Episode Summary

In this episode, we talk with John Loud, President of LOUD Security Systems about the fight over who is held responsible for false alarms in the state of Georgia. A bill was recently introduced that would protect alarm dealers from being issued fines from false alarms that occur through no fault of their own. The introduction of the legislation comes on the heels of a more than three-year long legal battle between the City of Sandy Spring and the alarm industry over the city’s decision to pass an ordinance that holds alarm firms responsible for paying false alarm fines incurred by home and business owners.
