  • 95% of most burglar alarms are monitored by a 24 hr central station. The central stations monitor burglar alarms, fire alarms (including carbon monoxide, smoke detectors, sprinkler alarm systems, fire pumps, halon, kitchen ansul systems) water detection, medical emergencies (i.e.: panic buttons, senior citizen medical buttons, police panic buttons)
  • Monitoring stations are in service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The higher end central stations are U.L. Certified and are designed to handle tens of thousands of accounts at single location. Most large central stations also have “redundant” monitoring. This means that the phone lines can be “routed” to an off site location, in case of a disaster at the main central station (i.e.: earthquake, flooding, etc).
  • Most alarms transmit signal through the “digital dialer” that are connected through phone lines. Currently, systems are being designed and installed that can also transmit information thru an “IP” module connected to the main alarm circuit board. In this version, there are no telephone lines costs to the client, and the alarm can be “connected” thru the client’s Internet connection/port.
  • Monitoring stations not only monitor burglar and fire alarms, but also monitor power failures, low back up battery signals, signals when the client turns on and off the burglar alarm system, and even phone line failures (when phone lines go down due to someone cutting the phone lines, or local phone company line failures)
  • The clients are notified by the central station when an alarm signal comes in. The police or fire departments are also notified. The client can also “cancel” the dispatch if the alarm is due to a client error.
