Web Dealer Access - Subscriber Information - Panels tab - Areas option


Understanding the Areas feature:

When a Subscriber's premises has an Alarm System installed in such a way as to be able to sub-divide sections of that premises into separate Areas (often referred to as Partitions).

These sub-divided sections allow each such division to be identified as a separate, unique, supervised Area.

The result is that each of these individual sections (Areas) may then be monitored as separate "systems" within the Alarm System as a whole.


Areas are used to accommodate this need and are implemented as follows:

a)Area(s) are defined for a specific CSID

b)Areas are often referred to as Partitions

c)Areas do not represent the Subscriber's premises as a whole, but instead represent a specifically sub-divided section (i.e. Partition) of that Subscriber's premises.

d)Each Area may therefore be monitored individually, Armed and Disarmed individually, and have Opening, Closing, and Other types Events Supervised individually, as well as Test Events.
