When the clocks go back – protect your property with security lighting

Security lighting and installations to help you safeguard your home or business

British Summer Time ends on Saturday 28 October and the longer nights often coincide with a spike in burglary rates. The cover of darkness offers a great opportunity for thieves and with this in mind now is the ideal time to think about protecting your property with exterior lighting.

Security lighting offers effective around the clock protection

Security lighting can prove a highly effective way to deter intruders and help to prevent criminal activity outside business or industrial premises. In addition, it can also provide a useful way to get a clearer CCTV picture when it’s dark.

CCTV lighting is available in a wide range of options and thanks to LED lighting technology, is now very economical to run. We provide high output, low energy, environmentally friendly security lighting to suit all requirements and to help you increase security.

Security lighting can be used to protect the exterior of a building including open spaces such as car parks, storage areas and loading bays. It can also be used to protect the interior of a building during the hours of darkness by illuminating entrance halls and corridors, helping to ensure that your premises looks occupied even when it’s empty.

Security lighting designed to meet your individual requirements

Here at FirstEye we have the expertise to design and install effective security lighting to suit all properties and budgets. Whether you require a simple light sensor light to protect the rear of your home, or are looking for a comprehensive system to help safeguard your business premises, we can help.

fire alarms installation Leeds

Don’t underestimate the importance of a fire alarm system

The tragic fire at Grenfell Tower at London has proved to be a sad and shocking reminder of how important it is to have a working fire alarm system. Despite the fact that there are strict rules and regulations surrounding fire protection in high-rise and multi-occupancy buildings, the Grenfell Tower tragedy has demonstrated how fire can devastate a building which isn’t adequately protected.

We design and install fire alarms in Leeds

Here at FirstEye we have many years of experience in designing and installing fire alarm systems for commercial buildings and workplaces. Our specialist team understand the complex regulations surrounding fire alarm installation and we’ll work closely with you to ensure your premises are safe, secure and protected.

Fire alarm systems protect commercial buildings and workplaces by detecting minute particles of smoke. All fire alarm systems work the same principles; if a heat or smoke detector senses smoke or heat, or a break glass unit is triggered, the alarm will sound to alert the occupants of the building. Some alarms are also designed to alert the emergency services in the event of a fire.

Unique fire alarm systems designed to meet your unique requirements

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

Contact FirstEye for further information

As the Grenfell Tower disaster has so tragically shown, fire has the potential to cause devastating loss of life and damage. Rather than taking the risk of a fire, why not ensure your business is protected instead? If you’d like to find out more about our fire alarm installation services in Leeds, why not get in touch today for further information?

Having compatibility problems with iOS 11 and analogue CCTV? There’s never been a better time to move to a HD CCTV system.

HD CCTV installation information from FirstEye

The iOS 11 update for iPhone and iPad was released last week and since its launch, we’ve become aware that analogue CCTV systems won’t work on older versions of the  iOS apps we use for CCTV. If you’ve been affected by this issue please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we’ll try to help.

Whilst this issue has arisen as a result of Apple’s latest software update, it’s worth bearing in mind that despite this problem, there’s never been a better time to upgrade your CCTV from analogue to HD. Increasing numbers of business and homeowners are making the move to HD and it’s not difficult to see why as HD offers a number advantages, not least in terms of crystal-clear, crisp images.

Analogue vs HD CCTV

CCTV works best when installed alongside other security systems such as an intruder alarm and accesso control system. If you already have one of these security systems, we’ll use our expertise to install a HD CCTV system, designed to provide you with reassurance that your property is protected around the clock. The systems we install can be designed to meet the requirements of different types of properties, businesses, schools and colleges. Whether you need just one or two cameras or a large-scale complex system, we can help.
