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 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?
In recent months there have been thieves who specialise in stealing power tools from vans parked outside of the owners homes. They drive around at the dead of night selecting vehicles to target. They have a master key that allows them to unlock the van and turn off the van alarms. Even CCTV does not… Continue reading Foiling The Van Thieves
Every GuardHome system that we install is based on our professional in depth survey conducted with the home/business owner to ensure that the system is based on the requirements of the client. If you have suffered a burglary or there is another qualifying set of circumstances that we determine to be relevant, we will give… Continue reading Fast Track – A Free GuardHome Service
Our new tag line (above) that I recently introduced, isn’t simply a play on words. It is intended to make potential clients think seriously about making a choice if they plan to make an investment in security, because that is how security should be looked upon, as an investment. Your return on this investment is… Continue reading Seriously Good Security For People Who Take Their Security (And Welfare) Seriously
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 mandates that ALL business premises (and this care homes, guest houses etc. often referred to as HMO’s House in Multi Occupation) conduct a fire risk assessment to protect the occupants and premises against fire. So wether you run a large multi-national business or a small B&B, you are… Continue reading New Fire System Installed in Sentinel House
Well meaning advice must always be viewed with a degree of caution, as it can sometimes be misleading. I was talking to a recent burglary victim the other day, who had recently moved into an out-of-the way rural area. They consulted the Police when they moved in. The Police visited their home and remarked that… Continue reading Good Advice or a Liability?
This might seem a bit obvious, but perhaps it is something I should consider turning my hand to? Why you might ask? It is becoming increasingly apparent that people are buying security from everyone else other than professional alarm companies. You only have to take a glance at the upper levels of properties to see… Continue reading We don’t do heart surgery!
This week is very exciting for us at GuardHome as it sees work starting on our new offices. After almost ten years of running my business from a very cosy room in my home, I have decided we are sufficiently mature to have our own offices. Some of the local residents may already have seen… Continue reading An exciting new phase for GuardHome
As our previous post identified, not all businesses that you deal with think that your time is valuable. At GuardHome we certainly do! How would you know this? Quite simply, it is written into our company charter that we will always give you a specific date and time for any appointments that we make with… Continue reading Do you value your time?
