If your alarm system isn’t listed here, please get in touch with our offices anyway as we’re likely to have the components your system requires or have access to them for fast delivery if the items are no longer stocked in Australia.
Why is Regular Alarm Maintenance So Important?
An alarm system acts an intruder deterrent in more ways than simply making a noise and alerting the police to any impending threats.
Burglars and thieves, especially those who do it for a living, know that they face a number of obstacles when coming to perform a successful break-in. The single most important aspect of effective home and office protection is to have a functional alarm system.
While it is true that alarm branding, visible alarm components and the siren itself can be effective deterrents on their own, it’s an unfortunate fact that some rely on that fact too much – and vetted criminals know that.
It’s a common occurrence that people believe their dysfunctional or deactivated alarm systems can ward off unwelcome guests, just by having it in plain view on the outside of the house and that may be true when it comes to the less experienced burglars. There are a number of tell-tale signs that they can use to accurately determine whether your alarm is active or not, and in this day and age, it’s just too risky to hope for the best.
Added to this, if you hope to insure the contents of your home or office, the companies providing cover will often stipulate that your property needs to be effectively protected against intrusion. Needless to say, if your alarm isn’t functioning properly or its completely deactivated, your chances of making a successful claim in the event of a burglary can be greatly effected.
Common Maintenance Practices
Although all aspects of your alarm systems will be examined and tested by one of our professional technicians, we will tend to focus our attention on your system’s back-up batteries and external power supplies – if you don’t have one, contact us as soon as possible to arrange for an installation.
Back-up batteries are designed to handle large power demands, but as a consequence they have relatively short lifespans and need to be inspected and or replaced at least once every year to be at their most effective, especially if they’ve been put to use through power cuts or outages in the past.
If your back-up battery fails during a power cut, your alarm system will shut down, leaving you exposed to the threat of burglary or intrusion, making it imperative that you have them checked and/or replaced regularly.
Power Surges and electrical storms can often cause unforeseen damage to various electrical components in a given property, including your alarm systems. In some cases entire systems can become corrupted and in others only certain components are effected, but we make sure to check everything, down to the wire, to ensure your systems are working at their best.
External power supplies can be anything from back-up batteries to generators and hard-wire power extensions to neighbouring boards – though the latter are getting harder to come by these days. With that, it’s important to have them assessed frequently to ensure ongoing protection when it matters most.
We’re able to provide once-off, annual, bi-annual, monthly and weekly maintenance packages to both domestic and commercial clients – just get in touch with us and let us know what you need.

What is Back-to-Base Integration?
Most modern alarm systems will have the ability to incorporate or run back-to-base monitoring. By setting this up, you will allow for our security experts to monitor your security systems’ activity remotely and in real time, making for an additional layer of protection, ease of use and peace of mind.
It is essentially most useful while you are away from the premises as you will benefit from a 24/7 overwatch service, where trained professionals monitor for any discrepancies in the movements at your property. Should anything suspicious happen, the monitoring station will contact you immediately and go on to call the police and dispatch a professional security guard if you wish.
