Prevent Your Panel From Being Shut Off

Now that you know how to set the date and time on an ADT alarm system, one of the BIGGEST reasons we get asked this question so much is due to people experiencing unexpected power outages, causing their panel to power off.

One of the best ways to prevent your panel from powering off when your electricity inevitably goes off due to a storm or something is to invest in a backup battery.

As an ADT Authorized Dealer, Zions Security Alarms carries back up batteries (and other high-quality security hardware) at an incredibly low price.
