At Security Group we can offer security solutions for both commercial and residential properties. Our intruder alarm systems offer handy features to make managing your alarms simpler, including via smart phone apps so you can set your alarms anywhere as long as you have an internet connection.
We have many long-standing customers across the south-west of England who have our intruder alarm systems in their homes and who can now take advantage of the more advanced systems we can now offer.
One of our well-established customers, with an ongoing maintenance and support contract, is Mrs B. from Hinton Blewett near Bristol. After a number of break-ins in her neighbourhood she decided last year to upgrade to a more modern and comprehensive system.
After visiting Mrs B. and deciding on her latest requirements we designed and installed a Grade 2 HKC hybrid intruder alarm system with its Securecomm Cloud Solution offering her peace of mind. The intruder alarm system and installation meet the BS EN50131 intruder alarm standard.
The hybrid system uses wired and wireless technology which connects to both wired and wireless sensors. As well as designing and installing the HKC intruder alarm system, we provided Mrs B. with training on it and on the HKC app. This app which allows her to have easy remote control of the alarm.
Mrs B’s system includes wired detectors in parts of the house and wireless detectors to other areas, including the garage. To improve the wireless range a RF Range extender was also installed. Additionally, a HKC alarm control panel was installed and two keypads have been fitted in the hall and in the kitchen.
Mrs B said the installation was very straightforward and no hassle.
She added, “Security Group fitted my first alarm almost 30 years ago after I had been burgled five times at a previous property. My system was updated and extended in 2021 as I wanted to take further precautions because of a number of burglaries in an adjacent village where a lot of garages, sheds and cars had been broken into.
” I would recommend Security Group to everyone and did so recently to a friend in the village who was thinking of getting their old alarm updated.”
The upgraded system allows Mrs B. to exit and access by both her front door and back door with each having a keypad. Having back door access enables her and her muddy dog to go straight into the kitchen. She is also able to remotely set the alarm in her garage overnight with the HKC app on her mobile phone.
“The new system gives me great comfort especially as the house across the road and the house next door were both burgled overnight in early February. I think no one is safe from break-ins these days and so a house alarm is absolutely essential” Mrs B. said.
