Alarm Bellbox Replacement:

The biggest selling bellbox in the world is a Honeywell AG6 and it’s manufacturer recommends that the whole bellbox is replaced every five years. There is a backup battery in a bell box and this battery cannot be replaced so it is best practice to replace the entire bellbox every five years.

Now this brings us on to the difference between best practice and actual practice. I do not think any bellbox in Ireland is replaced every five years as alarm repairers are generally too lazy to take a ladder out of their van and climb up to replace said item. Instead they charge consumers for reducing the sensitivity of sensors during their visit. Why is a bellbox battery important and why is it vital that it is replaced every five years or even more often? During a burglary intruders generally pull down the alarm panel and dump it into water or simply smash it. If the external bellbox is several years old the external bell will no doubt not ring. If it is newish the external bellbox will activate as soon as the system is destroyed and it will not stop ringing for at least twenty five minutes. This means that unless the intruder brings a ladder the external siren will ring if they smash the system. On the other hand if the bellbox is old the system will not ring outside once the panel is destroyed as the backup battery will be dead and will not have recharged.

Maintenance Advise:

Securigard recommend that your chosen system is serviced by one of our engineers every two to three years irrespective of whether you have a fault or not. This is to ensure batteries are replaced and also to carry out important upgrades.

We would furthermore advise customers to read their insurance policy document and to service their system according to the rules laid out in their insurance policy document. If your insurer requires your system to be serviced every day (unlikely) then it is the customers responsibility that the system is serviced as stipulated.
