Combat False Alarms

no-falseEducation Is Key

We believe the key to reducing false alarms is user and installer education. Make sure when you purchase an alarm system that your TBFAA alarm professional explains how to use the system thoroughly to everyone who is going to use it. If you have questions ask them. The TBFAA alarm professional is there to help you.
