Beware of Mother Nature
Mother Nature can cause havoc with your alarm system. Public Safety response to alarms caused by storms are considered false and may be costly in terms of false alarm fines and in some jurisdictions, suspension of law enforcement response.
You Can Tame Mother Nature
Properly designed, installed and maintained alarm systems will not generate false alarms due to lightning strikes, high winds, power surges, and power interruptions.
If you take the following steps you can reduce the chance an alarm will be triggered by a storm.
Taking Steps Can Save You
Taking the proper precautions will greatly reduce false alarms caused by storms. Reducing weather related false alarms will maintain the integrity of your alarm system, conserve valuable public safety resources, save you money in fines or fees and prevent other consequences, levied by policing jurisdictions.
