Scope of the Report

Alarm monitoring is process of communicating quickly between security system and the central station of the security provider. It offers services in order to detect fire, burglar and residential alarm systems. Alarm monitoring system records an emergency event and accordingly sends signals to the central monitoring system. After receiving signals, the appropriate authorities are sent to the location for rescuing. This monitoring system uses radio channels, computer, telephones and trained staffs in order to monitor the security system of the customers and for reciprocating it accordingly to the authority people.
