VMedia offers an optional private security guard add-on, with all plans, in order to help you avoid costly false alarm charges. With this, when an alarm is triggered, a security guard is dispatched to your residence, instead of local emergency services. The security guard will investigate sign of unwanted intruders and ensure your home and family are safe and protected. If an intruder or break-in is detected, the security guard will inform local authorities. The security guard service will help prevent expensive false alarm charges, which can range from $75 to $250, depending on your municipality.
