  • security flood lighting, shining light on the garden and the area surrounding the home to ensure no dark spaces for intruders to hide, these can be set to be on only when detecting motion or all night
  • security emergency lighting which is a back-up battery powered light that automatically switches on during a power cut
  • door entry systems, a safer less vulnerable way of seeing who is at the entrance, whether that first point of contact is a front door or driveway gates

  • smoke alarms, similar to a fire alarm but senses smoke
  • carbon monoxide detectors which rely on chemistry to work as the detector has a chemical gel housed on the alarm which reacts to carbon monoxide and sets off the alarm

Do I need a local security specialist to 'install burglar alarms, motion detectors or CCTV'?

Having quality surveillance cameras and alarm systems installed is one of the best ways to prevent break-ins or criminal damage. As your protection only works when your security devices are working, it’s super important to enlist specialist help when investing in burglar alarms, local CCTV, outdoor/indoor motion sensor lights or other security measures, making sure they’re set up correctly and functioning as they should.

A specialist engineer or electrician will assess which security measures will be suitable, based on your requirements, budget and location. They can install cameras providing different fields of view, give you complete coverage of your home’s surroundings, and install a motion sensor light on your home’s exterior. They can also take care of door entry system installation, ensuring that you always know who is coming in and out of your home.
