Smarter Security Cancel Verify Alarm App

Cancel and Verify Alarms…Right from your App

Smart Signal enhances your system’s professional monitoring with a set of clear, simple emergency buttons in your Alarm Engineering app powered by alarm.com.

These Buttons Let You:

  • Quickly verify an alarm at your property to expedite emergency response,
  • Cancel a false alarm easily, or
  • Send a panic signal from your home or business if you discover an emergency yourself.

Why Cancel/Verify?

False alarms are a common concern and accidental dispatches ties up important resources, potentially distracting from real emergencies. Now with the press of a button and without needing to wait for a call from our central monitoring station, an entire situation can be resolved saving headaches, time and money.

Are These Buttons Always Visible?

Alarm events and emergencies are stressful. These features were designed to be easily accessible while also safeguarding against accidental alarm events. For this reason, Cancel and Verify buttons only appear in the app during alarm events. To confirm or verify the alarm, just press and hold the relevant button for three seconds.

Act Quickly

Since we pride ourselves on dispatching the authorities to you quickly, you’ll need to cancel any false alarms almost immediately to stop the process. For this reason, the Cancel/Verify buttons in your app are only available for two minutes. If you aren’t sure whether an alarm signal has been triggered or whether you correctly declared a false alarm, we can always help at 410-546-2210.

Are Alarm signals Held until a Cancel/Verify Button is Pressed?

NO! All alarm signals still send as they always have.

Available Now

This new feature is in your app now at no additional cost to you.

It’s Time to Update Your Electronic Access Control

Using cloud-based security technology gives you the freedom to manage one or multiple locations for any device – your desktop, tablet or smartphone – from a single account. Here’s some limitations of the old card access vs. new cloud access control.

Limitations of Old-Fashioned Access Control

  • It’s a Security Risk – lost, misplaced, copied or stolen keys with no real knowledge of who has access
  • Limited Flexibility – you must be onsite to lock or open doors
  • Limited Scalability – more doors and locations require more locks and keys
  • No Integration Possibilities – no integration options

Upgrade to Cloud Access Control to Enjoy…

  • Smarter Security – revoke access if a key card is lost or stolen, or when an employee leaves
  • Flexibility – secure or open doors from anywhere, right from your smartphone or tablet
  • Unlimited Scalability – add as many doors, offices, and users…anytime
  • Integrate with Key Systems – including alarms, surveillance cameras, and HR systems
