What is a 7-day orientation period?

General | My Account | My System

Once your security system is installed and activated, it will be in “orientation” mode for the first 7 days. This gives you some time to get comfortable using your new system without worrying about false alarms and potential fines.

During this time, Guardian will only call your primary phone number when your system sends a burglary, medical, duress, keypad fire, or panic alarm signal. We will only notify emergency responders if you request it.

If you have a monitored smoke or carbon monoxide detector, those alarm signals will always be treated normally. We’ll always alert emergency responders when we receive this type of signal from your system, regardless of where you are in the orientation period.  Already got the hang of it? Unless doing so violates a local municipal ordinance, we’re happy to turn this feature off for you early. Just give us a call at 1.800.PROTECT (1.800.776.8328).
