Tech Tips ‘n Tricks (of the Trade):

Welcome to the open "Tips" section.   How do you properly test a fire alarm communicator?  How do you recognize that it's been properly wired and programmed?  How do you test a sealed lead-acid or "pure-lead" battery?  How do you test the sensitivity level of an addressable smoke detector?  Here’s where we'll share some insights, observations, and (what we hope will be) some insightful anecdotes that just may make your job easier.

Please choose from the menu at the top of this page!

If you’re in the electrical trade and have some tips (or tricks) of your own that you’d like to share, please Contact Us!
