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.

Door Entry Systems for Bedford Customers

There’s a whole variety of reasons why our Bedford customers contact us for door entry systems advice and installation. Domestic customers tend to be worried about doorstep scammers, either on their own behalf, or for a relative living on their own. Businesses are more concerned about ensuring that their premises are accessible only to authorised staff. Access control systems give either businesses or householders the ability to check the credentials of visitors before letting them in. As there’s a range of different models and systems on offer, Impact security engineers will always visit your property or premises before making a recommendation. We want to be sure that our Bedford customers have the security that meets their needs.

CCTV in Bedfordshire Drives Down Burglaries

The Impact team are always delighted to get some good news when it comes to the crime stats in Bedfordshire. The local police have just announced that burglary offences in the county are down by 35% on the figures from a year ago. Detective Inspector Janine Graham said:
“So far this year, we have jailed one offender for five years after being caught on CCTV eating ice cream before breaking into a property. Another was sent to prison for more than three years after his forensics were found at the scene. A man was handed a 15-year sentence for his part in a burglary which left two men with life threatening injuries, and one burglar was sentenced to almost three years after being caught on a doorbell video.”

She goes on to acknowledge the contribution the public make to the Bedfordshire Police success rate. Taking a responsible attitude towards crime, and installing alarms, CCTV and security lighting makes an impact – as we’re seeing from current figures.
