Thread: Poll: Should alarms be verified?

"Expert" is something like "leader". It's not a title that you can ever claim for yourself no matter what you might know or might have done. It's a title that others bestow on you based on their assessment of what you know and what you have done.

Unicorn horn is going bye bye? Damn those PETA fools! I'd better stock up. I do like their protest tactics though.

On a serious note -- Yes, a well trained armed-officer solely dedicated to "Alarm Drops" can respond much quicker then an over burdened police department -- Once the alarm is verified either way it can either be documented or elevated to local police. In the event it is a "true" alarm, an Armed Officer (properly trained of course) should be more then able to defend himself while waiting for the Police to arrive...
That and I am sure clients would rather pay our $45.00 fee then the $500.00 false alarm fee our local police department charges!

Have home owners, alarm users to be taught firstly
Well, I think the most important is to have home owners, alarm users to be taught how to properly use the alarm systems.
60%~80% false alarms are caused by incorrect operation such as PIR installation placement etc.
So, when alarm systems is installed, we should note them the cautions when it is working as well.
That is more important than verification of alarm.
