Suspicious Activity Detected
With sensors and detectors placed all over your house, covering windows, doors, driveways etc, if there is any suspicious or unusual activity or an attempt to break in, it will be picked up as soon as it happens.
[Motion sensors, door/window alarms, safe alarms, temperature alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, smoke detectors etc are all type of sensors you are advised to have in your home security arsenal.]
The alarm is triggered in case of a break in, fire, gas leak or any environmental emergency. Once the sensors in your house detects such activities, they send a signal to the main alarm panel, triggering it into action
Alarm Company Notified
Your alarm company’s monitoring station will be notified and a dispatcher will be alerted of a potential emergency on your property.
Dispatcher Contacts the Homeowner
The purpose of this step is to determine whether the alarm was triggered due to an actual emergency or was it a false alarm. Depending on your service, the dispatcher might contact you through the control panel or via your home phone
If it was a false alarm, the dispatcher will cancel the alarm and will not alert the local authorities. If the dispatcher can somehow not get in touch with you, it will be assumed that there is an emergency
Notifying Emergency Services
If the emergency is established, the dispatcher will contact the local authorities depending on the nature of the emergency. The police, fire or other emergency departments are typically contacted to deal with the matter at hand.
Once the emergency response teams have been dispatched, you can breathe a sigh of relief; help is on its way.
Reset the System
When the situation is under control, be sure to set the alarm system back on
