That would depend on the type of alarm.... you might want to contact the alarm company and let them know the house has changed hands. Because if the alarm is set off by accident, the alarm company will need authorization from the last known account holder to cancel the call. So if you set it off and you arent registered with the alarm company the cops will turn up at your house no matter what you tell the alarm company and then you will be charged for the false alarm (by both the RCMP and the alarm company).
I know that I need to get a new battery for it. I just wish that the old owner had a manual. I think I have to see if I can get to the box and see what make and model it is. I called the number of company that was on the alarm sticker on the door, but they are out of business. I need someone that can come over and get it all running with my codes.
It was easy to get to before I made it into a storage and filled it up. LOL Now I can't even get to it really. I need to move it over a few feet and that is it. I can always lock that door. And with everything that has happened I am buying locks for every door and maybe cupboard in the house.
