Alarm monitoring on the Galaxy

Alarm monitoring on the Galaxy is designed to be used either remotely, receiving signals from remote Galaxy sites via a telecom, ISDN or ethernet module, or on-site receiving signals directly from an RS232 interface. The encrypted alarm transmissions are captured by the Alarm monitoring software and presented to the operator in a precise and detailed manner. The operator is prompted to acknowledge each alarm before taking appropriate action. The activity of each alarm is recorded and time-stamped. Alarm monitoring also allows authorised users to connect directly to the panel via the Galaxy Gold mimic function.
