ProTex Technologies offers the friendliest three area residential system in the industry. This mode provides added security for a residential system. Why would you want less protection while you are in your home sleeping than you would if you were away? The answer is you wouldn't.
Our Home, Sleep and Away mode allows you to assign some of the interior protection to a special area of the system called the BEDROOM area.
When the system is armed in the SLEEP mode, both the PERIMETER and the INTERIOR areas are armed, while the BEDROOM area remains unarmed. This allows you to provide more protection for your family while they are most vulnerable, while they are sleeping.
Smart business owners know that they need to protect their business with a security system. These systems can protect your employees, your inventory, and your facility. Your system won't do a good job of protecting you if it's confusing and difficult to use. You want a system that's fast and simple, for you and your employees.
Our keypads give you shortcut keys that make turning your system on as easy as pressing a single button, with no complicated codes to remember. For example, you can press the Number 1 button, the All shortcut key to arm your system as you leave the building. The keypad confirms you armed it on the display, and with an audible confirmation tone. The system starts a countdown, to give you time to leave your facility. When the countdown is completed, the system automatically arms itself. You can also arm only the perimeter, the exterior doors and windows of your system, with the Number 6 button, the Perim shortcut key.
If your system has Sensor Reset enable, simply press the Number 2 button, the Reset shortcut key, to reset any latched fire devices, such as smoke detectors, or latching intrusion devices, such as glass break detectors.
Your system may sound a chime each time a protected door is opened. Press and hold the Chime shortcut key, the Number 5, to turn your door chime on or off. For monitoring systems, our keypads also include marked buttons that let you summon police, emergency, or fire personnel, even faster than dialing 911. Press and hold the two keys for emergency responder you need for 2 seconds, and help will be on the way.
Using shortcut keys, you can instantly arm your system and quickly perform many other common functions. Shortcut keys are one more way that we provide you with systems that create strong security, but are fast and easy to operate.
Technology is supposed to make our lives easier, but sometimes, the technology is so complicated that you can't figure out how to use it and waste time just trying to operate it. That's not the case with your security system; it includes simple-to-use shortcut keys that make using the most popular features as easy as pushing one button. Let's look first at how you activate your system, what's referred to as arming your system.
You actually have 3 options: Home, Sleep, and Away. Press the Home shortcut key, the 3 key, and you turn on only the perimeter protection but none of the interior sensors. Your keypad confirms that it's armed on the display and with an audible confirmation tone. Press the Sleep shortcut key, the 7 key, and in addition to the perimeter you, also arm some of the interior sensors, but you can still move freely around your bedrooms and sleeping area. When you leave your home, press the Away shortcut key, the 1 key, and you completely arm your system, both the perimeter and inside.
Your system can sound a chime each time a door opens so you will know any time someone comes or goes, and your small children can't leave without you knowing. To turn the chime on or off, just press the Chime shortcut key, the 5 button, on your keypad.
For monitored systems, some of our keypads also include marked buttons that let you summon police, emergency, or fire personnel even faster than dialing 911. Press and hold the two keys for the emergency responder you need for 2 seconds, and help will be on the way. While your system is armed you can use the Easy Exit feature by pressing the 8 key; this lets you open the door momentarily without disarming the system. This is handy when you need to let a pet out or retrieve the newspaper. After the programmed time expires, the system automatically re-arms.

It's a fact that most alarms are triggered by accident, caused when you or a family member forget that the security system was turned on and accidentally open a door. Sometimes you aren't sure. Is it a false alarm or
is someone in your home? With most systems, when you turn the siren off, you turn the entire system off, leaving you and your house unprotected.
