Alarm options available to you

There are many precautions that you are able to put in place to protect your home from intruders, one of which are security alarms. An alarm will immediately let you know that someone has entered the premises; many of these alarms will give you a notification via your mobile phone is this happens. To work alongside these high-tech alarms we advise you to have a few lights on timers or leave the radio on if no-one is at the premises to deter any potential burglars.



 Damaged frame? Not to worry

During the winter months it has been proven that the likelihood of being burgled increases, even so 54% of people do not have a security alarm or any form of monitored protection. There are simple ways of mitigating the risk by locking windows and doors or leaving a light or radio on a timer, so it looks like someone is home. However, to add that extra bit of security our team can install a wide range of security alarms; some of which can be controlled by your phone. You will receive a notification as soon as someone approaches and enters the premises.

 Protect yourself from Burglaries

With the evenings rolling in earlier and dark setting in sooner the autumn and winter months are the perfect time for burglaries to occur. Our team here at Spectrum Security can install deadlocks to all window and door frames to make sure you are protected at all times.

 Grilles are the way to go!

Many shy away from having additional security on their commercial properties as they think it looks too obtrusive. However, choosing the right grilles may actually increase the kerbside appeal. As well as being more aesthetically pleasing, they are very cost effective as potentially reducing insurance premium by adding another layer of security. They are very versatile so you can put them almost anywhere, ensuring your property is safe from thieves at all times.  They come is a variety of colours too!


 Make Sure You Are Prepared.

Although fires occur very seldom when they do, they cause enough damage to shut your business for a while putting livelihoods at risk. So to ensure you can be back on your feet quicker why not install fire shutters to your commercial property? The shutters stop the fire from spreading any further, preventing more damage being caused. The shutters automatically activate when they detect a fire or even smoke nearby and can contain a fire for up to 4 hours! After all it is better to be safe than sorry.  


 Don't Let the Burglars Win!

Having the correct security system can be vital in catching a burglar in the act or once the burglary has taken place provide evidence of the break in for police and insurance.
