What is the importance of a bespoke security system design?

Any business or property that deal with high-value products are, unfortunately, more at risk of being targeted for theft.

If your property, shop, or business displays or stores high value products you may risk being targeted by a more sophisticated kind of criminal than a typical shop, warehouse, or commercial business. A professional raid may even use insider knowledge about the weaknesses of the site and organisation and such raids on an organisation are usually meticulously planned. As such, it is wise to carefully design your security system so they could withstand any planned and potentially complex assault which would put assets at risk, We always recommend specialist systems that are more technically advanced and able to withstand over-ride, tampering, blocking and obstruction and each system would need to be a bespoke design tailored precisely to operate and protect the valuable assets to where it has been implemented.

We always recommend a system fit for purpose, but we always advise that deploying a technically superior system to identify and prevent people from scoping the site before an intrusion and protect against insider theft and staff corruption. A system that allows for greater integration capability and scalability will always give a client the desired flexibility and greater analytical alarm management and these features, in our opinion, are imperative when protecting high value assets.

Another consideration away from the technical aspects of a bespoke design is that a client may want the security system to act as a visual deterrent, or it may need to sit discreetly in its environment. There are pro’s and con’s to both but this is part and parcel of professionally designing a bespoke security system, you recognise the value of assets, the environment they are within and most importantly listening to the client and understanding the risks the present to you, they know there business better than anyone.

Whether the concerns are tracking and recovering irreplaceable assets, protecting client data or protecting your business’s reputation, there are systems that will assist in there protection and we have the experience and knowledge in offering the perfect solution for each environment.

Whichever system you choose, you need to guarantee the personal safety of staff both leading up to and during an incident. If risk to staff members is a real threat, we make it an absolute priority to implement the necessary protection measures to keep you and your staff safe.

We ensure that advanced systems are designed and include much deeper layers of security than others, to preserve your peace of mind.

How do we approach our bespoke designs?

First you will meet with one of our Senior Management team who has a proven track record in your field and experience of dealing with situations like yours. Consultations of this kind are only held at Senior Management level so that we can fully understand your requirements and concerns.

This consultation can take place at any preferred venue to suit your requirements.

We will undertake a thorough risk analysis of your situation and then one of our designers will prepare a technical specification based on your requirements. We will then present a range of options for you to consider.

Throughout the process, only our Senior Management team dealing with your design will have access to your information. You can rest assured that information following your risk analysis will remain confidential.

On request, we can put you in touch with other clients in your field to discuss their experience of working with us.

What other
clients have to
say about us

A Plus provides an excellent return on investment, not just through the solution installed, but the general experience they offer from pre-install to post-install and right through to the maintenance of the system. We knew we had made the right decision with A Plus as they offered a comprehensive and detailed proposal and project plan. The skill level of their engineers was a pleasant surprise with their knowledge of IT and networks, as well as electronic security, which made dealing with our internal IT team very smooth. Apart from that, the fact we never had to chase them for anything was a very nice surprise!

ACS International Schools

We needed a partner that would install phases of security solutions over the next 2-3 years as well as offer a great service within a maintenance agreement. A Plus were top of the pile and were fully deserved in winning the contract. We recommend A Plus as a one stop shop. The consultancy and design, through to implementation and after care was the best we have had. The level of service and detail that A Plus goes into to ensure a seamless project was excellent. They continue to exceed at all tasks given to them.

The Dorchester Collection

We needed to roll out the new system throughout Scotland, London and Europe which was very challenging. A Plus and their advice and flexibility made this process much easier for the whole project team. The one to one dialogue and personal service has been excellent. We can speak to a familiar voice at any time, morning and night which has exceeded our expectations. Since the project roll out was completed, we have been able to centrally control the physical security of the Government’s Estates seamlessly. The process Is now simpler which has led to better productivity.
