Power Cut Affecting Alarm Systems: Check Your Battery
As most government messages seem to point to the fact that there may well be more power cuts this winter than normal. This being the case, it is wise to try to minimise the affects of a power cut on your home.
One very important place to look for potential issues is your alarm system.
All alarm systems have back up batteries – these batteries are used in the event of a power cut. If the battery is old or not working correctly, this will cause the external battery to trigger the external bell, which you wont be able to stop because the keypad wont operate without power.
This will happen even if you don’t use the alarm system – a dormant alarm system will activate if the battery is low and needs to be replaced.
This all can be avoided by simply calling ESP Security to check your alarm system and test the battery.
