SECURITY EQUIPMENT OF IMPORTANCE
Where these are fitted, doors must be firmly closed. Any draughts etc. causing doors to open when the alarm is set will generate an alarm. Consideration should be given to leaving the internal doors securely closed and not locked to facilitate activation of the system in the event of a break-in.
Door Contacts are normally concealed magnetic types for installation onto normal wooden doors. These can be substituted for either surface mounted or heavy-duty magnetic contacts should they be required.
Shock sensors are designed to detect forced entry through a certain area caused by physical attack, they do not monitor open windows or unlocked doors.
PERSONAL ATTACK DEVICE
This device is live at all times and if pressed will initiate a personal attack signal. The default programming is to activate an audible alarm. It can be connected to an Alarm Receiving Centre who will detect the alert and contact the police if requested. Unless specifically requested in writing, your system will not include Personal Attack Monitoring.
MOVEMENT DETECTORS (PIR Sensors)
The specified area of coverage by all movement detectors will be demonstrated at the time of commissioning of the system.
You should note that alterations to the physical structure, building services, furniture or any stock movement at the protected location may adversely affect the area of coverage provided.
You should check the coverage afforded by all movement detectors by means of regular walk testing between the service visits undertaken by the company. This check will be demonstrated to you by our engineers at the time of commissioning of the alarm.
It should be recognised that movement detection may not provide full coverage. In some instances, coverage may extend beyond the stated area.
Movement Detectors listed in this specification provide a level of ‘trap’ protection only and will not provide total blanket coverage in any designated area or situation
The GSM service is dependent on availability and signal strength, as GSM relies on radio signals. Changes in the local environment or within your building can have a detrimental effect on GSM signal strength. We advise you to research the signal strength within your area before purchasing a SIM card. We do not supply SIM Cards to be used with systems. SIM cards can be Pay as You Go or Monthly contracted.
INTERNET SIGNALLING/REMOTE ACCESS
You are to provide a network connection point adjacent to the signalling equipment, unless specified otherwise.
It is the customer’s responsibility to authorise and pay for the telephone connection for the system. This normally entails the block terminal to be fitted adjacent to the control equipment and ADSL filter if required.
We will use a Wireless Router Extender where Router and DVR are not closely situated. If a Wireless Router Extender can’t be used, a charge will apply to have a hard-wire connection completed. This will only be able to be determined on the day of installation and can be due to various reasons. The price for the Wireless Router Extender if charged will be deducted from the final bill.
All making good is the customer’s responsibility, although none is usually required.
Every effort will be made by our engineers to conceal cables where possible. This however does not guarantee that our engineer will be able to conceal all cables. Unless specifically stated, our costs do not include any conduits of any type.
COMPLETE AT BELLS ONLY STAGE
Please note that we consider the system complete at the “bells” only stage and that all installation charges are due and payable at the time regardless of the supply or non-supply of the British Telecom connection.
FIFTEEN MINUTE CUT OUT DEVICE
Alarm systems will automatically be fitted with a fifteen minute cut out device. Where an alarm system is fitted at the request of your insurer, you should consult them before reaching a final decision regarding this device as they may require continuous operation or the strobe light to cease or continue flashing after cessation of the external sounder.
KEYHOLDERS, PASSWORD AND POLICE FORMS
On acceptance, please advise us of a minimum of two keyholders and their relevant telephone numbers, who live within twenty minutes travelling distance from the premises should they be required to attend in the event of an alarm activation. The Alarm Receiving Centre also requires a password consisting of no more than ten characters.
The Police forms and Alarm Monitoring Application must be completed and returned to us, as these are required by the relevant police force to enable your Unique Reference Number to be obtained. We will complete any other forms for on your behalf and forward these and the fee to the Police to obtain your URN.
If you have opted to have your alarm system monitored for Police Response, due to external delays outside of our control, your system will be installed as ‘bells only’ pending the Police URN. Until the Police URN has been issued for your system, it must not be assumed that calls from your system are being passed to the police and that they are responding.
ADVISING LOCAL AUTHORITY
For an intruder alarm system incorporating an external audible device, you may be required to notify your local authority. It is your local authority who decide whether a keyholder registration is required. Notification to the Environmental Health Authority should be made within 48 hours of the alarm being operational. (Code of Practice on noise from audible intruder alarms 1981).
You also have a legal responsibility (under the London Local Authorities Act 1991) to register audible alarms with the police.
For any queries regarding our service, please contact us via email, phone or post.
