Knowing how to disarm your Hills Alarm System is essential for ensuring the security of your home. To be able to do this, you must first know the basics of your system. This means understanding the features, components, and working of your system. This will help you understand how to safely and effectively disarm your system when you need to.

Determine the type of alarm system you have

Before attempting any type of disarm procedure on your Hills alarm system, you will want to first make sure that you know exactly which type of system you are dealing with. If you are uncertain, please consult the Hills manual or call a professional technician.

Hills alarm systems can come in a variety of formats, such as wireless systems, wired systems and even hard-wired systems which require special expertise to install. Each system has different keypads and it is important to know the exact model number before attempting any type of programming.

This guide is designed for users who have a wired or wireless Hills alarm system installed in their property. Please contact an expert if your system features hardwiring or an additional layer of security such as motion sensors or smoke detectors.

Familiarize yourself with the control panel

The control panel of your Hills alarm system is the device that lets you arm and disarm your home security system. This panel, also called a keypad, can also sound an alarm if an intruder enters while the system is armed. So it’s important to familiarize yourself with this device so you’ll know how to use it properly.

When you take off the protective cover from the control panel, you’ll see the touch-sensitive keys that allow you to do various functions related to the alarm system. Most Hills alarm systems will have a numeric keypad with numeric keys and other function buttons for programming or for activating police or fire alerts. It is possible that some systems may include a voice input panel instead of numeric keys, as some Hills models are voice activated.

Once you become familiar with how your control panel works, take note of which type of protection it offers and check your owner’s manual or contact a professional technician if there are any questions. Knowing what features are included in your system can help ensure that all necessary steps are taken when arming and disarming the device to prevent false alarms or intrusions into your home.

Locate the manual for your system

Whether you have a Hills brand alarm system in your house or you’ve just bought one, it is important to familiarize yourself with its capabilities and safety features. One of the first steps is to locate the manual for your system in order to understand all its components.

Manuals for Hills alarm systems can be found online, in the technical libraries at many retailers, or from a licensed installer/programmer. The manual should provide comprehensive information about arming and disarming your alarm system, programming and user codes, changing settings for specific sensors, troubleshooting problems and more. If you are unable to locate a printed manual, check online resources such as the Hills Security website where many of their manuals are available for download.

If available, be sure to refer to diagrams along with the written instructions as they can help familiarize yourself with how each component works together to secure your home or business. It is important that everyone living in (or visiting) your home knows how to use the alarm and can do so safely and efficiently.

Disarming the System

In order to disarm the Hills alarm system, you will need to enter a security code. This code is usually located on the control panel of the alarm system. It may be labeled as “Access Code” or “Security Code”. Once you have the code, you can proceed to the next step and begin the disarming process.

Enter the code on the control panel

The first step in disarming your Hills alarm system is to enter the code on the control panel. The code is a sequence of four digits designated by you during the installation of the system. If you do not remember this code, you can use the keypad directly; however, be sure to keep it secure as it is an important safety measure that will help protect your home or business.

Once you have entered your code on the control panel, press ‘#’ to disarm the system. The word ‘OFF’ should appear on the screen if it has been successfully disarmed – if not, re-enter your code and try again. The Hills alarm system utilizes multiple layers of security and is programmed to sound an alert after three successive unsuccessful attempts at entering a security code. If this occurs, simply wait for one minute before attempting to re-enter your security code.

Open the door or window to disarm the system

In order to disarm your Hills alarm system, you must first open the door or window of your home. When the door or window is opened, the alarm system will issue a warning beep and a flashing red light will be visible on the alarm control panel. The alarm code must then be entered via the keypad in order to disarm the system. It is important to ensure that all authorized users of the system are aware of the specific disarm code.

The Hills alarm system also has additional features that can help protect your home from unauthorized access. Features such as motion detectors, window sensors and panic buttons can help alert occupants as soon as an intruder is detected and provide them with an extra sense of security. Furthermore, it also allows for remote access via an app or web-based interface, so that homeowners can monitor their home and stay informed about any potential threats or intrusions while away from home.

Utilize the keypad to disarm the system

The Hills Alarm System is designed with quick, easy disarmament in mind. To use the system, first enter your security code on the keypad. Once correct entry of your code is verified, the system will reset and disarm itself.

If you have a recent model of Hills alarm system, you may be prompted to enter a specific code before arming and disarming. Having a sectioned disarm code like this helps to further protect your home and family from possible intrusions.

Also be aware that some Hills Alarm models are equipped with auto-disarm features so that when you leave home for any length of time the system will automatically arm itself again upon re-entry. In those cases, simply follow the directions from the keypad once more and enter the correct disarm code when indicated on the display screen to deactivate it again.

Troubleshooting Common Issues

If you have a Hills alarm system in your home, it’s important to know how to properly maintain and troubleshoot it in case something goes wrong. While there are a few common problems that can happen with these systems, they can usually be resolved without calling in a professional. Let’s take a look at some of the most common issues and how to troubleshoot them.

Check the batteries in the control panel

If your Hills Alarm System is not operating correctly, check whether the control panel batteries are functioning and need to be replaced. This is important because the control panel batteries supply power to the internal clock and must be replaced every five years, or when necessary.

Checking the batteries in your Hills Alarm System involves removing the cover from the alarm’s control panel and accessing a set of nine-volt batteries, which should appear similar to a standard household battery. To determine if battery replacement is needed, remove one of the nine-volt batteries from its slot and check its voltage with a multimeter. If it reads below 9 volts, replace both nine-volt batteries with new unit at the same time for optimal performance. Additionally, make sure to purchase alkaline nine-volt replacements for best results.

Check the wiring of the system

To check the wiring of your Hills alarm system, you need to look at all the connections very carefully. If any of the connections are loose they can cause false alarms or malfunctioning. Check each wire to make sure that it is securely connected to its respective component and plugged in properly. Also, make sure that all of the wires are routed correctly; this means that they should never be twisted into a loop or doubled back on themselves as this can interfere with the way your system operates.

If there appears to be a problem with one or some of the wires, then there are a few steps you can take to potentially solve the issue. You can try removing each wire from its component and reattaching it firmly before putting it back into place. Alternatively, you could also try using electrical tape or zip ties to securely fasten them in place before reconnecting them back together. It is also important to ensure that all associated components have enough slack so as not interfere with their normal functions if moved slightly; you may need to make adjustments accordingly if needed.

Make sure the sensors are properly connected

When it comes to troubleshooting any problems with your Hills alarm system, the first thing you want to do is make sure all of the sensors are properly connected. A Hills alarm system typically consists of a main control unit, door and window contacts, motion sensors, and audible alarms. The sensors should all be connected directly to the control panel’s terminal blocks. If a sensor is disconnected or broken, it can cause your alarm system to malfunction or become unresponsive.

To ensure that all of your sensors are accurately connected, you can start by checking the battery box located on the back of each sensor as well as any flexible connectors attached to them at the terminal blocks. Additionally, check for any damaged wires between each component and inspect for moisture intrusion in areas around windows and doors where rain could potentially enter and affect connection status from certain contact points.

If you find that any wires are damaged or disconnected, use insulated crimp caps that fit both of the wire sizes and ensure they are firmly secured in place with electrical tape or zip ties before putting them back into service. Once you have checked all connections and ensured they are undamaged, reattach them firmly at their respective terminals before testing your system again for proper functioning.


Learning how to disarm your Hills alarm system is a valuable skill. With just a few easy steps, you can easily program, test, and reset your system to provide you with the best security system for your home. In addition, understanding how alarms work can help you make the most of your Hills alarm system. Be sure to check in with a professional if you have any questions or concerns about your specific security system. With that knowledge in hand, it’s now easier than ever to make sure that your home is well-protected against potential threats like burglary and fire hazards.
