Natural Disasters and Your Alarm System: What to Know

Living along the Pacific Ocean, there’s always the chance an earthquake or other disaster may strike at any moment. Natural disasters can damage your property and affect your alarm system in many ways. To prepare for disasters, experts recommend having a disaster plan in place, so you’re ready at a moment’s notice. However, many disaster plans don’t include your alarm system as part of your disaster response.

Here are some tips to manage your alarm when a disaster hits:

Regardless of where you live, natural disasters can affect you and your alarm system. Taking a few simple steps before a disaster occurs will help to avoid potential problems and the uncertainty that comes when you are required to make quick decisions. Here are a few tips:

  • If you install a generator to prepare for power outages, our service technicians or a qualified electrician can assist you with the best way to connect it to your alarm system.
  • Ensure that your contact list and information is current. You should contact our office at least once per year to update your contact information and list of responsible parties.
  • If you relocate in an emergency, contact us with phone numbers where you can be reached and provide us with the phone number of a contact person outside the immediate area, if available.

When You Get Back Home

When you can safely return to your home or business, you may have to deal with a multitude of issues. One of those will be what to do with your alarm system. If your area has experienced power outages, when the power restores, it may cause a false alarm.

  • Before reconnecting or activating your alarm system, contact us to avoid a false alarm. Our trained dispatchers can help you test your system or schedule a visit with a service technician.
  • Depending on the disaster, it may be necessary to replace the alarm system battery. Many systems that were taken offline by the Public Safety Planned Power Outages needed new system batteries after the power was restored.
  • Check sensors for water damage, lightning strikes, etc.
  • Call us to schedule an inspection of your alarm system if you believe damage may have occurred.
