In this article, Impact offers a step-by-step guide to creating efficient and affordable security systems for your Bedford home or business.
A Commercial Security System in 5 Steps
Security systems are all about prevention, so there are two things that you need to think about prior to creating your security system:
- What would criminals want to steal?
- Where are the vulnerabilities in my premises?
Step 1. Security Vulnerability Assessment
The Impact team will audit your premises, and the security systems you currently have in place. We’ll determine where the major vulnerabilities lie and make recommendations based on this.
Step 2. Controlling Access to Your Premises
If your premises are large, or have a number of different entry points, you may wish to install an access control system. This allows you to control who can enter, and which parts of the building they have access to. You can also monitor the number of people on the premises at any given time and ensure that visitors leave when you expect them to.
Step 3. CCTV for Prevention
If you have a yard or car park as part of your premises, these areas create cover for potential intruders – especially in the winter when it’s dark in the morning and in the late afternoon. Carefully positioned CCTV security systems demonstrate to intruders that you take security seriously, and actively control the perimeters. Often the sight of a CCTV camera is enough to deter criminals from attempting entry.
Step 4. Intruder Alarm for Immediate Response
If intruders do decide to target your business, you want to be sure that not only will a commercial alarm system make a loud noise, but that it will also prompt action from the police. Impact has a monitoring station which is manned 24/7. Once alarm activation is received, the team identify the cause of activation and contact the relevant emergency services.
Step 5. Install a Coherent Security System
The Impact team provides a professional security system design, installation, and ongoing maintenance package. We tailor our solutions to each client’s specific needs and ensure that the system we provide closes up the any vulnerabilities that we find.
Residential Security Systems Bedford
It’s now possible to build a bespoke security system for your home. It combines cameras, motion detectors, sensors, locks, and sirens. The many different components that make up smart security systems speak to each other via a hub, which is then connected to an app on your phone.
Once installed, your security system is working in the background, monitoring your home 24/7. You can keep an eye on the comings and goings of children, or elderly relatives. If there is a vulnerable person in the house, you can set up an alert to let you know if they’re leaving unexpectedly. You can schedule lights to turn on and off if you’re away and you can always check in via your mobile.
If intruders should enter your home, they will be picked up by camera, and the alarm will be triggered by motion sensors. Impact can provide a monitoring station which is manned 24/7 and the police will be called if someone breaks into your home.
