How to Reduce False Alarms

The event of a security system's alarm being inadvertently activated, or a false alarm being triggered, is a growing issue that extends far beyond inconvenience.

False alarms continue to be an ongoing problem in the security industry, as 95% of all reported alarm calls into law...
