Alarm System Takeovers

Home Alarm Takeovers

Alarm takeovers can take place when you decide to switch security providers at your home or business. This could be due to a poor service received, rising costs or inherited system during a move. We can take over a number of security systems including CCTV, access control, and burglar alarms.

The process of taking over an existing security system happens after a full review and inspection of the existing equipment during a thorough survey of your home. After further assessments, we can make a decision about the best approach. This includes ensuring that there is adequate and sufficient coverage with a possibility for additional features if required.

If you own a monitored alarm system, this service can be reviewed and discussed during our visit with a potential for providing an up-to-date equivalent.

Home/Business Alarm Maintenance

Regular maintenance visits include 2 services per year of your system, 1 of the services will be done remotely by utilizing our sophisticated software, and the other will be a physical on site visit by our expert engineers.
