Add security systems to your home

  • Did you know that adding a security system like CCTV cameras, smart locks, antibacterial and traditional locks to your house may reduce the costs of your insurance? We can provide you with 3 star cylinder anti-pick and anti-drill locks. These will provide extra protection for your home and as a result are insurance rated.
  • Adding CCTV cameras will allow you to keep an eye on your house when your away and alert you if anyone does try and enter your home. Having a visible alarm may put an intruder off entering your home. All of our SMART locks and CCTV cameras can all be used and accessed at the click of a button. This allows you to remotely arm your system and turn off false alarms from your smart device.

Don’t share any holiday plans on social media

Join your local Neighbourhood watch page
