The Importance of Regular Alarm System Maintenance: Ensuring Your Safety and Compliance with Spanish Law

At Buzz Alarmas, we prioritize your safety and the reliability of your alarm systems. As a leading provider of burglar alarm systems for homes and businesses across the Canary Islands, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of service and compliance. One crucial aspect of this commitment is adhering to the Spanish law, specifically the Int/316/2011 Agenda, February 1, which mandates regular maintenance of alarm systems.

Why Regular Maintenance is Essential

The Spanish law requires four maintenance checks per client each year—three remote inspections and one on-site visit. This regulation ensures that your alarm system remains fully operational and effective, providing you with continuous protection and peace of mind.

Here’s how our maintenance schedule works:

  1. Remote Maintenance (Three Times a Year)

    • System Health Check: We perform a thorough inspection of your alarm system’s status remotely, ensuring all components are functioning correctly.

    • Software Updates: Any necessary software updates are applied to keep your system current with the latest security protocols.

    • Performance Monitoring: We monitor the system’s performance to identify and resolve any potential issues before they become significant problems.

  2. On-Site Maintenance (Once a Year)

    • Physical Inspection: Our technicians visit your location to conduct a comprehensive physical inspection of the alarm system.

    • Fault Detection: We check for any faults or issues that might have developed over time and take corrective actions.

    • Battery Replacement: If necessary, we replace batteries to ensure the system remains powered and reliable.

    • Component Testing: All components, including sensors and control panels, are tested to confirm they are working correctly.

Compliance and Peace of Mind

Adhering to these maintenance schedules is not just about following the law; it’s about ensuring your safety and the optimal performance of your alarm system. Regular maintenance helps prevent system failures and ensures that your alarm system is always ready to protect you. Additionally, many insurance policies require proof of regular maintenance to validate claims related to security breaches or burglaries.

Learn and Act

Understanding the importance of regular maintenance helps you appreciate why we conduct these checks. It's a legal requirement designed to protect you and your property effectively.
