Real Time Alerts
Look what happend on March 3rd 2012
Over 14,000 Tornado Real-Time Alerts Sent to 2GIG's Home Security Panels.
Most homeowners rely on security panels just to warn them of break-ins. However, last weekend, over 14,000 customers with Go!Control interactive service received real-time severe weather alerts issued by the National Weather Service about tornado activity. The warnings were delivered directly to the Go!Control panel, giving customers additional time to seek protection from dangerous weather conditions.
This new capability extends beyond traditional home break-in protection to alert people of external events that could put their families and belongings at risk. Many people are caught off-guard in severe weather situations because they are not listening to the radio or watching TV when a weather warning is issued. Nocturnal tornadoes are especially dangerous, because it is nearly impossible to see them approaching and many residents are asleep. Alarm.com's Severe Weather Alerts ensure that if a person is inside their home or business he or she will be forewarned when a tornado, severe weather, or fire is headed their way.
"It's impossible to say during last weekend's severe weather precisely how many homeowners benefited from our early warnings of impending storms," noted Lance Dean, co-founder of 2GIG Technologies, "However, we know our panels equipped with this service helped save lives and property. Every minute counts in a fast-moving weather emergency, so these alerts give families precious time to get everyone to the safest places within their homes or to a local emergency shelter."
These resulted in 550 confirmed fatalities and $28.7 billion in property damage. So far in 2012, the U.S. is experiencing many more tornadoes and severe storms than average. At highest risk are portions of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Arkansas, Iowa, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana, Pennsylvania, New York, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. Also at high risk are areas of these same states, plus parts of New Mexico, Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Louisiana, South Carolina, North Carolina, Ohio, Kentucky, and Michigan. The peak season does not typically happen until April or May for much of the Plains, Midwest, and Southeast.
"With our extensive national dealer network," says Dean, "2GIG can help homeowners get systems in place and hopefully help to save lives through this vital monitoring and alerting service."
