I’m very proud of the work that you are doing to make Stander a force for good in the world. We touch millions of lives by creating safety and independence for the Elderly.

Our company values are centered around Mind, Body, Spirit

  • Mind- Mastery and Satisfaction of Work,

Training: Arming & Disarming The Security Alarm  


Video Notes:

Alarm code: 6666

Auto Arm Times:

  • The system will automatically arm at 10:30pm. If you are in the building at this time, you will hear beeping and you have 70 seconds to disarm the alarm
  • If you want to disable the alarm, enter (code + 1(off))
  • Important: If staying past 10:30 pm, you need to arm the alarm before you leave (code + 2(away)) 
  • Important: If you are the first one here and it’s after 8am, use your key fob to open the door (your key will disable the alarm)

Arm the system: Code + 2 (away)

  • You have 70 seconds to get out. If you’re racing it, the motion sensors can reset the countdown.

Disarm the alarm: Code + 1 (off)

If the Alarm goes off:

  • It will go off for 6 minutes then shut down, we will get a call from the security company and they will ask for the secret code to verify identity (Code = Respect1 or 6666)
  • It will say “Alarm” on the keypad, put your code in and 1 (off) to silence it
  • It will still say “Alarm”, and it wants you to acknowledge those alarms by pressing the star button to scroll through, and inputting the Code + 1 (off) a second time, and repeat until it clears alarms to disarm (green “ready” light)

If you are here after 10:30 pm, you have to arm the alarm before you leave (Code + 2 (away))

If you accidentally set it off, you have to call the number on the keypad and verify who you are (your name and the code: Respect1 or 6666) to cancel the alarm

If batteries ever go low, it will warn you the battery is low (requires 123 lithium battery), call the monitoring service before you do it because the alarm with go off for tampering
