False Alarm or False Dispatch There is a difference between a false alarm and a false dispatch request. – False alarms occur frequently. – False dispatches are false alarms that end with a response to the alarm site.
USER ERROR? 77% of all false alarms and false dispatches are due to user error. – Mostly entry exit issues – Many due to call waiting – ECV potential to resolve 60% of these dispatches – CP-01 Panels, 40% fewer signals
Making a Simple Task Difficult Wrong terminology End of the job End of the day Customer wants you gone No consistency in training
Use “Plain” English On and Off versus Arm and Disarm Cancel instead of Abort Bypass instead of Shunt Avoid being too technical
I’ll Equipped and Not Prepared Technicians – Poor communication skills We don’t hire technicians for communication skills – Not comfortable talking to people Need to be confident, open and friendly – Language issues Technical people tend to “assume” that everyone has certain basic knowledge but in truth they won’t even ask a question if they feel “stupid”
Concept of Delay Zones Hardest thing for customers to grasp – Too many arming features Home Away Instant Bypass Interior zones
Never Assume Biggest training failure is to assume that the customer understands anything. – Go over the check list in detail with the customer – Never touch the keypad during instruction, have the customer use the keypad – Go through the alarm tips on every installation.
Phone Access A huge problem with non residential alarms is after hours access to a telephone. – Phones are forwarded to an answering service. – No phone with an outside line that monitoring station can call to verify. – Failure to use all of the panels features. Each user has unique code Open and close reports identify problem users.
