CCTV isn’t just for catching intruders – it can help protect your pets too

CCTV systems installed in Leeds by FirstEye

Increasing numbers of homeowners are installing CCTV as a highly effective way to protect their property from crime. However, did you know that CCTV also offers a great way to check on your property when you’re away from home and is ideal for keeping an eye on pets, for example?

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and the fact that many people are now working from home, there has been a sharp increase in the number of dog owners. Unfortunately, this rise in pet ownership has led to a significant rise in the theft of dogs from domestic properties. Obviously, we can’t be at home to keep an eye on our pets 24/7 and this is where CCTV can prove incredibly useful.

CCTV has become increasingly popular with homeowners over recent years. Offering an incredibly effective way to safeguard against crime, CCTV is widely recognised as a great way to deter thieves from attempting to enter your property. The sight of CCTV is often enough to deter even the most determined the thieves, as the cameras indicate that you take the security of your home very seriously.

For the very best coverage and to provide your pets with maximum protection, installing cameras both inside and outside your home is likely to be the best option. Here at FirstEye we have many years of experience in installing CCTV in all properties of all sizes, and our team can advise you on the best way to give your home (and pets) the best possible protection.

We have systems to suit all budgets and requirements: from HD TVI CCTV which is the ideal option for homeowners who want good coverage at an affordable price. Alternatively, HD IP CCTV is perfect for tech-savvy homeowners who’d like a future proof system.

Control who has access to your business premises with an access control system

Access control systems installed in Leeds by FirstEye

Retail premises are, at long last, finally able to re-open after months of closure. If you run a retail premises, the chances are that you’re hoping for a busy couple of months to make up for such a long period of inactivity! However, the last thing you want to worry about is losing valuable stock to theft. This is where an access control system can prove extremely useful by providing a barrier between your business and opportunistic theft or malicious damage.

What is access control?

A wide range of access control systems are available: from single door or gate locks, through to multiple user systems. Access control systems are designed to provide flexible security by enabling you to control who access to your building, or particular areas of your building, at any time. Most access control systems consist of a simple control panel located next to a door. Access is given either by entering a key code, using a key fob or access card. This means that if an access card or key is lost or stolen it can simply be erased from the system, putting an end to expensive lock replacements. In addition, because individual users can be assigned individual access, you’ll be able to control who has access to different areas, giving you complete, flexible control over security.

Access control is ideal for a wide range of settings: from small retail premises and stock rooms, through to factories, commercial building, warehouses and offices. In addition, schools, nurseries and care homes are making increasing use of access control as a simple yet highly effective way to protect children or the people in their care.

At FirstEye we have a team of fully trained and experienced engineers who are specialists in the installation of Paxton Access Control Systems. One of the most trusted brands in access control, Paxton systems offer superb reliability and excellent value for money.
