Alarm monitoring means your home security system will communicate with a central station by sending a signal to a monitoring station. Your security system can also send notifications to your smart phone or tablet. Your home security system will have a number of sensors such as window sensors, door sensors, motion detectors, smoke detectors and so on. When any of these sensors are activated, your security system will send a signal to the monitoring station. This signal can be sent via phone lines or some wireless network. When the monitoring station receives a notification that something has happened they will first contact you to establish whether it’s a false alarm or a possible event that requires response. Should the security official decide response is required, he or she will despatch armed response or notify the relevant authorities.
Your security system will be setup to send detailed information to the monitoring station such as your account details and what kind of sensor was activated. This enables the security company to immediately establish your address and notify the appropriate authorities such as the police, ambulance services or fire brigade.
Alarm monitoring enables rapid response which can make the difference between a good outcome or a bad outcome. Often an emergency will be more than what you can deal with and you will need help and you will need it fast. Alarm monitoring will get emergency services to you as quickly as possible.
