How can I prevent False Alarms?

  • Make sure that you immediately report your false alarm to your alarm company, so they can cancel police response before arrival at your home or business.
  • Ensure that everyone in your household or business has been properly trained on how to use the alarm system.
  • Work with your alarm company to keep emergency contact lists updated and make sure the system is inspected at least once a year.
  • Avoid decorations or helium balloons that might cause the alarm system to be activated.
  • Heavy winds might cause doors to open and alarm systems to be activated. You can prevent this by making sure all doors and windows are properly closed and/or locked and that all latches and locks are in working order.
