Should alarm maintenance be covered by the landlord?

We have our alarm regularly serviced on a flat we let but call outs are chargeable. Recently our tenant's alarm could not be silenced and she called the company out to fix it. Who is liable to pay for this as it's not in the contract? Should we put this in the contract that the tenant is liable? Is there any law about this or is it just at the discretion of the landlord?
