Preventing False Alarms From Your Home Security System
Installing a new home security alarm system is a good step for keeping your home safe. It is important that everyone in your household understands how to use the system and what to do if it is triggered accidentally. 10 to 25 percent of the calls to local police are false alarms from home security systems. In some cities, police departments charge the homeowner for these false alarms because they take up valuable resources that could be used elsewhere in the city.
