A Security Warrant of Fitness (SWOF) is a document produced for
you after we have completed a full service of your equipment. This
document proves that the equipment has been test to the New Zealand
Security Associations high standard and verifies that all components
have been tested and are operating effectively.
Most controlling devices and some external sirens on a security
alarm system have a battery back-up, there to ensure the system will
continue operation in the event of power being cut to the site
(either by general power outage, electrical fault or mischievous
act). Like car batteries, these batteries will require replacement
approximately every 4 years as they lose ability to recharge and
carry the required load. We will load test all back-up batteries and
if required replace them during the service - ultimately saving
you the emergency call out cost when a battery fails.
Like all electronics, security systems are susceptible over time
to corrosion of components, electrical shorts and the like. Our
comprehensive testing covers electrical integrity by testing system
loading, earthing of the control cabinet, checking connections and
identifying and removing any visible corrosion.
Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) is often only viewed when an
incident has occurred and footage is required. Non-maintenance of
your cameras and operating equipment may prevent you extracting the
quality of footage your system could produce due to dirty lenses,
altered views from knocked or loosened camera brackets, interference
across cabling causing distorted images and environmental or
lighting change in the camera location. Our technician will check
and adjust cameras as required to provide optimal view, as well as
test function of operating equipment to ensure your footage will be
there when you need it. We can check and correct any time and date
discrepancy on the DVR, check monitors are functioning, note the
length of archived footage and ensure all connections are
The primary goal is to be certain that when a security situation
presents, your equipment will operate as it was designed to do.
(Often insurance companies will offer discounts where security
alarm systems are installed - but most insurers will require
your system to be maintained in good working order for policy to be
valid.) Check your policy to see if this applies to you.
