Homeowners give much thought to the safety of their homes. Installing a security system is a way of protecting your home from intruders and other related problems. Generally, these systems require a code to turn on and turn off the alarm. Most systems allow you to assign a different alarm code for each family member, and your security company will help you configure the initial codes.

You can reset these codes on your own in the future, using the numeric keypad of the alarm. Most homeowners prefer code that nobody else knows, including employees of the security company.

  5. 5.       Press “Next” to enter the “User Code 2”, or “Security code 2”, if necessary. Enter the new second code and press “Enter”. Repeat until you have entered all your new codes.
