Central station monitoring is a mission-critical service, helping businesses across industries maintain expensive equipment and respond to critical events such as power failure, suboptimal system performance, security breaches, and fire protection system actuation. Central monitoring stations leverage automation software, redundant technology, and trained operators to communicate with businesses and emergency services when an alarm signal is received.
Speed and reliability are critical to getting the help you need in an emergency. Impact Fire offers around-the-clock central station monitoring for your fire and security systems, ensuring rapid first responder deployment when you need it most.
Our UL-listed central station facilities are staffed with highly-trained operators. When your system activates, they will provide emergency personnel with your location, building layout, and any additional relevant information they need for a fast and effective response. We provide central station monitoring services utilizing standard phone lines (POTS Lines), internet protocol (IP), and cellular transmission.

Central Station Monitoring FAQ
Central station redundancy refers to the duplication of critical systems such as power sources and communication paths. Redundancy ensures if critical systems fail, there is a secondary or tertiary system in place.
At Impact Fire, we’ve designed two redundant central stations to provide continuous, seamless, and enhanced monitoring. If a station is experiencing a problem, customers can switch to another one seamlessly without any service disruption.
