Preventative maintenance visits reduce burglar alarm repairs
Annual or biannual maintenance visits are an important part of our business when preventing any burglar alarm repairs. Whether your burglar alarm system is a simple audible only system or a complex remotely monitored system, installed by us or another company, servicing will be required by the relevant British standards.
Regular scheduled maintenance will reduce burglar alarm repairs and because of this may well be a stipulated in your home or business insurance documents, and this certainly is the case for all remotely monitored installations.
What to expect with our maintenance service agreements
During the maintenance visit, the intruder alarm system, including devices, control panel / keypad and batteries are tested to ensure correct functioning. Without effective maintenance,, even the best equipment will deteriorate over time. Any developing faults are rectified on site if possible or a return visit will be scheduled.
An important feature of the inspection is the strict checklist of all the physical fixings, loosening, corrosion, cabling and the operation of all the devices. These are normally the main reasons for false alarms and faults causing burglar alarm repairs. The stand-by batteries including external sounders and fuses within the system, which are replaced as necessary, these need regular attention to function correctly.
