  • Have they been inspected twice a year to ensure they are maintaining standards in both the quality of installation and business procedures?
  • Do they have the correct insurance?
  • Do they operate a 24-hour call out service and if so do they respond within 4 hours?
  • Are they able to complete a thorough security survey of your property?
  • Are they installing reliable and up to date equipment?
  • Will they issue you with a Certificate of Compliance for your system?
  • Do they meet the relevant British and European Standards?
