False Alarm -  An emergency alarm, such as a fire or burglar alarm, which is set off unnecessarily and triggers an unnecessary response from local authorities.
Fire Alarm -  A signal transmitted by heat, fire or smoke detectors to the Central Station. Once the alarm is triggered, an audible alarm usually sounds and the Central Station is notified.
Flood Detector -  A device designed to detect the presence of water. Flood detectors are typically installed in basements, cellars, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and anywhere else where there’s potential for water damage.
Force Alarm -  To activate the intrusion detection system in spite of the presence of faulted zones. If a faulted zone is secured during the armed period, that zone is automatically armed by the security system.
