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.

It isn’t just our clients that we protect with our systems. This morning at around 4am my house alarm went off. It was because this chap and his mate attempted to break into my van.

In recent months there have been thieves who specialise in stealing power tools from vans parked outside of the owners homes. They drive around at the dead of night selecting vehicles to target.

A Clean Bell Box! This might seem a small insignificant point, but if you think about it, it is incredibly important! This is what Attention To Detail (ATD) is all about!

GuardHome bellbox

This week is very exciting for us at GuardHome as it sees work starting on our new offices. After almost ten years  of running my business from a very cosy room in my home, I have decided we are sufficiently mature  to have our own offices. Some of the local residents may already have seen [...]
