If you are having an Intruder Alarm System installed at the request of your home insurers, it is imperative that the security company you choose is a professional company, that is to say, that they are a UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accredited organisation for example; SSAIB (Security Systems & Alarms Inspection Board).
UKAS ACCREDITED COMPANIES
These UKAS accredited companies will fit your system to the correct specification and grade as required by your insurers. As well as meeting all the requirements of the accreditation organisation, in respect of their training, their documentation and their professional insurance cover, they will also be subject to regular inspection by UKAS accredited Inspectors.
Failing to choose an accredited company could end with an insurance claim being declined, possibly leading to significant financial loss to you.
ANNUAL MAINTENANCE CONTRACTS
Further to fitting an intruder alarm system that suits your needs you should also ask your installer about taking out an Annual Maintenance Contract. This will almost certainly be a condition of your insurance company and is mandatory for police response systems.
Be sure you understand the conditions of the contract eg length of the contract and what is covered in both parts and labour. Also having your system maintained will reduce the potential for false alarms.
Any amateur installer can paint up the side of their van and fit basic alarm systems, but if you are serious about protecting your property, always use a professional security company.
