What to Expect if Your Guardian Security Alarm Goes Off

To deliver the best response possible, Guardian has robust security procedures in place that vary depending on the type of alarm. Here’s a list of the different alarms you may experience, and what Guardian will do if they go off.  

Burglary Alarm  

If the alarm goes off while the system is armed, and no one disarms it: 

1. Guardian calls your primary number (We ask for your verbal password)    

2. If unavailable, Guardian calls your secondary contact number (password required)    

3. Guardian notifies a Patrol Unit or Guard Service, if applicable    

4. Guardian calls the police to notify them of your alarm    

5. Guardian calls all remaining contacts    

  

If the alarm goes off, but Guardian receives the signal that someone has disarmed the system: 

1. Guardian still calls your primary number (password not required)    

2. If you don’t know your password or are having trouble with your system, we will connect you with a Care Specialist
