HOW TO TEST YOUR SYSTEM

There are two types of tests to perform: testing signals within your home and testing the signal from your home to the monitoring center. The procedures vary slightly depending on the manufacturer of the system. If you have one, refer to the owners' manual to test according to your system type. If not, the following test procedures will.

Testing the operation of all door and window contacts, and motion detectors.

    1. Verify that the system is in "READY" mode. Do not arm it!

    2. Open each protected door or window, one at a time.

    3. Check that the keypad displays the door or window you are testing is open.

    4. Close the respective door or window. The keypad should display.

    5. Repeat this procedure for each sensor in the system

Testing the signal transmission to the Monitoring Station.

    1. Call the Monitoring Station and ask that your system be placed in ˇ°TESTˇ± mode. Be ready to give your monitoring account number and password to the operator.

    2. Arm your system as usual and set it off by opening a door or window, or by tripping a motion detector. Allow the alarm to sound for at least one minute.

    3. Turn off your system and reset it to ˇ°READYˇ± mode.

    4. Verify that the signal was received by the Monitoring Station.
