Do I need a permit to install a home alarm system?

Yes, you do need a permit to install a home alarm system.  The contractor who is installing the alarm must apply for the permit.  
If the alarm system is for security only, an Electrical Permit is needed. Even if it is a wireless system, an electrical permit is needed. If the alarm system is for security and smoke detection, an Electrical and Fire Permit is required.
 Bring completed Electrical Permit Application and /or Fire Permit Application to the Division of Inspections, Room 305 at the Municipal Building.
Hours:  Mon-Fri 8:30 am to 4:30 pm
