The Touchpad serves two critical functions in your home security plan. As a wireless Touchpad, it enables you and your family to easily arm and disarm your system from a single location. Once armed, it will let you know how much time you have to exit the home as it counts down with audible beeps. Upon returning with MyPlace in “Away” mode, it will beep to remind you to disarm your system. If you do not disarm in the predetermined time, the Touchpad doubles as a high-volume siren – making sure intruders know their unwelcomed visit has been noticed with up to 115 decibels of unmistakable alarm sound. Your Touchpad should be kept in a convenient location within your home that also has access to a power source for charging.
