Connected to you 24/7/365.
A control panel, the “brains” of the system, is installed inside your building along with keypads near outside entrances or other doorways. Devices are mounted to secure doors, windows, and interior “space” that an intruder could enter. The system can be either hardwired or wireless.
If you have monitoring and the system is “armed,” it will send a signal to your central monitoring station if a device has been breached. For example, if a window or door was opened (breaking the field) or a motion was activiated or a glass break detecter was set off, the monitoring station receives a signal. The central monitoring station will immediately contact the first number on your call list for verification. If no one answers, the monitoring service will dispatch the local authorities. If someone does answer and gives the monitoring service the wrong password, the local authorities will be dispatched. If a smoke alarm was set off, our monitoring station immediately contacts the fire department.
When monitored, an Atronic Alarms fire system is always “on,” even when your security system is turned off.
