What happens if I trip my alarm accidentally?

When we receive an alarm signal, the first step we take is to attempt to notify you of the alarm and determine whether a true emergency exists. We can call your designated phone numbers, send you a text message, and/or send an email to advise you of the alarm condition. You then have the opportunity to tell us it was an accidental alarm or to request notification of police or fire responders.
