Central Station Monitoring

Central Station Monitoring is an essential part of any security system. 24/7 monitoring of your intrusion alarm ensures that somebody is looking out for your property at all times and is ready to take action in case of an alarm.



How it Works


When your alarm is tripped, a detailed report is sent to monitoring where a trained operator will take on the incoming alarm and notify the proper authorities as well as an emergency contact listed with your account.

How the Signal is Sent


Alarm signals are transmitted to Central Monitoring with a variety of methods. Whether it's Internet Communicators, Copper Phone Lines, AES Mesh Radio Network, or Cellular Radio Communicators, there is a method that works best at your property.




Benefits

  • Peace of mind that your company is being monitored even when nobody is on site

  • Quicker response time

  • Authorities are notified even when employees on-site are unable to call 911




How Monitoring Stations are Regulated


Since monitoring is such an important part of the alarm process, Central Stations are closely regulated by third party companies, such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL) which regulates the monitoring station used by Fairview Protection. These companies evaluate monitoring stations and ensure they uphold both national and local codes and standards.
