Preventative maintenance visits reduce burglar alarm repairs
Regular annual or biannual maintenance visits are crucial in our business to proactively prevent any potential burglar alarm repairs. Regardless of whether your burglar alarm system is a straightforward audible-only system or a sophisticated remotely monitored system, whether installed by us or another company, scheduled servicing is necessary to comply with the relevant British standards.
Consistent, scheduled maintenance not only minimises the likelihood of burglar alarm repairs but may also be a requirement in your home or business insurance documents, especially for all remotely monitored installations.
What to expect with our maintenance service agreements
During the maintenance visit, the intruder alarm system undergoes a comprehensive examination, including testing devices, the control panel/keypad, and batteries, to ensure proper functioning. Without effective maintenance, even the highest-quality equipment will degrade over time. Any emerging faults are addressed on-site if possible, and if needed, a follow-up visit is scheduled.
A critical aspect of the inspection involves a meticulous checklist covering physical fixings, potential loosening, corrosion, cabling, and the operation of all devices. These areas are often the primary causes of false alarms and faults leading to necessary burglar alarm repairs. Standby batteries, including those in external sounders, are checked and replaced as needed. Regular attention to these components is essential for optimal performance.
