Who Watches Your Property When You’re Not There?

Your home is one of the most important things you own and we understand that you want to protect it. Moreover, if you also have a business or commercial property, protecting your livelihood is going to be high on your priority list. But you shouldn’t have to worry about taking on the burden of security by yourself.

That is where BAC Fire and Security comes in. We offer a range of security solutions that will give you the peace of mind that, even when you can’t be there, your property will always be safe and protected.

If you’re in any doubt that hiring a professional company like BAC is the best option for your domestic or personal property, there are a few things you should know. We aim to provide a superior service at all times and our passion is keeping you and your property safe.

What Are The Potential Risks To Your Home Or Business If It In Unmonitored Or If You Are Away?

Unfortunately, we live in a world where nothing should be taken for granted; including the safety of you and your property. Even when you are in the home, there is a risk that someone may break in and take you by surprise. Of course, most burglaries happen when the intruder feels confident that nobody is home but it isn’t unheard of for break-ins to happen while residents are in the property.

But when you have to leave your property unattended, there is an even greater risk of an intruder trying to gain entry. In a lot of cases, burglars will scope out the property before they strike to ensure that it is indeed empty. You might think that putting your lights on a timer will help, but this can become pretty obvious if you’re away for a long period of time.

If your home or business is obviously kitted out with a security system, this can be an instant deterrent for a potential intruder. They are much more likely to try to break into a property where they are not going to be caught or disturbed with an alarm. If they can clearly see that your home doesn’t have any sort of security in place, there is a much higher risk of them making that attempt. Research has shown that properties without an active security system in place are up to 3.5 times more likely to suffer a break-in.

What’s more, if someone happened to notice an intruder entering your property while you were away and called for assistance, the police don’t always arrive quickly. But with a proper security system in place, you have more eyes on your property so even if the suspect does manage to get away, cameras and security guards will likely be able to get a good look so that apprehension is much more likely.

If you are away and a break-in occurs at your property, you may never know until you return. This can be a huge shock, especially if you have just come back from a relaxing holiday. You then face the distraught of knowing that someone has been in your home or workplace and the fact that you will need to contact your insurance company to try to recover the cost of any losses.

In most instances, personal belongings are rarely recovered.

However, with a system in place, you will be able to receive real-time updates and notifications on the status of the property.

What Are The Benefits Of Hiring A Security To Watch Your Property Or Business While You Are Away From It?

It isn’t difficult to see, when we look at the dangers of not having a security system in place, that there are a lot of benefits in installing one. One of the biggest concerns for home and business owners is that a security system will incur a lot of costs. But when you think about the many packages and options on offer, the cost may not be as much as you may have thought.

What’s more, the cost of replacing stolen items or repairing damage from a break-in can often be incredibly costly. Not to mention the emotional impact an event like this would have. Having a security system installed is an excellent way to avoid these problems.

A lot of people keep valuable items in their homes. We aren’t just talking about your top of the range smart TV but personal items that have high sentimental value. Some of these items may also have a high cash value and are hugely attractive to a burglar who will have no regard for the emotional toll losing these items would have on you. In business settings, there is also going to be a wealth of value equipment that can be costly to replace. With the simple installation of a security system, you can rest assured that your valuable belongings will be safe and protected.

We have touched on the fact that the simple presence of an alarm or security system will act as a deterrent to intruders. This is your first line of defence and should be taken seriously. By having a security system in place, your home insurance policy will be significantly lower as the insurance company won’t see the property as such a high risk.

The most up to date home and commercial security systems have a range of smart features that go way beyond the simple sound of an alarm like the systems of days gone by. 24-hour monitoring allows you to feel confident that there will always be eyes on your home. But if you want to stay in the loop, which we imagine you would do, there are also options for notifications or to check in with real-time cameras.

But the biggest benefit is that you won’t have the weight of worry on your mind when you can’t be there. The most common reason that people leave their homes or businesses is to take a well-earned holiday. The last thing you want in this situation is to be fretting over the safety of your property. With a system in place, you can kick back and relax while everything is in our capable hands. 

How A Security Company Can Help

You could, in theory, purchase and install an alarm system and use a smart app to control and monitor it. But this relies on you constantly checking up on your property when you aren’t there. This is an added pressure that a lot of home and business owners don’t have time for. But hiring a professional company will allow you to get on with things, safe in the knowledge that your property is being well looked after.

One of the best things that we can do for you is to help monitor your home around the clock. But much more than this, our team is fully trained and knows the security business inside and out. Whether you are looking for a simple alarm system or full security guard protection, working with professionals ensures the best results.

When installing components of the security system such as sensors, cameras and alarms, hiring a professional security company like BAC means that the equipment will be correctly installed and in full working order. What’s more, with regular maintenance, we can help ensure that your system is always running at its best.

But you don’t want to just hire anyone; you need to know that the company you have chosen is reliable, responsible and has the experience needed to get the job done correctly. At BAC, we are proud of our vast experience and impeccable service history. So not only will you reap all the benefits of working with a security company, you’ll also know that everything is in the best hands. From the design of your system through to installation, monitoring and maintenance, we have everything covered.

The Different Types Of Services Offered By BAC

Here at BAC, we know that there isn’t a standard type of security system that will benefit every home or business. For this reason, we pride ourselves on providing a range of services. What’s more, you can tailor your package to your needs by taking just the bits you need. If you are unsure about what elements of our service would be beneficial to you, we have on-hand phone support to talk through your options and figure out the best approach.


One of the greatest benefits of hiring our guards as a keyholder is that you will be able to leave your property in capable hands and not have to worry about attending in the middle of the night if there is an emergency.

When you hire us as keyholders, you will provide us with a set of keys and any security access codes and our guards will take care of the rest. In the event of an emergency, our guards will head to your property to deal with the situation. All of our guards receive the highest training and are fully equipped to handle emergency situations professionally and thoroughly.

If required, the guard has immediate access to our 24-hour response centre where the police or other emergency services can be contacted quickly and efficiently.

In the morning after a call out, you will be provided with a full report from the attending guard detailing what caused the system to activate, how the issue was resolved and any other action that was taken.

There are many benefits to using our keyholding services but one of the most important, in a business setting, is that your staff will be far better protected. The risk of a staff member attending an emergency is great especially if there is an aggressive intruder. Our security guards have the training and expertise to handle this type of situation safely.

Access Control

One of the best ways to secure your property is to limit who can gain entry and this can be easily achieved using one of our access control systems. BAC is proud to be a PAXTON approved access control installer so you can feel confident that we offer a compliant and professional service.

Whether you are looking to control access to a single door or install a more complex system across a larger building, we can help. Our electric locks offer basic access control while our schedule setting and user logs provide a more detailed system.

You have a choice of a standalone access control system or, if you prefer, a networked system giving you more options to protect your property. 

CCTV Surveillance

The presence of CCTV is a deterrent in itself so if you are looking to prevent attempted break-ins then this is one of the most important services we offer. What’s more, in the event that an intruder does gain entry, we will have appropriate footage to hand over to the police meaning that the intruder will more likely be caught and charged. A CCTV system is a great way to offer peace of mind to yourself and anyone else who comes into your property.

When you use BAC Fire and Security, we will create a bespoke CCTV system to meet your needs and will maintain and monitor it as you require. All of our systems are fully compliant for all businesses.

What’s more, we offer a choice of systems that can be changed to suit your needs. Whether you are looking for something on the budget end for a small home or a top of the range HD system, we have the answer.

Commercial And Home Alarms

The systems that are needed in a commercial situation may differ from those that are required in a domestic home. As such, BAC offers a choice of alarm designed for both commercial properties and homes.

For commercial and home alarms, one of our professional team will visit your property and perform a full assessment to determine the best approach. Once we have completed our consultation, we will work on creating your bespoke system. You’ll work with us every step of the way and we will explain why we have chosen the system and how it will benefit your property.

We will also provide you with training on how to use the system as well as offering this training to staff members or anyone else who will control the system. Your alarm system will come with benefits such as a smartphone app for easier operation and monitoring.

Alarm Systems With Emergency Alerts

There is the option to have your alarm system entirely monitored by ourselves and you can feel confident that this will be a thorough and complete service. However, some of our clients prefer to self-monitor. In any case, we offer emergency alerts sent directly to your smart device.

When the alarm is triggered, you will immediately receive a push notification allowing you to assess the situation and decide whether you need to take action.

Security Guard Response

There is no need for you to attend to every triggered alarm because we know that you have other things to be getting on with. If you’re away and unable to attend, you need to have the peace of mind that someone else will tend to the problem for you.

We have a security guard response service which you can subscribe to and receive a wealth of benefits associated with this. Our team of highly trained security guards will attend the property and perform checks upon the alarm being triggered. As we have discussed already, there is an option to nominate us as a keyholder so that our guards can enter the property and check for problems.

Moreover, we offer an internal and external patrol service which is an excellent deterrent to potential intruders. If the alarm is triggered, our guards will reset the system before they leave to ensure protection continues in their absence.
