False alarms are so common that in many areas police won't even respond until it has been confirmed. One of my neighbors is paranoid and has all of his windows monitored. He sets the alarm, forgets, opens a window - almost weekly. And complains because the alarm company complains about all of the false alarms.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
