It is important that you minimize your chances of causing any unnecessary alarms.
Many districts impose fines for excessive false alarms.
Check with your local police for any By-laws which apply to you.
Avoid causing false alarms. Here are a few basic points to consider.
DO NOT leave any windows open as drafts can trigger motion sensors.
DO NOT leave pets in an area where their motion can be detected.
Remove any objects that cause motion from areas with motion sensors. i.e. ballons, decorations, mobiles, hanging plants, etc.
Make sure anyone with access to the premise has the monitoring station telephone number and the premise account number.
If you trip the alarm system:
DISARM - Enter your personal 4 digit code to silence the alarm.
WAIT - Wait for the telephone line to clear.
Call the MONITORING STATION:
If your account number starts with BT call SDI 1-877-880-2877
If your account number starts with 93 call LANVAC 1-888-320-1954
NOTIFY - Tell the operator you have tripped your system. You must provide the account number to cancel any police action.
DO NOT PANIC. STAY CALM.
