A home security system is a simple, affordable way to protect your family. Once you’ve installed a security system, it’s easy to forget about it. Changing the alarm code periodically is critical for maintaining security for the home. The type of alarm system you’ve installed will dictate the level of difficulty of changing the alarm code.
Know your home security system master code
To change the alarm code, you’ll need the alarm system master code and the owner’s manual. When your Tucson AZ security provider sets up a new alarm system, they set the master code. Without the master code, you’ll be unable to set a new code. Locate the master code. Typically, the technician setting up the alarm system will write it down on a card. If you don’t have a card with a master code, check the owner’s manual.
Reference your home security system owner’s manual
The owner’s manual for your home security system will have step-by-step instructions for changing the alarm code. Depending on the type of alarm system you’ve installed in your Tucson home, you’ll need to press “#9” or the “Reset” button on the keypad. The system will prompt you (typically, with three beeps) to enter your current code, then “#,” and then the master code. After you’ve entered the master code, enter your new alarm code.
Your home security system provider is there to help
If you aren’t able to find the owner’s manual or aren’t clear about the exact steps for changing your home security system alarm code, contact your security system provider. They’ll be able to walk you through the steps to reset your alarm code. Keep in mind you’ll still need to have the master code to complete the code changing process over the phone. A security provider cannot issue a master code over the phone.
If you aren’t able to find the master code or don’t feel comfortable changing your alarm code yourself, schedule a technician appointment with your security provider. During the technician appointment, the security professional will fully reset your master code, in the event that you aren’t able to locate it, and change the alarm code to a new code of your choosing.
