Dear KSS Clients
Please may we request that if you are going away and need to drop off keys at the office, that you come into the KSS offices directly and complete the necessary paperwork so that all protocols can be checked and followed.
If you live in a complex or on a property where there is more than one house, please ensure that the correct remote panic button is in the correct house / unit. If you are unsure, then please contact the KSS Control Room so that a test can be conducted and if necessary a Technician can be sent out to rectify any problems. Also, please do not remove any remote panic buttons from a house / unit as they have been programmed specifically for that house / unit.
