Leaving your property and land unoccupied means you run the risk of squatters and anti-social behaviour taking place on your premises. Providing adequate security will help to deter this and protect your property.
We’ve partnered up with VPS (UK), an expert team of specialists fully trained to design and advise on the most cost-effective solutions to reduce the exposure of your vacant property. You can also access a fast response service for ‘high risk’ sites should your property require a visit within 24 hours. They understand that each and every property is unique, and offer an extensive range of tailored security starting with:

Inspection services

    on hazards and appropriate solutions.

VPS’s advanced wireless alarm system that provides high levels of security with the least amount of disruption to your vacant property or site. By utilising innovative alarm technology, the VPS SmartAlarm can help deter break-ins and avoid costly vandalism.

The VPS SmartAlarm offers all the benefits of a 247 monitored alarm system with no requirements for electricity or a phone line. The GSM network is used for the transmission, and therefore this alarm system is especially suitable for remote locations where transmission is not possible via fixed telephone or an additional signal path is required.

Powered by a long-life battery, the VPS SmartAlarm system remains fully operational even when utilities are turned off at the property or if there is a power outage. The alarms are monitored 247 by our fully accredited monitoring station, allowing any activation to be immediately dealt with.

VPS Smar­tA­larm Gold is our most advanced alarm unit. The alarm is entire­ly stand-alone with a long-life bat­tery and on-board tam­per detec­tion, and pro­vides instant visu­al detec­tion and alert­ing on a range of inci­dents includ­ing intrud­ers, flood­ing and smoke. VPS Smar­tA­larms deter unau­tho­rised visitors :

  • Com­plete­ly wire­less, remote­ly mon­i­tored alarm system
  • Alerts on intrud­ers, fire and flooding
  • State of the art capa­bil­i­ties includ­ing cam­era enabled sensors

The com­bi­na­tion of VPS Smar­tA­larm Gold and Ver­if­eye Visu­al wire­less cam­era sen­sor pro­vides cus­tomers with the most advanced alarm solu­tion on the market.

On acti­va­tion the Ver­if­eye Visu­al will capture:

  • A full colour 20 sec­ond video clip at 5 frames per second,
  • With 6 sec­onds of this video imme­di­ate­ly relayed to our 247 mon­i­tor­ing station,
  • Fol­lowed by the remain­der of the video straight after.

The mon­i­tor­ing sta­tion will then review the footage and dis­patch the local roam­ing secu­ri­ty team to attend if required. Util­is­ing these inno­v­a­tive cam­eras will not only help elim­i­nate false trig­gers but can also assist in the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of intruders.

Secure online web portal

  • Access to real time management information, including works
    scheduled and undertaken.
  • Full audit trail of properties protected.
  • Published inspection reports and photographs.
  • Alarm activation and site access logs.
  • Squatting in a commercial property is not a criminal offence. This means it’s much harder to remove and prosecute people.*
