False alarms are inevitable when you have a security system. One day you are going to wake up and go out the back door to let the dog out and forget to disarm the alarm; or maybe your cat will get into your room with the motion sensor while you are away; it could even happen if your security system gets hit by lighting. Most municipalities allow for up to three false alarms a year before you get fined. The problem is between 94% and 99% of all alarms are false alarms. These false alarms cost police departments over $1 billion annually nationwide. What is the solution though, because no one wants to leave their house unprotected?
