Dear KSS Clients
Your home and business alarms
Your alarm should be tested at least once a month. Please remember to do this between the hours of 9am and 3pm or after 7pm. Please notify the KSS Control Room beforehand so that a controller can assist and guide you. If you discover your alarm is faulty, it is important that you then schedule a technical visit to check your alarm.
Please set your alarms at night and when you are not at home, and also report all cases to SAPS.
