I was just re-reading some of the information on the HMS web page and circled back to one small paragraph mentioning the need to contact local offices to determine whether an alarm permit is needed for the system. The brief note says that permits are not required in “most” cities. I checked my local sheriff’s web page which states that I do need a permit and the cost is $20 per year. Just wondering how many users may not be aware of the need for permits in their location.
Here is a quote from the website:
Do I need a permit to use Wyze Home Monitoring Service (HMS)?
Not in most cities. Here is a detailed page about this from the city of Seattle: https://www.seattle.gov/business-regulations/alarm-system-monitoring. Some cities may require a permit for a professional home security system. Please check with your local government for specific requirements and rules.
