Quality, integrity and the highest standards of service

A privately-owned business providing high quality security services to private individuals and businesses throughout the South West.

Who we are 

Security Group is a privately-owned company, based in Bristol and working across south-west England. We specialise in intruder alarm and fire alarm systems and are registered with the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB). The business was originally set up by Mike Thomas in 1996 and was family-owned until June 2020 when it was bought by Ecl-ips, a Worcestershire-based company specialising in CCTV, access control and real-time monitoring. Ecl-ips has the same ethos as Security Group, focusing on high-quality products and services delivered by highly-qualified and experienced engineers. Security Group customers will continue to enjoy the high level of service they have received for over 20 years.
