Have you considered how much your business could be disrupted following a break in?
It is not only the potential loss of goods and/or equipment that are a result of a break in. Imagine if your computers or server were stolen how this would impact upon the survival of your business – do you have a reliable back up routine that saves business critical data? – where is this back up stored – is it on site, off site , or better still stored within the “cloud” or another on line service provider.
Security is often seen as an unnecessary spend as it is difficult to put a return on investment. The cost of business disruption could be far greater than the cost of a good quality security system.
Having a professionally installed security system this will help to minimise the risk of being broken into and can also provide a degree of security for your staff as well as your physical assets.
Utilising the latest remote monitoring equipment from Emizon, and CSL Dualcom enables us to notify you of any alarm situation as promptly as possible following the incident, and where appropriate seek police attendance to those systems configured for this feature.
Being NSI Gold accredited for the installation and maintenance of Intruder Alarm Systems means that our workmanship is audited to ensure it meets the highest standards possible.
Intruder Alarms for Residential Properties
Homes with no security measures in place are five times more likely to be burgled than those with simple security measures.
Taking just a few steps can make a big difference in keeping your home safe from burglary. Here are a few tips:
- Lock your doors and windows every time you leave the house, even when you’re just out in the garden, remembering to double-lock UPVC doors (lift handle and turn key)
- Hide all keys, including car keys, out of sight and away from the letterbox (remember a device could be used to hook keys through the letterbox)
- Install a visual burglar alarm
- Install good outside lighting
- Get a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your property
- Leave radios or lights in your house on a timer to make the property appear occupied
- Make sure the fences around your garden are in good condition
- Secure bikes at home by locking them to an immoveable object inside a locked shed or garage
- Keep ladders and tools stored away; don’t leave them outside where they could be used to break into your home
- Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property
- Ensure rear fencing is in good repair
- Improve natural surveillance at the front of your property i.e. trim high hedges
- Mark your property with postcode and house number and register your property for free with Immobilise (opens in a new window)
