Fall is here, and so are Power Outages...

Typically if the power goes out, your alarm system will rely on the back up battery that was installed with your system.

In storm situations our central station response procedures are responded to accordingly. Typically, we are inundated with non-emergency supervisory alarms such as Low Battery and AC Power Failures; these types of alarms, will be cleared with notification from our monitoring center. The central station will attempt to notify you at the premises or, will leave a message with no further follow up. Please understand, your keypad may continue to show/reflect a low battery signal for a time, depending on how long your power was out. Generally, it will recharge itself, once the power is restored. Your system battery is designed to function for an average of 5-7 years. This, of course will depend on usage. Some, last 3 years, some have lasted 15 or 16 years. Know your Password. Test your system monthly.

These procedures are put in place to free up the operators to handle Emergency Signals such as Burglary or Fire Alarms. It is also meant to assure you that your system is still functioning.
