Should I periodically test my security system?

It is important to test your security system once a month to make sure it is working properly.  ESS recommends that you first contact your monitoring provider or installation company.  You will need to ask them to place the system in “TEST” mode. 

Next, arm your system and set it off to make sure that the system goes into alarm and functions properly.   Each month you should choose different zones to test on your system.  Should you find any problems with the system, you should immediately report them to the service and installation company for repair. 

ESS provides these repair services and also has technicians that can perform these tests on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis for you.  At ESS, we also perform additions to systems if you are remodeling.  Our professional and courteous staff will always arrive in uniform and in a company van to service your system.  Want to learn more about the offerings of ESS?
