Installing & Activating an Alarm System

Check with your local jurisdiction to see if you are required to register your alarm system.

Understanding the System

When purchasing an alarm system you must remember that you are a vital part of the alarm function. You must completely understand how the system works, what it does and does not do, and what you must do to keep it in proper operating condition.


Ensure all users of your system are provided adequate and thorough instruction on using and testing the system. Ask your alarm company to provide you with written instructions as well as a physical demonstration.

Outside Alarms

Ensure outside audible alarms are set to sound for no more than 15 minutes before resetting.
