President Phil Lagravinese commented that the idea behind the symposium was to show the authorities that the industry is concerned about the false alarm issue.
â€œWe need to discuss in an open forum what our options are to work collectively to reduce false alarms,â€ he said. â€œWe need each other. This isnâ€™t going to be successful if we donâ€™t work together hand-in-hand with the authorities.â€
Ron Walters of the Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC) spoke about Enhanced Call Verification (ECV).
The association rated the event a success and plans to continue the dialogue with the local authorities.
