    Hardware And System Requirements

Starting a new Station

Patriot’s scalability helps keep set up costs to a minimum. Initially a Patriot monitoring station can be set up on a low cost peer to peer network system using windows workstations. Patriot will even run on a single stand-alone computer.

As your business expands, Patriot can be migrated to more powerful server based platforms while retaining the same software and operational systems. Patriot will meet your expectations whether you are monitoring 500 or 500,000 alarm clients and whether you have one operator or thirty. In fact, with Patriot’s messaging modules, you can set up a fully automated monitoring station with no operators at all.

Patriot is compatible with the widest range of alarm receivers; you can use whichever receivers best match your monitoring requirements. Patriot alarm monitoring software has been used in CMSs and alarm receiving centres internationally for over fourteen years and is compatible with all popular alarm formats. Whether you will be monitoring new or existing alarm clients, Patriot will meet all your current and ongoing monitoring needs.

Patriot can be configured with a wide range of optional modules. You need only purchase the modules that are relevant to your business. You keep setup costs to a minimum while offering a range of profitable services to your customers.

You can grow your monitoring business with confidence knowing that you will never have to change your alarm monitoring software or procedures. The Patriot support team will assist you in setting up your monitoring station and will provide ongoing technical assistance helping you meet the needs of a challenging and changing industry.

Best of all, Patriot’s competitive initial and innovative and efficient design features will help make your new business profitable from day one.


Patriot is often used when there is a single guard who is not in front of the monitoring workstation all the time. Patriot is able to message a cellphone on priority alarm and the user can acknowledge the alarm and response otherwise the notification can fallback to the operator or escalate to another guard. This allows guards to receive and acknowledge activations while doing patrols.

With Patriot, you’ll no longer have to worry about keeping your monitoring business running on out of date operating systems, databases and hardware.

Unlike many other alarm monitoring software packages, from inception, Patriot was designed for Windows. Patriot is built around a carefully designed and optimised SQL database. This means that it can meet the demands of monitoring stations large and small. The flexibility of Patriot means that it will provide the same facilities as your present software but now you’ll be able to offer your customers exciting, new and profitable services. You will be able to keep your existing alarm receivers and cater for all alarm panel formats you have in use.

Patriot’s technical team offers data conversion from most competing alarm monitoring software packages. We can help you to configure Patriot to your requirements and to receive your customer data while continuing to monitor with your existing software. This will ensure that you have a smooth and trouble free transition to Patriot and make the power, flexibility and simplicity of this modern software package work for you from day one.

If you want cutting edge technology, a reliable proven system and strong support options then you should move to Patriot software.
