Test Your System
Follow these steps to test
When Sonitrol Security installed your alarm system, or if we converted your monitoring from a previous service provider, we tested all of your system components at that time to ensure they were properly communicating with the monitoring center.
Sonitrol Security encourages all of our customers to test their systems monthly to ensure their system is ready in the event of an emergency.
If, for any reason, the system did not communicate to the monitoring center, please call our service department at (843) 258-8226 or (803) 720-5881, Monday through Friday between 8am and 5pm and we will arrange for one of our qualified technicians to check your system.
- Call Central Monitoring
Call Sonitrol’s 24-hour central monitoring office at (843) 258-8226 or (803) 720-5881 to let them know you’ll be testing your system.
- Close Doors
Close all doors and protected windows, arm your system and allow the delay time to expire.
- Activate Alarm
Activate your alarm like an actual emergency by opening a protected door, pressing your panic or hold-up buttons, etc.
Allow your sirens (if an audible alarm) to sound for approximately 15 seconds to one minute and then turn off your system.
- Call Back
Call the monitoring center and announce that you are calling to check test results. The operator will describe the signals received. Ask the operator to take the system off test.
