What is an alarm duress code? All that you need to know about

Having a state of the art alarm system in your house might be a smart choice given the sudden spike in the crime rate over the past few years. But a standard alarm system might not go too well in your favor given a few specific cases of burglary or an intruder lurking in the alley of your house. That is why the silent alarm button is recommended, which allows you to alert the authorities in the event a breaking and entering or if a burglar has entered your house without having the alarms to go off.

If so then where does it leave the duress code and its connection with the silent alarm in general? might you ask? Duress code is a whole other story and is explained at great length in following;

Duress code; A covert distress signal
Have you ever been in a situation where an intruder would forcefully ask you to turn off the alarm security system at your house by pinning a gun to your head? If no then you must prepare for it because life is uncertain and so are the events that fill it up. In these situations, you will be asked to enter a security code that will terminate the alarm system completely so that the burglar or intruder can carry on with whatever intent they had to pursue. This takes off the risk of having authorities alerted for the intruder and permits you with a wonderful opportunity of using a duress code other than the alarm disabling code.

A duress code is a covert signal used by the individuals in times of utter distress caused by an intruder or when a hostile situation is in progress. So, when asked to disable the security system you can simply enter the duress code and an emergency signal will be sent to the proper authorities depicting a situation that is developing in your home and no sound or bell will go off. It will basically calm your captor and trick them into believing that you have done what you were asked of and the situation will not develop into a violent scene because they will have no motive of doing so.

Benefits of a duress code
That is why it is important that you seriously consider the silent alarm with a doorbell camera option and if you haven’t set it up at your house then it is advised that you do it right away.

In order for you to have a duress code, it is important that you get yourself a nice silent alarm system installed in the first place. Because a duress code can only be applied to an already available silent alarm system. When you have installed a new silent alarm system you will be provided with a duress code or will be asked to set one for yourself. That is why in these hard hostile situations you will be able to alert the authorities while sitting tight waiting for the help to arrive. When a signal goes off to the authorities, the police have a better chance of catching the criminal in the act instead of them running off at the sound of the alarm or harming someone in the action.

That is why it is important that you seriously consider the silent alarm option and if you haven’t set it up at your house then it is advised that you do it right away.
