The Roost Security Keypad is primarily used to arm and disarm the Security360 Service.  The keypad works with the Roost SmartBase and other security sensors to provide secure coverage for potential intrusion threats to your property. The keypad integrates with the Roost 360 mobile App to ensure alignment of system state (armed or disarmed).  In addition, the keypad provides visual and audio status indicators of the security system and includes a panic alarm 2-button activation to immediately dispatch emergency services through the 24/7 monitoring service. Roost will send alarm signals to the 24/7 monitoring center for verification and dispatch in case of an intrusion alarm when home is armed.
