We service our cars and update our computer software, so why do we often neglect to maintain our security equipment? Your security system is an active piece of technology that needs maintenance to function optimally. This article explains the numerous benefits of security maintenance, plus an explanation of which systems need to be maintained.

Why you Should Invest in Security Maintenance
- Prevent System Breakdowns
We know that prevention is better than cure. The saying is the same for your security systems. Regular maintenance can help to prevent annoying and alarming security breakdowns. It can also minimise false alarms by ensuring that your system is functioning optimally.
- Insurance & Legal Compliance
It is important to maintain your security system so that you are compliant with health and safety laws and insurance obligations. An example of this is related to automated security gates; if you fail to maintain the system and it causes damage or injury, you are liable for damages.
- Health and Safety
Think back to the reason why you installed security measures. Regardless of whether you’re a school, government site, medical centre, or business, it’s likely that your primary reasons were safety, security, and protection of your building and occupants. If you don’t maintain your systems and they don’t function properly, then you are risking the health and safety of your site.
What systems need to be maintained?
CCTV: CCTV deters criminal activity and antisocial behaviour and is an ideal 24/7 security monitoring system for premises of all sizes. CCTV systems should be professionally maintained at least once a year, as well as having monthly maintenance checks. To make this regular maintenance easier, we’ve created a CCTV Checklist that can be used to assess all aspects of your system.
Access Control: Like CCTV, access control systems require one professional maintenance check per year. If you’re experiencing problems with your system, you can use our Access Control Checklist.
Gates and Barriers: Security gates are classified as ‘industrial machinery’ by law. You are responsible for maintaining your security gate and are liable for any damage or injury the gate causes. For example, if you fail to maintain your gate, the mechanism is not maintained, and the gate dysfunctions, you are responsible for any potential damage.
Fire Alarms: Fire alarms should be professionally checked two to four times per year. When was the last time you checked yours?
Other Security Measures: If you have other security measures, contact our team to learn about their maintenance requirements.
