Monitored Security System - Alarm signals are transmitted to a Central Station so that appropriate authorities are notified. Monitored security systems are eligible for a homeowner's insurance discount because insurance companies know that homes protected by a monitored security system are backed up by a live central monitoring station 24/7.
Monitored Smoke Detectors - Smoke detectors directly connected to a security system so that not only will they wake up any sleeping in the location, they will also alert a UL listed central station of a potential fire. If you would like to protect your property as well as your life it is important to have monitored smoke detectors and not just local battery operated smoke detectors.
Monitoring Center - See Central Station.
Motion Detector - An alarm device that uses passive infrared or microwave detection to detect motion in an alarmed premise. Some motion detectors are even more advanced utilizing dual technology detection or pet immunity.
