511.01  PURPOSE.
   Although an alarm system is important as a deterrent to unlawful entry, continued malfunctioning or employee error compromise the effectiveness of the system.  Frequent response by the Police and Fire Departments to these false alarms is not only expensive, but it creates a risk of injury to the responding officer and others and a risk of damage to property.  Based upon these considerations, the purpose of this chapter is to regulate alarm supplies, subscribers, and users.
