External Alarm Interface IEPD 3.0

Web Site Link: http://niem.gtri.gatech.edu/niemtools/iepdt/display/container.iepd?ref=Ow8gz1Pl7b4%3D

The purpose of the External Alarm Interface 3.0 documentation is to provide a standard data exchange for electronically transmitting information between an Alarm Monitoring Company and a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). There are three primary uses for this IEPD: Initial notification of an alarm event; Bi-directional update of status between an alarm monitoring company and the PSAP; and Bi-directional update of other events between an alarm monitoring company and a PSAP. This exchange eliminates the need for a PSAP to rekey information already captured via a system in the alarm monitoring station. (This IEPD is endorsed by the Central Station Alarm Association as the standard for data exchange between alarm monitoring stations and PSAPs.)
