It is a very good idea to fit a smoke detector in your home. It really can be a life saver because, at night, it can wake you up if a fire starts and before you sleep forever from smoke inhalation. However, when you leave home a free standing smoke detector won’t be heard by… Continue reading Fire!
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
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?

To kick off the year, I have decided to increase the number of new £250chairs that I am sponsoring for the Victoria Hall in Old Harlow from 2 to 3. I… Continue reading Random Acts of Kindness

Items that… Continue reading Make Sure You Wake Up If You Have An Unwelcome Fire This Christmas
