Tyco Security Products and Alarm.com announced their partnership with the DSC IMPASSA Wireless security system

Tyco Security Products and Alarm.com announced their partnership and the IMPASSA Series is the first solution to reach dealers. This system comes with the alarm.com 3g8055 AT&T Cellular Communicator which cannot be purchased separately to be used with older IMPASSA Systems. The alarm.com IMPASSA version 1.3 + wireless security system kit also comes with the onboard daughterboard which will enable the use of the alarm.com image sensors , and the z-wave module which will allow for the use of home automation devices. If you have an older version of the IMPASSA and are looking to use the alarm.com interactive services all you would have to do is swap the control panel with the alarm.com DSC IMPASSA wireless security panel. Note if you are also wanting to have the zwave and daughterboard you must purchase this system in the kit form because if you just purchase the panel by itself it will not come with either of those items. All of your door contacts, keypads, motion detectors, smoke detectors/ heat detectors will still work with the updated panel.

The two companies plan to integrate other select hybrid systems for global markets later in the year on systems such as the all new DSC Neo system.   The close engineering collaboration and partnership between Tyco Security Products and Alarm.com will ensure the full range of current and future Alarm.com services are supported providing a leading, future-proof platform to dealers globally.

This is a much-anticipated day for Tyco – they have another great partner on board which has the ability to perfectly complement the current and future product portfolio.  It is another step in the right direction, offering customers product choice and service excellence.  “We look forward to an innovative future with this partnership with Alarm.com,” states Tim Myers, Product Line Director – Intrusion, for Tyco Security Products.

 Its October that means its Crime Prevention Month!

Its October that means its Crime Prevention Month. With that being said from all of us here at GEOARM we would like to offer some advice on keeping your home safe when you are not home.

  • Keep the lights on – A burglar will tend to break into a house or apartment that is poorly lit as opposed to a house that is well lit.
  • Make sure to trim the hedges- A well kept yard will tell any possible burglars that someone is home to maintain the yard.
  • When you are not home make it seem as if you are home- This can be obtained by keeping some lights on and or a tv on to make it seem as if someone is still home. We would recommend doing this with a security system that offers the availability to do home automation. Through home automation you can now schedule certain lights and devices to be on while you are not. If you dont have a security system capable of doing this we would then recommend getting some timers to be set at times you will be away.
  • Place your security signs and stickers up- A burglar will think twice when they see you have a burglar alarm system with monitoring.
  • Tint your window and keep your blinds closed- Keep your valuable out of sight from any potential burglar by tinting your windows and keeping your blinds closed. We dont want to make it easy for a burglar to know what you have.
  • Social Media- This day and age social media is booming, that is a wonderful thing we have but, it should not be a feed to announce that you will not be home.


 GEOARM recommends testing your security system weekly!

Please call GEORM at (1-877-443-6276) to put your account on test prior to replacing any batteries on your security system devices. We perform this alarm monitoring signal test free of charge.

1. Call GeoArm.
2. Give the agent your name, address, account number (CSID) and false alarm password.
3. Ask us to place your security system on test mode for 1 hour.
4. For the next hour you can cause alarms without the police, fire, or other departments being notified.
5. Please arm your security system and wait for exit delay (15, 30, 45, 60, 75 or 90 seconds delay) to expire.
6. Open your door and windows.
7. Walk in front of your motion detectors.
8. If you have an emergency button such as a panic button, go and press it.
9. Repeat steps 7, 8 as many times as desired.
10. Disarm your system using your keypad or keyfob.
11. After doing a complete test, contact us back.
12. GEOARM will verify your alarm signals were received, and ask us to place your account off test mode.
In the event that your system is not working properly, please call us at 1(877)443-6276 to have an alarm technician set up a remote service call to solve the issue.
