The Concept of Monitoring
A security system (also referred to in the industry as an alarm panel) is installed in a building (residential or business). Upon a triggering event (like a break in or hold up), the panel seizes the phone line (some panels use internet, cellular, or radio transmissions) and calls the alarm company (also known as a dispatch center) or security office. The panel sends the raw alarm data over the phone line and is received and acknowledged by a hardware device called a receiver.
The receiver sends the raw alarm information to the Alarm Center Monitoring/Dispatch module where it is interpreted, processed and presented to a dispatcher for action. In the case of a break in or hold up, the dispatcher may attempt verification of the event by calling the premises (also known as a subscriber), dispatch the police depending on the procedures followed at the dispatch center or the instructions given by the resident or business. Dispatchers can also send medical help, fire personnel, service and maintenance personnel and can notify the subscriber's designated people on a call list (responsible parties) upon unauthorized entry into a building within a specified time frame (also known as time schedules or open/close times).
This is a brief primer on the concept of alarm monitoring. Alarm panels are used to monitor more things than the standard burglary and fire situations. Other monitoring uses are: video verification, temperature variances, barometric pressure changes, movement detection, gas detection, medical alert and more.
