After the 2G Sunset, what’s next? Continuing in our series on what alarm companies can do to take advantage of the sunset provisions, we look next to the SIA/CP-01 standard.
Here’s what you can do at no cost while you are at a customer’s premise.
First, there should be no one-plus duress codes in any alarm panel. Manually activated alarms should be of dual action.
Check the entry-exit delay periods. Exit delays should be a minimum of 60 seconds and entry delays no less than 30 seconds. This helps address 77% of all false dispatches, which of course is user error.
Check the swinger shutdown feature – it should be set between 2 and 6.
Stay tuned to our blog for what’s next on the 2G Sunset and how our business can benefit.
