Alarm Monitoring Module

An alarm monitoring module is an application that displays incoming alarms and events as they occur. Your access control system allows you to place alarms at any key point in your facility, whether you want to protect a secured office, keep the front doors securely locked or allow elevator use only to trusted employees. In the event of a breach, alarms will pick up exactly what the problem is. But to see exactly what and where the problem is happening, you’ll need to visit your alarm monitoring module.


This can be either an app on your phone or even on a desktop computer. From there, you’ll be able to respond to an alarm, alert the necessary authorities and even reset the system after you’re done investigating. Modules don’t have to be bulky, physical stations anymore; the power of modern technology allows you to check in on your facility from anywhere, making your office safer and more secure.
