Specially designed for security companies that provide central monitoring services, this system is able to handle small applications for monitoring as low as 200 sites to large applications spanning over 30,000.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
Central station monitoring (CMS) services are used by many security system owners who require high security monitoring. It is suitable for both residential and industrial sites. The CMS system consists of two main components – signal receivers to convert all alarm signals into raw protocol codes and central station software that allow operators to view, manage and catalogue incoming alarm signals from a massive number of alarm panels.
HOW IT WORKS
The Central Stations are equipped with both receivers and Central Station software. Central Station receivers differ based on the type of communication channels they monitor – telephone communication requires telephone line receivers while Internet communication requires Internet Protocol (IP) receivers. These receivers listen to the communication channels, and then convert the transmission signals into alarm signal codes, which are sent to the central station software. These alarm signal codes are displayed for CMS operators to view, manage and report according to specific procedures developed by CMS services.
