Yes. As long as you do not have any building or association bylaw that restricts you from doing so.
If your alarm system has sounded for 30 seconds or more, please call our monitoring center at: 1.888.938.8253 to report the false alarm. When speaking to an Alarm Monitoring Center Representative, you will need to provide them with your personal ID# or passcode.
Every NWS alarm system complies with the ANSI / SIA CP-01 standard that says that every alarm system should be installed with a 30 second delay before a signal is transmitted to the monitoring center to help reduce false alarms. Therefore, you will only be contacted should an alarm sound for 30 seconds or more.
Please make sure to use your alarm code to turn off the alarm every time your alarm system goes off and then enter it again to reset the system. If you only enter your code once it will not necessarily reset the system. As best practice, please make sure to enter the code twice and then you will be able to arm your system again.
The chime sound I hear from the keypad every time a zone is opened all of a sudden stopped working- why?
The monthly alarm bill only covers the monitoring services. Anything that requires maintenance, relocation of equipment, repair service or install requires a labor charge along with any additional parts costs.
Our Monitoring Center keeps a continuous record of every signal we have receive from your alarm system. If you would us like to review any alarm activity, including time and type of signal and what action was taken please call us on: 1.888.938.8253 or contact us.
When we activate your security system, you will be monitored 24 hours a day and 7 days a week with our award-wining NEW WORLD protection.
When one of your alarm’s sensors are triggered by an event such as a break-in or environmental hazard, your alarm signals are transmitted to our Monitoring Center. A highly trained Monitoring Center Representative will activate emergency procedures, which includes contacting you and dispatching emergency services.
