Class Code: 7605

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 7605 is applied to insureds engaged in the installation or repair of burglar and fire alarms. Fire alarms consist of a central control, usually a console, smoke detectors and/or heat sensors. These may be situated throughout offices and plant areas and are tied together with interconnecting wire.

The burglar alarm system also consists of a central control and involves taping circuits on glass portions of doors and windows or electric eye units mounted at doorways. The wire is the same type used in the other systems. There is no incidence of line voltages being used, except to the console or central control unit which is merely plugged into an outlet to activate the amplifier. This is true of all systems. In some instances, all systems will be wired into the electrical system of the building, in which case a wire will be brought out of an existing electrical receptacle and the connection is made permanent instead of a plug-in type of connection.

Occasionally, burglar and/or fire alarm installers may be required to make an incidental outside service connection from the utility line to the building in which they are installing the alarms. This operation is included under Code 7605 provided that it takes place at the same location the inside operations are being performed.
