Avoiding false alarms is important because alarms are noisy and false alarms often lead to fines. Penalties for false alarms vary by locale. In some cities the police and other emergency personnel charge hefty fines whenever they’re dispatched for a false alarm.
A couple of measures help protect against unneeded emergency response:
- By law an alarm company needs to give you 30 seconds to disable the alarm. To bypass the 30-second rule, you can add a panic button.
- If an alarm is triggered, you’ll have the opportunity to tell the monitoring company that no service is needed through a in-built voice communication system.
