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
I love a security challenge that is a bit unusual and exercises my technical ability. We have a CCTV client in central London who is having problems with vagrants and other ne’er do wells occupying their open basement areas for their nefarious activities at night. (This has only become apparent since we installed their shiny… Continue reading Vagrants Keep Out
As a lover of science fiction, I like nothing more to imagine that I could travel round the universe visiting strange new worlds, seeking out new civilisations etc etc. But I know it is only an artificial image created by clever special effects and computer graphics and will never be a reality for quite some… Continue reading We live in the real world – and deliver real world CCTV systems
With the news full of the forthcoming EU referendum, I thought if would be cool to have a little voting session of our own. For the past couple of years our tag line has been Seriously Good Security For People Who Take Their Security Seriously, a bit of a tongue twister and perhaps it tries… Continue reading Our New Tag Line – Dedicated To You Security And Safety
We always fully check every security system before they are installed in our clients home, but when it comes to a totally new system we thoroughly evaluate it in our workshops to determine if it is good enough to be sold. If we believe that a product does not meet our exacting standards or might… Continue reading Announcing Our New SECURE Remote Control Alarm System
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?
It isn’t just our clients that we protect with our systems. Attempted Break-In This morning at around 4am my house alarm went off. It was because this chap and his mate attempted to break into my van. They were foiled because we fit our house alarm sensors in our vans to protect the contents and… Continue reading #GuardHomeVanSafe- Thieves Thwarted
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
At a business level, burglary is bad news for the police. It is labour intensive and difficult to secure convictions, so when their organisations are already under pressure due to staff shortages, further cuts will only exacerbate the problem. Sara Thornton, Head of the National Police Chiefs Council stated earlier this year that in some… Continue reading Are Police Force Reductions Opening Your Doors To Crime – Are You Serious?
In the last couple of weeks, we have been invited to look at a couple of security systems installed by other companies. What we have seen, if you pardon the pun, is alarming. Modern professional alarm panels are very sophisticated with over 500 installer settings, (the same cannot be said for DIY systems as these are… Continue reading Amateur Alarm Installers Are Leaving Users Vulnerable To Crime
