Overview

Alarm Report
While we hope that you never have to manage an alarm but the reality is that at times it may become necessary to review alarm history. These reports can help quickly identify problems or possible intrusion.

The Report

The Alarm Report is an important tool for security staff and building managers. This report can be used to ensure that proper procedures are followed as well as help keep the facility safe and secure. Alarms are often the first sign of unauthorized access and can also be used to help identify probing activities into a building. We don't want to paint a bleak picture here, but criminals and hackers may be trying to determine the best time to strike, right now. Often people pose as delivery people or visitors and attempt to check for unsecured methods of entry.  We recommend that you monitor the Alarm Report every so often to look for patterns. For example,  That UPS driver that visits every so often, coincidentally, the same time as an IT room alarm, might not be who he says he is. Unfortunately, physical breaches in security can cost companies big. There has been a rise in corporate espionage and often it begins with a physical breach.
