Safety tips: It’s time for a security ‘spring clean’

Buds are opening on trees, grass is turning green and there’s a definite smell of spring in the air. Charnel Hattingh, National Communications and Marketing Manager Fidelity ADT, says now is a great time to do a “security spring clean”.

“Spring should be the only thing in your garden this September, so make sure your perimeter security and home security is in tip-top condition.”

Like any other appliance, a security system will experience wear and tear and needs to be maintained regularly to ensure it works optimally.

“What’s most important is that you test your system. With life as busy as it is, it may have been some time since you last did a check. It’s quick and easy,” says Hattingh.

“Testing your alarm can be done remotely over the phone. If anything out of the ordinary is noted, a technician can be dispatched to sort out the problem. Testing should please be done at non-peak times at least once a month.”
