Signs Your Chicago Home Security System Isn’t Working

Posted on January 17th, 2019 by Alert Protective

Without a working home security system, threats may go undetected and leave you at risk. The following signs are tell tale signs that that is time to call Alert Protective Services, LLC. to repair your system.

System Failure

The clearest sign that your home security system in Chicago is not functioning properly is a system failure. After taking various steps to activate your system and threats are still not being detected, a failed system or faulty equipment may be to blame. By being proactive and regularly testing your home security system, you can avoid being unaware of system failure. When your tests reveal failure, contact Alert Protective Services, LLC. for maintenance.

Constant Beeping

Constant beeps throughout your home are also obvious signs that your home security system in Chicago needs to be fixed. Try replacing the batteries, resetting your system, or using a voltmeter to check wiring for corrorision. If you take these steps and do not see results, call Alert Protective Services, LLC.
