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.

  • Is your business open to the general public? Shops and office premises with busy reception areas often benefit from the installation of a CCTV system. CCTV not only offers a highly effective deterrent against theft, it can also prove incredibly useful in the event of a police investigation or insurance claim.
  • Is valuable stock or sensitive information stored in your business premises? If this is the case, installing an access control system will help you monitor and control who has access to particular areas of your premises.
  • Are you working from home? Don’t forget that IT equipment is expensive to replace so make sure your home is adequately protected with a reliable home security system.

These are just some things to think about and if you need further advice or guidance, we’d be delighted to help. Contacting FirstEye is easy: simply call 0113 228 8599 or email quote@firsteye.co.uk

security systems for sheds and garages

Is your shed or garage secured against theft?

Domestic security installations in Leeds

As a result of the unusual summer we’ve had, many people have had the chance to get more exercise than before. Sales of bikes have rocketed as increasing number of people discover or re-discover the joys of getting about on two wheels. In addition, over the summer months we tend to use our shed and outbuildings a lot more than in the summer. Whether you’re in and out of the shed with gardening equipment or use it to store bikes and sports equipment, it can be all to easy to leave it unsecured and vulnerable to a break in.

Shed security is something which is often overlooked by homeowners but as crime reports show, shed and garage burglaries are becoming commonplace. Unfortunately, sheds and garages are often targeted by thieves as they know they’re used to store valuable items such as power tools and sports equipment. There it’s important to ensure your shed and garage have sufficient protection. Here are some simple steps you can take:

• Burglars are far more likely to choose sheds which are poorly protected. It’s worth installing additional security measures such as coach bolts or and clutch screws which are designed to make it difficult to remove the door. A shed bar across the door will also provide highly effective protection.
• A shed or garage window offers a potential access point. To make glazing more secure it’s a good idea to protect the inside of the glass with a laminate coating, whilst beading should be secured using clutch screws or a silicone adhesive.
• If you use your shed or garage to store bikes or other high value equipment, there are a range of products available designed to secure items to either the shed/garage frame or floor.
• Shed and garage alarms are designed to offer highly effective protection and a very visible deterrent, whilst also providing peace of mind. Here at FirstEye we have the expertise to install alarms in sheds and garages, with a range of options available to suit all budgets.

Moving house? Let us provide you with the home security solutions you need

Home security solutions installed in Leeds by FirstEye

As life seems to have been put on hold since the start of the pandemic, many people are now making plans to move house. If you’re thinking about moving and are busy looking around potential properties, don’t forget to put security at the top of your list. Moving house is a very busy time and it’s easy to get distracted, but by thinking about home security now, you could save yourself a great deal of stress and expense.

Here are a few things you to consider when deciding whether a potential property is safe and secure, including:

• Ask people living in the area what it’s like to live there – local knowledge is very useful!
• What’s the area like at night? Thinks can feel very different when it’s dark and if you feel uncomfortable, it might be a good idea to look elsewhere.
• Does the property have a security system and how old/reliable is the system?
• Is there security lighting?
• If the property has a burglar alarm, make the sure you get the code and manual from the previous owners. Alarm maintenance is important and if the system hasn’t been serviced for a while, arrange for a service appointment as soon as possible.
• If there isn’t an alarm system, arrange to have one installed as soon possible. Unfortunately we meet lots of homeowners who want to have an alarm installed because they’ve just been burgled but prevention is much better than cure.
• Organise home insurance cover as soon as possible and make sure you have the correct level of cover.
• Check garages, sheds and outbuildings – if you’re going to store valuables (bikes, sports equipment, power tools etc.), consider having an alarm installed.
• Security lighting is a cost-effective, quick-fix approach to home security. Consider installing outside lights if there aren’t any.

Fire Alarm Systems Installation Leeds

Don’t underestimate the importance of a fire alarm system

Although there are strict rules and regulations surrounding fire protection in high-rise and multi-occupancy buildings, tragedies such as Grenfell Tower have demonstrated how fire can cause catastrophic results in a building which isn’t adequately protected.

We design and install fire alarms in Leeds

Here at FirstEye we have more than 22 years of experience in designing and installing fire alarm systems for commercial buildings and workplaces. Our fully trained team understands the complicated regulations which surround fire alarm installation in multi-occupancy buildings and we’ll work closely with you to ensure your premises are safe, secure and protected.

Fire alarm systems are designed to protect commercial buildings and workplaces by detecting invisible particles of smoke. All fire alarm systems work along the same lines: if a heat or smoke detector senses smoke or heat, or an emergency ‘break glass unit’ is activated, the alarm will sound to alert those in the building. In addition, some alarms are also designed to alert the emergency services in the event of a fire.

Bespoke fire alarm systems designed to meet your unique requirements

Each fire alarm we install is designed to meet the unique requirements of the client. We also provide a clearly designed commissioning certificate, an installation certificate, with a fire alarm plan, user guide and a weekly test log book. If required, we can also provide a service and maintenance agreement.
