Automation software is a package of programs that handles events reported by a receiver and then displays them to easily monitor them from a central observation station. For the purposes of office security, automation software of this kind allows system administrators to easily note, acknowledge, and respond to events of all sizes, from false acceptance or rejection at a certain point to triggered alarms after attempted unauthorized access. A full automation package for a central station typically boasts many more features than just these basics, including extras like call lists and passcodes.
When dealing with receivers within your network, automation software consists of multiple programs that accept all kinds of events from your system’s hardware and then reports and logs each of them for a user to respond to. This response can take multiple forms, from simply noting a certain event to even acknowledging an alarm. Automation software makes all of this much easier, keeping your facility safer and more secure.
