One of the most vital functions of the Go!Control Panel is the Hostage Code. The only way to get past our top of the line security system is by YOU turning it off!
Imagine this scenario – You have just returned home from your local market with your child. You begin to unload your produce and bread while an armed person has followed you into your garage. At gunpoint, he forces you and your child in the house. Suddenly, your security system begins beeping and the armed person panic and shouts, “Turn it off, now!”
You hesitate because you know that if you follow his orders there’s no one to rescue you and your loved one.
With Hi Alarm you would enter a special four-digit code to disarm the system. However, little does the armed person know that you actually sent out a silent signal, that an armed robbery is in progress. WITHIN SECONDS, help is silently on the scene.
In another situation you would press the "Emergency" button and then hit, "Panic." The siren then goes off which will most times scare the intruder away.
