GC2 Panel- What is the duress code and how do I use it?
If you still have questions or prefer to get help directly from an agent, please submit a request.
We’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
The duress code is for situations when you need emergency personnel sent to your home but don’t want to alert an intruder that you are calling for help. For example, if you are being forcibly held in your home and need to “disarm” your panel, you can use this code to stop the panel from beeping while simultaneously alerting Alder that you are in distress and need immediate assistance. When Alder receives a duress code, we immediately dispatch the police to your home without attempting to contact you further.
