How To Select The Best Alarm Passcode

Your home is considered to be the ultimate place of safety, so why leave its security up to chance? Protecting your home is important and it can be made easy with the installation of a security system.

Security system passcodes arm and disarm your security system, ensuring only authorized individuals can enter your home. They are also required to perform routine maintenance on your system and to stop it from beeping.

You should keep a few things in mind when it comes to selecting your security system passcode.

Why You Need a Passcode

Passcode-protected keypads, which arm and disarm your security system, provide peace of mind that your family and valuable assets are safe. When your system is armed, individuals that enter the code incorrectly will be denied access to your home.

If the security system is triggered and then isn’t disarmed quickly with the passcode, many systems will alert a monitoring centre to verify the threat and dispatch emergency services.

Choose a Secure Passcode

Did you know the most common codes to unlock a mobile phone are “0000” and “1234?” This isn’t a new phenomenon; research of four-digit personal identification numbers (PINs) proves that “1234” accounts for more than 10% of all PINs. Combine “1111” and “0000,” and you’ve accounted for 18.6% of all PINs.

When creating an alarm passcode, ensure it’s uncommon and hard for intruders to guess.

Choose a passcode that’s meaningful to you. You’re more likely to remember information that is meaningful to you and your family, such as favourite numbers or special dates that aren’t easily guessed.

Do not use information that can be easily accessed by others. Your codes should be easy to remember, but make sure they don’t correlate with information that can be found by outsiders. People often choose passcodes that represent birthdays, anniversaries and addresses. This type of information can be accessed through the Internet and address books.

Throughout the day, you can expect to have to enter your security code a number of times. This is why you want a security code that is complex enough that someone else won’t be able to guess, but simple enough you will be able to remember.

Keep numbers varied and stay away from repeating any numbers. Years are also bad numbers to use, as many people will use their birthday, the majority of which start with 19.

Use different passcodes for different systems. Switching up system codes throughout your house can prevent multiple security breaches.

When you get your security system installed, it will likely come with a passcode already entered. You should change the generic passcode as soon as possible. This will ensure that you are the only one that knows how to disarm your system.

Protect Your Alarm Passcodes

Once you have chosen your security passcodes, don’t write them down and leave them out in the open. I
