Video surveillance is a great way to enhance the security of your business. It not only lets you keep a watchful eye on your premises, but also acts as a visual deterrent to potential intruders.
For small business owners, a burglary can have a substantial financial (as well as emotional) impact. SMEs must be vigilant not only in arming their premises, but also in the way in which they handle the security process.
The words General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are ingrained on the minds of businesses and consumers alike. After four years of EU-led negotiation, May 2018 saw an international rollout to bring European data regulation into line with the new ways in which data is used, with tougher penalties on those that breach these regulations.
Designed, tested and manufactured in the UK, the new accessories increase the range of doors that can be fitted with ExiSAFE, while also helping with the on-going maintenance of existing installations.
As part of a new centrally controlled vehicle security system, The North West Ambulance Service has recently updated the security of its premises at its Lancashire regional headquarters using Nortech's stainless steel bollards that house Nedap ANPR cameras.
The North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) NHS Trust operates around 1,000 vehicles to provide 1.1 million emergency and non-emergency patient journeys. It was established in 2006 by the merger of ambulance trusts from Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Merseyside, Cumbria and Lancashire. The Lancashire regional HQ is based near Broughton in Preston.
Nortech's new flagship boxed detector range boasts both intuitive and innovative detection technology packaged in a compact, slimline housing - which bucks the trend of its predecessors. The 8 Series range of single and dual channel detectors is set to cater to market demand for detectors that facilitate "plug-and-play" installation whilst still allowing full site configuration using the state-of-the-art DU800 diagnostics device and mobile app for the more tech savvy.
The sleek new housing is a result of a conscious move away from the traditional 11-pin relay base to a slimline DIN Rail mount housing which exposes more physical connection options. The 8 Series detectors incorporate Nortech's cutting-edge modular design, allowing for the expansion of channels, outputs and communication interfaces via the ingenious expansion port.
Gira, one of the world's leading full-range suppliers of intelligent system solutions for building management, launches the Gira System 106: a door communication system with user-friendly intercom. A dynamic statement piece for the home, the Gira System 106 is a highly flexible modular door station with intercom function, which can be enhanced with a range of optional Gira modules which include Door Station, Intercom, Call-button, Camera and Display Modules.
Protected by a 3 mm-thick design front plate, the Gira System 106 will fit any style of architecture, interior and/or brief and is available in Brushed Stainless Steel, Anodised Aluminium and White Lacquered Metal Alloy. Simply mounted on the wall, this new system is equally befitting new builds and retrofits.
