LEARN MORE ABOUT ALARM PERMITS

Do i need an alarm permit for my security system?

Installing a security system in your home or business is perfectly legal and an important step to secure your property.  However, if you want a central monitoring station to dispatch the proper authorities on alarm signals, your local governmental agencies may require you to obtain a valid alarm permit.  Alarm permits became a requirement for many cities due to the numerous false alarms caused by user error and faulty sensors. All these false alarms placed tremendous expenses on local police and fire departments which caused state and local agencies to require alarm permits.  

Alarm permit requirements vary depending on the city you live in and are granted either on a one-time or yearly basis.   American Alarm Systems recommends that you check with your local police and fire departments directly so that you fully understand their requirements.
