▼ How Central Station Alarm Monitoring Works? ▼



Step 1: Arm the Security System

Too many people forget to arm their security system every time they leave the house. As a security system user, your only responsibility is to set the alarm. GeoArm offers a wide range of wireless keypads and keyfobs which make this step as easy as possible.





Step 2: Alarm Initiating Event Occurs

One of your security devices is triggered by an alarm initiating event. Next, the device that was activated sends a signal back to your security system control panel which then sounds a local siren. With our professional alarm monitoring services, the activated control panel goes into alarm protocol and will call the GeoArm central station via; traditional phone line, voip, wifi, broadband internet, cellular, or dual-path communication network(s).






Step 3: Alarm Signal is Received

Upon receiving your alarm signal, our operators are trained to follow dispatch protocol and respond to your specific situation. If a medical, fire, or panic signal is received, the operator immediately calls the proper emergency response. If a burglary signal is received, the operator responds based on the submitted call verification phone numbers.






Step 4: Call Verification Begins

In order to reduce the chance of false alarms, our central station operators will call up to two different phone numbers in an attempt to verify that a real alarm has occurred. If there is no answer at either number, or if a wrong false alarm password is given, the operator will then dispatch the police. This call verification process effectively eliminates over 75% of all false alarm dispatches and is now required by most states and local municipalities.

"Who wants to be locked into a 3 year contract? After researching their competition, it's clear GeoArm is one of the best DIY alarm companies around. Unlike my previous alarm company, GeoArm did not require me to sign up for the long term contract. I save hundreds of dollars each year and have the peace of mind knowing that I am not locked into a contract."

Jimmy in Los Angeles, CA



"The initial experience with GeoArm is among the best that I have had. I received a callback promptly after calling their toll-free number. Communication was consistently outstanding, with timely e-mails and phone calls. Their technician Ralph possessed an in-depth knowledge of security hardware and internet connectivity. In this age of internet anonymity, it is refreshing to receive a customer-first approach to product delivery, service, and support."

Cheryl in Hartford, CT



"Yes, I am a IT guy and a DIYer. Reading a technical manual is a walk in the park for me, however, the hardwired alarm products (Vista 20p, Tuxedo Touch, KeyFob, etc) can become confusing even for me. You really need the expertise of GeoArm. Once you are done with the wiring and have installed the cellular communicator, Joe helped me with all the rest. Their website is SUPERB and has all the information to make the setup easy."

Eric in Allentown, PA



"I contacted GeoArm for help in programming my Honeywell L5200 to recognize my hard wired external siren. I spoke with Drew who was more than helpful in solving my issue and walked me through the steps to program my control panel. He is quite knowledgeable and patient and solved my problem in a matter of minutes. Also, the videos online are very helpful too for the DIY'ers like me. Their customer service gets 5-Stars!"

Victor in Phoenix, AZ



"I want to thank GeoArm and Joe for the quick and painless setup of alarm monitoring at my new home. It is a very complex system (Vista 21iP) which Joe got communicating in less than 30 minutes. He offered tips on ease of use and fixed my configuration (zone wiring) where I messed up. He walked me through Total Connect and explained in detail all the creature features. It was very refreshing talking to someone who cared as much about my setup as me. I look forward to a long relationship with GeoArm."

Robert in Bakersfield, CA



"If you've done any serious researching on doing a DIY alarm system, you have to look at these guys at GeoArm who have built their business for the DIYer. I used to work in the security industry and I fully appreciate the technical expertise offered through the videos and through their safe ordering process to get their alarm monitoring service. In case you just started researching, save yourself a lot of time and choose GeoArm."
