Many of us dedicate a lot of time, effort and money developing new properties and it is therefore important to consider the measures needed to secure the property when vacant.
Today, the team at SPS are offering their advice on securing vacant buildings before sold/leased.
Vacant properties are particularly vulnerable to vandalism and intrusion and therefore it is important to consider the security measures required.
While all properties will benefit from the installation of CCTV, larger, commercial buildings in particular will require systems, which can be monitored remotely from a mobile, tablet or response centre, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The installation of CCTV can be completed in four steps; Property Inspection, Equipment Selection, Installation and Maintenance and Monitoring.

We have recently completed various jobs around the UK including a number of CCTV projects, for both commercial and domestic properties. The process of installing your CCTV system is managed entirely by our team.
Maintaining the appearance of the building is also important, when looking for buyers or tenants. Temporary fencing and steel security can be installed as preventative measures, without disturbing the existing structure or perimeter.
This applies to residential properties too, which as well as commercial buildings, would also benefit from an alarm system – a measure needed by not only vacant, but also occupied properties.
Nowadays, alarms not only detect intruders, but also floods, fires etc. Alarm systems are the traditional measure of security for both private and commercial buildings. While they have been used for many years there is still the assumption that these systems are used mainly for occupied properties and that they must be permanent. SPS offers short-term alarm solutions, to secure your property out of hours and this is managed from our Alarm Receiving Centre which is staffed 24/7.
While there are various steps and processes involved in developing both commercial and residential property, you must also consider the importance of maintaining and securing the building once the work is complete.
