Don’t underestimate the importance of home security

We are often contacted by homeowners who have just been burgled and are looking for a way to protect their home going forward. In our experience, it is much better to ensure your home is always protected, rather than waiting until the worst happens. Having adequate security in place will not only save significant stress, upset and expense, it will also provide you with peace of mind and could even help to reduce your home insurance premiums.

Home security doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive and we are always happy to offer advice on the best security solutions for your home and family. Here are just a few ways to enhance your home’s security:

  • A security alarm is a must and thanks to developments in technology, it is now possible to monitor, set or un-set an alarm via a smartphone app. The latest wireless alarms are quick and simple to install: because they don’t require extensive cabling, installation time is kept to a minimum with every little mess.
  • CCTV is no longer reserved for shopping centres and public spaces; offering an ideal way to provide your home with enhanced protection 24/7. We have the expertise to install a range of CCTV systems: from simple systems with just one camera, through to multiple cameras which are linked to a security alarm.

Lockdown security checklist for businesses

Business security installations in Leeds from FirstEye

As we’re currently in a second lockdown, many businesses have been forced to close their doors and shut up shop. Unfortunately opportunistic intruders are, once again, using this opportunity to target commercial premises, restaurants, pubs and construction sites. With this in mind, it is now more important than ever to ensure that your business has the security protection it deserves: not just for the current lockdown but for the future too.

Is your business premises sufficiently protected?

The current situation is already challenging enough for businesses so we’ve compiled a short checklist which covers practical ways to safeguard your business from crime:

  1. Intruder alarm: if your business isn’t protected by an intruder alarm, now is the time to have one installed. Furthermore, it’s worth bearing in mind that most commercial premises must have an alarm fitted in order to validate insurance. Here at FirstEye we are SSAIB accredited which may enable you to claim a discount on your insurance, depending on the terms and conditions. For further information, please see the About Us & Accreditations page of our website.
  2. CCTV: CCTV is becoming increasingly popular with business owners and it’s not hard to see why. CCTV is widely considered by burglars themselves to be the single biggest deterrent, especially thanks to the latest systems which are designed to send real time alerts to a smartphone or tablet. We have the expertise to install the latest CCTV systems, with options to suit all budgets and requirements. If you do already have a system, take time to check that it’s in good working order and that cameras have been positioned to their best effect.
  3. Security lighting: if a commercial property is broken into it’s much more likely to be under the cover of darkness. Security lighting is a budget-friendly and highly effective way to stop thieves in their tracks. For enhanced and highly effective protection, why not consider installing security lighting that’s integrated with an intruder alarm and CCTV?

What you need to know before installing a CCTV system

CCTV systems installed in Leeds by FirstEye

CCTV offers enhanced security for your home. However, before you install a system, there are a number of things you need to consider. Protecting your home with a CCTV system comes with a set of responsibilities such as the privacy of your neighbours, for example. Here are a few ways to ensue you make the most of CCTV technology whilst also meeting privacy regulations:

• Before installing a CCTV system you should take time to consider whether it is the best solution for you and your property. At FirstEye we work with homeowners throughout Leeds and will use our expertise to help you find the most appropriate privacy system. For some properties, for example, motion sensor security lighting may be sufficient.
• External cameras should be carefully positioned 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.
• In order to comply with data protection regulations you’ll need to display 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 select 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 covers 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.
