SE Security is able to provide you with Alarm Monitoring via a fully manned 24-Hour Grade 1A Central Monitoring Station, in accordance with Australian Standards 2201.
The Alarm Monitoring types are:
Dialler monitoring is the most basic and least secure of alarm monitoring methods. This is where the Alarm Panel has a built in Dialler, which is connected to a PSTN line. The way this works is, that when an alarm sensor is tripped into alarm, it will activate the dialler to dial out to the pre-programmed control room receiver number. Once the connection is made, the panel will transmit the alarms to the control room for action.
In the event that a detector is activated, the Alarm Panel Dialler will make a Dialler connection with the Central Monitoring Station, and send through the alarm activation and the detector zone number which will identify the detector location relative to the building.
The Securitel Network is a dedicated security network, which allows us to monitor alarms at high-risk premises. This type of monitoring uses a standard voice line to monitor both the alarm activity and line integrity. The line integrity is monitored via a polling signal sent down the line every 20-30 seconds to ensure that the Control Panel is on line.
GSM Mobile Network Monitoring
GSM Monitoring has been essentially used as a back up or secondary alarm reporting devices to Dialler or in instances or in locations where a PSTN Line (or a telephone line network) is not available. This type of monitoring utilizes the mobile telephone network to report any loss of Telephone line service and any subsequent alarms. The GSM Unit requires a SIM Card which is supplied by the client.
GSM offers a high level of security and reliability, as the alarm signals will still be sent through to the Central Monitoring Centre after a telephone line has been cut.
GPRS monitoring is largely seen as a replacement for the now defunct Securitel Network, as it offers the "Supervised Line" feature. GPRS Wireless essentially uses the Mobile Phone network as its operational platform. To place an existing Alarm Panel on the GPRS Wireless Network, a stand alone GPRS unit needs to be installed and interfaced to the Panel.
DUAL PATH IP/GPRS
This method of alarm monitoring uses IP (Internet Protocol) as the primary path of communication, the secondary path or back up is Wireless GPRS. The Alarm Panel communication passes through the Local Area Network (LAN) and out to the Control Room receiver via a VPN Secure connection. Should a fault develop with the internet service or the LAN, then the system will seamlessly switch over to the Wireless GPRS monitoring.
