A Duress Code feature is intended to be used in a situation when forced to disarm or arm the system by threat or when felt a life is in danger. When the Duress Code is used, the system will arm/disarm like normal, but will send a silent, duress signal to the monitoring company. This signal is high importance and the monitoring company will then call authorities without calling you first.
A Duress Code only works if being monitored and connected to a monitoring station.
