Your Security System Holiday Checklist

With Christmas and New Year’s quickly approaching have you thought about your security system setup?

This year both Christmas Day and New Year’s Day fall on a Friday. You will want to make sure these days plus any other company shut down days are designated as holidays in your security system programming, so as to avoid doors unlocking on your access control system or your intrusion alarm system disarming (for those systems programmed to automatically arm and disarm based on a schedule).

Protection Plus Security Services, Inc. customers:

Access Control System: You can program your holiday schedules directly via the access control system software. If you have any questions regarding this contact our office.

Intrusion Alarm System: For our scheduled alarm system customers please provide our office with an updated holiday list if this has changed from the dates provided earlier this year. We will update the holiday schedule in your alarm panel at no charge as part of our service.

Alarm System Notification: Will your responsible party (call list) personnel be in town to respond to alarm calls or are they travelling for the holidays?

You may want to check with your responsible party personnel as to their holiday plans and if necessary update your Responsible Party list.

Protection Plus Security Services, Inc. customers:

You can download the alarm system update forms from our website. Here is the link for the Control Center update form and the Alarm Panel update form: http://www.protectionplussecurity.com/support/PPSS_support.htm

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We at Protection Plus Security Services, Inc. look forward to serving you in 2010!  http://www.protectionplussecurity.com/
