Frequently asked questions

Do I have to register my security system with my county?

It depends. Every county has different regulations, but most counties do require you to register your system with them. You can find more information at your county’s FARU (False Alarm Reduction Unit) or by calling your local police departments’ non-emergency number. You can click the following link for additional information: Is it Really That Important to Register with the County?

Will changing service providers affect my security system?
Possibly. If you’re running off a phone line or IP (Internet Router) this could cause your system to stop communicating with our 24-hour monitoring station. If you are thinking about switching providers, please let us know so we can send a technician out to reroute your system.
Will getting rid of your phone line affect my security system?
Possibly. If you are communicating with a phone line, removing it will cause your system to stop communicating.
How do I test my security system?
You can put your system on test via the alarm.com app, by going to Monitoring Settings and selecting System Test Mode. You can also call our 24-hour monitoring station at 1-800-432-1429 and ask to put your system on “test” to begin performing your monthly system test.
