RESIDENTIAL FALSE ALARM PREVENTION

Does YOUR Home Security System Cry Wolf?

False Alarms Cost System Users $$$

False Alarms Waste Valuable Police Resources

"Crying Wolf" Can Delay Response

When You Really Need It

HOW CAN YOU PREVENT FALSE ALARMS?

1. Before activating your system . . .

2. Educate alarm system users . . .

3. Have your security company check and service your system regularly . . .

4. Notify your security company if . . .

5. Contact your jurisdiction's Alarm Coordinator if . .

6. Your central monitoring station should not request a police dispatch for power outages, low battery signals or loss of telephone connections.

7. Replace old police department direct-connect monitoring equipment with newer, high security monitoring technology. Dirty or wet phone lines, telephone repairmen and service interruptions do not require police response!

8. Upgrade old alarm systems to current equipment conforming to Security Industry Association (SIA) false alarm prevention standards, further reducing false alarms.

CHECK LIST

Are you and others who use the system fully how to operate your security system?

Does everyone with a key to your home know educated on its proper operation?

Do you take care to eliminate possible causes of false alarms?

Have you rehearsed alarm cancellation procedures with all who use your system to cancel accidental alarm activations?

Do you communicate with your security company regularly, advising of schedule changes, problem areas or maintenance needs?

Do you notify your local Alarm Coordinator when phone numbers or situations change?

Do you have your security system instruction book and alarm company names and telephone numbers readily available in order to call and cancel accidental alarm activations?

RESIDENTIAL FALSE ALARMS

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?

Did you know that 20% of alarm users cause 80% of all false alarms?

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?

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.

WHAT IS A FALSE ALARM?

"A false alarm is notification of an alarm to the police department when the responding authority finds no evidence of criminal offense or attempted criminal offense."

COMMON CAUSES OF FALSE ALARMS

1. Inadequate training of people allowed access to your security system (children, neighbors, cleaning personnel, real estate agents, guests, relatives, babysitters, service and delivery personnel, etc.).

2. Weak system batteries.

3. Open, unlocked or loose fitting doors and windows.

4. Drafts from heaters and air conditioning systems that move plants, curtains, balloons, etc.

5. Wandering pets.

FALSE ALARMS . . .

Take police and fire fighters away from real emergencies. This embarrassing situation endangers responding authorities and the whole community by needlessly diverting public safety resources.

Desensitizes communities to actual incidents of crime and fire and can lead to neighbors ignoring your alarm when it goes off.

Make your security system less reliable and credible.

May make you reluctant to arm your system, exposing your home and property to undetected theft or fire.

Cost citizens time, personal security and money, as many jurisdictions assess costly fines for excessive false alarms.
