A momentary lapse in security due to poorly maintained alarm systems could be costly for your business. Clearway provides timely and reliable alarm maintenance services to prevent your business from being exposed to vulnerabilities caused by inactive, malfunctioning, or non-operational alarm systems. We implement a comprehensive and proactive alarm maintenance program to facilitate the continuous protection of your premises and assets, round the clock, throughout the entire year.
Whilst alarm systems are generally the last line of your defence, they’re a strong deterrent in the event of a break-in.
Neglecting regular, preventive maintenance for your alarm system significantly increases the likelihood of system faults or, in more severe cases, complete system failure. If your alarm system is unattended, you might only be aware of a problem once the inevitable happens – a breach of security.
The inherent risk of your business premises being breached, vandalised, or your assets stolen is already substantial. Without routine inspections and a reliable alarm system maintenance service, the potential costs associated with these risks can be excessive and will always outweigh the expense of proper alarm system maintenance.
Regularly scheduled visits by an experienced technician to inspect the entire alarm system for any visible issues or signs of wear and tear.
Comprehensive testing of all components of the alarm system to ensure they are working correctly, including sensors, control panels, communication devices, and backup power supplies.
If you operate a wireless alarm system, we will carry out an Inspection and testing of backup batteries to ensure they are fully charged and operational.
Calibration and adjustment of motion detectors and door/window sensors to minimise false alarms and maximise sensitivity to potential intruders.
Ensuring the alarm system’s software and firmware are up-to-date to address any security vulnerabilities and improve system performance.
Verification of the communication channels used to relay alarms to our alarm receiving centre (ARC) or a third-party monitoring system.
Emergency Response Testing
Coordination with response teams to test the response time and effectiveness of the alarm system in case of an actual intrusion.
Training for employees or personnel responsible for arming and disarming the alarm system to ensure they know how to use it effectively.
Maintenance reports detailing the condition of the system, any repairs or adjustments made, and recommendations for future improvements or upgrades.
Prompt response and repair services in the event of any system malfunctions or breakdowns.
If you have a monitored alarm system, ongoing monitoring of alarms and alerts, including dispatching emergency services when necessary.
Clearway offers routine alarm maintenance and inspections customised to how your alarm system is implemented and the context in which it’s used. For example, an alarm system within a secured vacant property may encounter fewer issues than one installed in a high-traffic area accessible to the public. We take such variables into account when determining the optimal frequency for your monitoring and inspections.
As a general guideline, we typically recommend monthly monitoring with a comprehensive assessment of your alarm system’s requirements once a year, building on insights gained during our initial consultation.
