Mr Neville Kiely

Hills District Alarms has been proud to do business with Central Monitoring Services for many years. Central Monitoring Services owner MR Neville Kiely was recently recognised for his tremendous work in the industry and we congratulate Neville for his award. 
The following is an article from the Security Insider Publication:

At the recent industry awards for excellence, Neville Kiely was recognised for his contribution to the Association as an active, passionate and tireless supporter of the Association.
Neville served as an ASIAL Board Director and chaired the Association's alarm/electronics sub-commitee for more years than he would probably care to remember. Under his leadership the sub-comittee achieved many gaols and helped raise the level of professionalism within the electronics sector. 
Neville has been a pioneer in the bureau alarm monitoring business which offered small alarm installation businesses and manpower companies the opportunity to expand their service level offering, effectively spawning a new market segment and expanding the growth of monitored alarms systems across the country. 
Neville was presented with a Certification of Appreciation for the contribution to the association.

Do you have excessive phone accounts that your phone company is blaming on your alarm system?

We have again been promted to remind our clients of the need to keep a close eye on their phone accounts with regards alarm diallers that "run away". That is the alarm dialler calls the monitoring service on more occassions then it is programmed for. This generally occurs due to the advent of A.D.S.L broadband. The ADSL signal interferes with the data the alarm dialler is trying to transmit to your monitoring service and as a result can cause the dialler to try again and again to get the signal through. As monitoring service software does not usually identify multiple signals, the client should be checking to make sure all is in good order and regularly checking their alarm system back to base to ensure it is in good working order. If you find there is a problem, please contact us for service.

NESS have released a new wireless passive infra red sensor with up to 15 metres range. We have just installed some this week.The new styling is quite atractive on the wall and it now has a blue walk test light, which is more pleasant then the old red light. The long life batteries that come wth sensor have a life of up to 10 years, which is much better then the old model. There is also a PET Aware version so you can secure your home and still have your pet inside*. (see size limits on specs).The other major feature is that it comes with a night light built in. So if your in the habit of wondering around your home at night the light will help you find your way, it comes on as you move into the sensors detetcion area. Very handy idea.
