In the Event of an Alarm
If the system is armed and an alarm occurs, present your prox tag to silence the alarm and
disarm the system. Present the tag a second time to clear the alarm from memory.
If a fire or carbon monoxide (CO) alarm occurs, you can silence the alarm with the prox tag, but
you must use your 4-digit security code to clear the alarm from memory.
Presenting the tag a second time following a fire or carbon monoxide alarm will
rearm the burglary portion of the system.
