Fees for False Burglary Alarms

direct alarm monitoring serviceIf you registered or renewed your alarm system with the UPPD AFTER September 1, 2005.

FALSE ALARM REDUCTION

False alarms waste valuable public resources and may result in a fine or penalty. Please use your system with care and call for maintenance when necessary. Always put your system "on test" before working on it or working near devices such as smoke detectors, heat detectors or panic buttons that could be tripped by accident.

Some examples of the causes of false alarms include:

  • Using incorrect keypad codes.
  • Failure to train authorized users.
  • Weak system batteries.
  • Failure to secure doors and windows once the alarm is turned on.
  • Wandering pets or helium balloons.
  • Weather.
  • Failure of businesses to notify monitoring company of unscheduled openings and closings.
