An Area (also known as a partition) is a term used to define a section or separation in a building or property. Different alarm systems have different numbers of Areas that can be configured. 

If your alarm system supports multiple areas, a technician can set various parts of a building or property to individual areas. 

For example, if a home has a separate cottage that is separate from the main house, the main house would be set up as the first area and the cottage as a second area. This example can be seen in the Home screen of the security app below. 

Each area can be armed or disarmed individually and have different zones linked to them. To learn how to arm and disarm an area from the security app, click here.
