If your home is on the ground floor or single storey then generally one smoke and carbon monoxide detector is enough in order to give you an early alert of smoke or fire. You need to always be able to hear their alarms in any location of your home and if you can’t then you need to install more. In the event that you have a two or three-storey residential property then you should have the alarms fitted on every single floor and once again assess if everyone can hear them inside any room of your property when they are triggered. You should complete a check every month to make certain you can hear the alarms sound and change any batteries on a regular basis. Some alarms are connected to your mains electricity and some are battery-operated, therefore, testing on a regular basis will advise you in the event that there are any problems with either.
It is recommended that home fire and carbon monoxide alarms should be positioned outside of each independent sleeping area as well as in the immediate area of any bedrooms. They need to be installed on the wall or ceiling according to the detector’s directions.

CCTV footage can be used to gather evidence which can allow you to develop a picture of activity and can even help with clearing up delivery disagreements.

Access control systems offer enhanced security to businesses, homes or premises by offering flexible management over who is permitted access and at different times. They are among the most used security systems for businesses at this time and there is a wide range of types of systems available to meet your needs.
Access control can be applied on entrance doors, gateways, lifts, barriers or any entrance or exit points to control who enters and leaves a property. They are a solution to give protection to people inside a property, a specific room or area in a residential or commercial property, belongings and systems in addition to the property itself. They make it possible for you to keep track of and control who is entering and leaving at any time.
An access control system not only provides security for who is entering a property or site but also permits fast entry with a pin code or swipe access card.
Types Of Access Control Door Systems
There are different types of Access Control Door Systems and everyone works a little differently. Elite Fire & Security are experts in the types available and will be able to recommend the ideal system for your property, business, needs and spending plan.
Keypad Entry Access Control Systems
Key Fob Entry Access Control Systems
Card Entry Access Control Systems
Fingerprint Entry Access Control Systems
Retina Entry Access Control Systems
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Entry Access Control Systems
Keypad Entry Access – This form of access control system utilises a keypad with a numeric keypad for entering and exiting. Businesses and homeowners can change the numeric code at any time if necessary.
Key Fob Entry Access – This is when somebody who has been given permission to access a property or an area uses a wireless remote control key fob to open the entry point, similar to a car key fob. The fob is battery-operated.
Card Entry Access – Access to an access point or door is controlled by a keycard that contains a security token. An installed keycard reader opens and closes the door when the card is tapped against the reader or swiped through a swipe reader.
Fingerprint Entry Access – Biometric (fingerprint and retina) entry access control systems are growing in popularity because they are considered more secure due to the fact that the entry code, fob or card can not be passed on to any individual who isn’t authorised. A fingerprint entry access control system allows authorised individuals to gain access promptly while preventing unauthorised individuals from doing so.
Retina Entry Access – Biometric (retina and fingerprint) entry access control systems are a growing market with lots of companies using them because they are seen as more secure access systems. The entry code, fob or card can not be passed on to anyone who isn’t authorised and only allows access to authorised people.
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Entry Access – Access control systems that use RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) allow entry to authorised people. Radio waves are transmitted by the RFID control reader, and radio waves are transmitted by the RFID tags (cards/fobs). When the card is within range, the antenna within it captures the waves and broadcasts a message that contains a unique number from the chip, which allows access.
Access control door systems have the same purpose of permitting or refusing entry or exit but they do so in different ways. You can have an access control door system in a business property or home, or if you have land that is secured by fencing and gates which enables you to manage who enters. The systems can be developed and fitted to doors, gates, barriers, turnstiles and much more.
Access Control System Benefits
They allow quick and easy access or entry to anyone authorised
They limit entry to those who are not authorised
You can see who has entered and when (log of entry)
They can limit regions within a building or residential or commercial property quickly and remotely
They are difficult to break into and gain entry without the required authorisation
They protect people inside a building
They protect valuables and belongings in a building
They protect businesses, sites and residential or commercial properties
They allow speedy and easy access to anyone authorised
The system you choose will certainly depend on your property and security requirements. Elite Fire & Security will carry out a full security appraisal of your site and learn more about your needs then afterwards recommend the very best option for you and your budget.
As opposed to an access control door system, an intruder alarm will not prevent someone from entering a building or area, it will just warn you or others that the area has been accessed without your permission.

Text Alert – when the alarm is activated, an SMS message is sent to inform your nominated contacts of a break-in
Police Monitoring – the authorities will be notified through the alarm receiving centre if your alarm is triggered
Wireless Intruder Alarm Systems – Wireless systems allow you to install sensors, cameras, beams and movement detectors around your property that alert you whenever something or someone is detected. Alarm systems like these are great if you have numerous entry points because the system will notify you as to which sensors, cameras, beams and motions have been triggered.
An Audible Intruder Alarm is a loud alarm and flashing strobe lights to draw attention. Intruders will be alerted to such systems, however, they are typically unmonitored key holders and the police will not be notified except if a member of the public calls to report a disturbance. Consequently, they are not always the most ideal selection for commercial properties as they rely on neighbours or passers-by noticing and reporting the disturbance as well as some experienced burglars being undaunted by the alarm and flashing lights.
