Monitored CCTV Reduces Crime – the deterrent effect

Monitored CCTV Reduces Crime – the deterrent effect

This testimonial for Monitored CCTV System has just come in. We have several client with complex requirements and work with them to find a solution. This is a large trading estate with multiple users, so it was not straightforward. We have worked with the landlord and tenants to tailor a solution that works for them. We continue to work with this client to refine and reappraise the CCTV on this site with changing needs.
It is always good to hear of incidents being thwarted, but it’s much harder to quantify the deterrent effect.

“…Since you kindly installed the system at my industrial property we seem to have had a marked drop-off in ‘incidents’ which I can only thank ESI for in as much as you have been responsible! Obviously these things could be coincidental but there is no question that we have had much less crime since installing the system!…”

Could we help to improve your safety and security too?

Excellent SSAIB Audit Visit

Excellent SSAIB Audit Visit

Last Friday was inspection day for Intruder Alarms, CCTV and Access Control Systems.

This was the first time that our new inspector had looked at these disciplines with us. He was really impressed. The directors have always held the view that external audits are vital to ensure the quality of our work. It was very pleasing to read his conclusion:

This was another successful surveillance visit that consisted of an office and site based audit where 2 sites were visited during the day and all three scopes inspected. The office audit was very good where documentation and reports presented were first class, all reports contained the correct information and were up to date, Documentation for the sites visited was very professional and the files contained all the relevant certificates and technical details required. The Installations were also carried out to a very high standard and the company produces a quality end product. Well done to Rob, Carol and Nick for achieving this,

Today was our 6 monthly SSAIB / BAFE Audit.

We are pleased to announce that it went really well. Here is what the inspector had to say about us:

“The company is well established in the fire and security sector. Office premises are spacious and well suited to current business needs.

The company processes are governed by an IS9001:2008 quality management system which is maintained well, although they are not actually certified for this at the present time.

Documentation and record keeping are excellent as are key performance indicators.

Engineers are well trained and ongoing requirements are regularly considered.


The company is progressive and expanding. Procedural application is good and key performance indicators are excellent.

The last round of site audits produced a very good report.

Standards are high all round.

Well done to Graham for leading this audit – excellent work!
