Door Entry Systems for Flats in Luton

If you live in a block of flats, your safety is largely dependent on the quality of the door entry system provided. In the absence of physical gatekeepers, door entry systems for flats in Luton provide the only way that residents are able to identify and control unknown visitors to the apartment block. A faulty system can lead to residents being attacked, or feeling scared to leave their flats at night. It’s important, therefore, that landlords and homeowners install high quality door entry systems that comply with SSAIB standards. The most popular models currently in use are audio (intercom) or video systems.

Trusted, Professional CCTV Installation in Bedfordshire

One of the questions Impact engineers get asked quite a bit is: “Why should I get my CCTV professionally installed when I could do it cheaper myself?” And we have to agree that DIY CCTV kits are certainly cheaper, in the short term. If, however, your CCTV installation doesn’t do the job it to you, you could end up paying a higher price in the long term.

Impact Provides a Local Alarm Receiving Centre

What happens if your intruder alarm goes off when you’re away from the property or premises? It’s one of the big decisions that home or businesses owners have to make when they’re fitting alarm systems. There’s the 2 options they can choose between:
  • Bells Only Alarm. It rings for around 20 minutes when triggered, and requires a phone call to the police for them to attend.
  • Alarm Receiving Centre. The installation is linked to a security company that will monitor the property. If the alarm is triggered they will contact emergency services.

Impact – a Bedford Electrician You Can Rely On

Someone got in touch with Impact recently, wondering if we could help. A light fixture had blown and she was worried that we wouldn’t come out for such a small job. We told her that, of course we’d come out to fix it for her, and that’s exactly what we did a few hours later. Turns out that a number of local electricians had promised to come out, then simply not bothered to turn up. Needless to say, she was delighted with the our service, and left a lovely message on Facebook:
“Dean got in touch and came from Bedford to MK to sort the issue out in a matter of hours even though it wasn't a big job. He did a great job and is a really nice and polite guy. I wouldn't use anyone else going forward and always recommend him to people.”
Natasha Needham That’s how being a local electrician works, isn’t it? At Impact we invest in every single customer because we want them to invest in us.

Impact Provides Home Electrical Maintenance in Bedford

It only takes a power cut in the home to remind us just how much we depend on electricity. Without it we’d have difficulty heating our houses, cooking meals, accessing our friends and family, or doing our work. In the 21st century, more than ever before, electricity is the juice our lives run on. And yet, ask people when they last had an electrical maintenance check in their home and the most will struggle to remember. Impact engineers always recommend regular electrical maintenance in Bedford homes. There’s two main drivers to this; first we want families to be safe from electrical hazards. Second, we want to make sure that the systems you have in place are providing your with a good return on your investment. A home we visited recently had an alarm with only half the sensors working. The household thought they were protected whilst, in fact, they weren’t.

As a local installer of CCTV cameras for businesses in Bedford, there are a number of questions Impact engineers get asked regularly. In this blog, we answer your most pressing queries.

Professional Intruder Alarm Installer in Bedford

Installing an intruder alarm is, without doubt, the most effective way to protect your property from burglary. An alarm alone, won’t do the job effectively, though. When investing in a security system for your home or business, paying a bit extra for a professional intruder alarm installer is well worth it. That way, you know your alarm is thoroughly tested and, most importantly, correctly located for optimum performance.

Local CCTV Installation in Bedford

Why install CCTV in Bedford? Well, the local crime states provide plenty of reasons. Despite the lockdown - or perhaps because of it – crime in the town and immediate surrounds is higher in 2020 than it was this time last year. The greatest problem appears to be Anti-Social Behaviour. Typical to this category of crime is trespass, graffiti, property damage, drug dealing and littering. Anti-Social Behaviour can easily escalate into opportunist crime such as burglaries and vandalism. It’s also exactly the kind of crime that local CCTV installations in Bedford successfully target. Over the last 4 months many of Bedford’s commercial properties have been closed to business. Those with CCTV cameras are far more likely to be ignored by opportunist criminals. Why? Because the risk of being caught and convicted is significantly higher where there are cameras.
