False Alarms Are Annoying
False alarms can be a serious annoyance to a business and its community.

Siemens offers a No False Alarm Guarantee on its multi-criteria ASAtechnology detectors which states that Siemens will pay fines as a result of a false alarm from an ASAtechnology detector that was purchased from a Siemens branch or authorized Siemens fire product distributor and was properly applied and maintained.
