Technology new and old

 gold locks

We understand the importance of moving with the times. As intruders become more savvy, the security industry must constantly work to out manoeuvre them. We keep an expert team of staff fully trained so that if a new security product comes on the market, our people will know how to install it. We have just moved into the area of retina scanning, seen by many as the ultimate in security for businesses such as banks and for the storage of sensitive documents.

Latest Technology

We supply and fit fingerprint safes for many customers. Rather than remembering a code or where you have stored a key, what better way to ensure security than keeping the ‘key’ on you at all times? We work with all types of surveillance equipment and modern security technology. Call today to see what we can do for you.

Effective deterrents

The power of deterrents such as CCTV should not be underestimated. Visible security cameras at your commercial or industrial premises will alert potential intruders to how seriously you take the security of your business and therefore what sort of security systems you are likely to have inside. What’s more, the risk of behaviour being captured on camera deters potential criminals. At the same time, CCTV gives you the chance to monitor your premises’ security in real time. We can work with you to decide on the CCTV system that works best for your building so that no vulnerable area is left without surveillance.

A testament to the proactive approach taken here, is that we make use of one of the latest and most innovative security measurements taken, retina scanning. It sounds like something from an action film, however we make use of this technology which is considered to be at the forefront of security for businesses, and is used by many banks and other high stake companies. Other areas of security and innovation where we make use of the latest technologies, and the most secure and practical methods of identification is in the use of fingerprint identification.

Using the uniqueness of an individual persons fingerprint to open the safe containing maybe your family heirlooms is both highly secure and seeing things from the more practical view of the individual.

Our team does not only want to make sure your belongings are safe, and accessible only by you, but also that it’s done in a convenient and practical way. In this there is no risk of losing keys, remembering codes, or dealing with difficult and complicated mechanisms to unlock your safe.

We also with all types of integrated systems of surveillance and many other types of equipment and technology, get in touch with us to find the best solution for you.
