The importance of servicing and maintenance of intruder, fire, access control or CCTV systems.

By April 23, 2018No Comments

Fire alarm servicing and maintenance is arguably as important as having a fire alarm system in the first place. There is little point in owning a state of the art fire alarm if it is not going to alert you to the outbreak of a fire. Regular fire alarm servicing will ensure that the fire alarm works when you need it most. Faulty fire alarms put people and properties at risk and invalidate insurance policies. You could easily find yourself in a situation where your building has fire damage and the insurance company are not willing to pay out. Without regular check-ups by trained engineers, even simple things like the need to replace batteries could go unnoticed and cause serious issues.

The majority of Jensen Security and Fire Systems clients take out a fire alarm servicing and maintenance contract. This is not a requirement of us providing you with a fire alarm system, but it is if you require fire alarm monitoring. We will come and inspect your fire alarm on a six monthly basis. During this process, we will thoroughly test your fire alarm, ensuring that everything is in working order and preventing and future potential issues.

If you are looking for fire alarm, intruder alarm, access control or CCTV servicing or a repair, Jensen Security and Fire Systems can meet your needs. As well as being BAFE certified and NSI Gold accredited, we have many years’ experience in the electronic fire industry. Our engineers undergo regular training and have the skills and knowledge to test and repair most fire alarm models.

The main benefit of signing up for an annual intruder, fire, access control or CCTV system service and maintenance contract is the thorough and regular inspections you will receive. Regular assessments and alarm system services help to ensure that your intruder alarm, fire alarm, access control system, or CCTV installation is kept in full working order and that in the event of a fire or burglary or intrusion the alarm is raised. It can also help to reduce false alarms, which can cost businesses significant loss in finance and working time.

With regular service and maintenance, potential problems can be spotted in advance, preventing any loss of fire or intruder alarm coverage and ensuring your property and staff are protected at all times. An annual service and maintenance contract for your alarm system will reduce the headache and financial cost of organising regular testing whenever you need one. When you sign a contract with an NSI approved electronic security installer like ourselves, we take care of that responsibility for you.

​Without an alarm maintenance contract, if you request a service engineer, you will inevitably have to pay a call out charge. That company or engineer will also not be contracted to provide a suitable response time. So you could end up waiting all day – or worse – all night, with an alarm ringing or an access control system that will not let anyone in or out of a building. Sign up for a contract and you have a company you know and trust waiting to take your call.

All commercial premises require insurance and your insurance provider may set a lower premium if an experienced and fully-accredited NSI Gold approved company such as Jensen Security and Fire Systems is responsible for your fire or intruder alarm service and maintenance. We can provide a security or fire alarm system to suit most requirements and budgets and our maintenance contracts are renewable annually.
