Many people do not realise the importance of evaluating their alarm system. What if you need to process an insurance claim and it is rejected? This is one of the major reasons why you need to assess and evaluate your system on a regular basis. While it is always advisable to acquire the services of alarm system installers to assist with such evaluations, there are a few checks that you can manage yourself.
The most important part of your alarm system is your panic buttons! Test each one and ensure your remote panics are working from the furthest point of your premises. This action will also test the communication to the control room.
Making sure that your system is flawless is important. The first thing to check is that you have working infra red sensors to pick up on human movement in all high risk areas. You should have magnetic contact switches installed at every door. All of the equipment that is installed should also be wired with anti-tamper circuits which protect against potential tampering 24 hours a day. All wiring involved should be concealed in a conduit.
To ensure that your transformer, radio, panel and keypad are protected too, you should have them covered by an infra red detector. Make sure that your alarm equipment and system is not in plain sight from the outside and ensure that all the attached items are properly mounted and secured by screws and wall plugs to always ensure the integrity of the system is not compromised.
It is important to check if that the mains transformer should be no less than 40VA. This must be surge protected too. If you are making use of the services of professional alarm system installers, get them to check that the system is not overloaded with too many devices on each zone and that the system has End of Line (EoL) resistors installed.
Don’t be a statistic, cover your basis now with your insurance company. For assistance with evaluating your alarm installation, turn to the professional alarm system installers in the industry – turn to Amlec.

Hi Neil, I would just like to commend one of your members on their great service, knowledge and being so humble whilst doing the installation. I will get his name wrong but maybe it was Bongi (Sbu) whom came from Peters Security to join your team. Wow he is a real asset to your company , keep up the good work he was very professional in the way he conducted business. kind regards, Jason Mclennan(PostNet Victoria Square)

Dear Jolene, Thank you to you and your team at Amlec for all the kind assistance and prompt attention during at all times. Every one of you have certainly gone above and beyond the call of duty. It was always a relief to know that I was going to get assistance and guidance during the many times that I could not reach the heirs to intervene. The service was sterling. I am however grateful that this transfer has been concluded

Hi Shonelle, Thanks for the message, much appreciated. I do hope that Barry will be able to sort out what is happening as the Olarm in principle is great and I’ve been very happy dealing with the Amlec control room and armed response teams. The control room people you have are really great and have been very patient and professional, even though this must be quite frustrating for them as well, and it is a huge relief to finally have an armed response time which is acceptable! Looking forward to feedback when available. Kind regards, Kate Watts
