Initially, a thorough survey is conducted in order to determine the best security option for the customer. The choice of the three products, shown below, can be offered as part of a package (including all three) or individually installed.

  1. CCTVThis is a very popular product which is becoming ever more affordable. We offer a number of different types of cameras (IP, PTZ etc) but the one best suited for domestic use is a 2.1-megapixel anti-vandal dome camera giving great HD video quality with Infra-Red night vision up to 30 metres. Standard fitting of a 1 Terabyte Hard Drive gives 7 to 10 days recording time and the additional memory capacity can be installed on request. This is a SMART system which means image viewing a functionality can be seen and controlled from a phone or tablet.

3. Wireless Alarms Systems

Not only can this be employed as a stand alone security but integrated with a CCTV system thus further increasing the security of your home.

Why is this such a great product? The answer is two fold. Firstly, it is wireless which makes it easy and quick to install and secondly, that due to its “smartness” it can be operated from phones and tablets in and away from the house in a number of ways.

By downloading the app and adding the smart alarm system to it full functionality can be controlled from a phone/tablet. Hence, entrance and exit delays can be set as well as the easy addition of extra users if needs be. A key fob is also provided which is push button operated that arms/disarms the system, sets the night time or “Home” mode and makes provision for an “SOS but button which is utilised in the case of a personal attack (heaven forbid). A SIM card can be installed in the “controller” which automatically notifies designated appointees of an incident. Finally, there is a more traditional keypad which can also arm and disarm the system by punching in a PIN code
