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/intrusion the alarm is raised. It can also help to reduce false alarms, which can cost businesses much money in lost work hours and even fines.
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. If you are an employer, this will be a legal responsibility. Having an annual service and maintenance contract for your alarm system in place 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.
Effectively, even without a significant fault with the alarm system being identified, your business may end up paying hundreds of pounds for each visit. We often hear from people who have forgotten their intruder or fire alarm system’s password. Or, our engineers arrive to find that a battery simply needs replacing. With a comprehensive maintenance contract this would not be a problem and if it ever did happen, you would not be charged.
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 WLS 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.
