Alarms, permits and bylaws
Information on municipal alarm permits.
Do I require a municipal alarm permit for my alarm system?
It depends on your municipality. Several cities in Canada have local bylaws that outline specific regulations about police response, security system permit registration and false alarm fines. As an ADT customer, it is your responsibility to be familiar with the local bylaws, to complete the necessary forms and to cover any false alarm fines.
Please see the next section for bylaw information in your city. If you do not see your city listed here and/or would like more information about regulations in your area, do not hesitate to contact our Customer Experience team at 1-844-887-7479. We’ll be glad to help out.
