- Keep hanging objects away from motion detectors.
- Before you arm your system, make sure all doors and windows are closed and locked.
- Regularly service and maintain your system. If you suspect something is wrong with your system, contact us immediately.
Above all, you are responsible for your alarm system. By using these tips, you can eliminate the risk of an accidental alarm and reduce false dispatches in your community.
