Running a business in Leeds? Take time to review your security systems

Security advice and installations for businesses in Leeds

Running a business is literally a full time job and many of the business owners we meet say the often find themselves working into the evenings and during the weekends. With this in mind it’s all too easy to become complacent about business security but as we know from experience, when security is overlooked, problems can occur.

Taking time out from the day-to-day running of your business to review security doesn’t have to be as time consuming as it sounds. A simple check of access points such as windows is a great way to detect potential weak points, whilst arranging to have your security alarm serviced will ensure it’s working reliably.

If you feel your businesses’ security systems are weak or inadequate, now is the time to take action and consider installing a new alarm system, CCTV and/or access control. Security systems such as these not only offer a highly effective deterrent to thieves, they’ll provide you with reassurance and could help to reduce your insurance premiums too.

Here at FirstEye we work with business and organisations throughout Leeds, providing them with effective security systems, tailored to meet their individual requirements and budgets. Whether your business is based in a factory, shop, office or warehouse, we offer a range of solutions including:

  • Security alarms designed to protect your business from theft.
  • Fire alarm systems – from simple systems through to complex systems designed to be incorporated with a security alarm.
  • Access control – offering a highly effective way to control who has access to certain areas of your premises, an access control system will help to protect you from internal and external theft.
  • CCTV – an unbeatable way to protect all areas of your business premises, a CCTV system installed by FirstEye can be designed to suit your requirements, covering reception areas, car parks and more.
  • Vehicle barriers and security gates – don’t make it easy for thieves to enter your premises – a security barrier will protect outside areas from unwanted traffic and intruders.

electric gates installed in Leeds

Electric gates designed to keep intruders out and safeguard your property

Electrical gates installed in Leeds by FirstEye

Electric gates offer a range of security benefits and in the majority of cases, they are installed for security reasons. Designed to provide a robust and highly visual deterrent to car thieves, burglars and vandals, electric gates are the ideal way to ensure your home or business premises is protected around the clock.

Close your gates from the comfort of your car

Traditional wrought iron or wooden gates which have been left wide open are, unfortunately, an all too common site. The irony is that although the majority of gates are installed for security reasons, closing them involves getting out of the car which is not ideal when the weather is wet or whilst it’s dark. This is where electric gates can prove invaluable as thanks to automated closing, they can be easily closed using a remote control designed to be kept in your car.

Electric gates installed in business car parks can be easily opened and closed in a similar way using a range of entry systems, from number plate recognition through to key pad access or remote control.

The ideal solution to unwanted traffic

If your driveway or businesses’ car park is open onto a busy street or in a high-traffic area, you’ll be all to aware of the frustration caused by other drivers using your property as a turning circle, or parking on your premises. This is also easily resolved by the electric gates which can, in addition, provide an effective way to safeguard children or pets.

Electric gates designed for businesses

Whether your business is office based or in the industrial, manufacturing or commercial sectors, the installation of security gates offers a highly effective way to protect your premises. Electric gates will not only let you control who has access, but can also be used to protect your employees’ cars from thieves and prevent unauthorised parking.

Choosing the best electric gates for you

The most appropriate type of electric gate for your property or business premises will depend on a wide range of factors. Here at FirstEye we have many years of experience in installing electric gates, bollards and barriers in homes and business premises of all shapes and sizes and we’ll work closely with you to find the best solution for your budget and requirements.

security lighting installations Leeds

Spotlight on security lighting

Security lighting installed throughout Leeds by FirstEye

Although security lighting offers a cost-effective way to deter intruders and improve security, it often tends to be overlooked in comparison to CCTV and alarm systems. With this in mind, we thought we’d take the opportunity to shine a light on security lighting with an overview of how it could help you improve the security of your home or business premises:

  • Despite the fact that basic security lights are cheap to install, they punch well above their weight in terms of the security they offer. When used as a preventative measure, the sight of security lights alone is enough to put off the majority of potential intruders.
  • Security lighting, when installed in combination with a CCTV system, is the ideal way to ensure the CCTV cameras are able to provide crystal clear images during the hours of darkness.
  • One of the major advantages of security lighting is the increase in feelings of safety they provide in otherwise unlit areas. A great way to help your staff feel more secure when locking up at night, for example, or to illuminate your home’s driveway, security lighting is designed to flood dark areas with light.
  • LED security lights are incredibly cheap to run and as LED bulbs are designed to last for many years before they need replacing, offer a long-term, energy efficient solution.

Security lighting designed to meet your individual requirements

To get the very best from a security lighting system, it should ideally be installed by security specialists such as FirstEye. We have the expertise to ensure each light is positioned correctly so that the beam covers the right areas, making sure that all potential access points are adequately protected, without intruding upon neighbouring properties.

For the maximum in security protection, a combined security lighting, alarm system and CCTV is pretty hard to beat. Suitable for installation in commercial, business, industrial and residential properties, the security systems we install are designed to offer complete peace of mind and round-the-clock protection.

Which? highlights the risks of faulty electrical products

Which? Trusted Traders electrical services in Leeds

As members of Which?’s Trusted Traders scheme, we’re proud to work with the UK consumer rights organisation to help promote electrical safety and safe working practices. Once of the Which?’s current campaigns is to highlight and reform insufficiencies in the UK’s current product safety regime and with this in mind, we thought we’d highlight some of the dangers posed by faulty electrical products.

Which? are campaigning for action on dangerous electrical products and when you consider that in some of the very worst cases lives have been lost as result of fires started by faulty tumble dryers, washing machines and fridge freezers, this campaign is vital. However, whilst many electrical fires are triggered by an appliance fault, many are also caused by wiring which is no longer fit for purpose, is old or has been overloaded.

Electrical services for residential customers

Here at FirstEye we provide a range of electrical services for residential customers and whether you are about to buy a new appliance or are concerned about the wiring in your home, we’d be delighted to help. It’s important to remember that although it’s very tempting to try and install an appliance or carry out electrical repairs yourself, it really is best to leave electrical safety work to the professionals. By choosing to work with us you’ll have the reassurance of knowing that not only are we recognised as a Which? Trusted Trader, but that our team are all fully qualified and highly experienced.

The importance of electrical safety in the home should never be underestimated and if you suspect that one of your appliances may be faulty you must unplug it from the mains and contact the manufacturer as soon as possible. Caring for your appliances is a good way to help ensure that they work safely so make sure you keep your tumble dryer free from lint and make sure your fridge freezer is regularly de-frosted. Never overload electrical sockets and if you smell burning or spot scorch marks on plugs or sockets, contact a professional electrician as soon as possible.
