Burglar Alarm Installation In Manchester

Why Choose Professional Burglar Alarm Installation?

Whilst you technically can install an intruder alarm yourself, it's far from ideal. Intruder alarms are highly technical security equipment; incorrectly installing them could result in frequent false alarms, lack of protection, or other forms of failure.

DIY alarm systems have recently surged in popularity; these kits typically comprise essential components such as motion detectors, a central control panel, and a basic siren. Their primary draw is the perceived cost-saving, as the upfront cost might be less than a professionally installed system. While DIY may save a penny here and there, it might not be the wisest avenue when safeguarding our homes. After all, when it comes to security, cutting corners can lead to vulnerabilities that carry far-reaching consequences.

You rely on your intruder alarm to protect you, your family, and your belongings. As such, it's of the utmost importance that it is functioning flawlessly. One minor misstep in installation, such as placing a sensor in an ineffective location or not calibrating it correctly, can jeopardise the entire system's efficacy. Additionally, every home is unique in its layout and security needs. However, DIY kits adopt a one-size-fits-all approach to cater to the widest possible audience. This further magnifies the risk of improper installation without professional guidance regarding the number of sensors, types of sensors, and their positions.

Burglar Alarm Installation And Annual Maintenance Plans

Burglar alarms are fantastic security tools for both home security and commercial security. They provide a superb deterrent against criminal activity such as break-ins or burglary. However, an alarm only protects if it is working correctly. A damaged alarm system could be seen by criminals as a vulnerability, potentially marking your property as a target for robbery or other criminal activity.

So, how often should an alarm be serviced and undergo routine maintenance? Well, that depends on your unique needs and circumstances; however, a good rule of thumb is that intruder alarms should be serviced with regular maintenance every 12 months. This helps identify any problems before they cause a failure, leaving your home or business unprotected.

Annual Maintenance Coverage is similar to insurance for your alarm system. We will attend your property and issue a full service for a one-off payment each year. This is a full test of your system to ensure everything is working correctly. There are many benefits to taking out Annual Maintenance Cover, the main one being the guaranteed service you receive from us. Any system under the cover receives free call-outs for the full year, and we offer a 24-hour phone line that can be used in an emergency.

As a local business, we're very passionate about our local community; we're very concerned about the crime rate in Greater Manchester. That's why we offer alarm repair services for any burglar alarm, regardless of whether our team or a competitor has installed it. We provide repair services for all burglar alarm units; this includes fixing any make or model of intruder alarm. It doesn't matter if we installed the system; call our team, and we'll get there as soon as possible.

Intruder Detectors: How Our Burglar Alarm Installation Protects Your Property

To ensure your home is fully protected, choosing the right detection devices for your intruder alarm system is essential. We offer a range of options designed to provide comprehensive coverage and enhance the security of your Manchester home.

  1. PIR Detectors:
    Strategically placed in room corners, PIR (Passive Infrared) Detectors are highly effective at detecting movement. When an intruder enters the range of the PIR detector, it triggers the alarm, immediately alerting you and deterring the intruder from advancing further into your home.
  2. Magnetic Door Contacts:
    Designed to be fitted to external doors, Magnetic Door Contacts add an extra layer of security. These devices detect the opening and closing of doors, ensuring that any unauthorised entry triggers the alarm. Acting as a first line of defence, they help protect your property and provide peace of mind.
  3. Shock Detectors:
    Installed on windows and/or doors, Shock Detectors are designed to detect vibrations caused by forced entry attempts. If someone tries to break in by smashing glass or tampering with doors, the shock detector triggers the alarm, acting as a powerful deterrent and preventing unauthorised access to your home.
  1. Shock & Contact Dual Device:
    Combining the functionality of both magnetic door contacts and shock detectors, the Shock & Contact Dual Device offers a cost-effective solution. With this device, you benefit from two detection methods in one, ensuring enhanced security coverage for your property.
  2. Outdoor Detectors:
    Outdoor Detectors are weatherproof devices that can be installed across the back or side of your premises. These IP-rated detectors work similarly to PIR detectors, triggering the alarm when they detect movement. Monitoring outdoor areas ensures that potential intruders are detected and deterred before they can access your home.

I needed a door contact re attaching, so I phoned Nova on the Friday afternoon, and they came out on the Monday and sorted everything out perfectly.Couldn't ask for a better and speedier service.Proper friendly too, everyone I spoke with. And they saved me a lot of money rather than going through the company who originally installed it, who wanted more than twice the price just to come out.Would definitely use again!

The companies great and she's an asset to them
