Security systems for businesses in Leeds

Business security is something we often discuss in our blog posts and following on from last week’s news item on the importance of security, we thought we’d offer a little advice on how to choose the best system for you. A wide range of systems are available, from monitored and bell only alarms, through to CCTV and access control so with this in mind, here’s our brief guide to selecting the right system:

  • Burglar alarms: in simple terms, investing in a burglar alarm is one of the best ways to protect your business from theft. Depending on the nature of your business, alarm systems can be made up of a range of aspects including panic buttons, motion sensors, shock sensors designed to detect broken windows or glass, sirens and perimeter detectors. Once an alarm has been triggered, depending on the type of system you choose, either the police or key holders will be alerted. Bell only systems offer basic protection but it is worth bearing in mind that it is often the sight of an alarm bell box which deters intruders. The most suitable system for your business will depend on a range of factors including the size of your business premises, the value of equipment and stock you hold and the number of staff you have. Our team are always happy to provide advice on the most appropriate system to suit your individual requirements.
  • Camera surveillance: there’s a misconception that CCTV is the preserve of big businesses. This is not the case however, and we have the expertise to help design a system to suit your requirements. The benefits of installing CCTV are clear and not only does it offer an excellent deterrent, it is also a valuable way to record and document evidence if the worst happens.
  • Access control systems: designed to provide you with an effective way to control who can and cannot enter your business premises, there are access control systems to suit all budgets and requirements. Access control systems are ideal for businesses which have a shared entrance or do not have a reception area, or for businesses which need an enhanced level of security. Installing an access control system offers a range of benefits including the elimination of keys and the creation of restricted access areas such as stock rooms.

October is National Home Security Month and with this in mind, we thought we’d offer you some advice on the most effective ways to protect your home from the risk of theft. Contrary to popular belief, the majority of burglaries are carried out by opportune thieves acting on the spur of the moment. Whilst this highlights the importance of ensuring your doors and windows are locked, what else can you to to ensure your property is protected?

Simple steps to improving home security

Although there’s no substitute for a security alarm, there are lots of simple steps you can take to improve the security of your home::

  • Always make sure exterior doors are locked, even when you’re at home.
  • Windows should be fitted with robust locks.
  • If you go away on holiday, use timer switches to switch the radio, TV and lamps on and off as this helps to make your home look occupied.
  • Ask a friend or neighbour to move post out of sight of the front door when you’re away.
  • Illuminate outside areas with security lighting – this will help to deter thieves whilst helping you feel more secure when you return home at night.
  • Never leave a spare key hidden near the front door as this is the first place thieves will look! If you do need to provide access to a spare key the safest thing to do is to fit a key safe.
