Alarm Permit Applications and Fees: What does your City Require?

Some cities require homeowners and/or business owners to apply for an alarm permit. Typically, an application must be filled out and mailed along with an annual fee, all within a month of having the alarm installed (Note: fees and submission times vary widely by city). Luckily, most applications are available for download and print, or as online forms to submit. Unfortunately, it can be an incredible hassle to search a city’s website for such a specific document.

Capital Connect has compiled a comprehensive list that provides several links to specific city websites that detail the alarm permit process, as well as a direct link to a PDF of the application or online form. Since most cities also require you to pay an annual fee when first registering your alarm system, we included that information as well.

Feel free to bookmark this page to return quickly in the future. If you don’t see your city listed here, please tell us in the comments section, and we will do our best to find and link to the information and application if possible.
