“How the system works?”
Equipment: Step 1: Choose your package.
NWOSS provides four packages which you can select from to customize your system. Once you choose your package, you can add additional devices to tailor your system for your house. All the packages include installation. To see a list of our packages and products please click on the link below.
Communication: Step 2: Choose how it will be monitored. (Hint: Cellular is best!)
We offer all standard monitoring methods, such as landline, internet and cellular. You can even choose more than one if you prefer. The communication method is important because this is the means by which your alarm signals from your panel are sent to our Central Station. Your system is only as good as your communication method, which is why we highly recommend cellular.
We offer the best price around for cellular monitoring. The number one reason to choose cellular is that if the criminal cuts your phone line your system will still function normally.
Alarm Procedure: Step 3: The Alarm process.
Once a device is tripped, the alarm is sent with the exact zone information into our Central Station (Lima, OH), (i.e., If the front door was broken into, the system will set off a siren and send a signal stating “Front Door Burglary”). NWOSS monitors will then follow the procedures as defined by you, and call either the person on the emergency response form, or the police, or both. If we can’t reach the person on your emergency response form, we will dispatch the police. If we connect with the designated person and they report it is a “false” alarm, we will not dispatch. The person that verifies the “false” alarm will also have to verify with our monitors your approved “code” word. If the code word isn’t verified we will dispatch the police. We will continually monitor the situation until the police arrive (in the event of a real alarm); and/or until the system gets restored back to normal and you are safe in your home.

Tips for Home Safety:
- Ask yourself: How would someone attempt to break into our home? Then perform an objective evaluation of all points of possible entry.

- Gain neighborhood awareness.
- Test your system weekly.
- Replace batteries on wireless devices as needed.
