What is Professional Monitoring and why is it needed?
Professional Monitoring takes “self-monitoring” to the next level. If there’s ever any suspicious behavior, home break-ins and burglaries, and you’re away from your home or your phone, we’ve got you covered. Our certified Professional Monitoring experts will monitor alerts 24/7 and dispatch first responders for you in case you're busy or you simply miss your phone alerts.
If a Person is detected in Away mode, and you’re unable to respond to Canary’s initial notification, the event will be escalated to our Professional Monitoring experts, who will assess the situation and escalate to emergency responders if needed.

What are the benefits of having video verified dispatch?
- First responders are able to give higher priority to your alarm, resulting in a faster response time
- Reduces false alarms
Over 98% of alarms are false. Therefore, it’s difficult for first responders to confirm whether an emergency is real or not. With Professional Monitoring’s intelligent video verification as evidence, first responders can treat your alarm with the highest priority, resulting in a faster response time.
