What We Do

We don’t just monitor, we respond!

In the event of an alarm, there’s a big difference between an in-person response and a phone call from someone at a remote call center monitoring your alarm. For just a little more than you’re probably paying for monitoring alone, we can deliver safety and peace of mind for your home or business.

We offer customized, professionally installed security systems and interactive technology to suit your specific  needs. Our state-of-the-art 24-hour central monitoring service directly dispatches our officers, 24/7, 365 days per year.

The Armed Response Team Difference

Our comprehensive service delivers the protection you need and the peace-of-mind you want. Nothing deters would-be burglars more than one of our signs stating an armed veteran police officer will respond if the alarm is triggered.  And don’t forget, you will NEVER get a false alarm fine from the city.  And, changes in City policy mean APD officers don’t respond to unverified alarms, so that is an even stronger reason for our officers to respond every time your alarm is triggered.

Security Assessment

Our service starts with a free and no obligation security assessment by one of ART’s Security Advisors. Your Security Advisor is trained to see your home or business “through the eyes of the bad guys.” Drawing on over 25 years  of police experience and crime scene investigation, they will work with you to understand the security vulnerabilities of your home or business, and develop a proposal that will fit your needs and budget.

Armed Response Service

The Armed Response Team provides an immediate in-person armed response for businesses and homeowners. When your burglar alarm goes off, our monitoring center dispatches one of our highly-trained veteran police officers.

Our officer personally inspects the entire perimeter of your home or business. If an intrusion has occurred, our officer secures the premises, calls the police, and detains any suspects until the police arrive.

After our officer finishes inspecting your premises, they complete a full incident report and email it to you.

Our service eliminates the need for you to return home during the day or get up in the middle of the night to check your alarm — and the liability and danger of having a family member, neighbor or employee respond to your alarm.  We are the ONLY company that can guarantee you’ll get an immediate in-person armed response to all your triggered alarms

Alarm System Installation, Conversion and Maintenance

The Armed Response Team uses our own licensed, bonded, and experienced technicians to install and service both residential and commercial alarm systems.  We never use piecework sub-contractors like other high-volume, low-service companies.

If you have an existing alarm system, we will utilize as much of your current system as possible. With existing alarms, we can often simply reprogram the existing system and immediately connect in to our monitoring and dispatch station.

If you don’t have an existing or functional alarm system, we will recommend and quote a system during our security assessment of your home or business.

Here is a partial list of our capabilities:
• Burglar alarms – including smoke, fire and emergency (panic, medical) signals.
• Access controls systems
• Video monitoring, both locally recorded, and viewable over the internet
• Outdoor perimeter intrusion detection
