Is it battery backed up?

Of course it is - even cheap systems have battery backups.


A lot of systems don't have battery backups, or have ineffective backups. It's a tradeoff, a result of differing philosophies. For example, IMHO an effective backup would trigger the alarm if the power were cut - but in an area with frequent power outages, that would result in a lot of false alarms.
