Your access control system will have alarms built into it, which help report when someone tries to access a space without permission once the alarm is activated. Monitor stations are the interfaces that allow you to get an overview of your entire space. They are computers that display all of the alarm monitoring stations defined in an access control system. When the alarm is not armed, you can simply check which spaces are locked using the station. Once you have armed your system, monitor stations work to show which parts of the space are armed, including whether the entire system, a few points, or just one alarm is ready to be triggered by unwanted intruders. In the event of a security breach, the monitor station is incredibly important because it allows you to see exactly which alarms have been triggered, meaning that you can send the proper authorities to that precise spot.
