A security system (also referred to in the industry as an alarm panel) is installed in a building (residential or business). Upon a triggering event (like a break in or hold up), the panel seizes the phone line (some panels use internet, cellular, or radio transmissions) and calls the monitoring station (also known as a central station) or security office. The panel sends data over the phone line and is received and acknowledged by a hardware device called a receiver. The "language" used by control panel to "talk" to the receiver is the communication protocol (format).
The receiver take the alarm information, processed and presented to a dispatcher for action. In the case of a break in or hold up, the dispatcher may attempt verification of the event by calling the premises (also known as a subscriber) or will dispatch the police depending on the procedures followed at the central station or the instructions given by the resident or business. Dispatchers can also send medical help, fire personnel, service and maintenance personnel and can notify the subscriber's designated people on a call list (responsible parties) upon unauthorized entry into a building. The control panel can also transmit every time when the system is armed or disarmed,  within a specified time frame (also known as time schedules or open/close times). Other monitoring uses are:  video verification, temperature variances, barometric pressure changes, movement detection, gas detection, medical alert and many more.
