Intruder Alarms

Intruder alarm maintenance is essential to ensure that your alarm system activates when there is a break-in and to deter intruders. Like anything with electrical components, these need to be tested to ensure they are all working effectively. This means any potential defects can be identified early and a malfunction can be avoided.

At Clarion, we believe that an ongoing program of maintenance inspections is a central part of your operational strategy to ensure the continued performance of your intruder alarm system.

An intruder alarm system should have a complete maintenance visit every year. If you have your intruder alarm monitored, this then increases to twice a year, however, one of these maintenance visits may be done remotely.

Depending on your maintenance agreement, we are able to offer both planned and reactive maintenance ensuring that your system is operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year.
