Sonitrol of Hawaii, a provider of verified electronic security to businesses, schools and homes throughout the Hawaiian Islands, announced the opening of a new central monitoring station located in Honolulu.

The central station is equipped with the SONIP monitoring platform, the latest generation in verified alarm monitoring platforms from Sonitrol that uses specialized client software to meet the monitoring, signal processing and automation needs of the Hawaiian electronic security market.

For Sonitrol of Hawaii customers, during an alarm activation, real-time, digital audio from the protected facility will be transmitted to the new central monitoring station in Honolulu. There, operators on-call 24 hours a day, trained to verify sounds that might indicate an intrusion or break-in event, listen and react to the information being provided. Simultaneously, each monitoring specialist is provided vital customer information through an advanced graphical user interface (GUI) to immediately alert the appropriate contact — and law enforcement, when necessary — of a potential intrusion. The combination of digital audio and an operator interface enables the operator to provide law enforcement with more precise information about an alarm event prior to arriving on the scene. In addition, all incoming alarm audio files can be easily stored, accessed and transmitted as needed for prosecution of apprehended suspects.
