How much does it cost to activate an existing alarm system I have in my home / business?

How do I test my alarm?

Regular testing of your security system is the best way to maintain confidence and peace of mind. Call our office at 1-800-562-2996 and ask an operator to put your system on test. You will be asked to provide your security password. You may then send a signal and we can check to make sure it was received.

My system shows low battery, how do I replace it?

If you hear a beeping sound accompanied by “Bat” in the keypad window, your system needs a new battery. Press any digit to silence it, or enter your code normally used to turn off the system when you are coming home. You can avoid a service call and change the battery yourself if you can get to the metal box and open the cabinet. There is a red cable and a black cable that unplugs from the battery. The exact replacement you can pick up from our office that has the red and black terminals marked. Since it is only 12 volts, there is no danger of electric shock by touching the terminals or handling the wire. However, the red wire must connect to the red marked terminal or the panel could be damaged. The new battery should last from four to seven years.

How can I know if the system at my business was armed / disarmed?

We offer business owners great tools to help manage their business. Opening and Closing Reports with a convenience of notifying the owner via text message can be added to any system. These reports allow owners to ensure that the system has been timely disarmed or armed at all or if a zone was bypassed. For a modest charge you can add this security measure to your system. Call us at 1-800-562-2996.

How do I set a chime feature on my alarm system?
