I have sold my house and will be moving soon, what should I do?

Answer: Amherst Alarm is similar to any utility company; we need an adequate amount of time to process your cancellation request. Please notify us approximately one week prior to your closing date so we can get all documentation processed. We will also need to stop by your house to reconfigure the system, so alarms are no longer transmitted, at no charge. For more information, visit our moving page.

I have forgotten my password what should I do?

Answer: Contact our office, we will be glad to assist you! You will need to come to our office with ID and proper documentation for verification before any changes can be made.

I have forgotten my code what should I do?

Answer: We may be able to connect to your alarm from our service department to retrieve your code. Call us, we will be glad to help!

How do I know my system is being monitored?

Answer: You should test your system weekly. Contact our office when you want to test your system. A monitoring response center dispatcher will assist you with the test.

We are going on vacation and a friend is watching our house, should I give them our code and password?

Answer: No. Most alarm systems can have multiple codes. We can help you program a temporary code for your friend to use. You can give us a temporary password to be used while you are away. Also, you may want to inform us of the dates you will be away and set up any special procedures for notification.
