At home, you and your family should feel safe and secure, and not have to worry about burglary while you sleep, or be concerned every time you pop to the shops, to work, or go on holiday.

At work, you and your staff should feel protected against opportunist thieves, violent crime, robbery and theft.

Sadly, having good physical security is rarely enough to stop or deter a crime and it is only with the added benefit of electronic security that an effective security solution is achievable.

With a Security First (UK) professionally installed intruder alarm you can enjoy peace of mind 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Alarms proactively deter criminals and if you are broken into, a sounding alarm will reduce the amount of time a criminal will spend in your property as the noise will potentially draw attention to the intruder. Also, the intruder will not know if the system has communicated with keyholders, guarding companies or the Police.

CCTV is an important tool for dealing with many types of crime. Whilst it usually cannot physically stop the crime from happening it does reduce the risk and also helps in understanding what occurred, with the potential to use recorded images as evidence to catch the perpetrators.

At work, in addition to intruder alarms and CCTV, an Access Control system will aid in ensuring your stock, valuable data and equipment is adequately protected.

Most people unfortunately only install security after a crime has been committed or as a result of insurance insistence. However, you should not underestimate the emotional trauma, distress and aggravation that a break-in can cause, not to mention the loss of irreplaceable items or data. Just as many businesses do not recover from a serious fire, the loss of essential data can have the same effect.

It is also a fact that once a property has been broken into, a repeat burglary often happens within a few weeks. This is usually because the original thieves passed on information to other criminals about what else is at the property, or because the thieves know that most goods would by then have been replaced!

Don’t be a victim of crime. Be safe, be secure, put Security First!
