Grounds & Perimeter Security Basingstoke
Good all round security stems from a multi-faceted or layered approach combining where possible various levels of security equipment and devices.
Whilst its generally accepted that the intruder alarm is the mainstay of security for most users, other measures are sometimes required to complement or enhance the intruder alarm or indeed replace it with a different type of system.
The most likely of these will be CCTV and/or security lighting which act as a first line of defence to an intruder. If the intruder continues regardless of these external devices, then the alarm will be ready and waiting.
However there will be times when an intruder alarm cannot be used, either for practical reasons or because the area to protect is not the building itself but the grounds or gardens of a property. This may be the residential gardens of your home or a compound or yard of a business premises such as a car sales forecourt or storage yard of a warehouse.
Having the flexibility to extend your lines of security into the external reaches of your property provides both you and the intruder with an early warning.
Why do I need grounds security?
Some intruders or burglars will target the house, office, warehouse or industrial building with the intent of stealing from within the building, others will be more than content to relieve you of your possessions or cause damage to outside property or more increasingly so, from outbuildings such as sheds and workshops.
These are frequently overlooked as thought not to be “high risk”, sadly though, others see this differently.
Protect your exterior areas from theft
Losses include garden tools such as chainsaws, hedge trimmers, mowers (especially sit on types) and hand tools, sports equipment such as push bikes, motorcycles and golf equipment and an unlimited array of contents with commercial properties.
When taken into consideration, these items can sometimes be more valuable that the main protected buildings contents!
External Wired & Wireless Detection Systems
During the Covid19 lockdown, we have seen a noticeable jump in the number of rural properties targeted, almost all suffering significant losses from garden sheds, workshops and garages. As such we have extended our range of external security to include a larger range of products. Whilst we have always been able to fit CCTV, Security Lighting and wireless internal detectors for alarms plus a small number of external beam detection devices, many manufacturers have now extended their product lines to offer a huge array of both wired and wireless detection systems.
These include external wired, wireless and hybrid wireless active infra red beams, laser beams and long range passive infra red detectors from market leaders Optex, GJD and Texecom Ricochet.
Full range of grounds security detectors available
We have close proximity beam detectors and passive infra red “curtain” detectors which are placed on a building but rather that aim out into the grounds, cover the wall, doors and windows at very close range providing a barriers. This is ideal where there are animals or plants which might otherwise cause false activations. Although false triggers are always a possibility with external detection, this new range of sensors reduce this significantly by enhanced filtering and being placed to cover the outside perimeter of a building.
Activation of the detectors can be integrated into security lighting, voice annunciators to give a verbal warning and/or the majority of our more recent intruder alarms such as the Texecom Elite panels. Indeed some devices interface directly with the renowned Ricochet wireless system and coupled with the Smart Connect module and Smart device (phone/tablet etc) can alert you directly to you device.
