why do I have to notify police of diy?

I saw that I am saposted to call police to get permit to diy. can you explain this?

Alarm permit requirements would be determined by your responding authority (your city and police). Some cities require that owners obtain a permit if they have a monitored system. Some municipalities require a permit even if the system is not monitored. Some municipalities do not require a permit.

To make sure you are in compliance with your local city code, be sure to check if there are any current permit requirements for alarm systems.

If you obtain a permit, typically there will be a permit number associated with it and this number is sometimes required by local emergency dispatch authority during alarm calls. If you have an account with suretyDIY and you use 24/7 professional monitoring, be sure to submit your permit number via secure message to our team so it can be added to your account.
