What are Automatic Tests?


Automatic Test events appear in your Event Log when you have a professional monitoring plan. We use these events to test your system's connection and ensure you’re protected 24/7.  These are primarily used when users are out of town or not regularly arming/disarming their system. If we detect that your system has stopped sending Automatic Test events to us, we will notify you.
