For Monitored Customers
  • What are passcodes?

    These are a “secret code” that we use to identify your system and validate any notifications we receive. This code is in place for your safety and the safety of those in your home or business. Ensure it is placed in a safe place. When you call in to discuss and/or request anything regarding your account have the code ready. If you would like to change your default passcode number, that process can be done through EPS My Account.

  • What does the EPS Monitoring Center watch for?

    Our industry-leading EPS Monitoring Center is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. They are watching your system and will alert you to:

    • Fire and intrusion alarms triggers
    • Loss of Supervision and communication
    • Low battery levels in system components
    • Late to Test (when the routine scheduled “call” between your panel and our Monitoring Center is missed)
      • PLEASE NOTE: These calls, for your safety, are made as soon as we get that signal, which could happen at any time of the day or night. If you would like to restrict the time we call and for what signal we are calling, please send your request in writing to our Records Department. This can be done via mail, fax, or email (records@epssecurity.com).

  • EPS alarm procedures

    Following are general EPS Monitoring Center alarm procedures. You are welcome to add special instructions to your account.

    Burglary Alarms
    If a tripped alarm is not quickly disarmed at the keypad, the alarm is sent to the Monitoring Center. An operator will call the first two contact numbers for alarm verification. If EPS is unable to contact a Passcode holder, authorities will be dispatched and the operator will attempt to notify someone from the contact list.

    IMPORTANT: If a non-Passcode holder answers the premises phone, the Monitoring Center operator will get the name of the person, dispatch police and attempt to reach someone on the contact list to obtain authorization. If authorization is confirmed, police dispatch will be cancelled.

    Fire Alarms
    Upon receiving a fire alarm, EPS will dispatch the specified fire department, per the National Fire Alarm Code (NFPA 72). Our operator will then call the premises to notify an authorized person about the alarm. If no answer is received, EPS will attempt to notify someone from the contact list.

    CO & Gas Detector Alarms
    An EPS operator will call the premises to notify an authorized person about the alarm. If no answer is received, EPS will dispatch the specified fire department. We will then attempt to notify someone from the contact list.

    Hold-Up/Panic Alarms
    Upon receiving an alarm, EPS will dispatch the appropriate police department. The EPS Monitoring Center will NOT call the premises to verify alarm, but will give the phone number to the authorities if requested.

    False Alarms
    In the event of a false alarm, it is the responsibility of the subscriber to notify the EPS Monitoring Center as soon as possible. After receiving a valid Passcode number and verification of the false trip from a subscriber, dispatch can be cancelled.



Access Control
  • How do I order more access cards?

    Order more cards or keyfobs through the Card Order Request form.

    If you are looking to add an individual to your alarm call list and/or create additional pass codes, please contact our Records Department (Records@EpsSecurity.com) with that request.

  • How do I set schedules?

    Different EPS Access Control systems can have completely different scheduling procedure. It’s important to contact our Card Access team to set schedules for holidays, open/close and other event based scheduling.
