With Eskom load shedding daily, home owners have been urged to test their security systems as a matter of urgency and to pay particular attention to the battery back-up systems during load shedding periods.
The only time it may not function correctly is if there is a technical issue, or the battery power is low.
With the added inconvenience of the lights going out at night due to power cuts, candles and touch-lights are handy alternatives.
Home owners are also advised that it is important that their alarm systems have adequate battery supply and that batteries should be checked regularly.
Alarms should be checked during extended power outages to keep systems running.
Power cuts can affect fire systems and fire control systems, so these also need to be checked regularly. The more frequent use of gas and candles can increase the risk of fire and home fire extinguishers should be on hand.
People are urged to remain vigilant during power cuts and be on the lookout for any suspicious activity and report this to their security company or the police immediately.
