For many local authorities and empty property organisations, unfortunately not all of their properties are fit for living in, be it for health and safety or other reasons. However, this does not mean that all is lost. There are security solutions available that do not cost the earth, that not only help the empty property owner, but also the surrounding community. These include the following:
CYCLOPS is a new CCTV system designed to detect unwanted visitors in and around the property instantly. It includes heat seeking technology and unique built-in filters, which enable the system to tell the difference between a small animal and a person. CYCLOPS delivers instant reports of all developments on request, meaning you the property owner can monitor your property 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. CYCLOPS is also highly visible, which adds to its ability to deter unwanted guests.
Ad Hoc’s alarm solutions, which are designed to detect everything from motion, threshold breaches, smoke and extreme temperatures. Each alarm can be programmed to operate at specific times of the day as well as activated remotely via a switch. In addition, the alarms will not cause structural damage to properties or listed buildings, and can be monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days per year with manned response where necessary. With no fixed-term contract required, they can be installed and activated for any time period beyond one day, accommodating both daily and monthly rates.
Ad Hoc’s security guard service is a flexible solution for when a property is empty for anything from a few days to several months. Security guards can also be deployed when the property has had squatters removed or when there is work required to make the property compliant before Guardians take up residence. This solution is particularly effective in high risk areas where visibility is a key requirement.
