Advantages and Disadvantages

With the app, you can arm or disarm your SCW Shield from anywhere you have internet. Have an unexpected guest arrive that you want to let in without having to give them your pin or triggering the alarm? No problem.

With the Pin Pad, you always know where the arm / disarm buttons are, since they're attached to the wall. Get all the comfort of reliable predictability without having a panel that a thief can break.

With the KeyFob, disarming your alarm is as easy and convenient as unlocking your car. Also, you probably already have your keys out, anyways.

The SCW Shield can Support:

Up to 8 PINPads

Up to 4 Touchpads

Up to 50 KeyFobs


With the SCW Shield, there are 3 ways you can send a panic (distress) signal to the central monitoring station

1. Put in your Distress Code into the Pin Pad.

To put your SCW Shield into Panic Mode with the Pin Pad while making it look like you have disarmed the system, enter your Secure, 4-digit distress code. The LED will turn green to make it look like it is disarmed, but, as long as you have professional monitoring, the police will be summoned by the central monitoring station.

2. Press and Hold Both the Arm Away and Arm Stay Buttons on the Pin Pad

To put your SCW Shield into Panic Mode with the Pin Pad, press and hold both the "Arm Away" (bottom right) or "Arm Stay" (bottom left) buttons until the LED flashes red.

3. Press and Hold Both the Stay and Away Buttons on the KeyFob.

By default, pressing STAY and AWAY at the same time will cause a panic alarm. Panic alarms triggered from a fob cannot be canceled from the same key fob.
