Hi All,

Can anybody give me some advice regarding a periodic inspection that I carried out recently. I went to the property in question and found that one of the circuits for the sockets, controlled three hard wired smokes and a Varitas house alarm.

Every time I switched off the mains, it triggered the alarm and smokes which meant I was unable to carry out the inspection. The owner had no paperwork for the alarm and they said they never use it. I looked to see if there was an isolation switch but there was nothing. Am I right in thinking there is an engineer code to turn it off to carry out maintenance? And when you did isolate i,t would you just send 250v through the circuit in this instance, for an insulation resistance test, as I am unable to remove the load? Baring in mind that it is on a socket circuit. Any ideas?

Thanks
