False alarms are a common occurrence with many home and business security alarm systems. Every time there is a false alarm, the property owner, security company, police, fire, and other emergency response personnel have to respond. Therefore, it is not only inconveniencing, but also a waste of resources.

How to avoid false alarms

1.    Consumer Education & Training

Most false alarms are as a result of improper operation by users, due to lack of training. For this reason, home and business owners must ensure that everyone who is authorized to operate the fire and burglar alarm system receives adequate training, with regard to arming andbusiness security disarming the system. In addition, users must be sensitized on the need to avoid obvious mistakes such as forgetting to disarm the alarm system when they enter the premises.

2.    Installation and Testing

The performance of a home or business security system depends largely on how it is installed. Finding a reliable home and business security company such as I-Tech Security to plan, design, and install your alarm system is one way of avoiding problems such as false alarms. On the other hand, most security alarm systems providers allow for periodic testing to check if an alarm system can communicate with the central monitoring facility. The scheduled testing is also essential in detecting any potential problems that may lead to the alarm tripping accidentally.

3.    Routine Inspection and Maintenance

Inspecting the alarm system regularly enables the property owner to identify system components that might require repair or replacement. Examples are dirty or broken motion sensors and smoke detectors, which need to be fixed as soon as possible.

4.      Remote Activation/Deactivation

Security alarm systems come with a standard keypad, which acts as an interface between the user and the system. The keypad allows users to configure, arm, and disarm the alarm. Fortunately, modern alarm systems come with multiple access points including remote controls and mobile apps. The property owner can use these device to arm/disarm the system, especially when other users are unable to deactivate a false alarm.

5.    Pets

Homeowners with pets should invest in pet-friendly motion sensors to prevent the animals from tripping the alarm.
