SentryNet began it's life as Central Monitoring Service in 1987. Greenville, Mississippi was David Avritt's home and therefore the home of SentryNet. David began Central Monitoring Services 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 their 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.
SentryNet 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. SentryNet now boasts that they respond to over 70,000 customers for over 500 dealers across the United States. Their Staff is the best in the industry. They feature Digital Monitoring, VR1, which is their two-way program, NetConnect, which is their dealer access program and AlarmNet and UpLink services.
