About Century 21 Security Systems Limited
Century 21 is a well established, privately owned company located in Havant, Hampshire adjacent to the A27/M27 and A3 for easy access to the South East and London. We are a National Security Inspectorate NSI NACOSS Gold approved intruder installer, NSI Fire Gold and BAFE approved for the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of fire alarm systems. We are also an approved installer for BT RedCARE, DualCom, CAME and FAAC. Our expertise extends to all areas of physical security and keyholding with the exception of manned guarding.
We are extremely proud of our client base that includes 'Blue Chip' companies, prestigious landowners in London and the Home Counties, and a multitude of commercial and residential properties in London and the South East. We value each and every one of our customers and indeed a lot of work we do is from recommendations and repeat business from satisfied developers.
What sets Century 21 apart from the competition is that we are big enough to be noticed, but small enough to care. An ethic that embodies everything we do.
Below is a synopsis of areas that Century 21 specialise in:
Residential Intruder Alarms offer homeowners a first line of defence against criminal activity. When monitored a modern alarm system will call nominated keyholders and the police in the event of a confirmed activation. A Residential Intruder Alarms with integrated fire detection will also mean the Fire Brigade is also on call for the ultimate peace of mind if you are in or away from your home. New developments in peripherals for these systems mean that new devices are being released all the time. Items such as carbon monoxide alarms, flood water alarms and even environmental detection devices which will detect things such as an accumulation of damp are either available now or due to be released soon.
Residential CCTV provides homeowners with effective protection for the curtilage of a property and can also be focused on areas that may be targeted by thieves. It should be noted that a professionally installed CCTV system would give superior results to the plethora of 'DIY' system that are widely available and are much cheaper.
Residential Door entry and Video Door entry systems are an ideal solution where properties utilise communal entrances, where properties are multi-floored, or indeed where customers would like to see who is at the door before opening. This is also a good solution for customers who are less mobile to allow access to friends/family or nursing staff remotely.
Residential gate automation including remote audio/video systems provide an ideal solution to the remote operation of driveway gates for those who do not wish to or can not operate these gates manually or decline access to unwanted visitors. It is common for these systems to be linked to lighting to illuminate your drive as you arrive at night.
Residential Fire extinguishers can be provided as one off sales or maintained if preferred.
Commercial Intruder Alarms are an essential for any business premises. Sadly we have seen businesses targeted repeatedly where a good system is not in place. When considering an alarm system, either Intruder or Commercial Fire Alarm the business owner is advised to discuss this with their insurer in the first instance. The insurer will specify a grade of alarm system and monitoring to ensure your business is protected to their requirements for insurance purposes. You should find that a professionally installed system by a NACOSS approved installer would reduce your insurance premiums
Commercial CCTV, networked, monitored and with analytic software is more commonly seen as a cost effective and reliable alternative to manned guarding. In an increasing number of cases insurers prefer it. CCTV can be viewed remotely, networked to other sites and when monitored can be used to challenge intruders directly via Loudspeaker, keeping your staff out of harms way.
Commercial access control, including biometrics provides a reliable solution to restrict staff footfall in sensitive areas to those with access permissions. It can also double as a roll call for fire purposes for sites with high staffing levels to satisfy Health and Safety requirements
Commercial Door entry, both audio and video systems is a tried and tested method of controlling who has access to your property. Callers can be turned away without ever having sight of the inside of your business premises. Can also cut down on opportunist theft from third uncontrolled third parties.
Commercial Keyholding provides Commercial customers the opportunity to employ a trusted company to act as keyholders in the event of a site visit being required in antisocial hours. If an alarm is activated at three in the morning, a nominated keyholder will be called at three in the morning and the emergency services will expect them to attend within 20 minutes. We do provide this service for a number of our customers.
Commercial Fire Extinguishers can be supplied and we can also carry out maintenance to satisfy your Health & Safety obligations
Commercial Window Grilles and Gates, fixed bar and collapsible systems are an excellent physical deterrent to intruders and will slow down even the most determined of attackers to an extent where it is hoped the attempt will not be made. Collapsible gates are also useful in ventilating an area while retaining physical security. Our grilles and gates are tailor made to match your exact requirements. When coupled with Security Film, both reflective and impact resistant it is a major enhancement to glazed panel security. Security Film alone is a cost effective method of protecting glazed areas from physical attack. The film is extremely impact resistant and will hold together even after a surprising amount of abuse. A reflective finish will also reflect light back outside preventing people seeing in, although, as with all film, when the property is lighter inside than out the film is then transparent. We would recommend the installation of normal blinds inside if this remains an issue.
For vehicular management and to deter vehicular attack to your premises we can supply and install a full range of manual and automated retractable Bollards as well as Traffic Barriers and ANPR (Automated Number Plate Recognition) systems. We are approved installers for FAAC, CAME and ATG.
Lone worker solutions including GPS, listen in, man down and two-way communication provides peace of mind to those staff who are working alone or.
Physical security supplies including steel doors, locks, chains, can be supplied from our network of contacts within the industry at very competitive prices.
