Do I need to test my alarm, once it is installed?

Crime Watch strongly recommend that you test your alarm system on a weekly basis. There are 4 many simple steps

  1. Contact the Control Room and advise them you want to test your alarm system. They will divert signals to your phone, so you can see which signals are coming through. They will put you on test for 15- 30 mins
  2. Set your alarm system and then activate all the zones systematically.
  3. Make a note of any you did not receive and test them again.
  4. Contact the Control Room if there is an issue. They can log a fault report for you, with the technical department, who will contact you, or if you require immediate support – they will call the standby technician for you, who will be able to assist.
Batteries – are they guaranteed?
Unfortunately, suppliers do not guarantee batteries, this is due to loadshedding and the destructive effects it can have on the battery cells. Secondly, they do not always know when the battery was manufactured, and how long it has sat in warehouses, before reaching the supplier.
