Its that time of the year again when a lot of businesses wind down for the holidays, while here at Watchdog we are winding up for our busiest time of year. Before you go to soak up some summer sun & enjoy time with family & friends please take a few moments to help us to properly look after your property. Remember during the pre & post Christmas period there is always an increase in property crime as the local criminals decide to get their holiday requirements by stealing them.
So a few tips from Watchdog.
Has your alarm been serviced in the past 12 months? The last thing you want is for your alarm to fail or for false activations to occur over this busy period. If you would like your alarm serviced please contact us as soon as possible to schedule as our technician’s calendars are filling up fast.
Alarm sensors can be sensitive and pick up bugs and cobwebs. To avoid false alarms have a quick clean and spray some insecticide around these.
We have a number of clients whose emergency contact names and/or phone numbers may be out of date, please ensure your key holder (contact) details are up to date with Watchdog. Give us a call or simply send us an email to update your contact information. firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you want our guards to do an internal check of your premises if answering an alarm activation? If so, do we hold keys? Are the keys current?
Please let us know when you plan to be out of town on holiday, or if your business has altered opening hours.
Are our current monitoring instructions correct for the holiday period? If you are normally telephoned if your alarm activates … but will be away on holiday you may wish to request a guard be immediately dispatched, or someone else contacted while you are away.
