  • Installing movement detectors and personal triggers such as the Canary Monitoring System
  • Installing life-saving smoke and flood detectors to alert you in an emergency

Our Commitment to You

Our service continues beyond installation by providing regular maintenance checks. We also review your equipment from time to time, to make sure it continues to provide the most effective solution for you. If your requirements change in the future, we will discuss how we can best alter our support.

To view our range of equipment and identify what and where products can be used visit our Virtual House and purchase directly from our Online Shop.
