End Users take charge with First Response

Patriot Monitoring Stations can send automatic alarm notifications directly to a Users phone. The alarm appears as a notification on their phone and shows the details of the event. Depending on the type of alarm and the configuration at the Patriot Monitoring station the User may

  • A. Receive a standard notification of the alarm with no response options, or,
  • B. Receive the notification and have options to ‘Cancel Alarm Response’ or ‘Request Operator Action’.

If the User selects ‘Cancel Alarm Response’ then the event will be automatically completed in Patriot at the Monitoring Station. This allows low priority events to be handled directly by the user without an operator being involved in the response.

Alarms that Users select to ‘Request Operator Action’ or that are not responded to within a specified time will appear in the Activation Queue for operators to respond to as a normal event.

  • Automate operator actions and reduce staff costs

  • Provide new services to customers and increase your customer base

Late to Close First Response

‘Late to Close’ alarms can be sent to a First Response User and these alarms allow for an additional option, to extend the scheduled closing time.

The User will receive an automatic notification about the Late to Close alarm on their phone. They can choose to ‘Cancel Alarm Response’ which will complete it back in Patriot at the station, ‘Request Operator Action’ or to ‘Extend the Scheduled Closing Time' if the User intends to be on site for a while longer.

  • Allows site Users and Managers to take control of Late to Close alarms

  • Avoid patrol call outs to arm sites

  • Allows the Monitoring Station operators to focus on responding to high priority events

Arming and Disarming Sites Remotely + Output Control

Allow Users to remotely arm & disarm their panels through the Plink App

If a User receives a Late to Close notification because someone had forgotten to set the alarm at their site then the User can arm the panel. If output controls are setup then they are also able to activate these through the Plink app to control lights, doors and other devices connected to the panels.

Arm, Disarm and output controls are accessible through the Plink app and work with Permaconn and T4000 / SkyCommand alarm panels and communicators

First Response with Text Message or Email

First Response notifications can also be received by and responded through Text Messages and Emails.

First Response notifications including Late to Close events can be sent by Text Message or Email to an End User or Bureau. You can send the notification through more than one option, e.g Plink APP and Text Message, to ensure the End User receives the alert as fast as possible.

Responding to an First Response Notification is as simple as sending back a "Y","N" or a number of hours to extend a schedule if the site is Late to Close.
