Christmas and New Year Opening Hours

With Christmas and the new year right around the corner, and our team planning in some well earned holiday, we want to let you know of any changes to our normal operations that you can expect.

Our emergency care team will still be on hand

If you have an alarm which is monitored by Telecare24, please rest assured that our team will still answer. When we say that our monitoring service is 24/7, 365 days a year, we mean it. That doesn’t change over the Christmas and New Year period.

Our normal office will be closing for Christmas

The administration, customer services and sales office will be closed from 5 pm on Wednesday 23rd December. We’ll be back in the office at 9 am on Tuesday 29th December. We’ll also be closed on New Year’s Day.

Please note, this is a different office to where our emergency care team are based. That team will continue to answer emergency calls 24/7, with no change over Christmas or New Year.

If you’re not having any luck with the troubleshooting guides, please e-mail us on [email protected] and we will get back to you on our return to the office.

Guides for troubleshooting your alarm

Order online as soon as possible

To get set up in time for Christmas, we recommend that new customers order online as quickly as possible.

Any orders placed from Monday 21st December onwards will have a 10 working day delivery timescale until the New Year.

Please note: In light of COVID-19, some deliveries may take a little longer to arrive. This is outside of our control.
