Alarm System


Q. Do I still need my landline?

A: Not anymore! We can install a wireless transmitter on your existing system, eliminating the need for a costly land line phone. It’s also safer because a burglar can defeat most systems by simply cutting the phone line on the side of your home. Save money and increase your safety. Go wireless!


Q. Is my alarm system compatible with your system?

A: Most ADT, DSC, and Honeywell systems are compatible with us. If your system isn’t compatible it’s normally very affordable to convert it. Give us a call to verify, it only takes a few minutes of your time.


Q. What happens when my alarm goes off?

A: A dispatcher immediately calls you on any number you would like us to call. If we don’t receive an answer, the police or fire department are dispatched to your home. If we do receive an answer we verify your password, and at that point you can decide if you want us to dispatch or not. We never charge for false alarms.


Q. Do I get a homeowners insurance discount?

A: Yes! We are fully licensed and approved by all major insurance companies.


Q. Do I get a discount for prepaying?

A: Yes! Many of our customers choose the option of prepaying 11 months and getting the 12th month free! If you discontinue service, any unused portion will be refunded


Q. Do I get credit for referring a customer to you?

A: Yes! Each time you refer a friend or family member, and they sign up for our service, you get one month of service free.


Q. Can I still have my system monitored through the phone line if I choose?

A: Yes, you can as long as you have a regular analog phone line (not an internet or digital based phone line). Just remember, a phone line monitored system can be easily defeated by cutting the line on the side of your house. It’s most efficient to go wireless.


Q. Do I need an alarm permit?

A: Yes, most cities and towns have ordinances requiring you to register your alarm with your local police department. Contact your local police department or city hall to obtain your permit application. Once registered, be sure to call and give us your permit number. IMPORTANT: Most police departments will not respond to your alarm without a permit!


Q. How do I test my alarm?

A: Please test your alarm regularly to verify your system is operating properly. Simply arm your system and wait for the green light on the keypad to go out. Open a door to set off your alarm and wait until the loud siren sounds for 15 seconds or more, then turn if off with your code. You will receive a phone call from our Dispatch Center and you will be asked for your password. If you do not receive a call, notify our Dispatch Center immediately for assistance. We want to avoid any false alarm dispatches with the police department.


Q. What happens if there is a false alarm?

A: If you accidentally trip your alarm, enter your 4 digit code. If your alarm sounded for more than 10 seconds, you will receive a phone call from us verifying everything is ok. We will need your password, so please watch for our phone call. We do not charge for false alarms. If we are unable to reach you or if we do not receive the correct password, the police will be dispatched.
