Security Installation Tag

The Impact Electrical and Security Services team were called out recently by a landlord whose tenants were having problems with a shower that kept tripping. This meant they had to keep resetting – always a sign there’s a problem. Once we took a look we found a horrible mess of cables, worn and pretty dangerous to be honest. The landlord booked in a fuse board change straight away, and a full Electrical Inspection Condition Report (EICR). Ensuring that the electrics in a rental property are safe for tenants to use is now a legal requirement. Failure to have an Electrical Safety Certificate proving that this is the case, can land you with a hefty fine or even a prison sentence. In our experience, most landlords want to comply with the EICR regulation, but often they’re not sure what they need to do. Impact carries out electrical safety checks for landlords in Bedfordshire, so we’re describing what’s required in this blog.

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.

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.
