The most common cause of False Alarms
Nobody wants false alarms. Burglar alarms going off in the middle of the night are not good for neighbourhood relations or for our precious beauty sleep!
Did you know that most false alarms are triggered by one common cause? The good news is that it is easily dealt with…read on …..
Spiders!
Spiders love to hang out in corners! Unfortunately that is also the best place to position a PIR alarm detector. Think about it….a spider scuttling across the carpet is not going to register with the detector, but a spider who walks across the PIR is going to look like an elephant to the detector! I’m sure they are attracted to the LED lights in PIRs. We have even found spiders making a cosy home inside detectors.
This summer seems to be spider heaven and we have had several false alarms caused by spiders this week alone.
Even the cleanest homes and offices can have spiders, so if you get a false alarm, my advice would always be to see if one of our eight legged friends has taken up residence.
The Solution
Vacuum webs from around the PIRs. This often solves the problem. For more persistent arachnids it is worth using insect spray.
