Security Tips and Hints

From Portland Night Patrol Services

At Portland Night Patrol Services we provide a huge range of security products and services design to give our clients peace of mind knowing that their security is in safe hands 24 hours a day 7 days a week. There are few things you can do at your home or business to reduce the number of false alarms and make your security system is operating at optimal capacity.

Security Dos

Check that doors and windows are locked before arming your security system.

Clean dust and cob webs from detectors regularly.

Leave internal doors open to maximise the area your detectors cover.

Spray some surface insecticide around your detectors (not on them) to prevent spiders etc from crawling on or in detectors causing false alarms.

Security Don’ts

Don’t leave animals in protected areas as they will trigger the alarm (unless provisions have been made for pets).

Don’t cover or block detectors.

Don’t leave internal doors open on windy days as air currents can cause false alarms

Never set your alarm off ‘to check the response’ as this will affect the response of subsequent alarms.

Portland Night Patrol Services have several packages available to take care of the maintenance of your security alarms so that they work effectively and last longer. Arrange for an obligation free assessment and we can advise you on the Portland security services that offer you the utmost security for your home or business.
