I never had a contract.  It was under contract by the previous owners. 

Ideally you want one, if you can keep it going?

How long ago was it last serviced?

Servicing, meaning batteries on sirens, back up battery on panel And making sure it works .

Functions on panic buttons and pir's

i check all of this periodically.  Back up batteries are changed once a year.

What do you check with and how? Do you do a tach test or load test or what's your preference?

Very well, but you'd save money straight away as a company would only change the batteries every 4 years.

 

The XPC is most likely a dummy external siren as these were sold as monitored systems, sold and installed in the main by subcontract sales companies in the early 2000's so having one non monitored is a bit of a waste of time.

 

Just imo of course.

Yes , true it was a dummy but I have fitted an elmdene external siren . 

Believe you are quite right on the batteries.

Unfortunately for me I always like to get to the bottom of things and end up taking things apart to find out how they tick.  Not always advantageous.  Force of habit in my case.
