have/had a security system?

what happens if i put in the wrong code? i just got this activated today, and hubby is gone, so he wasn't here to remember the code. i think i remember it (its only one of two codes) so anyways, what happens if i put in the wrong code when i disarm it in the a.m.? do they call me before sending police or do they call the police first? i'm just curious, i think i really do know the code b/c i did write it down about an hour after they left, but now i'm wondering if i chose the other one. just me freaking out about accidentally having emergency personnel sent. (for example they said the motion detectors won't see my cat, but i'm afraid they will and that will activate it, they said it doesn't see anything more than 40lbs but i'm still worried that it will see her for whatever reason or if she jumps off something, once again they said it'd be ok but i'm a worrier...

  • I know when we got ours installed they gave us a two week free trial of alarms. Meaning time to adjust. But yeah they'll either call for the code or ours comes over the alarm panel no phone call they just start talking.

  • oh we didn't go for the motion sensors we got glass break. Cause we were afraid the dogs would set it off.
