Texas Legal Requirements
You may be required to register your alarm with your local authorities or obtain a permit so that emergency personnel can be dispatched to your home. Please contact us or contact your local authority to receive more information regarding permit requirements. The municipality may impose penalties, revoke or suspend a permit in relation to false alarms.
Additionally, pursuant to Sec. 702.134 of the Texas Occupations Code, a municipality may impose and collect a reasonable charge in connection to monitoring services provided by the municipality; and reasonable inspection fees for services that cause at least 5 false alarms in a 12-month period. The municipality may also require discontinuation of the service or device that causes at least 5 false alarms in a 12-month period due to faulty equipment or mechanical malfunction, where false alarms caused by human error or an act of God are excluded.
