Although we’re not quite there yet, as a result of this week’s Government announcement, many businesses will be starting to prepare for opening up again during the spring. As things slowly get back to ‘normal’, with more and more businesses returning to work or life in the office, now is a great time to revue the security of your business. Planning ahead is not only an effective way to avoid the stress and expense of a costly break in, it will also provide much needed of peace of mind.

When it comes to choosing in and investing in a security system for your business, we know that it can be difficult to decide which the best options are. Here are a few things to think about to help you choose the most cost-effective security solutions for your business premises:

• Is your business premises open to the general public? Shops, cafes, hotels, restaurants and office premises with public reception areas often benefit from the installation of a CCTV system. Not only does CCTV provide a highly effective deterrent against theft, it can also prove useful in the event of a police investigation or insurance claim.
• Do you store valuable stock or have sensitive information stored in your business premises? If you do, installing an access control system will help you monitor and control who has access to particular areas of your premises. In addition, thanks to the latest technology, you’ll be able to monitor your premises 24/7 via an app on your smartphone or tablet.
• Are you working from home? Don’t overlook the fact that IT equipment is expensive to replace so make sure your home is fully protected with a reliable home security system.

Simple steps to protect your business from crime

Businesses of all shapes and sizes can fall victim to crime and as such, all businesses need to take steps to safeguard themselves. However, many business owners are either concerned about the cost of installing security systems. Improving the security of your business doesn’t have to be expensive and by protecting your business now, rather than waiting until the worst happens, you could save yourself significant amounts of stress, time and money.

Here are a few simple steps you can take to help protect your business premises from break-ins and crime:

  • Make sure your business premises looks smart from the outside as an unkempt appearance gives the impression that you don’t take security seriously and there are unlikely to be any security measures in place.
  • Internal theft can be a real problem for many businesses and whilst an access control system, for example, offers protection for areas such as stock rooms, it’s also important to heave clear policies. Holding regular training sessions and random inspections of petty cash or deliveries can help stop internal theft in its tracks.
  • If your business premises already has an intruder alarm make sure you use it. If your alarm system is unreliable or outdated, consider installing a new system.
  • Installing security lighting is a relatively low-cost way to protect the outside areas of your business, whilst helping to give the impression that the inside is occupied even when it’s not.
  • Carrying out regular reviews of security will not only provide you with peace of mind, it’s also a good way to identify any weak points.

Are you using your domestic CCTV system correctly?

Domestic CCTV systems installed in Leeds by FirstEye

Whilst installing a CCTV system offers an excellent way to improve the security of your home, it’s important to ensure you meet Government guidelines and that you respect other people’s privacy.

If your cameras are positioned so that they only capture images within the boundary of your private property, including the garden, then data protection laws won’t apply to you. However, if your system captures images of people outside your private boundaries such as your neighbours’ homes and gardens, a public footpath, street or shared spaces, then both the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 will apply to you.

How to use CCTV responsibly

Before installing a CCTV system it’s important to spend time thinking about how to position the cameras so that your neighbours’ property, shared spaces and public spaces aren’t intruded upon. In addition, here are a few other things you might consider before installing CCTV:

  • try to find the most privacy-friendly way to position the cameras
  • consider carefully which areas you want the cameras to capture
  • think about whether you need to record the images or whether a live feed is adequate
  • if your cameras don’t capture images outside your boundaries, then the data protection laws wont apply to you

FirstEye – experts in CCTV installations in West Yorkshire

If you’re considering installing a CCTV system, we have the expertise to help. We can help you choose the best system for your budget and requirements, whilst helping you position the cameras to ensure you have the protection you need, without compromising your neighbours’ privacy.

security lighting installed in Leeds

FirstEye puts a spotlight on security lighting

Whilst security lighting is widely used as a way to prevent crime, it also offers a highly effective way to help you feel safer in your driveway or garden. Here at FirstEye we have the expertise to install security lighting to suit all budgets and requirements; providing a low-cost way to improve the security of your home.

Here are a few examples of how you and your family could benefit from security lighting:

  • Security lighting is an excellent preventative measure. There’s nothing burglars like more than having a dark place to hide and by illuminating the outside areas of your home – gardens, driveway, alleyways etc. – they’re far more likely to target another property.
  • We install LED security floodlights which are energy efficient, high output and economical to run; making them an environmentally friendly way to improve your home’s security.
  • Security lighting also makes a useful addition to other security measures in your home, such as CCTV. Security lighting works extremely well alongside CCTV cameras as it helps to provide clearer pictures when it’s dark. In addition, effective security lighting will also highlight your alarm’s bell box to provide yet another deterrent.

Get in touch with FirstEye and protect your home from crime

When it comes to crime, prevention really is better than cure. Remember that thieves will always choose the homes that are easiest to break into. So, if your home is currently unprotected, why not get in touch with us to find out how we can help you improve security?

Top tips for improving your home’s security

Top tips for improving your home’s security

The start of a new year is a great time to improve your home’s security. At FirstEye we offer a wide range of security solutions, with cost-effective options to suit all budgets and requirements. From wireless burglar alarms and security lighting, through to smart doorbells, securing your home doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. Here are just a few examples of simple ways to give your home and family the protection they deserve:

• Security lighting is a low-cost way to help prevent burglary. Security lights illuminate otherwise dark areas which thieves use as ‘protection’ when attempting to gain access to a property. Installing security lighting offers a proven and highly effective deterrent as by preventing thieves from having a place to hide, you’ll put them off trying to break into your home.
• A security alarm offers great protection for your home, so if you don’t have one or yours is old or outdated, now is the time to have one installed. We install alarms in Leeds to suit all budgets and requirements, including wireless alarms designed to be controlled using a smartphone app. Remember than often the sight of an alarm bell box alone is enough to put off most thieves.
• Not only do smart door bells offer a safe way to see who’s at the door without having to answer it; they can also help prevent missed deliveries! Smart door bells are ideal for all types of property and can prove particularly useful for elderly or vulnerable residents. Smart door bells contain a tiny camera which, when the door bell is rung, will send images of who’s at the door to a smart phone app. It’s also possible to speak to the caller so if you’re not at home when that parcels delivered, you’ll be able to let them know where to leave it.
