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. A professionally installed security system is designed to provide users protection from loss of property; physical damage and even personal injury.  However, when local authorities are constantly dispatched in response to false alarms, this not only results in losses of both taxpayer-funded work time and money, but also cultivates a habit of hesitation among law enforcement officials when a real alarm signal is received. In the event of a true emergency, the impact that the high volume of false alarms can have on the appropriate and timely response from law enforcement, as well as the peace of mind and well-being of a community, can become increasingly problematic. False alarms continue to be an ongoing problem in the security industry, as 95% of all reported alarm calls into law...
