CCTV provides a highly effective deterrent to potential intruders and will also offer you with protection when you’re not there.

Let CCTV be your eyes when you can’t be there

Installing CCTV offers a number of benefits in terms of business and residential security. Providing a highly effective deterrent – the sight of CCTV cameras is usually sufficient to deter even the most determined of thieves – CCTV cameras also ensure you can keep an eye on your property when you’re not there.

At FirstEye we have many years of experience in installing commercial and residential CCTV systems in Leeds and throughout West Yorkshire. Here are just some of the ways CCTV could help you protect your business premises or home:

  • Deterrent: when faced with a choice, a burglar will always target the home or business which isn’t protected by CCTV. For commercial businesses, it’s also worth bearing in mind that CCTV will help to put off shoplifters or even dishonest members of staff.

  • Insurance: losing expensive stock or personal items to a break-in is incredibly disheartening and expensive. CCTV enables you to review footage, work out what’s been going on and provide the police with valuable evidence.

  • Safety: your safety and the safety of your staff or loved ones is very important and installing CCTV is a great way to provide reassurance and an extra level of protection.

  • Monitoring: Last and by no means least, CCTV will enable you to keep an eye on your home or business when you’re not there; providing you with reassurance and peace of mind that everything is as it should be.

security systems for sheds and garages

Our advice on shed and garage security

Over last year’s lock downs many people were encouraged to take up cycling, buying bikes so that they could get out and about enjoy their local area. The vast majority of people store bikes either in a shed or garage but fail to secure these in the same way that they do their homes. Sheds and garages are often only protected by an inadequate lock or padlock. As a result, burglars consider sheds and garages as a weak spot and will target them first as they see them as a quick win.

It’s not only bikes that are stolen from sheds and garages, with garden and power tools, lawnmowers, sports equipment such as golf clubs also being vulnerable to theft. With this in mind, shed and garage security is just as important as home security and here’s our advice on how to protect yours:

  • Make sure sheds are as solid as possible: if yours has any damaged or rotten sections, these should be replaced.
  • If you’re buying a new shed, consider placing it so that it’s visible to the house and not located next to a perimeter wall or fence.
  • Bikes should be chained to a two bolt locking point which is anchored to the floor, whilst valuable items are ideally kept in a strong box with a lock or a cage.
  • It’s well worth considering incorporating your garage or shed into your existing home security system.
  • Outside areas should be illuminated using dusk until dawn or motion sensor lighting.

How to choose the best pet-friendly security system for your home

It goes without saying that home security is important for all homeowners. However, if you have a dog or cat, your security system could easily be triggered when your four legged friend movies around the house. As a result, some homeowners decide not to have a security system at all, putting them at increased risk of a break-in.

The good news is, thanks to improvements in the security alarms available, having a pet no longer means you have to compromise on home security. With this in mind, here’s our advice on ensure your home is secure and pet-friendly.

Domestic alarms installed in Leeds by FirstEye

Installing a burglar alarm is an effective, budget-friendly way to safeguard your home against theft. Burglar alarms help to deter thieves and statistics show that approximately 60% of the burglaries attempted on homes with alarms fail. Despite this, many pet owners choose not to install an alarm because they’re concerned that their pet could trigger it.

However, there are steps which can be taken to stop lively pets from accidentally setting off a burglar alarm. Many security alarm packages include a pet-friendly motion sensor; designed to use a range of technologies to assess the movement pattern, speed and temperature of whatever has triggered it, therefore ruling out pets. This means that the alarm can be set and you’ll have the reassurance that your pets can safely move around the house.

In addition, careful positioning of alarm sensors can also make a huge difference. If your dog spends the majority of the day in the living room, for example, but has a habit of jumping on the sofa, make sure that any sensors are directed away from this particular area. Also, don’t forget to ensure that sensors are placed as high as possible on the walls; at least five foot high is ideal.
