The Importance Of Maintaining Your Intruder System

By March 4, 2020 News No Comments

After investing in security for your home and an intruder system, you may feel that you are safe and secure. However, there is still the importance of maintaining your intruder system that you need to consider.

Why would you invest in an intruder system and then not check it still works? Regularly maintaining your intruder system means that you know it is doing its job and keeping you safe if the worst were to happen and an intruder tried to access your property.

Just as you regularly maintain your car with petrol, windscreen washer, new tyres and an annual MOT, you need to make sure your intruder alarm is maintained correctly too. In this blog post, we look at the importance of maintaining your intruder system.

Longer Guarantees

Once your standard alarm system guarantee expires, you won’t be covered on any part replacements; no matter how big or small they may be. However, when you have a contract to maintain your intruder system, the parts and labour charges are covered – and you’ll know that your intruder system is in good working order.

Priority Response

Every now and again, a faulty intruder alarm will go off in the middle of the night for no reason. Things like power cuts or power surges can often be a reason for this. In some cases, it can be impossible to turn the alarm off, and before you know it, you are everyone’s least favourite neighbour in your area. If you have a maintenance contract in place for your intruder system, it is less likely the intruder alarm will develop a fault. You will also have someone you can call to repair the alarm for you, without having to call round to find someone in the middle of the night that may or may not know your intruder system and could charge the earth for the service.

Peace of Mind

Regularly maintaining your intruder alarm gives you the peace of mind that your intruder alarm works. Whether you are going to bed at night or off on holiday for two weeks, you know that your intruder system works and it will keep your property safe and secure. If you do not correctly maintain your intruder system, the first time you know it doesn’t work is when someone breaks into your property, and you don’t know about it until after the incident.
