Dear KSS Clients
Update your information with KSS
Repairs on gate motors by other companies
Please may we request that if you have another company do ANY work on your gate motor, that you contact the KSS Control Room so that we can send out a Reaction Officer to check that the access for KSS Armed Response is still working, whilst the other company are still on site.
Please note that if the access receiver is damaged or disconnected by someone other than KSS staff working on the gate motor, the client will be charged accordingly for a technician to be sent out to ensure the necessary repairs are made to the KSS equipment, and that access is been restored.
This information is important, because there have been numerous occasions where Armed Response is unable to gain access, KSS are blamed, and then it is established that another company has worked on the gate motor and damaged the receiver.
