Burglar alarm
ACME Securitas, Paphos     97 617886
5 Movement sensors and 2 door sensors             Works using keyfobs but security number is ----.
They come out approx. annually to change batteries in sensors – they need to be called
Having said that, very easy just to change batteries in sensors yourself
Instruction bookley tells you how to reset everything
When the alarm goes off, you get messages on your phones as well as house siren
So you need to change the phone numbers that get the warning messages
