Registering Alarms in Sandy Springs
As of October 1, 2013, all monitored alarm systems in Sandy Springs are required to be registered with the City. The registration requirement is part of a City ordinance targeting a reduction in the number of false alarms. Prior to the ordinance enactment, more than 90 percent of alarm calls were false alarms.
To register your alarm system, you can:
- Call 1-855-725-7101
- Download and print the alarm registration form and fax to 877-302-9820
- Click here to register online
Once an alarm is registered, it is automatically renewed. If the property owner moves or changes alarm providers, they will need to update their information.
Filing an Appeal
Alarm users may appeal an assessment of a false alarm fine or permit suspension to the Alarm Administrator by submitting in writing the reasons for the appeal within ten (10) days of the date of the notice sent. You can email that appeal to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to: PO Box 102117, Atlanta, GA 30368-2117. Be sure to include your name, email address, alarm location, date of the false alarm, your permit number, reasons for the appeal, and any supporting evidence.
