How can I test my security system?

Call the Central Monitoring Station and request your account be placed on Test. You will need your pass code for this procedure. Arm your system in “Away Mode,” then open and close the entry door before time expires. Now, you can trip any devices you want to test. Allow the siren to sound for at least 30 seconds. Disarm the system. You will have a zone number displayed for each device that has been tripped. This same information should be received by the Central Monitoring Station. In the event a zone does not appear, re-test the system. Your system should be tested once a month.
