CCTV is becoming more and more evident in our homes, offices and public places.
Southern Alarm Services' CCTV systems have many uses. Acting firstly as a deterrent, it also provides continuous monitoring and can be remotely viewed from computers, tablets and mobile phones.
With experience installing both analogue and IP systems, SAS can tailor a CCTV system to your budget and requirements. With crystal clear images and continuous recording on your DVR/NVR, the recorded images can be used as evidence if required.
CCTV offers a very strong deterrent to the threat of theft as well as anti-social behaviour. CCTV cameras were predominately used to deter and prove a crime had been committed but in today's world these systems are also used to prove professional conduct from businesses and staff, to protect them against false insurance claims.
CCTV also can play an important role in the implementation of health and safety.
CCTV for home or business work as a deterrent for burglars, as well as providing much needed evidence when necessary.

Access Control has become a valuable asset to businesses as it provides them greater control to parts of the building/business and helps to protect their belongings and any sensitive information (personal or otherwise) that may be on desks/computers etc.

In care homes Access Control is commonly used to protect residents from hazards (flights of stairs) as well as stopping people entering/leaving the building without the staff's knowledge.
Southern Alarm Services' door intercom systems also compliment our Access Control by giving the end user the ability to unlock a door from a more convenient location, the systems can provide audio and/or visual verification.

Emergency lighting is provided to illuminate areas in the event of a sudden power failure, predominantly to illuminate escape routes to provide a safe passage to exit the building.

Emergency lighting operates automatically, giving efficient lighting and signage to indicate a safe escape route.
Two of the most common options used:
At SAS we use the Texecom Smart Com.
This communicator provides notifications to be sent to your smart phone via the Texecom App.
The notifications give a specific description of what event is occuring and where. You can set and unset the system via the app and can also interrogate the system from it, logs etc. The Smart Com also has Home Automation parts available, enabling you to turn on specific circuits (lights etc.) in your house from your phone.

CS 24hr Monitoring
With this option your system/s are connected to a dedicated Alarm Receiving centre which is manned 24hrs, 365 days a year. On receipt of an alarm signal from one of your systems the operator will respond immediately contacting the Fire Service or the contacts on your pre-determined list of key holders.
The Dualcom communicators are able to operate over a number of paths to ensure the signal reaches Southern Alarm Services' central station, they do not rely on a phone line or any other single signal path, making them extremely reliable. The central station also monitors these communications paths to make sure the system has not been compromised.
We can provide a supported, monitored 4G router solution for remote properties and businesses that don’t have a broadband connection. This enables our customers to access their alarm systems and CCTV cameras from anywhere using smartphones, tablets, and PCs.
Monitored systems are connected to an Alarm Receiving Centre via standard telephone line or mobile network, where dedicated staff will contact the right authority in the event of an receiving an alert.
