    Business FAQ's
          I am changing my telephone service to a VOIP based phone service. Will that affect my alarm system?

It all depends on various factors related to the alarm system that you have.  Give us a call and we will be happy to give you a more definitive answer based on your system. 



          Can I set my alarm for extra security when I am inside my business after hours?

Yes.  Most security systems allow two basic alarm settings, give us a call and we can talk through the particulars related to the system installed at your place of business.

 



          Can I get a discount on my business insurance policy if I have an alarm installed?

We suggest you talk with your insurance agent or carrier to find out about any discounts offered.

Enter your personal security code into the keypad to silence the siren.  Then please call American Alarm's monitoring station at 845-564-3763 ext. 0 and provide the operator with your name, address and all ok word/phrase.
