5 quick tips for proper alarm use

1. Your alarm is not a replacement for calling 9-1-1
1. Only use a panic or robbery button when you can't call 9-1-1. When you believe you need a police officer to respond your alarm system is not a replacement for calling 9-1-1. Pushing a panic button when you think you heard a prowler will be a much lower priority call than if you called the police directly. The panic button should be used when you can not make that call.
Know how to cancel a false alarm
2.If your alarm goes off don't leave until you've spoken to your alarm company.
