Control who has access with access control

As increasing numbers of businesses re-open and we start to find ways of managing the ‘new normal’, the challenge of controlling customer or visitor numbers can be daunting. Installing an access control system offers a simple, cost effective way to control and monitor who has access to your business premises and will provide reassurance that you are meeting latest guidelines.

Access control systems installed in Leeds by FirstEye

At FirstEye we have many years of experience in installing access control systems for business, commercial and industrial customers. We’ll work with you to find the best system for your requirements: we’ll discuss the options available and help you choose a product which is in line with your needs and budget.

Access control systems vary in complexity but in essence they all do the same thing. Entrance ways to a building, or parts of a building, are controlled by intercom or video access. Staff can be provided with access through an electronic ‘key’ such as a pass code, or access card.

Access control offers a range of benefits including:

  • Ideal for use in a wide range of buildings and business premises including shops, offices, medical clinics, schools, nurseries and residential care homes.
  • Security is instantly improved as you’ll know who’s in the building at any particular time. In addition, unwanted visitors can be turned away before they have a chance to enter the building.
  • Access control systems are simple to install and are available in a range of options.
  • Many systems can be integrated with a security alarm, fire alarm or CCTV system.

Make sure your home is protected

Residential security systems installed in Leeds by FirstEye

As lock down slowly eases, many of us are keeping our fingers crossed that we’ll be able to get away on holiday this summer!

Whether you’re going to be able to go on holiday this summer or not, now is the perfect time to ensure your home is safe, secure and protected. The sight of a security system alone – whether a burglar alarm or CCTV system – is usually enough to deter the majority of thieves and rather than waiting until the worst happens and you’re broken into, it’s much less stressful to ensure your home is adequately protected in the first place.

Here at FirstEye we work closely with our clients to install a wide range of security solutions, with options to suit all budgets and requirements:

• CCTV: increasingly popular with homeowners, CCTV offers unbeatable protection 24/7.
• Security alarms: an essential piece of security kit, an alarm will protect your home whilst deterring potential thieves.
• Access control: particularly suited to elderly vulnerable homeowners, the latest access control systems offer the capability to check who’s at the door without having to answer it.
• Smart doorbells: these work in a similar way to access control systems and will enable you to ‘answer’ the door even when you’re not at home. A great way to avoid missed deliveries and verify callers, a smart doorbell offers a cost effective way to enhance security.

Don’t give burglars a place to hide – protect your home with security lighting

Security lighting installed in Leeds by FirstEye

Although we’re at the start of summer and enjoying the long, warm evenings, unfortunately thieves make maximum use the cover of darkness to break into homes. One of most effective way to deter thieves is to install security lighting, designed to illuminate the exterior of your home with bright light to prevent and deter burglars from finding somewhere to hide.

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

Security lighting to suit all requirements

Placing lights above your front and back door, or patio doors if you have them, not only helps to deter thieves but will also make you feel more secure when arriving home at night. Garden lighting looks stunning and offers a beautiful way to highlight trees and planting, with the additional benefit of 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.

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.

What’s your plan for business security?

Business, commercial and industrial security solutions installed in Leeds by FirstEye

Although any, many businesses are facing incredibly challenging times at the moment, business security is still an important issue and if overlooked, can prove incredibly costly and stressful to resolve. If you run your own business you’re likely to be all too aware of your responsibility to ensure workplace safety. Whilst the term ‘workplace safety’ includes things like electrical safety etc., it’s important to make careful consideration for the personal safety of your employees, customers, whilst also ensuring your business assets are protected.

At FirstEye we have many years of experience in working with business of all shapes and sizes in Leeds, providing a wide range of highly effective security solutions. We know that not everyone has the big budgets needed to afford the latest high-tech security kit and with this in mind, we offer flexible solutions to suit all budgets and requirements.

We also understand that the security needs of different businesses can vary significantly as an office-based business, for example, is unlikely to need as much protection as a shop full of expensive stock, or factory used to house valuable equipment. Security is vital important for all businesses – regardless of what they do – and we work closely with business owners to find a system that’s ideally suited to their needs.

Planning your businesses’ security

Unfortunately many business owners fail to think about security on a regular basis and as a result have no idea if they have sufficient protection. A ‘head in the sand’ approach might work the majority of the time, but it can prove very expensive and stressful if the worst happens and your business suffers a break in. Taking an inventory of your existing security systems is a great way to begin and spending a little time checking your alarm is also a good place to start. Here are a few things you could think about:

• Is your business protected by an alarm, and if it is, when was the last time it was serviced?
• Does your business have a reception area? Is it protected by CCTV?
• Do you store sensitive information such as financial records?
• Is your business in a remote area?
• Does your business have a car park and is it protected from unauthorised vehicles?

Thinking about the security of your business is a good way to identify any areas which are vulnerable and would benefit from extra protection. Reception areas, for example, can really benefit from the protection offered by CCTV, whilst an access control system is a cost-effective way to control who has access to your business premises. Car parks often benefit from the enhanced security provided by barriers, whilst security lighting offers a way to help staff feel more secure and deter potential intruders. Last and by no means least, ensuring your security alarm is in good working order, or installing an alarm if you don’t already have one is an unbeatable way to increase the security of your business.

CCTV: your eyes and ears when you can’t be there

CCTV system designed and installed in Leeds by FirstEye

Running a business is hard, especially in the current and extremely challenging environment. Whether you have your own restaurant, shop or cafe, you’ll know how difficult it can be to keep an eye on things; especially at the moment. This is where CCTV comes in and by installing a camera system not only will you improve the security of your business, you’ll also find it provides you with a very useful extra set of eyes and ears!

Installing a CCTV system offers business owners a cost effective way to protect their assets and will provide you with the capability to guard your business when you’re not there. Here are just some of the ways CCTV could help you:

• Deterrent: when deciding which business to target, a burglar will always choose the premises which isn’t protected by CCTV. It’s also worth remembering that CCTV will help to deter shoplifters and can even help to put off dishonest members of staff from stealing.
• Insurance: Losing expensive stock to break-ins, shoplifting or staff theft can be heartbreaking and very expensive. CCTV enables you to review footage, find out what’s been going on and provide the police with valuable, usable evidence.
• Safety: Your safety and the safety of your staff is very important and installing CCTV is a great way to provide reassurance and an additional level of protection.
• Professional: Installing CCTV is a visibale way to demonstrate that you take the security of your business seriously.
• Monitoring: CCTV will enable you to keep an eye on your business when you’re not there; providing you with reassurance and peace of mind that everything is as it should be.

Control who has access with access control

Access control systems installed in Leeds by FirstEye

This week has seen us enter a new, slightly more relaxed set of lock down rules, with increasing numbers of businesses such as estate agents, manufacturers and garden centres cautiously re-opening. Social distancing guidelines must still be followed and although implementing safe working practices is relatively simple for some businesses, others are likely to find it more difficult.

In one of our recent blog posts we outlined the potential benefits of installing a remote body thermometer; a piece of equipment which is proving particularly useful for GP surgeries, health centres, schools nurseries, care homes and many others. However, some businesses may find it beneficial to have complete control over who has access to their premises and installing an access control system is just one way to help protect yourself, your staff, customers or clients.

Access control systems are available in a wide range of options, with choices to suit most business premises, including those with shared entrances. Visitor access is given either by an intercom or combined intercom camera system, key code or remote key fob. At FirstEye we can help you select the most effective option for your business and will design and install a system which meets your budget and requirements.
