Definitions Edit

An alarm is a

device or function that signals the existence of an abnormal condition by making an audible or visible discrete change, or both, so as to attract attention to that condition.[1]
[s]ystem consisting of a central controller connected to detection devices, audible warning devices, keypads and controls, power circuitry, and communication devices. Wireless technology has extended the connectivity of traditional hard-wired systems, and IP technology is rapidly changing and extending the description of what was previously a settled and slow-moving domain. A security alarm is typically positioned within the perimeter of physical security, behind the locking hardware.[2]
