False Alarm Reduction Tips >
Many homes now use a broadband connection to place phone calls. This technology is known as Voice over Internet Protocol “VoIP.” Most of the time this connection works well as your home’s primary source for communications. However, when paired with some alarms systems, VoIP does not provide enough electrical voltage for the alarm system to know that your phone line is working properly. Additionally, since VoIP comes through your home internet, if for any reason you lose internet service, phone service is also lost. Before changing to VoIP service, the University Park Police Department encourages you to discuss these concerns with your alarm system provider. If you already have VoIP service, the Department recommends that you test the reliability of your system monthly.
