What is Alarm System Monitoring?
When an alarm system is connected to an alarm system monitoring service a signal is sent to the alarm monitoring company when a break-in, fire or other event triggers the alarm.
The alarm monitoring company will then notify the police, fire brigade or other appropriate authority or person.
Why Monitor an Alarm?
Alarm system monitoring has a number of benefits.
How Does Alarm Monitoring Work?
When an event such as a burglary or fire is triggered by your alarm system, signals are sent via phone line or wireless network from your alarm system control panel to the alarm monitoring company.
The alarm monitoring company will then quickly contact you, the police, fire brigade, ambulance or security guard, depending on the cause of the alarm and your particular monitoring plan.
