Accessing Virtual Operator

From the viewpoint of the Technician (whether they are from your Company or one of your Alarm Dealer's Technicians for whom you provide monitoring services), accessing the Virtual Operator module's features is as easy as dialing in on the assigned telephone number from a cell phone or land line.

Generally speaking, the Technician is guided through the process by listening to voice prompts, and then responding (digitally) to them - in much the same manner as you would when calling a company with an automated voice attendant.

Here is the process that you will follow to use the Virtual Operator module's features:

Welcome Message - Notifies you that you are connected.

Be sure to wait for the full message and "Choices" voice prompt before making the desired selection.

Login - When prompted, Login to the Virtual Operator module using the information entered in the Employees Form's Security tab.
