How Long Do Rechargeable Batteries Last?

In your fire/burglar alarm system lurks several rechargeable batteries. These batteries are given a life expectancy of five years by their manufacturers. However, truth be known, they routinely reach half capacity within the first three years of use. What this means is that your rechargeable battery system will only support the operation of your system for half of what fire code requires when there's a power outage.

Environmental conditions can influence the life expectancy of these precision devices. A good example of this is the storage of two or more batteries inside a closed box in a hot utility room. Ventilation can mean a lot when it comes to battery life.

So what’s the answer?

In this case, after the second year of use, you really need to have your fire alarm service company check them every year just to make sure they're up to capacity.

ESC uses modern computerized battery testers to verify battery condition. We check our client's batteries every time we conduct an inspection.

If someone else installed your system, you can still have the professionals at ESC service your fire alarm. We also offer 24/7 Central Station and Supervising Station monitoring through our UL-Listed monitoring station. Our central station is second to none--let us prove it to you.

Family saved from house blaze by smoke alarms

A Winchester family had a lucky escape when their property caught fire in the wee-early hours of the morning in mid September of this year. The fire chief this morning said that without a doubt a working smoke alarm and a good escape plan saved the family from serious injury and the property from being extensively damaged (http://bit.ly/2d2avmp).
“Smoke alarms use batteries, and we all know that batteries always die at the most inopportune times, sometimes without a whimper. Smoke detectors, however, are part of a larger fire alarm system that provides almost unending power, whether your electric is out or not,” says John Larkin, Senior ESC Partner.
With a monitored, quality ESC fire alarm system in your home or office, you have the assurance that help is on the way if a fire should break out. Our systems meet all NFPA and local regulations, which means that the equipment used meets all current standards.
Our central station is next to none and our installers and technicians are factory trained and state certified.

"Let us prove to you just how valuable ESC can be to your organization!" says Larkin.

Contact ESC for more information by calling us at 614-754-1393 or use the convenient contact form below or on the right side of this page. You also can click on any one of the "Get a Quote" buttons and you'll be contacted by an ESC professional within 24 working hours. If you already have a fire alarm system and you need service, please click on a "Set Appointment" button and we'll be there when and where you need us.

Remember, the lives you save may be that of your own, a family member, or someone key to the success of your own organization.

Catching Crooks is the Game, Deterrence is the Aim

Career criminals who have previously done time for past crimes realize that if they are caught again, they’ll do even more time. For this reason, they cannot afford to be caught again. Many of these crooks specialize in what they do and many of them do it quite well.

Some of these career criminals will resort to setting the scene of a crime ablaze in order to destroy evidence. Fire is one way to destroy fingerprint residue as well as the media that holds video evidence. Examples of this include SD/Micro-SD chips in cameras, DVR’s (digital video recorders), NVR’s (network video recorders), DVD’s, and other means of video data storage.

“Fires, by their destructive nature, consume the evidence of their initiation and progress as they grow. Investigations are compromised, and often scenes are further destroyed by the activities of the fire service, whose primary responsibilities are to save lives and protect property against further damage” (Fire and Arson Scene Evidence: A Guide for Public Safety Personnel, http://bit.ly/2a3JOcf).
Video combined with intrusion/fire detection is one way to fight this kind of crime right from the beginning. The mere presence of cameras in and about a targeted business is often enough to send this type of criminal scurrying to an adjacent business who does not display any sign of cameras or a security system. The existence of a siren box on the side of a building, the presence of a working keypad inside the foyer, having foil tape or vibration detection bugs attached to the window glass around the perimeter, the presence of cameras inside and out are often enough to deter would-be criminals before the crime has been committed.
“Again I say, catching crooks may be the name of the game, but deterrence is always our aim,” says John Larkin, Senior Partner with ESC of Columbus, Ohio.
Toward that end, having a quality video surveillance system with off-site image archiving is one way to retain valuable evidence, evidence that would otherwise be destroyed in an intentionally set fire.

Electronic Systems Consultants LLC (@ESC_LLC) specializes in the sale and installation of quality video surveillance, intrusion, and fire detection systems. Off-site image archiving is available at competitive prices.

Give ESC a call today and we’ll be happy to visit your place of business where we’ll develop a game plan specific to your situation. Call us today at 614-754-1393, send us an email at electronicsystemsconsultants@gmail.com, or use our quick quote form on our website at http://bit.ly/1wXhlut. (scroll down, on right).
