Sadly we have noticed a huge increase in serious break-in’s since the beginning of 2016. We are now seeing an average of two break-ins a week, where previously the incidence was about two a month. These break-ins are not specific to geographic location or a certain type of premises, it has been pretty much across the board.
With the increase in serious burglaries in the Northland area, alarm servicing has become a priority. We offer six monthly servicing of commercial alarms, and annual servicing for residential alarms. Increasingly, insurance providers are requesting information of servicing history, particularly if the break-in results in serious loss. We provide a certificate that systems are fully working when tested.
Keep in mind – the most effective systems are a combination of Intruder Alarms and Monitored cameras – being able to call the Police Coms Centre and say that we are watching a burglary in progress live is very effective in getting a police response!
