LED security lighting: a bright idea for home or business security

Powerful security lighting designed to protect your home or business

Flood lights, as the name suggest, are designed to flood large areas with a very bright from of light. Flood lights are one of the most powerful types of lighting available and as such they offer a highly effective way to help protect the outside areas of a building, whether it is a domestic, commercial or industrial property.

Security lighting is a popular, cost-effective way to improve security in a number of different locations such as sports venues, outdoor theatres and school playgrounds. Simple to install and relatively cheap to buy, LED security lighting is now used as a way to protect buildings of all shapes and sizes; from small bungalows through to factories and warehouses.

The powerful bright light emitted by LED security makes them ideal for use as a security measure, particularly when it comes to deterring potential intruders. LED security lighting can be used in a number of different ways and it is possible to install lighting which has to be manually operated, or sensor-triggered systems which are designed to detect movement.

LED lighting technology has been transformed over recent years and this form of lighting is very cheap to run thanks to the small amount of energy used. LED light bulbs also last much longer than other types of bulbs and because they are incredibly durable, are ideal for use in outdoor locations.

The responsibilities that come with installing a CCTV system

CCTV offers enhanced security for your home but before you install a system, there are a number of things you need to consider. Using CCTV comes with a set of responsibilities and it’s important to be aware of your neighbour’s privacy, for example. Here are a few tips on how to ensue you make the most of CCTV technology whilst meeting privacy regulations:

  • Before installing a CCTV system you should consider whether it is the best solution for you and your property. Here at FirstEye we work with homeowners throughout Leeds and will use our expertise to help you find the most appropriate privacy system. In some cases, for example, motion sensor security lighting may be sufficient.
  • External cameras should be carefully placed to ensure that they don’t invade your neighbour’s privacy or the privacy of passers by.
  • If your CCTV cameras do happen to capture part of a neighbouring property, or a property across the road, you must ensure you comply with data protection regulations.
  • To comply with data protection regulations you’ll need to put in place signage to let other people know that CCTV cameras are in operation, only provide access to the footage to those who need it (e.g. the police) and choose a system which enables you to choose what to record.
  • You should always make sure that the date and time on your system are correct and that images aren’t stored for longer than necessary. This means that footage must be deleted once it is no longer required.
  • The information recorded should only be used for the purposes for which the system was installed.

The above points cover the main points to consider and for further information on how to ensure you’re using your system correctly, please get in touch with us or see the latest government guidance.

Shining a spotlight on security lighting

Security lighting installed in Leeds by FirstEye

We know it’s still only August but it already seems to be getting dark earlier! Unfortunately the long winter nights tends to signal an increase in burglaries as thieves take the opportunity to use the cover of darkness to break into homes. With this in mind, one of the most effective way to deter thieves is to install security lighting, designed to illuminate the exterior of your home or business, preventing burglars from using darkness to find somewhere to hide.

LED security lighting designed to meet your requirements

Here at FirstEye we have the expertise to install a range of highly effective security lighting solutions; from sensor lights, designed to be triggered by movement, through to patio lighting, garage lighting and exterior feature lighting.

Business premises can benefit from security lighting installed over all entrance points, with additional lighting to protect parking areas if required. In addition, security lighting can also be used to complement other security systems such as CCTV, helping to provide a clear picture or highlight areas which are protected by access control.

For domestic customers, placing lights above your front and back door, or patio doors if you have them, not only helps to deter thieves but will also ensure you feel more secure when arriving home at night. Garden lighting looks lovely and offers a beautiful way to highlight trees and planting, whilst also discouraging thieves from entering the space. Patio lighting provides another practical solution which not only enhances the look of your garden at night, but will also help to make outdoors areas safer whilst providing you with light when sitting outdoors in the evening.

Sheds and garages are being increasingly targeted by thieves who know they are often used to store expensive bikes, DIY and sports equipment such as golf clubs. Sheds and garages need protection too and installing security lighting helps to increase security by providing a visible, effective deterrent.

Make your home safer with smart home technology

Smart home security systems installed in Leeds by FirstEye

In last week’s blog post we outlined what smart home systems are and how they work. This week we’ll talk about how installing a smart home system could help to make your home safer and more secure.

Preventing burglary is something we often discuss in the FirstEye blog as it’s far better to deter burglars from entering your home, rather than installing a security system after a break in. With this in mind, many smart home security systems provide a visible deterrent from outside your home, letting burglars know that your home is protected. In addition, by using your system to control lighting for example, you’ll be able to give the impression that your home is occupied even when you’re not there.

Smart doorbells also help to provide an effective deterrent as they provide the capability to ‘answer’ the door regardless of where you are. This is useful if you’re expecting a delivery as you’ll be able to instruct the driver to leave a parcel out of sight in a safe place, or to vet callers. Smart doorbells are designed to be controlled using smart home app so you’ll be in control 24/7 regardless of where you are.

Contact FirstEye to find out more about the benefits of smart security for your home

Smart home systems are quick and simple to install, with the option to start with just one device and then add more to the system over time. Here at FirstEye we work with homeowners in Leeds, helping them choose smart home security solutions, designed to meet their budget and requirements. If you’d like to find out more about the benefits smart home security could offer you, please get in touch by calling 0113 228 8599 or email quote@firsteye.co.uk

smart home security

What is smart home security?

Are smart home systems the future of home security?

Smart technology seems to be everywhere these days: from fingerprint recognition and contactless card payments, through to smart home appliances. Smart home security systems offer the very latest way to protect your home and are designed to provide all the features you’d expect from a burglar alarm but with added extras. Here at FirstEye we install smart home security systems for homeowners in Leeds and whether you’re considering investing in a system or have never heard of the technology, we thought we’d shed some light on what smart home security could mean for you.

This week we’ll focus upon what smart home security systems are and what they do, followed by a post next week on how smart home technology could make your home safer and how systems are installed.

Smart home systems – what are they and what do they do?

Smart home security systems are sets of security gadgets such as a burglar alarm, CCTV cameras, door locks and sensors which are connected to each other through the internet. Designed to be upscaled or downscaled according to your individual requirements, smart home systems can be tailored to include one or many security devices.

Regardless of how many devices are used in a smart home system, they are driven and linked by a central point or hub which is wirelessly connected to the internet. The system is controlled using an app which can be viewed on a smart phone or tablet, regardless of where you are. Not only will this allow you to monitor what’s going on in your home when you’re not there, you’ll also be able to remotely control things such as lighting, central heating or even appliances.

Smart home systems can be added to over time so you might, for example, wish to start with a smart alarm system before adding a couple of CCTV cameras or a smart doorbell at a later date. The choice is yours and we’ll work closely with you to design and install a system which suits your home and family.

Smart home systems have the potential to offer a number of advantages and this is something we’ll cover in next week’s post.

Residential security systems installed in Leeds by FirstEye

You know home security is very important and you know you’d like to protect your property and valuables from theft.

All properties will benefit from the installation of a burglar alarm as not only do they offer a very visible deterrent, they also provide effective, round-the-clock protection. We’ll help you decide which alarm is right for your home and family; whether you need a monitored alarm system, one of the latest ‘smart’ alarms or a simple bell-only system.

CCTV is proving increasing popular with homeowners, largely due to the ability to monitor your home whilst you’re not there.

The extra benefits CCTV could offer your business

CCTV systems designed and installed by FirstEye

In last week’s blog post we covered some of the ways CCTV can provide you with an invaluable extra set of eyes and ears, helping you give your business the protection it deserves. This week we are going to talk about some of the additional benefits of CCTV – some of which you might not have thought of!

CCTV can help you improve the way you run your business

Although CCTV offers an obvious way to help improve the security of your business, there are several little-known benefits which can prove incredibly helpful:

  • Enhance employee accountability: there’s nothing more disheartening than realising that a member of your team is stealing from you. However, many employees don’t realise the impact that stealing even very low-cost items can have upon a business. CCTV offers a highly effective way to stop the problem in its tracks, deterring would be thieves and making previous culprits think twice.
  • Improve performance: CCTV also provides a solution to the problem of staff under-performance. No-one likes to feel as though they’re being watched and there are rules and regulations surrounding staff monitoring but CCTV can provide a way to let your team know that you’re aware of what’s going on.
  • Decrease your business insurance: the cost of insuring a business seems to increase year-on-year at an alarming rate. However, installing CCTV could mean that your insurance company gives you a discount on your premium. As always, shopping around to find the best deal is a great way to cut costs so why not see what installing CCTV could help you save on your business insurance?
