(a) All equipment used in installations under this chapter shall meet the applicable standards of Underwriters' Laboratories of the United States, Factory Mutual, the National Fire Protection Association or other recognized industry standard. The owner, installer or user may be required to submit evidence of the reliability and suitability of the equipment to be installed.
(b) The appropriate authority or a designated representative may, at reasonable times and upon oral notice, enter upon any premises within the Municipality to inspect only the installation and operation of an alarm system, the purpose of which is to report an emergency to the Police Division or the Division of Fire and Emergency Rescue Services. If the premises to be inspected are in a private dwelling, such inspections shall be done only between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. and only if the notice is in written form addressed to the owner and presented to a responsible adult. Under this chapter, a residence is subject to the above inspection only after three false alarms have originated from it within a six-month period. The written notice shall cite the specific false alarm history. Failure to allow reasonable inspection of such alarm system may be grounds for disconnection from an alarm system.
(c) The appropriate authority may require that repairs or adjustments be made whenever it has been determined that such are necessary to assure proper operation. Failure to make such repairs or adjustments within thirty days may be grounds for disconnection of an alarm system.
