Public Safety Team Urges Home Alarm System Maintenance
Regular maintenance of your home alarm system is essential for ensuring your family and valuables are protected.  A properly functioning alarm system alerts law enforcement of uninvited visitors in your home, and may prevent entry into your home or help catch burglars.
Poorly maintained alarm systems can cause false alarms, which can be costly.  Sheriff’s Deputies respond to false alarms and repeated responses to false alarms may result in citations. These charges can be avoided by conducting simple preventative maintenance.
Here are some ways to routinely maintain your alarm system:
  • Visually inspect all major alarm components for signs of deterioration or damage.
  • Check main power supply and battery power supply.
  • Ensure all manually operated devices, such as panic buttons and sensors, are functioning properly.
  • Test all audible warning devices such as sirens and speakers for functionality.
  • Test remote signaling equipment.
  • Readjust and repair any equipment if necessary.
  • Contact your alarm company to conduct regular tests of your system.
