Q Technical Void Property SSAIB & NSI Compliant Wireless Alarm Systems



Q Technical have the very latest remotely fully monitored void wireless property alarms which are now available for short or long term hire starting from as little as £35.00 including VAT per week.

The RDAS+ security alarm system is the latest step in  battery powered, network communicating, radio linked temporary alarm systems that complies with and exceeds the SSAIB Code of Practise for Enhanced Temporary Alarm Systems.

Unlike other wireless, battery powered security systems on the market, the RDAS+ provides users with the ability to remotely arm and disarm the system in real time. This is especially useful if there are contractors etc. that irregularly require access to the property but to whom you do not want to issue codes or iButtons. This is done via logging in to our secure web portal with a unique username and password. Once logged in, users can arm / disarm the system, add or remove devices and access codes and view / download management data for the past six months.

Due to the unique 24/7 connection to our remote server, the RDAS+ can be used in conjunction with a suitable access control system to lock and unlock the premises remotely. No more Keys, no more codes, No more problems!

Uniquely the RDAS+ GPRS communicator has been designed to use a World SIM card. A World SIM is used as these SIM cards can select which network to send its signals through. This is done automatically every time a signal needs to be transmitted. Other systems on the market use a Single Network SIM, which is no good if the local cell tower goes down, or Roaming SIMs. Roaming SIMs look for the cheapest available network. Unfortunately they cannot tell if the network is overloaded and that can prevent the signal being received.

Our World SIMs automatically check available networks and tests them to see which is providing the fastest and most reliable transmission and then uses that network. This GUARANTEES that your signal gets through.

Landlords…Are you ready for the new Smoke and CO Alarm Legislation



New legislation will come into force on the 10th October 2015 that requires private landlords of residential premises within England by law to install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms within their properties.

It is to be clarified in the next few months is Wales will be included. Scottish landlords already are required by law to undertake these requirements under existing legislation.

On the government’s website it reads:

“The proposed changes to the law would require landlords to install smoke alarms on every floor of their property, and test them at the start of every tenancy.

Landlords would also need to install carbon monoxide alarms in high risk rooms – such as those where a solid fuel heating system is installed.

This would bring private rented properties into line with existing building regulations that already require newly-built homes to have hard-wired smoke alarms installed.”

It is not currently known who will enforce this law from the 10th October 2015 but it is proposed that those who fail to install the relevant detection would face sanctions and could face up to a £5,000 civil penalty.

If you are a tech savvy landlord we at Q Technical Services would advise installations of Nest Protect where your tenants will feel protected by one integrated device and all your detection requirements are covered.

As a landlord you can feel safe in the hands that if one of your devices fails to operate you will be made aware automatically so as you can take action…
