It assures our clients that we comply with strict industry standards, and maintain the highest level of competency and adherence to health and safety regulations.

Why should you opt for professional security systems from Nova Fire & Security?

Plus, our alarm systems are British-Graded and favoured by insurance companies for their resilience.

What are IP cameras and how do they differ from standard CCTV cameras?

IP cameras are advanced CCTV cameras that transmit digital signals and can achieve higher resolutions than standard HD cameras. They are designed to connect directly to your local network's switches, allowing for a more efficient setup. Nova Fire & Security’s IP cameras use the latest technology to enhance your security system’s performance.

What is Power over Ethernet (PoE) and how do Nova Fire & Security’s cameras use it?

Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a technology that allows network cables to carry electrical power. At Nova Fire & Security, our IP cameras utilise PoE to minimise the need for additional power cabling, making installation simpler and more cost-effective while maintaining high performance and reliability.

What broadband speed is recommended for effective remote viewing of Nova Fire & Security’s CCTV systems?

For effective remote viewing of our CCTV systems, we recommend a minimum upload speed of 2mb. This ensures that you can reliably stream footage from the NVR/DVR without significant latency, allowing you to monitor your property effectively from anywhere.

What types of maintenance do Nova Fire & Security's alarm systems require?

Nova Fire & Security's alarm systems require annual maintenance checks by our certified security experts to ensure they are functioning optimally. Our maintenance package includes system testing, necessary repairs, or replacement of defective items under warranty, ensuring continuous protection for your property.

Why is it important to have a security system that is compliant with industry standards?

Having a security system that complies with industry standards, such as those certified by SSAIB, ensures that your system is trusted and recognised for its quality and reliability. It meets the rigorous requirements for performance and is likely to be recognised by insurance providers, which can sometimes lead to reduced insurance premiums.

Can Nova Fire & Security provide customised security solutions?

Yes, Nova Fire & Security can create customised security solutions that are tailored to your specific needs. From additional sensors to integrating camera systems with smart devices, we can design a security system that fits the unique requirements of your home or business.

What is third-party monitoring and how does it enhance my security with Nova Fire & Security?

Third-party monitoring is a service where your alarm system is connected to a monitoring center that can respond to triggered alarms. This means that if an intrusion is detected, the monitoring center is alerted and can immediately notify the local authorities or designated contacts, providing an added layer of security and prompt response.

What should I consider when choosing between DIY and professional alarm systems?

When deciding between DIY and professional alarm systems, consider the level of security you require, your budget, and whether you want professional monitoring. DIY systems can be cost-effective and are good for basic security needs, while professional systems from Nova Fire & Security offer comprehensive protection, expert installation, and ongoing support.
