A Message to HomeSecure Customers:
Although this technique of burglars cutting the power supply in your home may be concerning, rest assured that your alarm will work even in the event of a power outage. Your system still works for up to 18 hours after a power cut. If it is triggered, it will continue to work as normal, sending a signal to the monitoring station.
Also if a burglar tries to tamper with the panel, by tearing it off the wall, the panel will immediate send an activation to the monitoring station.
At HomeSecure, we always strive to be one step ahead of the burglars and it’s safe to say they’ll be waiting quite some time for the power to go on your system.
