Alarm systems <br />include, but are not limited to, direct dial telephone devices, <br />audible alarms and proprietor alarms. Devices which are not <br />designed or used to register alarms that are audible, visible, or <br />perceptible outside of the protected building, structure or <br />facility are not included within this definition nor are <br />auxiliary devices installed by the telephone company to protect <br />telephone company systems which might be damaged or disrupted by <br />the use of an alarm system. <br />"(b) "Applicant" means a person, firm, or corporation who or <br />which files an application for a permit as provided in this <br />chapter. <br />
