was anyone home. The burglar could have gravely harmed the customer as well as steal all of her valuable possessions.
