In order to ensure proper protection of your home and family, it is very important to Test your Security System on a regular basis for proper operation. Frequent Tests provide two major benefits. They will help catch potential problems and identify Service needs, if any. During Tests is the perfect time to confirm that every member of the household knows how to operate the System correctly! Testing your Security System is simple:  Call Monitoring at 1-888-293-7797 24hrs/7days a week to place your System on Test Status.  It will still sound and be LOUD but, not Dispatch.  You will then go thru and set off your Alarm - open doors, windows, etc (Zones) to ensure that the System functions.  Verify with Monitoring that they received the signals, then take the System off Test Status.  If you have any questions or need to schedule service call 800-540-SAFE
