Your local municipality may require you to obtain a permit for your security system. To find out if a permit is required in your area, contact your local police, sheriff, or fire department using their non-emergency telephone number, or look up the local ordinance online.

If a permit is required, follow the necessary steps to obtain the permit. Once you have it, provide the permit number to Guardian by calling 1.800.PROTECT (1.800.776.8328). 

Please note your permit may have an expiration date and may need to be renewed with your local municipality on a regular basis.  Failure to obtain and/or renew your permit may result in municipal fines, refusal by the authorities to respond to an alarm activation, or the inability of our monitoring center to notify the authorities when an alarm activates.
