Did you know that emergency lighting has batteries? Sometimes, they are also hardwired but there are batteries within the lights and they have to be tested all the time. When we say all the time, at the very least annually but some of our buildings, we do it quarterly.

To pass city inspections, you need to make sure that they work. You need to do a light button test to check if it will work and if they’re hardwired or tied into a central system, then the city inspectors are going to ask you to:

 

  1. Turn on the lights 
  2. Hit the electrical breaker 

 

They want to make sure that the light stays on, and if they don’t stay on and they’re not bright enough, you’re going to fail your city inspection.

 

If you or anyone else you know, is looking for a proactive property manager to make sure that emergency lighting works and you pass your city inspections, please think of Green Ocean Property Management, where you get more than a property manager, you get peace of mind.
