Every property needs to be protected from fire, which is why having a professionally installed fire alarm system is critical. But a fire alarm system can’t offer any protection if no one is there to react when an alarm is triggered.
At Protect 1 Security we provide 24/7 fire alarm monitoring service for homeowners and businesses throughout the Austin, TX area. We serve as the direct connection between your home or building’s fire alarm system and your local fire and EMS departments. We combine uninterrupted monitoring with remote system tests and coded alerts to ensure consistent, accurate emergency response.
Fire hazards never sleep, so we are there around the clock to protect you. When there’s any detection of danger from fire or smoke in your home, office building or industrial facility, the sensors connected to your alarm panel send a signal to Protect 1 Security’s monitoring center. We will alert local fire department and emergency personnel within seconds, so they can be dispatched immediately. Our monitoring center’s response time is typically within seconds, to ensure that the authorities reach your home or place of business within minutes. With fire alarm monitoring services from Protect 1 Security, your control panel will also alert us if there is a technical problem or malfunction with your system, so that our technicians can repair your system as quickly as possible.

We offer approved Internet-based IP fire alarm system monitoring for Austin, TX homes and businesses. Landline monitoring systems are becoming a thing of the past, as most systems have gone wireless, and for good reason.

Multiple independent transmission paths provide full signal redundancy. Our IP monitoring system is reliable, fast, and has a lower cost to maintain, saving you money.
When your fire alarm is triggered, coded responses inform our monitoring team whether the alarm has been set off due to temperature, smoke detection, chemical fumes, or any other reason. That specific data is then relayed to local emergency personnel, so they can respond appropriately to the situation.
We regularly monitor your alarm system for trouble conditions so that we can notify you accordingly whenever there is an issue. And if your system does not check in with us during a routine test transmission, we will promptly contact you to schedule a service appointment. Protect 1 Security maintains records of all signals received, and our state-of-the-art systems are regularly tested, inspected and maintained by qualified fire protection professionals.
