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
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?
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.

So as soon as the burglars attempted to enter… Continue reading Are The Days Of The Dummy Deterrent Numbered?

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
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 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

Local people have families in the area, send their kids to school, support local events and spend money in local shops.
