Frequently Asked Questions

I want a system where I can manage my security remotely. Can you do that?

Yes, we can. For both residential and commercial properties we can fit cutting edge solutions that you can manage via a smart phone, tablet or PC. We also offer integated solutions, connecting up intruder alarms, CCTV and lighting. This makes it possible to customise a system to respond to specific events, such as automatically turning on the lights and streaming live video in the event of an alarm being activated.

I didn't buy my alarm from you. Can you still service or upgrade it?

Yes. We support and maintain security systems for many clients who bought their systems elsewhere. Sometimes we are called on because their system is very old, sometimes because they did not want to be tied into a support contract with the original company. Servicing and upgrades are a core part of what we do at Banbury Alarms Ltd. If you have a question about getting help with your current system, please get in touch.

What area does Banbury Alarms cover?

We are based in Banbury and in Kineton and cover Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and Northhamptonshire. If in doubt, give us a call and we will see if we can help.

I have a dog. Can I still fit an alarm without it going off when the dog moves around?

An infrared motion detector can be configured to be triggered only when it detects the presence of a body above a certain weight or height. In this way, it won't be triggered when your pet enters the secured area.

Should I get a wired or wireless system?

We fit both wireless and wired solutions, and both types have merit. Many people choose wireless systems because they don't want to see wires going up the wall or don't want the upheaval of having wires hidden. It is also simpler to add more detectors to a wireless system. If you are unsure what system would suit you best, we offer a free site consultation where we can assess your property and answer all your questions.

What kind of maintenance contract do you offer?

It is crucial that alarm systems and saftey detectors are well maintained so they work in case of an emergency, so servicing is an important consideration. We offer complete flexibility and don't tie customers into unwanted or expensive servicing contracts.

Is it enough to have security indoors or do I also need an outdoor solution?

Whether the property is residential or commercial, security begins on the outside. Depending on your premises you may want to consider security lighting and CCTV, the presence of which is a major deterrent to criminals.
