Today we’re going to show you how easy it is to install your keychain remote for your alarm system. The keychain remote may either have two or four buttons. Both will be installed the same.

Before installing any piece of equipment make sure to have a Protect America security expert on the phone. They will guide you and add your new piece of equipment into the monitoring station’s sensor information so that it is numbered correctly. For example, if your monitoring station sees sensor “5” is sending a signal, they will know its a keychain and know that there is an emergency. If its not named at all or incorrectly, they could see it as a regular alarm rather than an immediate emergency.  By pressing the keychain’s lock and unlock button simultaneously, you send a panic signal which immediate dispatches authorities. That’s just another reason why keychain remotes come in handy for your alarm system.
