Smart Home Security Systems Have Caused a Massive Decrease in False Alarm Police Calls

The Infinite Brief
The spread of smart home security systems has caused a massive decrease in the number of unnecessary police responses due to false alarm calls.

False alarms aren’t just irritating — they take police away from real emergencies, risk lives and make alarm systems less credible.

As an example, Dayton, Ohio police responded to 2,915 false burglar alarms in 2017. That’s down 6 percent from 2016 and 42 percent from 2013.

In 2001, the Dayton police department received about 13,820 burglar alarm calls.
