Brinks Security Systems and Home Monitoring
Company profile and offerings
Since its establishment in 1859, Brink’s has played a number of roles. Initially a delivery service, Brink’s soon realized its talent for protection and by 1956 was the worlds largest armored transportation company.
Brink’s security systems were born out of this in 1983 and their strong history and reputation ensured immediate success in the protection market. Indeed, Brink’s security systems now have nearly 1 million customers throughout Canada and the US. Having been called upon to protect a range of invaluable artifacts from the US Declaration of Independence, to the first samples of rock brought back from the moon, it’s no wonder that so many people rely on Brink’s security systems to protect their homes.
The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) report that 79% fire deaths occur in the home, with a 50% increased chance of survival if the home is fitted with a fire alarm system. The FBI report that a home is burgled every 15 seconds, with 2/3 of those being homes without a fitted security system. With statistics like this being published in the media it is no wonder that more and more people are looking to install a Brink’s security system. If an alarm is triggered, it will be immediately picked up by the Brink’s monitoring centre where their staff will respond appropriately, informing the emergency services if necessary. Whether you are at home or away, someone will be keeping a close eye on you, your family and your home.
There are a number of features that make the Brink’s security system top of the range. If an alarm is triggered, the system sends a signal to the Brink’s monitoring centre where it will be interpreted and acted upon. The system also emits chimes in the house if any of the protected doors or windows are opened. The keypad also contains direct, one-touch links to the police and fire services. Though permanently on-call assistance is obviously expensive, it’s hard to put a price on the security of your home and family. And financially speaking there is some compensation, as installing a security system will mean your household insurance payments are reduced by up to 20%.
