Silent Alarm System Law and Legal Definition

A silent alarm system refers to an alarm system that, when triggered, does not make noise but instead shows an interruption in a circuit on the control panel at the alarm company's office.

The following is an example of a case law on silent alarm system:

The surveillance cameras for the silent alarm system are movable, and their only connection with telephone company lines is that they are activated by the same button which an employee may push to signal an alarm to the Public Safety Building. [Metropolitan Bank of Syracuse v. Department of Assessment, 57 A.D.2d 1055 (N.Y. App. Div. 1977)].
