Why is cellular better than IP/Wifi only system?
ThinkPro offer both cellular and IP only link to your home monitoring.  While IP systems is safe an effective, the industry and ThinkPro recommends that you go with a cellular plan as it gives 100% backup should an intruder break in – even if there is a power failure.

Do I need a camera?
Strictly speaking no, you do not need a camera.  And a camera by itself is not the same protection as 24/7 monitoring. However, the addition of a camera is excellent addition protection.  A doorbell camera allows you to see who is at the door – and see when you kids come home from school. An interior camera allows you to monitor your new pet.

Monitoring vs a camera?
24/7 monitoring is done by a central hub and is always on should an intruder break into you home.  A camera is always on, but you can only see someone breaking into your home, you don’t actually have a monitored security system.

What is 24/7 monitoring?
24/7 remote monitoring is the cornerstone of a professional security system.  Bascailly, when an intruder triggers an alarm, the signal goes to a central monitoring station that will send the appropriate help.  Typically, they will try and contact you and if they cannot get you, they will dispatch help.

Home security typically refers to a home alarm system that is monitored 24/7 by a remote monitoring station that pro-actively dispatches help when an alarm is triggered. A smart home system connects your home to a handheld devise and allows you to control various things in your house: door, thermostat, lights, etc.  smart systems like ThinkPro allow you to do both.  Learn more by clicking here.

Medical Alert Tracking FAQ’s

How does it work?
The monitor that is being worn allows a person to press a button and talk with a monitoring station to dispatch the help that they need.  And our systems detect if a fall has occurred so if someone you love is unconscious, help will be dispatched.
What happens when the button gets pressed?
The system automatically connects you with a monitoring station and the person can assess the situation and dispatch the appropriate help.
What happens when my parent falls?
The advanced technology that we use, detects a fall and if there is no response, the monitoring center will dispatch help and notify you that your loved one’s alarm has been triggered and help is on the way.
What to do when my batteries run out of power?
The system will alert you with a beep light and a low-pitch alarm will sound when the battery is dying.  When this occurs, please contact ThinkPro and we will dispatch a new battery.
