What is a Duress Code?

A duress code is a secret distress signal used by an individual who is being forced to disarm their alarm system, typically in the event of an attack or robbery. This code can be used in place of a user code and will send a silent panic alarm to the central monitoring station and simultaneously summon law enforcement. To use the duress code, you must first activate it. Please refer to your panel's user manual for instructions on how to do this.
