What happens to my security system if the power goes out?

Equipment | General | My System | Panels

If your power goes out, your system will run on its back-up battery for approximately 4-6 hours. When the power returns, your panel battery should recharge within 24-48 hours. 

If power is completely lost, the system should restore to its previous arming status once the power is back on. If your panel was armed prior to losing power, it should be armed when the power restores to your system. If your panel battery does not recharge within 48 hours of the power returning, you may need to replace your battery. You can contact us at 1.800.PROTECT (1.800.776.8328) to order a new battery. We’ll ship it right to you!
