Home Safety - Security System

Our homeowners can optionally choose a standalone security system or a fully integrated system that includes fire and carbon monoxide detection.

Care and Maintenance Tips General Information

  • Your security system is powered via electricity, however a battery backup exists in the event the power goes out.
  • The backup batteries must be replaced periodically and the system tested according to manufacturer's guidelines to ensure it is in reliable working condition.

Replace Batteries

  • Always use the appropriate battery type recommended by the manufacturer as a replacement.
  • A low battery warning will sound if you have a low battery condition on one of your wireless sensors. The sensor will still operate fully but the low battery condition should be resolved as soon as possible.
  • When you replace the weak battery with a new one, the sensor will send a "good battery" signal to the control panel when the sensor is activated (by opening a door or window, etc.).
  • If you do not activate a sensor, the control unit will automatically clear the low battery signal within one hour.

Routine Care

  • Keep dust from accumulating on the keypad and all protective sensors, particularly on motion sensors and smoke detectors.
  • The keypad and sensors should be cleaned carefully with a dry soft cloth. Do not spray water or any other fluid on the units.
  • Do not slam sensor-protected doors or windows.

* If you are in a Condo residence please refer to your Condo Association Documents to verify your responsibilities, if any, for the maintenance of these areas.
