We strongly believe in the deterrent value of the security systems that we install. This is borne out by the statistics that I have compiled over the sixteen plus years that we have been protecting our clients. This amounts to millions of accumulated hours that have kept our clients safe from intruders. Compared against national… Continue reading The Value Of First Class Security
It is argued that acquiring new clients costs in the order of five times the rate of retaining existing ones. I would maintain that the ratio might be considerably more than this, especially when you factor in the likelihood of additional business that your existing clients could provide. We recently upgraded the alarm system for… Continue reading Caring For Your Customers Brings Rewards
Our latest client is much closer to home than the New Forest trek last Friday, in fact in Old Harlow, just around the corner from Sentinel House. They were burgled recently so we “fast tracked” them. This is a unique free service that we offer to potential clients that we consider in need of an… Continue reading Do You Need Our Free Fast Track Service?
I ask this question because unusually I have seen three of my local clients (this includes myself) targetted by thieves, since the start of this year. In each of these cases the thieves left empty handed because the security system that we installed was fully operational. So as soon as the burglars attempted to enter… Continue reading Are The Days Of The Dummy Deterrent Numbered?
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-35625180 Whenever I read about events such as this, it evokes two emotions in me. The first is incredible sadness because loss of life is bad enough, but the death of children takes this to a totally new level. The second is anger, because often these events are so easily prevented by a relatively small… Continue reading How Can This Happen?
I read an interesting statistic published by the London Fire Service this week. They state that there are over 300 fires a year which are caused by white goods. That is a fire for almost every day of the week and this will only be the ones that they are aware of. How many more… Continue reading Fire Detection Systems
I happen to follow London Fire Brigade on twitter and increasingly I am seeing more and more fires started as a result of people buying cheap inferior products on-line such as hair straighteners, phone chargers etc. Now on this mornings news there are already incidents of the same happening with cheaper Hoverboard models. Items that… Continue reading Make Sure You Wake Up If You Have An Unwelcome Fire This Christmas
A couple of weeks ago we completed our periodic assessment by the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) . Most members of the public have probably never heard of them, but this organisation are the security industry’s equivalent of what is now called “Gas Safe” formerly “Corgi” and their role is too ensure that people who purchase… Continue reading Why Accreditation Is Important
This weekend the clocks are adjusted once again, back one hour, so you are being given an extra hour. What will you do with your extra hour? Whatever it is, the great thing is that you have the choice to do whatever you please! At GuardHome we have always felt that your time is far too… Continue reading A Change In Time
Three years ago, Harlow residents were shocked to hear about how a whole family of a mother and her five children in Barn Mead were totally wiped out as a result of a fire. Various theories abound but here we are 3 years down the line and still there are no answers, as this report… Continue reading Fire Kills – So Why Do So Many People Ignore The Risk?
