We did it! We made it to the end of another year. Your friends at Alarm Grid would like to express our huge thanks to all of you. As 2022 comes to an end, we appreciate all the relationships we have built. Our hope is that 2023 allows us to build even more.
Unfortunately, during the holidays the bad guys are lurking. So please be sure you are arming your alarm and benefitting from the protection it provides. Also, with the increase in at-home cooking, please make sure that you are regularly testing your smoke detectors. These, along with heat detectors and carbon monoxide detectors, must work when we need them. Regular testing will provide that assurance.
Alarm Grid will be closed all day on Friday, December 30, 2022, for our New Year's observance. This will allow us to spend time with our families as 2022 comes to an end. During this time, we will not be answering phones, responding to emails, or shipping out orders. We will return to our normal schedule on Monday, January 2, 2023 at 9:00 am.
While our support staff will be away, our monitoring station operates 24/7/365, so for those customers who have chosen full central station monitoring, your system will be continuously monitored by trained operators. They are always ready to answer the call and dispatch when needed if your alarm calls.
If you need to contact the monitoring station, either to report a false alarm or to put your system on test, you can call Criticom Monitoring Services (CMS) at (888) 818-7728 and choose Option . This is the process for Alarm Grid customers who reside within the United States. Once an operator answers, you'll need to supply your name, address, and your false alarm password.
For our Canadian customers, our monitoring partner in Canada is Rapid Response. They can be reached at (800) 932-3822. Remember, when you call either monitoring station you will be asked for your name and address, and to verify your false alarm password or false alarm phrase. Providing the wrong information, or providing the Duress password, will result in a police dispatch.
If you have a support question or need to make adjustments to your account, the monitoring station won't be able to assist you with that. In those cases, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a detailed explanation of your request and any supporting details. We will get back to you when we return to the office on Monday. When we return, there will almost certainly be a bit of a backlog, so please be patient while we catch up. We will get back to you at our earliest opportunity.
If you are looking to sign up for new service, buy a new system, or expand your existing system, please visit alarmgrid.com. Our self-service website is always there for you. When looking to add new components, select the drop-down to "Enhance Your System" and search for the type of device you are looking for. One feature many overlook is the "Browse By" option along the right side of the page. On Monday, we will be tackling all the orders placed while we were away.
We hope that everyone stays safe, as we all say goodbye to 2022 and welcome in 2023! We look forward to working with you in 2023!
