How do I register for an alarm permit for my Roost 24/7 Monitoring Service?

Your city or locality will typically require you to obtain an alarm permit for activating and operating a monitored alarm system. Please contact your local police department to obtain the details and registration process for an alarm permit.  These permits are often required to reduce the number of false alarms and unnecessary utilization of police, fire, or EMS resources. It is your responsibility to obtain a required alarm permit as failure to register may result in fines or refusal by an emergency agency to respond to an alarm at your premises. 

When filling out the application, the form may ask for the following contact information:

Security/Alarm Company:
1250 Borregas Ave.
Sunnyvale, CA 94089

24/7 Professional Monitoring Company/Dispatch Center:
911 Washington Ave.
Suite 230
St Louis, MO 63101

How do I add the Roost Monitoring Service operator number to my list of “contacts’ on my mobile phone?

Create a new contact on your mobile phone for “Roost Monitoring Service” and add the number:  610-304-4016.  When the dispatch operator calls you during an emergency it will be easily identified in your caller ID.

What happens when the live operator calls one of my Emergency Contacts following an emergency alarm situation?

In the event of alarm activation, the emergency dispatch operator may call your Emergency Contacts if they fail to get in touch with the primary homeowner. If you would like them to be able to cancel police dispatch due to a false alarm, they must provide their name and mobile number which needs to match what you have set up previously in the Roost mobile app for each contact.
