When a secure zone is broken, security systems are designed to undertake specific duties. The sort of security system you have determines what happens in the case of an incursion.
Security Systems That Are Professionally Monitored: Whenever your security system is professionally monitored by an alarm provider, they will be notified if a security issue emerges in your home. The monitoring provider is also notified, in addition to the high-decibel alarm. If the control panel is set up for 2-Way Voice communication, a certified security expert may attempt to connect with the homeowner via the control panel, or phone the emergency contact number given on the account.
The monitoring firm can connect with these security systems in a variety of ways, including:
- When a battery backup is used, existing house phone lines continue to work during power outages.
- Wirelessly using cellular radio frequencies, similar to those used by cell phones, which also work during power outages when a battery backup is used.
- Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a type of communication that does not work in the event of a power loss.
- Through the Internet, which is normally unavailable during a power outage.
