I ACCIDENTIALLY SET MY ALARM OFF BUT THE ALARM COMPANY DID NOT CALL ME, WHY?
Typically this is becuase you may have turned it off before the delay went off. Most alarms have any were to a 30 second to 1 minute delay before the security company calls or police are dispatched. Many people want the delay in case they run out of the house and forget something and open the door. We don't recommend have no delay for this reason. No delay would be typically for when you set you alarm to night mode.

Here is a quick guide for running a test. If you have any questions please contact us.
Security test should be run at least monthly. By testing your system you will validate that all signals are being received by Security Central. Before testing your system make sure that you call Security Central at 800-286-5699 or 800-438-4171 and let them know that you will be running a test on your system for a specified amount of time. They will note your account and will not dispatch the authorities during your testing period. It is imperative that you call back and put your system back on line if you have not specified a time frame. Upon calling back to reset your system you can verify what signals Security Central received. (i.e.: front door, windows or other specified contacts)
