Important Digital Life Message

Digital Life security services have not been impacted. Some customers received an erroneous message on their keypad. Additionally, we have seen some intermittent online response delays. We are in the process of addressing each of these issues and expect to have this resolved shortly.

Re: Strange message

Yup. She said it's widespread so their call volume is high bc of it. I waited 48 minutes. She said customers are still being monitored though, despite the message.

Re: Strange message

So do we all have to call to have the keypad reset or are they doing that remotely for ALL customers?

Re: Strange message

She had to do it to clear mine because I was on the phone, but I couldn't imagine everyone having to call to have it cleared. I would assume once they get their side totally fixed, it should clear everyone's messages. Knowing what I know now and that it's still monitoring, I don't think I would waste that much time waiting on hold.

Re: is the digital life service down again

I am really sorry to say but looks like when their system/app is down, they dont pick up the phone and put you on hold for ever; 45 minutes on hold now

Re: is the digital life service down again

I sent my alarm at 10:45 PM and woke up at 3 AM and it was off.  The digital panel showed Software Update.  I was furious that my alarm was off and I called AT&T Digital Life.  I could not remember my passcode so they would not help me but did advise that maintenance was happening until 7 AM.  I asked to be transferred to customer service and they said they weren't in until 7 AM.  How convenient.  I want to get rid of this system and monitoring ASAP.  Now I know why I paid more to have ADT -they never let me down, even if they were a bit more expensive. Ugh. Lesson Learned!

Re: Strange message

Thanks for the info.  I'm hanging up after 30 minutes of holding.  Kinda ridiculous.  Why can't they send push alerts or something to their customers instead of making us all wonder what's happening?

Re: Strange message

Exactly! I asked her if there was a way for customers to check if there was an outage or for us to receive a message and she said currently there is nothing in place for either option. She said we would have to call them to find out about outages. They have these forums and solution centers to try to decrease trouble calls, yet they lack outage notifications which makes their call volumes insane. Go figure.

ATT Alarms are NOT Monitored - no call or police

Being my app isn't working again, I couldn't disarm my system before entering.

So, I tried something. I entered the house and waited...

 

4 minutes after entering, the alarm went off.

I waited for a call.

No one from ATT ever called, so after 10 minutes, I disarmed from the keypad.

 

This is sold as a monitored security system. It's clearly not.
