Information

If your building is located within the City of Valdosta, you need to be aware that the City has a false alarm ordinance.  If the police respond to a third false alarm within a calendar month, the occupier of the building will receive a citation and a fine.  It is extremely important that you call our dispatcher immediately to cancel any false alarms at (229) 245-0186.  You may view the ordinance at the following link:

https://www.municode.com/library/ga/valdosta/codes/code_of_ordinances?nodeId=PTIICOOR_CH70OFMIPR_ARTIIIAL_S70-94OF

We are encouraging our customers to call our office and add a 2nd verification phone number (to be in compliance with Georgia’s new state law).  The law requires that central stations verify burglar alarms at 2 different telephone numbers before dispatching law enforcement to reduce unnecessary dispatches of law enforcement.

BEWARE:  Use caution regarding door to door solicitations.  Do NOT place your family in danger by allowing strangers inside your home to perform a “free security analysis”.  Also, if someone comes to your home claiming to be a subcontractor of our company, call 911.  We do NOT hire subcontractors!

In an effort to reduce and/or eliminate false alarm dispatches, program our dispatcher’s telephone number into your cellphone and home phone.  If you need to cancel a false alarm, call the dispatcher immediately and provide the password.  Dispatch telephone number is (229) 245-0186.

Frequent testing ensures continued reliable operation.  The alarm system should also be professionally tested and inspected annually by a trained technician.  Call our office to schedule an appointment.

Smoke detectors should be professionally cleaned and tested annually and should be replaced every 10 years. Call our office to schedule an appointment.

Aaction Alarms can monitor just about every brand and model alarm system ever made no matter who originally installed the system with little to no modification to the hardware, thus making changing over to us much cheaper than replacing hardware as most other dealers have to do.  We take-over alarms installed by other dealers about 2 or more times per week.  Our technicians are very familiar with most common brands so the time it takes us to hook-up your alarm to our monitoring station is very minimal.  If for some reason our technician determines that you have a system that has malfunctioning parts or if it happens to be one of the rare systems that we can not monitor (some dealers use proprietary systems that are manufactured specifically for that dealer and can not be used by any other company commonly), then we will give you an estimate on what it would take to change to us free of charge and you will not be billed for anything unless you decide to proceed.  If you have an alarm installed by another dealer and would like some information on changing companies, please give us a call or send us an email from the Contact Page at the top of our website.

  • Test all your alarm sensors and communications often. Call or email our office for instructions as to how to do this properly. *If you prefer, we can send a technician to do a service call for a full system inspection and test.
    *Service calls are billed on a time & material basis.
  • Replace your alarm’s backup battery every 3 years to ensure it can supply power to your system in the case of a power outage.
  • If you have wireless sensors, replace the batteries in them as well every 4-5 years to ensure they work 24/7.
  • Update your key holder names and numbers atleast once per year. Also, be sure all of your contacts have a key to your property, a code to arm and disarm your alarm, and a password for your account. Also, if you have changed your home phone number or changed telephone providers, contact us so that we may update your account and also be sure your system can communicate properly.
  • If your alarm has smoke detectors, have one of our technicians properly clean and service these delicate sensors once per year to ensure they do not malfunction. The majority of false fire alarms are caused by dust building-up inside of smoke detectors and causing them to malfunction. This can be prevented by having them serviced and inspected routinely every year. The Georgia State Fire Code requires replacing your fire protection sensors every ten years on commercial properties and recommends replacement of all smoke detectors in residential properties.
  • Check to be sure all doors have our alarm stickers placed in plain view for anyone to see easily. Also, check to be sure one of our signs are easily viewable from the street (usually located on your mailbox or on a stake in your yard near your driveway). If you need replacements, call or email the business office.
  • If you have or are planning to have any type of remodeling or construction work done on your property, remember to ask the contractor whether or not this may affect your alarm system in any way. If you are unsure, call or email us.

Statistics reveal that every 14 seconds a burglar breaks inside a home, and even though a home may have occupants, there is still a 60 percent chance of burglaries happening. These statistics show that a burglary can happen at any time.

For this reason, a home alarm system can help to secure the safety of your family and your property by discouraging the intruders and deterring break-ins.

Home alarm systems may include many different types of sensors from intrusion detection to fire protection and even home automation. Some of the most common types of alarm devices are:

  • Control Panel: This is the “brain” of the system. This metal-locked cabinet houses the battery backup and printed circuit boards. The wiring for the various sensors and keypads terminates here. Control panels are most commonly located in a closet or laundry room.
  • Keypad: Located inside the home, near the main entry door and sometimes installed in the master bedroom for additional security and convenience. Keypads are used to arm, disarm, and check the status of the security system. They also display the “zone” that is in alarm.
  • Motion Detectors: These devices sense motion inside the home. Every customer should have at least one motion detector to back-up other devices in case of a failure, as well as for added protection. Motion sensors are typically automatically by-passed when the home owner is at home.
  • Magnetic Contacts: These devices can be installed on doors and windows. They detect the “opening” of the door or window.
  • Glass Break Sensors: These sensors can be wall or ceiling-mounted. It triggers an alarm when the “frequency” of breaking glass and “shock waves” are detected.
  • Cellular Back-up Transmitter: This device uses the cellular network to transmit alarm signals to our central station. While this transmitter can be used alone to transmit alarm signals to our central station, we recommend that you also have a “hardwired” telephone line connected to the alarm control panel, so that your alarm system has two means of sending signals to our central station.
  • Smoke Detector: At a minimum, smoke detectors should be installed in hallways leading to bedrooms and must be located within 10’ of each bedroom door. You should also have at least one smoke detector installed on each floor of your home.
  • Heat Detector: Heat detectors are most commonly used in kitchens, laundry rooms, storage rooms, attics, and garages. These “rate-of-rise” sensors detect rapid increases in room temperature, caused by fires.

Installing an alarm system is your greatest form of home protection. A home burglary can devastate your family’s “peace of mind”. Today’s home alarm systems are more affordable than ever.

If burglars roam around your town and see that out of five homes, three have home alarm systems and the other two don’t, where do you think they will go?
