Ad Hoc Property Management launch new security division to offer range of property security solutions
Ad Hoc Property Management, Europe's leading providers of Property Guardians, have launched a new business division to sit alongside its core offering - Ad Hoc Security UK Limited - and to strengthen its security service for property owners.
The company, which already lends help to vacant property owners through commercial and residential Property Guardianship, will focus the new arm of the business solely on security and technology, using its affordable security guards and Cyclops powered Smart Camera Tower System, and Smart Alarm System at the forefront of its property protection solutions.
The new area of business will operate out of Ad Hoc's Midlands office in Birmingham, but will have a national mandate with Darren Tubb, former area manager for the Midlands, heading up the new division. Having worked with Ad Hoc since 2010 and built up an extensive knowledge and experience in the property management and security industries, Darren's new appointment to UK General Manager of the security arm of the business comes well received.
"Building on our core business while offering clients a niche expertise in real estate protection and security services is an exciting development for Ad Hoc. The range of products that Ad Hoc offer are some of the best in the industry and will allow property owners to protect and monitor their properties 24/7," said Darren Tubb, General Manager for Ad Hoc Security UK Limited.
While security guards are a great immediate option for property protection, the technology side of the security solutions works a bit differently. The Cyclops powered Smart Alarm and Smart Camera Tower System both work around the clock ensuring properties are safe from trespassers and vandals. The alarm system has the ability to detect motion, heat, threshold breaches, and smoke, while the camera tower, sitting at six metres tall, offers a 360 degree camera which can be programmed to move zones at set intervals. The camera also provides a 36x optical zoom which magnifies distances of up to 150 yards and has a 12x digital zoom which digitally enhances the optical image.
"All of our security solutions have been deployed by a number of clients around the UK who have found success in protecting their properties. The Smart Camera Tower in particular uses a state-of-the-art technology, the same technology as used by US defence centre The Pentagon, giving property owners the peace of mind they need when leaving property or land unattended," said Simon Finneran, Managing Director of Ad Hoc Property Management. "Ad Hoc is the first business in its industry to have launched a charter to underpin and safeguard excellent working relationships with its Guardians, and now with the addition of the security services, Ad Hoc is the first to develop business that offers specifically tailored security solutions. That is why I believe we remain the go-to organisation for nearly all vacant property protection services."
Ad Hoc Property Management, predominately known for Property Guardianship, has been operating for over 25 years in Europe and the UK. The Property Occupation Model, where Property Guardians move into a range of vacant commercial and residential buildings, has been hugely successful as a deterrent to vandalism, fly-tipping and squatting, and has been widely adopted across the commercial and public sectors. Some buildings, or parts of them however, are simply not suitable as living accommodation, which is where Ad Hoc's new security business will work in conjunction with Guardianship to provide clients with robust protection arrangements.
