ECV Essential Climate Variable is the most effective program ever developed to reduce police dispatches to invalid alarms. It requires the alarm-monitoring central station to make two telephone calls in response to an alarm activation to try to verify the need for response and recommends that the second call be made to a cellular phone.
ECV has reduced the need for official response by 25 to 50 percent in some jurisdictions, says SIAC. SIAC is now launching a national initiative to encourage alarm companies and law enforcement to adopt the practice.
