What is a false alarm?
A false alarm is a burglar, panic, duress or robbery alarm activation investigated by the police where the responding officer finds no evidence of a criminal offense or other emergency. A false alarm can be caused by user inattention, forgetting the password, pets, weather conditions, bad batteries or faulty sensors. The alarm user is responsible for the actions of family members, employees and work crews that may affect the alarm system.
