Summary:
Home security monitoring does not mean that there will be 24 hour a day surveillance of your home to
ensure that your home is protected from a burglar. At least it does not mean that in a literal sense but home
security monitoring does provide you and your family 24 hour a day protection from burglars and in some
cases, even fire. The level of protection that you receive will depend on the complexity of your home
security system and the capabilities of the security provider you have chosen. The one thing in home
security monitoring that is relatively similar no matter which provider or system you choose is the sequence
of events that occur while the security system is in use. This article will provide a brief synopsis of how
home security monitoring works.

Home security monitoring does not mean that there will be 24 hour a day surveillance of your home to
ensure that your home is protected from a burglar. At least it does not mean that in a literal sense but home
security monitoring does provide you and your family 24 hour a day protection from burglars and in some
cases, even fire. The level of protection that you receive will depend on the complexity of your home
security system and the capabilities of the security provider you have chosen. The one thing in home
security monitoring that is relatively similar no matter which provider or system you choose is the sequence
of events that occur while the security system is in use. This article will provide a brief synopsis of how
home security monitoring works.


Just about every home security monitoring system is activated as the first step in the process. Usually the
homeowner pushes a button or series of buttons on the keypad to turn on the security system. This sends the
message that the security system should trigger if it is breached in any way. Once this happens the various
components of the home security system are activated. This may include access contacts, motion detectors,
security cameras and any other components of the home security monitoring system. These components
remain activated until the homeowner returns home and deactivates the home security monitoring system.
Again, this is usually accomplished by typing in a series of numbers in the keypad.


If there is a breach of security, the home security monitoring system will begin a sequence of events. In most
cases the first event, upon detecting an intruder, is to sound a warning alarm. This is usually a low level
alarm and the intent of sounding this alarm is to allow the home owner the opportunity to deactivate the
alarm when they return home. The homeowner usually has approximately 30 seconds to deactivate the alarm
before the home security alarm system takes the next step.


If the alarm is not deactivated two things happen simultaneously in the home security monitoring system. A
loud alarm is sounded and a message is sent to the monitoring station that there has been a breach of security
in the home security monitoring system. This message reaches personnel at a 24 hour per day monitoring
station who respond to this message. The first response is to contact the homeowner to determine whether or
not the home security monitoring system has been breached or it was a false alarm. If the homeowner does
not respond to the home security monitoring personnel and supply them with a security password, the staff
will contact the local police department and send them to your address.


Home security monitoring is a precise service that has a clear path of action. Most home security monitoring
companies react and proceed in a very similar fashion when a security system in their network is breached.
While each home security monitoring company may have differences they all generally work in the same
way.
