When extreme weather events like tropical storms and hurricanes strike, Guardian Protection is dedicated to helping patrons bide safe. If you live in an area affected by tropical storms and hurricanes, here are a few things you need to know about Guardian and your monitored Guardian security system.
Guardian’s Monitoring Center is Prepared for Hurricanes
Guardian’s U.S.-based, award-winning monitoring centers stay highly prepared for extreme weather by focusing on predicted weather events and increasing our qualified monitoring centre staff accordingly. Our monitoring middles are both certified by the Underwriters Laboratory( UL ), apply multiple sources of power, and are fully redundant to sustain our monitoring operations during severe weather events.
During a hurricane or tropical storm, the first thing you might notice regarding your Guardian security system is a severe climate alert on your panel or keypad. This feature helps make sure you’re aware of dangerous conditions in your area. You can silence the alerting when you hear it.
If your power “re going away”, you may get a notification on the Guardian App. Likewise, your system will revert to back-up battery power which may last 4 to 6 hours. This will trigger a beeping sound from your system. Typically, if you disarm your system in the way that you ordinarily do, the beeping will stop. Your system will likely restart beeping approximately every 4 hours at which hour you’ll have to disarm your system again. When the power is restored to your panel, the panel battery will usually start to recharge and amply restore battery power within 24 -4 8 hours.
Your alarm system should continue to transmit signals to Guardian’s 24/7 monitoring centre even though they are the battery is low, rendered the signal communication technique your system utilizes is still functioning and has not experienced difficulties due to the extreme weather. If your system powers down because of insufficient battery or its communication method is down, your system will no longer transmit signals. In case of an emergency, you should contact emergency personnel immediately if possible.
