A way of separating the different components of your security system into groups (motion sensor, door sensor, etc.) that are attached to your alarm panel. For example, if your front door were attached to zone 1 every time it opened the “zone 1” light on the keypad will light up. Then, if your alarm is set off by “zone 1”, the central station will know it was the front door that caused the alarm. Different alarm panels can accommodate different numbers of zones.
