Security system monitoring is an invaluable part of keeping your home, your family, and your belongings safe. Monitoring works by having a dedicated team or service continuously watch over your home’s security system, ready to respond to any alerts or emergencies that may arise.

How Does Home Security System Monitoring Work?

Here is a breakdown of how home security system monitoring typically works:

  • When something triggers one of your home’s security system sensors, such as a door opening or motion detected, the security system sends an alert to the control panel.
  • The control panel then communicates the alert to a monitoring center operated by your security provider. This communication can occur via a cellular network, internet connection, or landline connection, depending on the type of monitoring service you have.
  • Trained operators at the monitoring center will receive the alert and assess the situation. They may attempt to contact you to verify if it’s a false alarm or if you need assistance. If they can’t reach you, they will take the appropriate actions based on their observations.
  • If the situation warrants it, like in the case of a break-in or a fire, the monitoring center will dispatch the appropriate emergency services to your home. This may involve dispatching the police, fire department, or medical responders.
