Here at FirstEye we understand that a new security alarm system can represent a significant investment. It can be tempting to try and reduce the cost by installing a system yourself and whilst it is possible for the average handyman to complete the job, there are significant drawbacks to this.

Wireless monitoring systems offer round the clock protection

Security specialists in Leeds

The technology behind security systems has been transformed over the last ten years and thanks to massive developments, there are many systems now available which provide highly effective protection against theft and intruders.

Nowadays a range of security systems are available which do so much more than offer protection and can be used to automate and control a wide range of domestic tasks, including switching appliances on and off, or controlling central heating.

Safeguarding homes and businesses against fire

Wireless monitoring can offer huge advantages in terms of peace of mind and enhanced security. A wireless monitoring system will contact you via your mobile phone if your home or business is broken into, or can be used to protect the outside of a property with remotely operated CCTV cameras.

Whilst using this type of security system offers unbeatable peace of mind, wireless monitoring is proving particularly useful for people who own second properties or homes abroad. Wireless monitoring makes it possible to ensure that everything is as it should be, even allowing for the heating to be turned on in advance of your arrival!

Another area in which wireless monitoring offers reassurance is in fire protection and some systems are designed to detect a fire and activate a fire alarm system.

How to ensure your home is safe, secure and protected

Security installations in Leeds

Your home should be a safe sanctuary away from the world but if your home is unprotected from intruders and theft, it can be hard to relax and unwind.

Ensuring your home is adequately protected is essential, not just when you go out to work or on holiday, but to also ensure that you are fully covered at all times by your home insurance policy.  With this in mind, it can be well worth considering the installation of home security system, designed specifically to safeguard your property.

A variety of home security systems are available; ranging from the highly complex through to simple systems to protect the main entry points.  When considering the installation of a home security system, the best place to start is by contacting an experienced and reputable local security contractor.  The process should begin with a consultation and assessment of your property; this is essential as it is the best and only way to find the most suitable security system to meet the needs of your family and lifestyle.  Don’t be fobbed off by security companies who try to carry out an assessment over the phone as it is vital that is carried out in your home.

Which type of security system is best for your home and lifestyle?

So which type of system is best for you?  Well this is largely down to a number of factors.  First and foremost is the size of your home.  A large, detached property surrounded by gardens will need a far more complex system in comparison to a small terraced house with just a couple of rooms on each floor.

The second issue which needs to be taken into consideration is the layout of your home.  In general, modern properties which tend to include open-plan spaces need security systems which can be tailor made to suit the interior, whilst houses with large, ground-floor windows will need additional protection to cover this.

The third is your budget.  The costs between different systems can vary wildly and if you’re on a tight budget, it’s worth bearing in mind that even simple home security measures can prove to be effective deterrents against intruders.

The fourth and final issue is what you would prefer to happen when your alarm sounds.  A bell-only alarm will just make a noise when activated but more complex alarm systems (known as monitored alarms) are designed to contact either the police or a designated contact.

Studies carried out by the Metropolitan Police Office have shown that having a well-maintained and well-fitted burglar alarm makes a home less likely to be burgled.  If you are considering either installing an alarm system or upgrading your alarm system, contacting a reputable local installer should be the first step you take.  When installed correctly an alarm system not only provides an effective it is also an unbeatable way to give the peace of mind that your home and family are protected.

Protect your home or business with LED security flood lights

Powerful lighting designed to protect your property

Flood lights, as the name suggest, are designed to flood large areas with a very bright from of light. Flood lights are one of the most powerful types of lighting available and as such they offer a highly effective way to help protect the outside areas of a building, whether it is a domestic, commercial or industrial property.

Flood lights have long been used in a wide range of locations including sports venues, outdoor theatres and school playgrounds. In addition, the emergency services also make use of the powerful beam offered by floodlights when searching large areas from a distance or height, such as police helicopters.

The powerful bright light emitted by floodlights makes them ideal for use as a security measure, particularly when it comes to deterring potential intruders. However, LED security lighting can be used in a number of different ways and it is possible to install lighting which has to be manually operated, or sensor-triggered systems which are designed to detect movement.

LED lighting technology has been transformed over recent years and this form of lighting is very cheap to run thanks to the small amount of energy used. LED light bulbs also last much longer than other types of bulbs and because they are incredibly durable, are ideal for use in outdoor locations.

Is your business protected from the risk of theft?

Security advice for business owners in Leeds

Burglary is the most common form of crime against businesses and in comparison to domestic properties, higher numbers of business premises fall victim to re-burglary. With this in mind, we thought we’d highlight the importance of security for business premises.

Improving on-site security and minimising the risk of a burglary are the most important measures business owners need to take. Not only does theft, burglary or related crimes have the potential to seriously disrupt your business operations, crime can also have a serious impact upon trade.

Businesses are more susceptible to theft

Business premises are targeted by burglars as opposed to domestic properties for a number of reasons. First and foremost, the assets which can be stolen are likely to be of a much higher value in commercial premises. Nowadays all businesses use some form of computer systems and software, ranging from printers, desktop computers, laptops and tablets, through to digital cameras, smartphones and photocopiers. Secondly, business premises are often unoccupied overnight, during weekends and in public holiday periods, leaving them susceptible to burglary and related crimes.

The design of commercial and industrial buildings also puts them more at risk. Despite the fact that intruders tend to break in to buildings through windows and doors, they also often exploit skylight windows, flat roofs, access ladders, fire escapes, roof spaces or even through single skin walls. These are all possible access points for thieves and serious consideration must be given to these areas when putting security measures in place.

Many businesses now use metal shutters, rolling doors and security grilles to help protect their premises but it also essential to ensure that these measures are complimented with a reliable alarm system, security lighting and CCTV. Remember that not only do alarms, security lighting and CCTV help to make a property much more difficult to break in to, they will also provide a highly effective deterrent, ensuring your premises is less likely to be targeted.

Contact FirstEye for advice on securing your business

Here at FirstEye we work with businesses and organisations of all sizes to help them ensure that their premises are secure and protected against the risk of crime.

Vehicle Barrier Installation in Leeds

An open and shut case: security gates will help to protect your business premises

Security gates and barriers installed in Leeds

Whilst there’s no doubt that security gates provide a highly effective way to control which vehicles have access to your business premises, it’s very important that you select the most suitable for your location.

Security gates and automatic barriers are a common feature of secure car parks and facilities. Automatic gates are ideal for locations where vehicles are enter and exit a secure area, whilst electronic security gates control access on a vehicle by vehicle basis.

The majority of gates are installed at the entrance to a car park or facility, in a wide range of locations including office car parks, loading bays or storage areas. Security gates can also be used within a wider setting, such as to separate staff parking bays within a public car park. Thanks to the versatility of security gates and barriers, they provide a cost-effective way to protect certain areas.

Which security gate?

A wide range of different types of basic security gate are available, with the majority made from robust metal. Barrier arm gates are widely used in car parks but because pedestrians are able to pass under the gate, offer virtually no protection against pedestrian access. Swing gates – gates which are designed to swing open like a normal gate or door – are widely used in residential properties but can also provide effective protection for business premises. If space is limited folding gates can provide an ideal solution but although they do open and close quickly, additional safety measures are required to prevent the risk of people becoming trapped.

Automatic gates can be controlled in a wide range of ways, from vehicle tag readers, digital keypads or card readers, through to digital transmitters, intercom systems or video camera systems. Choosing the best entry system can be complex and we’re happy to provide further advice on this.

Futuristic technology helps homeowners protect their property and save money on household bills

Home automation systems installed in Leeds by FirstEye

Easy to install and ideal for houses and flats of all sizes, home automation systems have moved from being expensive and futuristic to affordable and commonplace.

At FirstEye we are electrical installation specialists with expertise in designing and installing home automation systems. If you’ve never heard of home automation or aren’t sure about what it can do, we thought we’d provide you with an insight.

In a nutshell home automation systems are designed to provide automatic control over things such as the lighting, heating and security of your home. Wherever you are in the world, you’ll be able to switch on the lights or programme the dishwasher, simply by using a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Whereas once wireless home automation was the stuff of science fiction, it is now a simple, affordable way to do all this and more.

The benefits of home automation

One of the most significant benefits of home automation is the convenience it can offer. We all lead busy lives and the chances are you’ve had times when you’re delayed at work, only to remember that you need to be at home to let the kids in. Home automation makes it possible to remotely deactivate the intruder alarm, turn on the heating or switch on the lights.

The convenience of home automation can also help to save you money by reducing and monitoring the amount of power you use. You could, for example control your central heating so that it switches on just as you leave work, or if you for get to turn the lights off, you could switch them off remotely. In addition, appliances can be programmed to run when most convenient for you, or at times of the day when electricity is cheaper.

Another significant benefit of home automation is in terms of home security. Lights can be turned on and off whilst you’re away, helping to make your home look occupied, whilst it’s also possible to remotely activate or deactivate a security alarm. Some automation systems can be designed to interact with a CCTV system, allowing you to check on your home from wherever you are in the world.
