  • Burglar Alarm fitting

    10Verified Review

    Matt fitted a house alarm for me, he talked me through the options and gave me recommendations and what extras he thought were worth it and importantly what wasn’t needed. He completed the work efficiently and was very clean and tidy. He talked me through the alarm system which is easy to use. I would definitely recommend Matt and the Sparta alarm system. Matt is a genuine nice guy you can trust to do quality work at a good price. Since fitting the alarm he has carried out several other electrical jobs for me which I am very pleased with.

  • New alarm and security light fitted

    10Verified Review

    Professional right from the outset, we chose Matt and Sparta Security and would 100% recommend. Matt came to quote, arrived on time, was extremely helpful in helping us decide what we needed, and even spoke with my decorator so we could organise what went in, when and how. Communication was great throughout and on the day of installation, Matt was punctual and worked really hard to ensure everything was in place and working before he left. He explained all the controls and even hoovered up! He was also easily contactable afterwards when we had an (unrelated) electrical issue.

  • Alarm fitting

    9.75Verified Review

    Matt was extremely helpful with advising on our old alarm system and provided solutions which he could carry out to improve our system. He removed the whole system and refitted it with something really effective and easy to use. Communication was extremely easy and we felt in safe hands with Matt the whole way through working together. Thank you Matt!

Company info

I am based in Timperley, South Manchester and offer the design, installation, and maintenance of intruder alarms, CCTV, and door entry systems.

I hold SSAIB and UKAS product certification. SSAIB (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board) is a certification body that assesses security systems providers against a national standard. All firms that are certified have undergone a thorough audit to assess its products, installations and services. It also has other benefits; most insurance companies will ask whether your burglar alarm is fitted and maintained by an SSAIB certified company and give a discount to those who are. You also have additional redress with the SSAIB should there be an issue that you don’t feel the company has resolved to your satisfaction.

I have 20 years’ experience in the security systems industry. My career includes being an installation engineer for two national companies for a combined 15 years. I then set up Sparta Security Systems in 2015 and recently changed name to Sparta Security and Electrical Limited after gaining my city and guilds electrical qualifications which has allowed me to carry out my own electrical work for sockets, fused spurs, security light installations etc.

The alarm systems I install can offer multiple setting procedures including perimeter set by means of code, key tag, wireless key fob or app function and alarm activations will be sent to the users phone with each device triggered and time of alarm. The alarm can also be activated remotely on the app from anywhere in the world.

The CCTV systems I install range from 2mp 1080p HD-TVI camera images to IP network 8mp 4k images with built in analytics such as two-way talk, audio and siren/strobe alarms during specified hours using acusense technology for false alarm filtering. Motion events from the camera images can be sent by push notification to the user’s phone with an attached image of what caused the event.
