Security systems form part of everyday life and are often taken for granted and assumed to be working until something goes wrong, hence the reason why it is important to make sure whichever type of security system installed at your property is maintained properly. Many insurance policies stipulate that electronic security systems are maintained by an NSI accredited company.
Our experienced engineers are trained to check all aspects of the system including power supplies, standby batteries, warning sounders and detection devices to ensure every part of the installation is working correctly and meets the correct standards.
Any system maintained by an accredited National Security Inspectorate company means that a thorough checklist is followed to ensure all aspects of the installed system are checked. Not only this but a regular check by a qualified technician means that any new system requirements or building alterations that may have an effect on the area of coverage can be advised to ensure it still complies with the latest standards.
Intruder alarm systems
One annual visit for audible only systems and two service checks per year for monitored systems in line with PD6662 and BS8243 requirements are carried out.
Although one visit per year can be carried out remotely, we prefer to visit site on both occasions as we believe this provides a better customer service and makes sure that a minimum time for potential problems to be corrected can be reduced.
An intruder alarm system maintenance also covers a 4-hour response time and false alarm management.
Access Control systems are normally checked once a year and greatly benefit from it. The service visit includes checks of all electronic and mechanical locking parts to ensure they are fully operational.
An electronic check of all back up standby batteries makes sure your system operates in the event of mains failure.
A check is carried out to ensure that all doors release in the event of emergency and fire activations.
CCTV systems are normally checked once a year which includes checking all power supplies, making sure all pictures are in focus and a clean of camera lenses.
Hard drive recordings are checked to make sure the system is operating at the required recording capacity originally specified, also most importantly that the recordings are present as the worst case scenario is an incident has occurred and no recordings are available.
