How can I test my burglary alarm system?


Testing your alarm system is a great way to confirm your system is communicating properly with our monitoring center and that your devices are working properly. We recommend testing at least once a month. Be sure to read the full instructions before getting started. 

1. Log into your Guardian account or call us at 1.800.PROTECT (1.800.776.8328) to place your system on Test

2. Arm your system (the alarm will sound during this test) . 

3. Open any doors or walk by any motion sensors that you would like to test.  

4. You can receive your test results by email if you are logged into your Guardian account, or we can review them with you by calling 1.800.PROTECT (1.800.776.8328).
