Have Questions About Our Residential or Commercial Alarm Systems?

At ARC Alarms, we are experts in installing domestic and commercial alarm systems. If you have questions about our security system installations or repairs, you can find answers to most of them below. 

Will there be any wires visible?

Our qualified engineers at ARC Alarms install security systems across domestic and commercial properties every day. We pride ourselves on our ability to install systems discreetly, as we strive to hide wires the best we can. In a situation where this isn’t possible, our engineer will discuss alternative options with you.

If there is a power cut, will my alarm still work?

All of our security systems are supplied with a battery backup to power them in the event of a power failure. The battery can power the system for at least 12 hours. Once the power is restored, the battery will recharge, and the system will continue to work as normal. We change the rechargeable battery as part of our preventative maintenance contract at no additional charge.

What if I have pets? Can I still have an alarm?

We can install pet-friendly detectors that are designed to ignore small cats and dogs. Alternatively, we can design the security system in a way that a certain area will not be detected and is designated for your pets movement.

What if I have a fault with my system?

If your security system is under our Preventative Maintenance Contract, we will be happy to investigate any faults or false alarms that may arise from your system. Simply contact us to report the fault.
