A Guide to Access Control Installation in Bedfordshire

For hundreds of years businesses have maintained their physical security using lock and key. This traditional approach has lasted for so long because the technology was trusted. Now, however, the way businesses operate and the items they need to keep secure requires a different approach. The lock and key is no longer fit for purpose, and digital security provides the best alternative solution. Impact Electrical and Security Systems works with businesses on access control installation across Bedfordshire. In this blog we provide a guide to the process, including the benefits, types of access control and configurations available dependent on the size and complexity of your premises.

Business premises are notoriously leaky. There’s normally more than one entrance and possibly more than one building to manage. Few companies can afford to employ security staff to monitor the premises perimeter, so how can you plug those leaks and keep your staff and assets safe? Access control systems allow business owners to restrict who enters the building, which areas they can access, and when they’re permitted to be there. It’s an ingenious way to build layers of security into your building, without taking on more staff. In this blog Impact Electrical and Security Systems introduces 4 types of access control systems for Bedford businesses.

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 – 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.”
