Frequently Asked Questions

If the power goes out, does my intrusion detection system still work?

Yes, your system will continue to work on a battery backup. The length of backup time will vary by panel type.

Do you have to put holes in my walls to install a security system?

No, there are wireless systems available that don’t require physical wiring installation.

Can I view my cameras from my smartphone?

Yes, business owners can view their cameras from anywhere on their smartphones.

What if a criminal breaks the intrusion detection control panel?

Many alarm panels are built to be tamper-proof. Some security companies call this feature “Crash and Smash” protection. In the event that an intruder attempts to disable security by damaging the control panel, the control panel can be set to alert our monitoring center.

What happens if there is a false alarm?

Avoiding false alarms is important because alarms are noisy and false alarms often lead to fines. Penalties for false alarms vary by locale. In some cities the police and other emergency personnel charge hefty fines whenever they’re dispatched for a false alarm.

A couple of measures help protect against unneeded emergency response:
1. By law, an alarm company needs to give you 30 seconds to disable the alarm. To bypass the 30-second rule, you can add a panic button.
2. If an alarm is triggered, you’ll have the opportunity to tell the monitoring company that no service is needed through a in-built voice communication system.

At Interface, we offer a comprehensive video verified alarm solution to proactively detect false alarms and save you the hassles of relying on your staff to disable alarms or paying hefty false alarm fines.

How does Interface decide what type of alarm is needed for securing our locations?

Interface goes through a structured security assessment to understand the types of intrusion alarm sensors needed for every customer engagement. The security assessment includes a site survey and thorough evaluation of the facility, risks to be addressed, a review of past security breaches or intrusions, regulatory requirements for different locations, and future plans for expansion. Based on the security assessment results, Interface’s security consultants will provide a recommended design on the ideal intrusion detection platform needed based on unique customer requirements.

We have limited bandwidth or no connectivity at the locations where we want intrusion alarm installed

Interface can design an intrusion alarm solution that takes into consideration existing connectivity challenges. We offer alarm solutions that rely on LTE connectivity either as a backup or as a primary connection to completely bypass bandwidth availability issues. Interface has partnerships with leading wireless carriers in North America and can include bandwidth provisioning as a bundled solution.

How do you ensure that the alarm system is operational 24X7, throughout the year?

We design our intrusion alarm solutions with redundant communication paths that include wired connectivity and cellular backup, monitor the status of the alarm panel connection to our monitoring systems, with the capability to detect panel power outages. We work with our customers to develop robust processes to ensure that all alarm systems managed by our teams remain functional 24X7, 365 days a year.

We define standard operating procedures for all types of events- arming/disarming of alarms, actual alarm events, and responding to system health or outage notifications as part of our proactive support and maintenance programs.
