Alarm Permit Requirements
California City Permit Information
Some California cities require home and business owners to obtain a valid alarm permit for monitored alarm systems.
Below is a list of cities that do require such permits (usually $20-$40/year), arranged alphabetically by county. Click your city to learn more about local requirements.
Please note: If you cannot find your city below, it means that a permit was not required at the time we published this list. However, we strongly advise that you check with your local police department to confirm permit requirements, as they are subject to change and you could face a penalty or fee for false alarms if you do not hold a permit in cities that require them.
