Security and alarm services

Alarm Maintenance provides a range of Security Systems, tailored to the needs of individual clients. We are an approved installer and maintainer of burglar / intruder alarms as inspected and approved by the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board [SSAIB]. SSAIB regularly carries out inspections of security installations and administrative procedures, ensuring that we are completing all alarm and security work to the correct standard.

Maintaining your alarm or security systems

Unlike many companies, we don’t tie you into a maintenance contract, as we believe our quality of service and competitive prices should be the reason you stay with us.

Whether your intruder or fire alarm system was purchased from Alarm Maintenance or another company, we offer alarm servicing on an annual, six-monthly or quarterly basis as required by the relevant standard. We can repair your alarm quickly should you have any problems. Police response alarms are maintained on a six-monthly basis.

Design, installation, service and repair of burglar and fire alarms in Cambridge.
