The devices will be integrated into the console, the brain of the system that actually communicates or translates the communications that is linked to the MiGuard mobile application, MiGuard website, and MiGuard telecommunications network. From the console, it goes to homes where devices are monitored by the 24/7 Command Center that bridges calls to the first responder.
