Essentially, the control panel is the brain of your security system. The control panel receives information from the various detection points on your premises and sends it to the monitoring station generally by using your regular telephone line.
Because the control panel recognizes every piece of detection equipment as a distinct element, it is able to transmit the precise location and nature of the alarm (living room window, garage door, movement in the basement, medical emergency, etc.) to the monitoring station. The control panel also activates an auditory alarm if necessary.

3 - Peripheral Detection
This form of detection protects potential entry points of your residence such as doors and windows. A security perimeter is established by installing various types of detection equipment that will sound an alarm if a door or window is opened or broken while the security system is active.
4 - Motion Detector
This type of detection technology protects the interior of a residence. It is implemented through the installation of motion detectors at strategic locations and triggers an alarm when motion is detected inside a protected zone while the security system is operational.
Note that special motion detectors are also adapted for house pets. Your cat or your little dog can walk around in the house without causing a false alarm.
5 - Panic Button
A Panic button is a control device (usually in the form of a button or a key) that allows you to instantly activate the alarm system. This type of device is used to quickly communicate with the monitoring station in case of a fire, medical emergency or a break-in attempt while you are at home.

7 - Audible/Visual Sirens
A siren is a device that is installed in a building to locally indicate that the security system has detected an emergency situation. It can take the form of an audible and/or visual siren. The audible siren is intended to frighten intruders and notify you and your neighbours that the alarm system has been activated. In the case of fire, the audible siren will alert you and your neighbours to the impending danger. A visual siren enables guards, police officers and fire fighters to immediately identify a trouble spot. Generally, visual and audible sirens are used in combination.
8 - TEF LINK Deterrence Stickers For Your Windows
