We recommend that you have your alarm serviced annually.

Benefits of having your alarm serviced
  • Reduce false alarms
  • Ensure your alarm is working correctly when you need it to


What we do for a service check of your alarm

  • Check and clean all sensors - check alertness and range of coverage
  • Load test battery - a low battery can cause false alarms and beeping at night, it may not hold up when mains power is off (eg power cut) or when the alarm activates
  • check sirens working – external siren may be faulty from environment
  • test smoke detectors (with smoke spray)
  • test monitoring signals
  • 24/7 alarm monitoring
  • Most alarm control panels have an on-board dialler which can be connected to a Monitoring Station.
    • The dialler is capable of monitoring all events including:
      • user identification
      • activations
      • zone identification
      • low battery
      • set/unset
      • mains failure
  • When your alarm activates, signals are sent to the monitoring station and the contact numbers that you have specified are rung in order until contact is made. Also a guard can be despatched if required
  • In a commercial situation we can check that the system has been set at night and contact you. We can also contact you if someone goes into the premises out of hours

Benefits of having your alarm monitored

  • when your alarm activates, you are assured something is done about it
  • eg – phone you, phone neighbour or relative, send a guard
  • know how many sensors have activated (one might be a false alarm, several indicates someone is moving around inside your property)
  • insurance premiums are usually lower if you have a monitored alarm
  • in a commercial/business situation – know who is going in/out and at what times
  • short term holiday monitoring can be arranged
