Yes - Over 60% of false alarms are caused by customer error. User education is the best defense against false alarms. Currently, the City of Ventura Alarm Ordinance requires that alarm owners be billed $180.00 beginning with the fourth false alarm within a one year period. The cost for subsequent violations is $180 with each occurrence after the fourth within a twelve month period.
Your alarm service agreement is a contract between you and your alarm company. Currently, the Ventura Police Department will respond to an alarm call when requested, but cannot mediate any disputes as to the responsibility for the payment of excessive false alarm fees, the condition and proper functioning of alarm equipment, etc.
All alarms installed within the City of Ventura must comply with City Municipal Code Section 6.350.
