SentryNet began it’s life as Central Monitoring Service in 1987 in Greenville, Mississippi. Our Central Monitoring Services began with one goal in mind, to become the best in the industry. The name SentryNet was chosen as the industry grew and dealers began to have need for more than just monitoring. SentryNet began to offer answering services and business consulting to aid dealers in more effectively serving their customers.As the industry expanded so did SentryNet, so much so that more room was needed to handle the workload. SentryNet announced the grand opening of their second central station in Pensacola, Florida on April 1, 1997. With the second station SentryNet was able to offer premier service to its dealers. No longer just hot redundant computers, but now our stations are able to provide back-up for one another. Should either station be involved in a disaster all telephone lines and data are transferred to the other in moments.In April of 2012, SentryNet moved from it’s Greenville Central Monitoring Station to a new state-of-the-art Memphis, Tennessee Facility. No expense was spared in building the new state-of-the-art UL Memphis central station for our customers. 2012 also marks SentryNet’s 25th year serving independent security dealers.SentryNet & Security Solutions provides our customers with a live central station around the clock. To top that off both stations are UL/FM certified and have the required generators to keep all the computers up and running in the event of power loss. All SentryNet operators are SIA certified. We feature Digital Monitoring, IP Monitoring, Video Monitoring and Two-Way Voice Monitoring. We also offer Cellular & Radio Back-up.
All SentryNet Operators are SIA Certified.SentryNet operators are required to pass the SIA Central Station Operators Course. This course is the first of its kind in the Security Industry.
