Security Overview

There are many companies offering security solutions all over the UK, in fact, security is one of the very few growth industries today. The majority of security contractors offer an exceptional level of service with complete security packages and custom solutions to suit individual requirements, but like other industries, there are some bad apples and you need to do your due diligence when hiring. Security services offered typically include CCTV systems ranging from single "front door" camera systems to state of the art installations covering large commercial sites, fire alarm systems, lock fitting, burglar & intruder alarms, security gates & bollards, security grills, roller shutters, security fencing, safes & safe removals, access control & door entry systems, BT Redcare, DualCom, and secure remote controlled roller garage doors,.

Why Fit an Alarm System?

Protecting your home or business premises makes sound financial sense, in addition to offering a higher level of safety and security, many studies show alarmed properties are far less likely to be broken into and prevention is certainly better than cure when it comes to criminals entering your property! Remember that 100% wireless systems are available if the thought of messy wiring is putting you off fitting a security system, but even conventional wired systems professionally installed will be unobtrusive, even in period properties. The 3 main types of alarm system are Audible only; Audible with a Speech dialler and Monitored systems. The best type of system for your home or business is best discussed with your security specialist.

Locksmith Service

Possibly the most common service within the security industry is a locksmith service. If you need to replace your door lock local installers can source and fit quality security locks like the Banham Patented Lock, Yale, Chubb, Union, Era, Cisa and Ingersoll locks. Locksmiths are generally on 24 hour call to repair damage and secure your property after a break in, but they also offer affordable precautions which are approved to British Standard 3621/2007 and marked with the British Standard kite mark to meet the standards of the insurance industry, which could even mean cheaper insurance costs for your home or commercial premises..

Typical Security Projects

Whereas some security companies will offer a wide range of services to both commercial and domestic customers, many local security contractors will specialise in a certain area, for example burglar, security & intruder alarms; CCTV; fire alarm systems; security garage doors; roller shutters; high security fencing; security gates & bollards or security grills for stores. The costs can vary tremendously with security products and installation, but as a rough guide the supply and fit of a basic house alarm system starts from around £500, but extra services such as integrated fire alarm, key-holder monitoring, speech dialler, annual maintenance and automatic police response will increase the costs considerably. With all security products it is highly recommended that you speak to a security specialist for advice before buying or attempting a DIY installation.

Choosing a Security Specialist

It makes sense to choose an NSI Gold approved contractor who is also a member of the Master Locksmiths Association, that way you know that all your security installations are fitted to the highest standard and comply with insurance requirements, plus you have the peace of mind that the contractors have already been through a vetting process. when asking security contractors to quote for a job or offer advice, the first step will be an appraisal from one of their professional surveyors, followed by a free no obligation quotation. Always check references and enquire about the levels of ongoing support, 24-hour support service is a must for many alarm installations so check the costs of annual service contracts in addition to installation costs. Beware of pushy salesman and pressure to sign up, all reputable locksmiths and security companies will have no problem offering a free of charge, no obligation security consultation to find out more about their services.
