Frequently Asked Questions
We are here to help.
What is a Monitored Security System?
A monitored security system uses sensors and control electronics at your home or business to automatically communicate alarm events to a central monitoring facility (Monitoring Center). The Monitoring Center automatically receives coded information from your system which is recorded in our computer systems and analyzed by trained ambassadors who call police, fire, and medical authorities to respond to the situation.
Is a Security System expensive?
The cost of a security system depends upon your individual needs. Our sales representatives are trained to work with you in identifying the most cost-effective system to meet your needs.
What if I don't have a Landline Phone?
How do I know if my System is monitored?
Can I set my alarm with a pet left inside?
Yes! SEi offers the choice in motion detectors that can be immune to pet movement.
Is the SEi Monitoring Center UL Listed?
Yes, the SEi Monitoring Center has been UL listed for over 25 years. Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is the leader in the certification and listing of Monitoring Centers. In order to receive UL listing, Monitoring Centers must meet demanding requirements for architectural and physical security features as well as emergency power, computer hardware and software and operator training. Many insurance companies require alarm monitoring to be performed by a UL listed Monitoring Center in order to qualify for significant premium discounts.
Are there insurance discounts when you have a Security System?
Most insurance companies give significant discounts to alarm owners. Call your agent for more information.
Does SEi record my telephone calls to the Customer Care Center?
Yes, SEi records telephone calls between our Customer Care Center Ambassadors, customer service representatives, customers and authorities in order to ensure the consistency and quality of our services.
What happens if my phone lines are cut?
A basic security system will not be able to communicate with the Customer Care Center but it will sound the siren on the premises. Your SEi sales representative can show you wireless backup options that will overcome phone line problems.
What happen to my security system when power fails?
All SEi security systems have a backup battery that should run your security system for several hours in case commercial power fails. If you choose, we can configure your system to automatically send a Power Fail signal to our Customer Care Center which will be recorded in your alarm history. Additionally, we can notify you when this happens. This is especially useful if you have a large food freezer, medical equipment or special pets (tropical birds, fish, etc.).
Will the fire department always be notified if my fire alarm is triggered?
Residential: We will make one phone call on your call list. If we are unable to reach someone on the first call we will dispatch the fire department. After dispatch, we will then work down the call list to try to reach someone.
Commercial: National Fire Code requires immediate dispatch on commercial fire alarms. We will dispatch the fire department immediately, then work down the contact list to try to reach someone.
If my alarm isn't armed, are fire and carbon monoxide still monitored?
Yes. SEi’s Monitoring Center will receive fire and carbon monoxide alarms even if your alarm keypad is not armed. These are 24/7 monitored sensors.

Be aware you will need to provide your false alarm password to change your contact list. Your contact list (and the order of it) is important and needs to be kept updated. In the event of an emergency, your contact list determines who we will contact for further instructions about your system.
