- Test My Alarm System

Switching Is Easy

The Monitoring Center encourages its' customers' to test their alarm system monthly.

TMC runs a full diagnostic test at the time of install and/or switchover in order to ensure all of the components are communicating to our monitoring facility.

Due to phone line failures, lightening and/or power surges, a change in phone service, VOIP link, cable phone line etc...we urge you to test your system monthly. There are many outside interruptions that can cause your normally reliable security system to become incapable of doing its' job.
