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.

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.
