GuardHome – Dedicated to Your Security and Safety

Darren applying the finishing touches to our latest install, all the way down in the New Forest! That’s right the New Forest in Hampshire, about a 6 hour round trip. Why you might ask? Quite simply we were asked to do so by an existing client, so that is reason enough for us! It is [...]

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. In each of these cases the thieves left empty handed because the security system that we installed was fully operational. So as soon as the burglars attempted to enter [...]

Invest In A GuardHome ISA – It Could Be Your Best Investment Ever

How Can This Happen?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-35625180  Whenever I read about events such as this, it evokes two emotions in me. The first is incredible sadness because loss of life is bad enough, but the death of children takes this to a totally new level. The second is anger, because often these events are so easily prevented by a relatively small [...]

GuardHomeSafe Is Our Watchword

We are a business, so making money is fundamental to our existence. However we are also a company that operates high moral standards and we recognise that there are times when profit is of secondary importance. Today for example we were talking to one of our clients who commissioned us to provide her CCTV surveillance [...]

The Benefits Of A Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) Camera

We sometimes recommend the use of a PTZ camera to our clients to give them some additional versatility over their static counterparts. A static camera, no matter how good, will only give you the same image all the time. If you look at the camera views below, you will see that there are 6 images. [...]

Fire Detection Systems

I read an interesting statistic published by the London Fire Service this week. They state that there are over 300 fires a year which are caused by white goods. That is a fire for almost every day of the week and this will only be the ones that they are aware of. How many more [...]
