Home alarm permit requirements in Phoenix

Police and fire departments monitor and respond to emergencies. In most cities, access to these resources requires an alarm permit. In Phoenix, the cost of an alarm permit and annual renewal is $17. In neighboring Scottsdale and Chandler, an alarm permit is $10, though Chandler residents over age 65 may receive a fee waiver. Glendale does not require an alarm permit.

First responders are dispatched whether it’s an actual emergency or just a system or user error. False alarms cost the Phoenix Police Department millions of dollars and thousands of man hours. Because of this, police departments charge false alarm fees. Phoenix allows for one home security system false alarm within a 365-day period. Then the city charges $96 per false alarm. See the chart above for false alarm fines in Glendale, Chandler and Scottsdale.

DIY vs. professional home security systems

One of the best ways to cut down on false alarms is to ensure your home security system is installed correctly. Security systems can be professionally installed or they can be done yourself. DIY home alarm systems with wireless sensors are ideal for older homes with older wiring, like those in central Phoenix, where some homes date back to the 1940s. However, professional installation is always a good idea if you are not comfortable working with technology.

If you live in newer subdivisions in Scottsdale or Chandler, especially on the outskirts of these cities, DIY home security and wireless security cameras may also be a good idea, and simple to install. Choose the type of installation based on the security system features and the company that you want to work with. Note that some companies only offer professional installation.

Finally, another tip for selecting a company: Think about your potential to relocate. Some local companies may not be able to move your system to another city or state, whereas a nationwide provider with a simple wireless system can.
