24-Hour Monitoring

Baldino’s provides 24 hours a day monitoring services.

The New Way, Cellular Monitoring

Cellular security systems are 100% wireless cellular uplink instead of a landline or a broadband Internet connection. Cellular monitoring is fast and has no wires to cut.

2-Way Voice and Video Recording

Usually a common add-on feature, 2-way Voice, a built in microphone and speaker allows you to speak directly to a monitoring center representative through your control panel. If there's an emergency and your hands are full or you can't get to your control panel, you can talk to a representative from up to 50 feet away.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

These sensors detect this toxic gas that you cannot otherwise see, smell, or taste. If your home reaches dangerous levels of carbon monoxide, this sensor will warn you so you can get your family to safety.

DIY Installation

DIY installation means that you set up your security equipment yourself, without an installer, though some security companies will walk you through the process over the phone. These are usually wireless systems.
