How Alarm.com and GEOARM alarm monitoring services work.
Alarm.com alarm monitoring is defined by GEOARM Security, as a communication between your existing security system, any smart phone/device and our central station.
Your 2GIG or GE control panel is the “brains” of a network of detectors/sensors, which may include window or door sensors, motion detectors, and/or temperature, flood, and smoke detectors. When your system is armed and any of these detectors/sensors are triggered, an emergency signal is sent to the GEOARM Alarm.com compatible alarm monitoring station via the wireless cellular towers.
The initial signal sent by your Alarm.com compatible control panel will alert monitoring personnel at the GEOARM central station, who will call to notify you and confirm whether it’s a real emergency or a false alarm. If you don’t respond, then GEOARM will contact the proper agency (police, fire, or EMS) to dispatch emergency personnel to your address.
Critical information is sent by your Alarm.com home security system to the GEOARM alarm monitoring center, including account identification (to access your address and contact information) and the type of sensor that has been triggered. For example, a smoke detector event will cause the alarm monitoring service to contact the fire department, while the signal from a medical alert pendant will be routed to ambulance or paramedic services.
