Many of our installation sites have remote management appliances installed allowing for remote support, this remote support is only possible if there is an active internet connection to the site. We can only support IP-enabled devices, examples include, changing user access codes, rebooting connected devices, performing software updates, testing network performance etc.
Remote service is a cost-effective option and will be the default service choice, if we are unable to assist remotely we will book a site visit by one of our technical service personnel.

Surrounds as a technical service company offers service during normal as well as after-hours periods for the purpose of providing specialised assistance with many different electronic lifestyle systems, technologies as well as audio/visual entertainment systems that will fail or fault from time to time.
Please note that while best efforts are made, a service call out does not guarantee a successful outcome.
The service fee charged covers the cost of sending a technically trained person to your premises to perform in their best capacity to rectify the fault or issue as described.
In some cases there may be a total failure of multiple systems and equipment may need to be removed from your site for repair or further testing, in other cases a replacement part may be required and a return trip may be necessary.
Call out fees and additional time costs (as listed above) will apply regardless of the outcome.
While we endeavour to be on time, our service technicians may be delayed depending on the workload or complexity of a prior appointment. Surrounds will make every effort to notify you in cases where technical service personnel will be delayed in excess of 1 hour of your estimated appointment start time.
If a time frame is critical please make a first booking request.
