Door alarms

Posted by:


There are four door alarms in the library:

  • West stairwell
  • West door of the H-214 study space
  • Two in the North stairwell. One of which must be accessed from the basement side of the door.
  1. Open the key cabinet using the key from either the top drawer of Dorothy’s file cabinet or from the bottom drawer of Adam’s desk.
  2. The alarm key is located on the right side in the #9 slot of the key cabinet.
  3. To arm the door, turn the key full counter-clockwise. A red light should come on for about 10 seconds to indicate that the door is armed.
  4. To disarm or turn off the alarm, turn the key fully clockwise.
Battery Replacement

The alarms will beep intermittently like a smoke alarm when the battery needs to be replaced. Contact maintenance to have the battery replaced.
