4 Signs That Your Security System Needs Updating


Having a security system for your home and business is crucial to protect yourself from break-ins, burglars, and all other crime.

Now that there are plenty of affordable domestic and commercial security systems, there is no excuse for ensuring you, your loved ones and your property are protected from would-be intruders.

However, having an up-to-date security system is just as important as having one in the first place. Read below to find out the top four signs that your security system needs updating.


If you installed it yourself

Although some CCTV and burglar alarms seem relatively straight forward to install, it is always better to have a professional like ourselves install it. Our dedicated staff customise and tailor our system to meet your needs.

You can monitor your cameras from the comfort of your home or check in on your smartphone or tablet. Don’t make the rookie mistake of installing your systems yourself, allow the professionals to do it for you to give you added peace of mind when you’re out and about.


If you’re away from home often

You want the best security to protect your home considering you are not there all the time. If you are regularly on business trips and away from home, there is an easy way to prevent break-ins, such as having home security measures in place.

CCTV monitoring would allow the culprit to be caught in the act and even scare off anyone attempting to break-in. While your security specialist will inform the emergency services of any potential danger, the CCTV will provide invaluable evidence.


If you don’t have remote access

A remote home monitoring system allows your property to be protected if your alarm goes off and you aren’t home. Traditional alarm systems often fail in response times; however, a remote monitoring system allows for improved response times.

At Nova Alarms, our remote home monitoring system will alert a team of trained staff when your security alarm is activated. These professionals are available to assess your situation 24 hours a day, and they can alert emergency services if necessary.


If you no longer trust your existing system

If you no longer use your security system due to a lack of trust, speak to our team of trained experts at Nova Alarms to see how we can provide you with peace of mind by having the latest technology. For the most part, the more security devices fitted to a property, the lower the risk of burglary.
