Every six months we are inspected by NSI - the most respected security system accreditation body in UK.
It was a proud moment for our team when we were awarded NSI GOLD status in August 2017 and we are pleased that our install technical audit today went very well.
Huge praise to our team and thank you to our customers for their custom and continued support.
No TV, no boiling the kettle, no house or street lights and a race against time to save the food in the freezer - a few common problems that occur when there is a power cut in your neighbourhood. To top it off, somewhere in your street there is an intruder alarm siren sounding during the power cut - you’ll notice this most during the middle of the night! - but how can it sound without electricity?
An intruder alarm system’s main source of supply comes from normal mains electricity, but the alarm control panel has a built in battery that will kick in and power the alarm system in the event of a power cut.
At least that’s what should happen if the system has been regularly serviced, a well maintained alarm system should not sound during a power cut. Apart from a warning light/beep/notification on the alarm control panel or keypad informing the user that the electricity is off, the alarm system should work as normal for a good number of hours on battery power.
With security in mind I won't go into technical details how - but during a power cut, intruder alarm systems which also have a dead control panel battery will sound.
So a very high percentage of the time when you hear an intruder alarm system sounding during a power cut it usually means the alarm’s control panel battery needs replacing. Control panel back up batteries should be replaced after a maximum period of 5 years
With various codes and security measures built into alarm systems and with safety a high priority alarm control panel batteries should be replaced by trained security system engineers. The good news is that a new battery and even throwing in an alarm system service can cost as little as £50.00.
A small price to pay for not only a good night’s siren-free sleep but also for security and protection of you, your loved ones and your property.
A new year and new running goals to meet in the coming months.
Enjoyable training run despite it being -3C. #stirlingmarathon #running #fitness #stirling

"So you doing any more marathons this year Scott?" was the question from a work colleague as it then suddenly dawned on me that yes I am and that the next one is now less than 4 months away.
After Edinburgh in 2016 and Stirling in 2017 it is once again my home town marathon that I have signed up as I look to complete marathon number 3.
My base level of fitness is reasonably ok but I always feel I need to challenge myself to not only give me the motivation to train and improve my fitness but pushing and extending the boundaries of our comfort zones is the way to expand our capacity to live and experience life.
It's similar in business as it's always easier and more comfortable to stay within the zone that you know and have experienced but more pleasure and better rewards are usually waiting for us if we commit to giving that extra usually uncomfortable to begin with push that's required to get us into that better more rewarding zone.
Thanks to my colleague who's now reminded me that it's time I planned those long training runs.
Each day and each job our goal is to provide a professional and efficient service to customers who put their trust in us to carry out their electrical and security system work. Of course there are a small amount of times due to varying reasons when our service dips below our acceptable standard and in those circumstances we do our best to learn and improve but at the same time it is satisfying to receive feedback like below from customers, as during the hustle and bustle and high and lows of everyday business positive feedback from customers gives us the boost and acknowledgement that our hard work and our systems in place are providing a positive experience for our customers.
Very impressed by the service I have received from Stirling Alarms. The time taken from my initial call to completion of the work was so short and that was especially good given that it was the week before Christmas and I had been very worried about not having an alarm in place over the holiday period.
While some of our services are available 24/7 our office team were back today for their first working day of 2018 and they were pleased to be available to book in a number of security system installation jobs as well as have our engineers attend and repair several alarm faults.
It wasn't only our security system team who were busy our electricians were also on hand to attend and repair several faults and carry out a number of pre-planned jobs.
This year we would love to hear from you if you require new alarm, cctv, door access or electrical systems while we can also repair and maintain existing systems.
It's not only customers we look forward to hearing from as we have a number of job vacancies open at present and want to hear from electricians and security system engineers who will meet our criteria and join our team as we look to increase our capacity.
More details of our vacancies can be found here.
