How to disarm my security alarm?

Each alarm system can have a slightly different sequence and procedure to disarm the system but most systems will require the input of a PIN (Personal Identification Number).

Disarming the alarm will stop the siren if it is sounding and/or disable the door and window sensors, motion detectors, etc allowing you to move about your home without triggering the system.

Consult your alarm user manual for instructions specific to your security system.

Disarming the security alarm

When you enter your home through a designated entry door (usually the front door) the alarm system will begin to beep, chirp, or emit a tone. This signals a timed entry delay has started and the system needs to be disarmed or the alarm will activate, the siren will sound, and a notification of activation will be sent to your monitoring centre*.

The entry delay is often around 30 seconds, however, this time can be adjusted by your security installer to allow enough time for you to enter the home and disarm the system.

In most cases, the system will require the input of a passcode or PIN, often a four-digit number, to the keypad to disarm the alarm system. If your keypad has a display panel it will often prompt the action required.

The display panel on the keypad will also signal if an error has occurred or if the passcode is incorrect.

*A delay can be programmed into your alarm system to allow time to re-enter the disarm PIN before a notification is sent to the monitoring station.
