@Kachina624    I checked with local police and in this small town don't have to have that permit for alarm system.


figured that was more for bigger cities and probably Cal.

Here either, no permit but the company (Guardian Alarm) lets the police know you have an alarm system...We have had 2 false alarms over maybe 10 years and the police came. We were never charged for it but I understand if it happens frequently they might. Live in a mid size township.


Now Guardian is saying we have to have our system upgraded because

the old 3G/4G system will soon be obsolete. They will come to our house and upgrade the system for 'free' if we sign a 5 year contract. Currently we are month to month.


Kids have RING which they installed themselves. Debating making a change.

We have a permit. Big deal. $16.
It’s mainly so the authorities have all our contact info in the event it goes off.
