Subscriber Panels section - Areas Form

 

Areas are defined when a Subscriber's Alarm System is divided into separate Areas - sometimes called Partitions - and each of these Areas can be Armed and Disarmed individually, and therefore Supervised individually, and/or protected and violated individually as well.

For systems with multiple Areas (or Partitions), when separately Supervised Events are desired for a specific Area, that Area must be designated in the Area/Partition field on the Events Form.

These same systems with Areas are likewise protected separately, and so can have Alarm Signals reported by Area.

If separate Areas are defined for the Subscriber whose Alarm Signal is being displayed on the Signal Processing Form, the Areas tab will be available for selection.

Click the Areas tab, or Press Alt+A to display the Areas information for the current Subscriber.

3.Status - This field is automatically updated each time a supervised event is reported.

4.Last Update - The date and time are automatically updated each time a supervised event is reported.
