Alarm Connect takes about 30-45 minutes to install, depending on the current state of your home alarm system.
Only an accredited Alarm Connect technician can install the device on your home alarm system. This is because only accredited Alarm Connect technicians have had the necessary training, and access to reference materials and technical support if needed.
Only specific home alarm systems are compatible with Alarm Connect. Check the list of compatible home alarm systems above. If you're unsure about which home alarm system you have, contact our product support team for assistance via email@example.com.
Your alarm panel will act exactly as it did before installation of Alarm Connect. Your home alarm keypads and remotes should all continue to behave as they did before Alarm Connect was installed, provided your home alarm system is connected to a working battery. The Alarm Connect device may lose connection to the GSM cellphone network, however, depending on the cellphone towers in your area. This normally reconnects once the power outage in your area is resolved.
The Alarm Connect device will be unable to report on the current status of your home alarm system and will show as 'Not Connected' in the app. This may be due to a cellphone tower failure in your area, possibly due to load shedding. Your home alarm system should continue to operate as it did before Alarm Connect was installed (using keypads and remotes). Should your device not reconnect within 24 hours, contact our product-support team for assistance via firstname.lastname@example.org.
