We can also arrange system user training sessions outside of your annual visits for a price of a call out.

BAC believe in helping our customers manage their systems, through user training we can provide easy to follow instruction in how to use your system and its various functions.

3. Free Bell Box upgrades on any Intruder Alarm Maintenance

It’s Shiny, Blue and Brand Spanking new!

One of the best deterrents you can have on your property is a ‘Live’ Bell box. This shows any passing individual that your site is Alarmed and protected.

When BAC take over and maintain your Intruder Alarm system, we will also replace your existing Bell box with one of our new ‘Night Glow’ Delta Bell Boxes. This superb external sounder not only looks good, but is illuminated internally by an LED panel making it impossible to miss at night. The unit has a built-in photocell which automatically illuminates the box once the sun goes down.

This is completely free, our thank you to you for joining BAC.

Please note: Unfortunately, this offer is not available to systems with Wireless external sounders.

9. Planning through Preventative Maintenance

Less Hassle and Lasts longer

As the name suggests, the point of Maintenances is to prevent problems from arising by having your system managed properly by a professional company who has a vested interest in your safety. Through regular inspection and adjustments where required, your system should experience fewer false alarms and faults.

Fire Alarm maintenance visits occur twice a year (unless stipulated otherwise in your Fire Risk Assessment), the goal being to ensure that no false alarms occur in between those visits. As our engineers inspect your system each year, we will provide condition reports advising you if your system is in need of replacement or upgrade.

10. Free consultancy, survey and system design

Even the best equipment needs replacing at some point

If your Fire or Security system is getting tired and it’s time to bite the bullet and raise a budget for a new one, as a BAC customer we’ll happily come out to you at a time and location to suit you to discuss your needs. Once we have ascertained the remit (and if applicable insurance requirements), our surveyors will survey the site in its entirety before creating a design proposal and quote for your consideration.
