Annual Routine Maintenance Inspection

All Banham intruder alarms can be designed to comply with DD243, EN50131-1/PD 6662 and the requirements laid down by the National Security Inspectorate (NSI). It may be a requirement of your insurance policy that your system is covered by a routine maintenance contract to reduce contents insurance premiums.

Our alarm maintenance contract options can be designed to suit all needs depending on the system chosen.


For systems provided without remote signalling (bells only).


For systems connected to the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) as it is a Police and NSI requirement. One visit can be remote (providing the system is not Grade 3).


Providing free services for the maintenance of your intruder alarm system 24 hours a day. This includes parts, labour and a lifetime guarantee on systems connected to the ARC on a full Police monitored contract (subject to conditions).

Automatic Remote Maintenance (ARM)

By using ARM Banham can verify that your entire security system is fully functional, providing complete peace of mind. You can choose one of your two yearly maintenance inspections to be carried out using ARM.

ARM is secure, convenient and enhances your security by constantly checking the electrical status and functional capability of your alarm system. At a pre-set time, the control panel calls the host server and uploads a full status report of your system. This report is available to you if requested so you can see that your system is always operating at its optimum level.

The correct operation of all signalling equipment to the Alarm Receiving Centre is reassured along with a full test of the external sounders. All detectors are also regularly checked to ensure your complete protection and regular reminders to walk-test the system are given.

ARM software incorporates both DD243 and EN 50131-1:2006 / PD 6662 (BS:8243:2010 released July 2010 to be implemented in July 2012) to conform with the current Police and European requirements on false alarm reduction and system design.
