Preventing false alarms

 

False alarms are most often caused by user error, system malfunction, or environmental triggers. There are many tips and techniques that are proven to reduce occurrences of false alarms:

 

  • Train all users (children, babysitters, custodial staff, etc.) on the proper use of the system.
  • If a system malfunction or service issue is the cause, contact your alarm company to schedule an evaluation and/or repair.
  • Be cognizant of environmental triggers that may activate your alarm and take measures to reduce their impact. These include balloons in a showroom or drapes blowing in the wind.
  • Pets that are free to roam throughout the home or business have been known to trigger motion detectors. Ask your alarm company about installing pet-friendly devices or modifying the current system design to accommodate pets.
  • Ensure that your alarm company has up-to-date contact information for you.

 

Stay safe & help prevent false alarms. Register your home or business alarm here today.
