Could your garden shed be a security risk?

The garden shed wasn't locked because the owner thought there wasn't much of value in it. The burglar found an old spade inside. With the spade the burglar levered open the conservatory door and made an entrance. The door was badly damaged and need an expensive replacement - but that was nothing compared with the [...]

GuardHome Exhibiting At The Gibberd Gallery

Harlow is justly proud of its engineering heritage. It is home to Fiber Optics and this year it is celebrating 50 years of its discovery by Sir Charles Kao, at the artistic home of another of its celebrated residents, and designer of Harlow itself, Sir Frederick Gibberd.

We live in the real world – and deliver real world CCTV systems

As a lover of science fiction, I like nothing more to imagine that I could travel round the universe visiting strange new worlds, seeking out new civilisations etc etc. But I know it is only an artificial image created by clever special effects and computer graphics and will never be a reality for quite some [...]

Announcing Our New SECURE Remote Control Alarm System

We always fully check every security system before they are installed in our clients home, but when it comes to a totally new system we thoroughly evaluate it in our workshops to determine if it is good enough to be sold. If we believe that a product does not meet our exacting standards or might [...]

Are The Days Of The Dummy Deterrent Numbered?

I ask this question because unusually I have seen three of my local clients (this includes myself) targetted by thieves, since the start of this year.
