(a)   An alarm user shall:
      (1)   Maintain the alarm site and the alarm system in a manner that will minimize or eliminate false alarms;
      (2)   Make every reasonable effort to have a responder to the alarm system's location within one hour when requested by the law enforcement agency in order to:
         A.   Deactivate an alarm system;
         B.   Provide access to the alarm site; and/or
         C.   Provide alternative security for the alarm site.
      (3)   Not activate an alarm system for any reason other than an occurrence of an event that the alarm system was designed to report.

   (c)   An alarm user shall have a licensed alarm installation company inspect the alarm system after three false alarms in a calendar year. The Alarm Administrator may waive a required inspection if he/she determines that a false alarm(s) could not have been related to a defect or malfunction in the alarm system. After six false alarms within a calendar year, the alarm user must have a licensed alarm installation company modify the alarm system to be more false alarm resistant or provide additional user training as appropriate.
   (d)   An alarm user shall not use automatic voice dialers.
