Create the habit the habit of regularly testing your safety and security systems:

  • Test your alarm system and electric fence once a month.
  • Test fixed and mobile panic buttons once a month.
  • If you have a sensor-operated alarm, go from room to room once a month and ensure that movement registers throughout your house. Walk around each room to check that the red light is visible on the sensor.
  • Regularly check the batteries in your alarm system, wireless beams and CCTV. Batteries have a limited life span and need to be replaced every few years.
  • Check that your cameras are positioned correctly and clean the lenses to ensure good, clear footage.

Remember to check your security system:

  • After any scheduled maintenance workers visit your home. No matter what they’re working on, it’s best practice to ensure they haven’t interfered with your security accidentally.

  • After you’ve had a house sitter, babysitter or pet sitter in your home. They may have made changes to your system, such as disabling alarms for their own easy access.

  • After any significant changes are made to your internet connectivity or provider. If your security system uses the Internet, those changes could affect the responsiveness of your system.

  • When renovations are completed, whether it’s inside or outside – you may have accidentally altered something, like camera angles.
