Effective Security Measures to Protect Your Home or Business

Effective Security Measures to Protect Your Home or Business


The security of your home or business should be at the forefront of your mind if you want to keep your home or business safe and secure from criminals.

In order to keep your home or business safe the list below will showcase a few effective ways to deter criminals from targeting your home or business premises.

Security lighting

Burglaries tend to happen at the dead of night, under the cover of darkness as this lowers the risk of criminals being caught due to not being easily seen.

However, this can be easily resolved by installing motion detection security lights that are activated when they detect movement in the targeted areas around your home or business premises.

Security lighting is effective because it deters burglars due to the lights illuminating any shadowed areas.

CCTV surveillance cameras

If there is one security solution that criminals will avoid at all costs, it’s an active CCTV camera as this can expose their identity and be used in a court of law as evidence agaisn’t the criminal.

CCTV is effective because it can record every movement both inside and outside of a property 24/7 with many surveillance cameras being capable of recording in the dark due to their night vision capabilities.

The visibility of a high quality CCTV camera is usually enough to deter most criminals  and therefore being an effective security measure that should be considered if you want to keep your home or business safe and secure from criminals.

Intruder Alarms

Intruder alarms are one of the most common forms of protection for home and business owners alike.

Intruder alarms typically have a bell box visible on the property, the sight of an intruder alarm is usually enough to have a criminal think twice before targeting your home or business.

Burglar alarms tend to be effective because when triggered they let off a loud noise alerting everyone in the surrounding area and drawing attention to the property until the alarm is disarmed by the key holder.

If an intruder alarm is triggered it can alert the property owner by app on their phone or alert the local police station who will dispatch police officers to the property.

In addition to a burglar alarm you can add further protection and reassurance by adding smoke and CO2 detection onto the system. This can be coupled with fire service response or can be self monitored from your smart device.

Wi-Fi / app enabled Doorbells & Intercoms

Wi-Fi doorbells and Intercoms systems such as ring and Comelit have revolutionised the market by offering a cost efficient way to always keep in touch with who is approaching your home or business.

With a clever app control system you can speak and see who is at the door from anywhere in the world and also receive up to date motion alerts as and when someone approaches your property.

Integrate these systems with door locks and controllable lights and this can result in a very effective deterrent.


Safes are a very cheap, yet very effective security solution. Depending on the price you can have many different styles of safes available from simple DIY safes to sure grade safes and great rated safes.

Safes are not so much a deterrent but a physical security solution that can give you a place to securely store prized items and documents while giving you peace of mind knowing they are protected.

Automatic Gates

If you’re lucky to have gates on your home, we would suggest you upgrade to automated gates. Adding automation to gates can remarkably increase the overall security of your home or business whilst adding more value to your property.

Automatic gates allow you to restrict access to your property and with a system such as our Audio & Video Intercoms can be a valuable tool when it comes to your site security.

Manned Security

Business owners with a large premises or a 24/7 facility could also benefit greatly from manned security on site.

Having security guards can give you additional eyes and ears on the ground and have the ability to respond to suspicious activity on your business premises quickly.

Having visible security guards on site will stop criminals targeting your business and provide additional safety to staff.
