Class code 7605 is used for employees that install or repair burglar alarms, fire alarms, security cameras, and other related products like smoke detectors and heat sensors. This is typically done by installing a central control unit and then connecting various wires from other locations to this main location. Operations that may be performed by those employees working under the scope of this class code include electrical wiring, mounting hardware and units to walls, windows, and doorways, running and connecting wires, inspecting and repairing connections, testing components to ensure they are in working order, and doing other various electronic work required for installation or repair. In addition, outside service connections from a building’s utility line may be necessary in some cases, and is allowed under class code 7605 as long as all work takes place at the same location and is relevant.

Any work done involving automatic sprinkler fire alarms would be separately classified and not assigned to class code 7605, as well as alarm installation repair operations done for vehicles.
