Burglar alarm systems are defined as systems installed in a house or business establishment to detect sound, movement, or intrusions, and which may or may not be connected to a monitoring station.
Repeated false alarms are considered a nuisance. Furthermore, in accordance with a by-law to cover police response to burglar alarms, increasing fines will be levied for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th false alarms within any period of 365 days, after which response service may be discontinued.
