    How can I make sure I don't set off false alarms?

    Security Specialists

    What steps can be taken to ensure that I don’t set off false alarms? It seems to happen a lot; a windy night alone can set the alarm off! Maybe I need a new one, what do you think?

    "The alarm firstly needs to be programmed to suit your needs correctly.
    Having the correct pir fitted also could help this, pet-friendly ones etc
    The wind setting the alarm off points towards the external siren not being fitted properly and the wind is activating the tamper( it thinks somebody is tampering/opening it)"
