    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do I need a Business Alarm System for my premises?

    Business Security Alarm Systems are designed to protect commercial premises, staff and stock from break-ins, vandalism and business disruption. Eastern’s free site survey allows us to tailor the design of your security alarm to the specific needs of your business – covering the particular weaknesses of your building.

    If you’re worried about the disruption crime brings, an intruder alarm with remote monitoring will keep premises protected – even when you’re not there!

    But won't a Commercial Burglar Alarm ATTRACT criminals to my business?

    Curiously, some business owners are concerned that, rather than a deterrent, a security system could make a burglar believe that there was something worth stealing on their premises.

    The problem is that, in the modern era, there is ALWAYS something worth stealing behind the standard locked office door. It’s not just computers and other equipment, it’s data. And, as a business owner, you are responsible for ensuring that the personal data of customers is properly protected. This means that a security system has become a necessity.

    The truth is: criminals are more likely to burgle a business they think is an easy target. Installing an Intruder Alarm System is an investment. It’s a deterrent that burglars and other criminals do not ignore.

    How much do Business Intruder Alarm Systems cost?

    The outlay for your business’s Intruder Alarm System depends on the size and complexity of the system you need. The precise requirements will be established once we’ve worked through any weaknesses in your security. And that’s what your site survey is for. We will come to your site for free – you can book yours here.

    How do I find a reputable Business Alarm System installer?

    When choosing a Business Alarm System installer, it is crucial you select a reputable security company with a long, relevant track record. If you don’t, you’re putting your security in the hands of amateurs and leaving your premises, staff and stock at risk. You might as well have bought your Burglar Alarm off Amazon and asked the bloke in the pub to fit it.

    For a reputable security company, look no further than Eastern Security. We are SSAIB approved and have over 25 years of experience in the design and installation of Commercial Burglar Alarm Systems. There is no substitute for professional knowledge earned the hard way… through extensive experience!

    Do you offer a maintenance service for Business Alarm Systems?

    Yes, we offer a comprehensive maintenance service for all our Commercial Alarm Systems. Our team of experienced engineers is on hand to deal with any technical issues you may have, and we’ll try to fix them on the same day. If humanly possible, we will! We also offer a 24/7 monitoring service so you can be confident that your business is protected around the clock.

    What happens if my Business Intruder Alarm goes off?

    Long gone are the days of automatic Police response.

    If your Commercial Intruder Alarm system goes off, our 24/7 monitoring service will confirm whether it is a genuine alarm. If so, they will contact the emergency services and your designated keyholder. If you don’t have a monitoring contract, your keyholders will have to deal with the event. Genuine or false! This can be extremely traumatic at worst OR an inconvenience at best.

    Do you offer a warranty on Business Alarm Systems?

    Yes, we offer a 12-month warranty on all our Commercial Alarm Systems. This covers all parts and labour, so you can be confident that your security system is protected and working hard to protect your people and property.

    Can you design a bespoke Business Alarm System for my premises?

    Yes, we offer a tailored design service for all our customers requiring a Business Alarm System. During the site survey, we work with you to understand your specific security needs… that’s why we always do a free site survey. So we can assess your premises and make sure that the business security system we design is the best possible solution for you. Your premises, staff, visitors and stock!

    Why should I trust Eastern? Do you have any relevant accreditations?

    Yes, we are accredited by the SSAIB (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board) for the design, installation and maintenance of commercial burglar alarm systems. This means that our security systems meet the highest standards in the industry AND we are regularly audited to make sure they continue to do so. We’ve got a long track record of expertise. It dates back to 1980 as Dependabel and from 2000 as Eastern Security.

    Whatsmore our testimonials speak for themselves. Very loudly!

      5 Benefits of Installing an Intruder Alarm System for Your Business Premises

      • Reduced insurance premiums – providing your business intruder alarm has been fitted by an approved SSAIB installer
      • Security for your stock from external intruders and internal pilfering
      • Protection for your employees from unwanted visitors up to no good
      • Peace of mind and trust for your customers/clients that their data is held securely
      • A deterrent to potential burglars and other criminals

      To get these benefits you need to have the right intruder detection system, tailored to the security needs of your business premises. And that’s what your site survey does – highlights those precise security weaknesses. And what’s needed to fix them!

      Wired & Wireless Business Alarms

      Can a wireless intruder alarm system provide your business premises with adequate protection and is it the most cost-effective option? We help you to make the right choice. Just book a site survey to find out what you need.

      Area Setting / Zonal Alarms

      Specific parts of your building can be armed 24/7. Others can be protected by your business alarm system as you please. Areas/Zones can be armed when staff don’t need to be in there. And disarmed when they do!

      We used Eastern Security as we were looking for a trustworthy company to whom installed good alarms and have a very good response time upon activation. Eastern security sent over a surveying team to observe all the areas, blind spots and provided a full report to secure our work premises. We were happy with the quotation and they attended fast and installed the alarms, monitors plus cameras efficiently. They then showed us full operation of the systems and provided a full maintenance package in which we accepted. Overall we are very pleased with their services and would recommend, if you are looking for a trusted, polite and customer focused security company then call Eastern Security.

      Monitoring Your Security System from an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC)

      For added security, we can provide ARC monitored alarm systems, and because we have the SSAIB accreditation you can also receive Police response. The Police recommend the SSAIB accreditation because the alarms installed by approved companies have reduced the number of false alarms – reducing wasted time for their officers. You can only have a Police monitored security system if you have a current maintenance contract with an approved company such as Eastern!

      Maintenance of Your Business Intruder Alarm System

      With all technology, time causes unavoidable wear and tear. And that means faulty parts. While this can’t be avoided, you can make your alarm last a lot longer with regular maintenance.

      Just as you get your car serviced every year, it’s the same with business intruder alarm installations. A small repair can stop a major problem, which is why we offer all of our customers a maintenance contract. It’s a must have not a nice to have.

      Business Intruder Alarm Takeovers

      Even if your commercial alarm wasn’t installed by us, we can take it over to maintain it. So if you’re unhappy with your current security supplier, give us a call on 01702 467850.

      Key Holder Services for Your Business Alarm

      Many of our commercial customers take advantage of our key holder service. If your intruder alarm is activated, one of our engineers will attend to investigate the cause and repair any fault straight away. If possible.

      If no repair is necessary, they will reset the alarm to secure the site. If an intruder is present, they will wait for the Police to arrive and inform a member of staff. It’s a lot less hassle than having to go to your premises yourself! Find out more here.

      We have used Eastern Security for the past 20 years and we have always been completely happy with the reliable service they provide.

        Eastern Security: making Southend and the whole of Essex a safer place to live

        Eastern Security serves the whole of Essex (and parts of London) from their HQ in Southend-on-Sea, the home of the longest pier in the world!

        This includes Colchester (the oldest town in Britain), Chelmsford (our county town), Basildon (one of the early new towns built in 1949), Rayleigh (with its traditional high street) and Grays (home to Tilbury Docks a major hub for shipping).

        But also prosperous Brentwood, seaside town Clacton on Sea (with a shorter pier) and Canvey Island… the largest island in Essex!

        Essex Police Police have their work cut out…

        …to cover the 1,404 square miles of Essex county. Because the Crimerate website says Essex is the 20th most criminal county in England, Wales & Northern Ireland!

        Basildon suffers the most crime. With Clacton-on-Sea and Harlow following. While Billericay ranks as the safest town followed by Rayleigh then Wickford.

        Isn’t it time you took steps to improve the security of your home or business premises?
