When you invest in an alarm system from SPL Ballina, you are investing in three decades of innovative security experience. Whether you are looking at a traditional home security system, or a more complex system for your business premises or holiday home, you can trust the reputation that our name continues to carry.

An alarm system, also known as a burglar alarm or an intruder alarm, is an electrical system designed to detect unauthorised entry of a premises using motion sensors. They can also indicate when a door or window has been opened and are commonly used in residential, commercial and industrial properties for protection against theft and damage, as well as for personal protection against unwanted intruders.

Some alarm systems serve a single purpose of burglary protection but many can also be combined with CCTV systems to record the activities of the unwanted visitor.  They also may interface to access control systems for electronically locked doors in office blocks and residential buildings.

SPL Ballina alarm systems come wired or wireless and range from small devices that sound a simple but effective alarm, to complicated systems with computer monitoring and control.

A house is often the most valuable item a person owns, and unfortunately burglaries do happen. By having a home security system installed you are heavily reducing your chances of being a victim. An alarm system is truly one of the very best deterrents you can have installed – just seeing the visual element of the alarm system can be enough to put the burglar off targeting your property!

The presence of an alarm system also provides family with peace of mind knowing that their home, their possessions and their loved ones are protected from a range of potentially devastating scenarios.  If a home owner is elderly, has problems with mobility or is frequently at home alone, this peace of mind is priceless.

You can choose exactly which rooms or areas of your home you want to protect through the programming of zones – there’s no need to worry about your pets setting off the alarm during the night or whilst you’re at work! You can also choose to have your alarm system monitored so that the minute the alarm sounds, somebody will come out to your property to assist you.

SPL alarm systems can be customised to include add-ons such as smoke and heat detectors, break glass sensors and much more. They can also be connected to smart home automation security systems controlled by a smartphone or tablet, giving you the ability to control your system even when you’re not at home!

Wireless alarm systems use battery powered sensors that communicate with a control panel through radio signals.

Generally, they are more pleasing on the eye, they are easier to install and you can easily add and remove additional sensors. Removing the system is much easier when you move house or business premises, or even if you just need to paint the walls. However, they are more expensive to buy and require batteries for all components which can become expensive. If batteries are left to run low, the responsiveness can decrease hence the importance of having wireless system regularly maintained.

SPL Ballina wireless alarm system are the most common choose for residential properties, and due to their WIFI ability they can often offer more functionality.  

Hard wired alarm systems are connected to the control panel through a network of wires inside of the building, which is then then connected to your landline.

Generally, they are less expensive to buy compared to a wireless system, but they do come with the additional cost of having to be professionally installed. When a new sensor needs to be added or removed, again this generally involves the work of an electrical technician.  

Hard wired systems are popular in commercial buildings due to their reliability and the fact that do not run off batteries.

The outcome will vary depending on the type of alarm system you have installed.
