If your phone line provider is AT&T U-Verse or Charter Cable which are VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), they are not an approved means of communication! These Companies perform updates which interrupts your service for 5-10 minutes. Your alarm system has a built in phone line monitor to protect you from someone cutting your phone line. Call for programming changes.
I can’t arm my alarm and I have no trouble lights.
Check the status of your alarm, making sure all doors/windows are shut and no one is in motion.
If I lose electrical power will my alarm system still function?
Yes. In case of a power loss, the back-up battery will activate to maintain your alarm protection for several hours. In the event your battery is low, a low-battery signal will be sent to our local Central Station so you can be notified.
If I have an emergency should I call Alarm24 first?
No. If you have an emergency, call 911 first. If you are unable to call 911, then depress the panic button on your touchpad, and Alarm24 will request emergency services.
