It’s fair to say right now, the focus of many businesses is on their staff, business continuity and getting to grips with the new realities brought about by Covid-19.

There are many challenges facing our security system customers at the moment, ranging from paying their staff, meeting their financial commitments and generally navigating their way through this terrible situation.

Whilst we’d love to help as many businesses in every area possible, we’ll stick to what we know best – installing security systems. 

This means protecting our customers from the impact of crime. 

Security systems installers – how we can help protect your business from crime right now?

As expert installers of CCTV, access control and security alarm systems, we’re on hand to help any business with their current security systems needs.

This includes:

  • CCTV – new requirements, upgrades and maintenance of current video survillance systems
  • Access control – at the moment where onsite staff numbers are low, video intercom systems can help manage deliveries to a businesses premises 
  • Security alarms – crime is an unfortunate fact of life at the best of times. Right now businesses are being urged to take extra precautions.

According to Eurpol, the unfortunate answer is, yes.

Commercial premises and medical facilities are anticipated to be increasingly targeted for organised burglaries.

We’re being very careful with conversations we’re having with businesses at the moment, making certain they’re looking to invest in security systems for the right reasons.

We’re making sure if we do business with a customer it’s because they need it, not simply out of fear.

As you can imagine the last thing we want to do right now is use this current situation to make money but the facts are the facts. Criminals are on the hunt for easy targets. The security systems we install and upgrade are designed to protect our customers from crime.

So how are we doing this? A FREE review of your CCTV, access control and security systems

We’re offering all new and existing customers a free security system review to determine their full requirements and whether the current systems already meet the objectives.

In addition to the security systems review, we are offering both new and existing customers a 20% reduction on any new order during this ongoing crisis.

Our directors, Chris Clifton and Steve Blackwell have released the following statement:

“So many businesses are suffering at the moment. It’s terrible to see the impact this pandemic is having on the lives and livelihoods of good people.

As a gesture of goodwill during this terrible time, we feel it’s only right to do more for our existing and new customers.

Where businesses are concerned about the impact of crime on their premises, we will be offering a free security review and a 20% discount for all orders during this pandemic.” 

A recent article in The Times highlights the growing concern that thieves are targeting unmanned businesses.

We work across many industries, installing a range of security systems such as

  • HD and monitored CCTV – helping to catch criminals in the act
  • Access control systems such as door entry systems, video, audio intercom, and key fob door entry systems
  • Security and intruder alarms – helping to deter criminals from entering a business’ premises 

Here’s a quick run-through of how we can help protect businesses in the current climate:
