Alarm Systems: Why is servicing important?
The upkeep of alarm systems is typically put-off because people believe because they’ve not had any problems, everything is fine with their system. However, this very sense of security, the peace of mind that comes from a properly functioning alarm system, is undermined by not taking appropriate steps to ensure your system is working optimally.
While the likelihood your system needs maintenance will vary based on your system components, where they located, and how your system is used overall, as an Australian Standard, an annual service is a must and highly recommended.
There are ways you can help your system do it’s job:
- Ensure sensors have a full view of the room
- Prevent insects and spiders from making homes near sensors
- Ensure your alarm’s monitoring line is active
Modern alarm systems have back-up batteries that should be replaced annually; something that is part of the service that is performed by our attending Anchor Security Service Technician. Ensuring your system is properly maintained by a skilled service technician will reduce your vulnerability, and provided the best safety for your assets and family.
If you’re experiencing problems with your system, such as intermittent beeping, you should contact the installers of your alarm system to troubleshoot the system. If you’re not sure who that is, we’d be happy to help you resolve the problem.
