There are few things that you can do to ensure your safety. One thing you can do is to put in a home alarm. These devices are proven to be a great way to protect yourself, your family, and your belongings. Changing your alarm code frequently is a great way to ensure that you always have the utmost security.   Your security system is only secure if your password is secure. If a lot of people learn your alarm code, then your home is no longer secure. The chances that someone can break into your home increases greatly. Here are few easy steps to follow when changing the codes of the alarm.

The first thing that you have to do is to know the code that was set up by the company. This should be a no brainer.  This code would have been given to you as the master code when the security system was installed.  The owners manuel will provide step by instructions on how to change the alarm code. If you cannot find the master code or the instruction manuel, then call the security company for help.  They will be able to walk you through re-setting the alarm code once they determine what type of system you are using. You will still need to have your master code available to do this over the phone. Otherwise, they will have to send out a technician to help. During this service the technician will be able to locate the master code, and reset your code for you, as well as show you the process for the future.

Make sure that you provide the new code to those who need it. Otherwise, someone can trigger your alarm and cause a false breach. Also, don’t choose a code that is obvious. Try to think of something that only those in your household would know. Make sure after you re-set your code that it is working. Test it a couple of times to make sure. Changing your home alarm code should be a priority for your safety, and your family.
