Electronic Alarm Verification can Speed Alarm Response Time and Help Minimize False Alarms

It’s critical for alarm systems to summon a prompt response in the event of an intrusion. But it’s an unfortunate reality that many of the signals sent by intrusion protection systems to the central monitoring station are false alarms. A variety of factors can cause these false alarms—from pets or HVAC systems to users who are unfamiliar with system operation.
