False Alarm Troubleshooting Guide

  • Did you know that the three major causes of false alarms are (1) user errors, (2) installation or service errors, and (3) equipment failures?
  • Did you know that more than 80% of false alarms are related to preventable user errors?
  • Do you think alarmed locations are entitled to unlimited police response?
  • Do you think you are at greater risk when police, accustomed to responding to chronic false alarms, respond to a real emergency at your location?

Wasted Time

The reality is that police resources are limited and should never be wasted. Thousands of police patrol hours are spent investigating alarm reports that turn out to be "False Alarms".

Alarm companies and alarm users must be responsible for the use and maintenance of alarm systems to help ensure prompt police response when an emergency really does exist.
