AVS has recently Tweeted that; “Star rated alarms are only valid if installed by an NZSA registered installer. If your installer is not registered your alarm has no rating!”
Too True, however, what I find amusing is that if you look at the list of AVS retailers on the AVS website many of those listed are not NZSA members!
Now I am not having a pop at AVS because the same can be said about both the Dynatron and Mongoose websites. Both mention the need for security to be installed by an NZSA approved installer, yet both list installers who are not NZSA approved!
Mongoose are so keen to shag the product out they even list Repco on their “Where to buy page”! Am I mistaken here, or is getting a sale more important than practising what you preach?
Speaking of NZSA installers, the numbers in Wellington seem to be doping off like flies. Last year there were 9, this year we are down to 4 (Myself Included who I must point out only remain as a member to offer some protection to my customers in the event of an insurance claim!) Could this be because many in the industry consider the current standards to be a joke?
