New Alarm Users   Registered Alarm Users  False Alarm Prevention

False Alarm Prevention: The majority of false alarms are caused by user error. Alarm users can help
reduce false alarms by:

  • Make sure that everyone that uses an alarm system is familiar with how the system works.
  • Check windows and doors before activating the alarm system. 
  • Be aware of changes in the environment: (animals, design changes, seasonal decorations, plants, balloons, windows, signs, curtains, and human error). 
  • Notify monitoring facility of any changes in personal or work being done in or around the area being protected by the alarm system. 
  • Equipment should be routinely inspected, batteries changed and the system maintained by a qualified technician. 
  • Make sure that you know how your "panic button" works.
