Media 144 Security Solutions offers a network of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed Central Alarm Monitoring Centers. In addition to on-site redundancies, we operate a network of central stations located in Lafayette, LA Baton Rouge, LA, Chicago, IL and Austin, TX, each of which is bi-directionally redundant with one another so that all signal traffic is constantly shared live between the different centers. We are able to offload or allocate peak call volume to different centers in emergency situations or as needed so that all alarms are answered seamlessly and without delay. If there is a power outage at one or more station, the traffic automatically re-directs to the additional stations without missing a beat. This is a live redundancy situation that few, if any, other central stations can currently offer.
Our central station is a self-powered facility with dual uninterrupted power supply (UPS) systems, each of which is capable of powering the facility for a minimum of four hours (a UL requirement). In addition to the UPS system, on-site diesel generators automatically power the center to full capacity. Fiber optic telephone lines are supplied in two separate pathways from the phone company to prevent interruptions in communications. We also provide fully redundant computer servers, alarm receivers, phone lines and cellular backup service.
In addition to standard security, fire and medical alert monitoring, Media 144 offers the industry's highest UL-rated platform for video and access control monitoring. Media 144 provides a non-proprietary, real-time proactive and interactive monitoring solution with an open architecture for seamless integration with almost any video surveillance system on the market.
We are Five Diamond Central Station Certified, a certification achieved by less than 100 of the approximately 3,000 central stations in the US, testifying that all of their operators have achieved proficiency through the CSAA Central Station Operator Training Course, which covers all phases of communications with customers, law enforcement, fire and emergency services.
A home burglary occurs every 12 seconds. The losses and strong feelings of violation and vulnerability that follow can be devastating. By taking preventive steps and developing the right habits, you can reduce your chances of becoming a target.
Securing your home begins right at your front door! Make sure you have sturdy locks and that every family member is in the habit of locking the door. Even when you're working in the yard, keep doors locked. A burglar can be in and out of your home in just a few minutes. Don't give burglars any place to hide - keep shrubs trimmed and use outdoor lighting around your home.
If you arrive home and it appears that your home has been broken into, do not go inside - call the police immediately. If you hear a burglar at night, stay in bed and pretend to be asleep. Most often a burglar will want to take valuables and leave unnoticed.
If you're away on vacation or for a business trip, be sure to keep jewelry and other small valuables in a safe deposit box. Have a friend or neighbor collect your newspapers and mail, and arrange to have your lawn mowed or snow shoveled. Never leave a note on the door that indicates your absence. Leave window shades and blinds in normal positions, and use timers on both indoor and outdoor lights. Making your home look lived in while you're away will make it less of a target to intruders.
Where do you put your trust?
Nothing matters more than keeping you, your family, and your livelihood protected. That's a large responsibility.
Are you ever safe enough?
No one ever expects bad things to happen to them - it always happens to the other guy. Except when it doesn't.
