Default Permit needed?

We are considering installing a security system (probably Simplisafe) and I'm wondering if I need to get a permit from Sumter County? I know some police departments, in other parts of the country require one.

If I do need one, any idea who to call?

Thanks.

You don't have to obtain a permit to install a security system whether monitored or not.

Don't forget to check with Architectural Control Committee. Otherwise, you'll have the ACC police after you!

I'm hoping that you are being facetious. I can see no reason for the ARC to be involved with something that is not visible from outside the house. Now, if I decide to install 50 cal gun towers, that's another matter.

I did not get a permit.

But I also had issues in 2nd grade not coloring within the lines.

BTK is correct. No permit is required. I asked before having mine installed.

Glad to know I'm not the only one with that problem. Still can't stay within the lines - just ask my grandson!

FYI - if a permit is required for any work, the people doing the work should obtain the permits, not you! If they say you have to do it, find another company who is willing to do their job.

I asked the company and then the county.
Trust but verify.

My wife moves slowly and uses a walker. She deserves as much warning as I can give her. I had the system installed after we had 5 breakins within a short distance.

Why on earth would anyone question what someone else wants, or might feel secure with in their own home?

Most police departments require your alarm system to be registered with them but not get a permit. Call your local police department.
