What can Castle Security do?
As the UK 's leading provider of electronic fire and security solutions, Castle recommends applying the following measures to further reduce the risk to your premises:
Your premises are more vulnerable when unoccupied; monitored intruder alarms and automatic fire detection systems are particularly valuable under these circumstances.
To deter intruders and detect any arson activities early, installation of a monitored cctv system is recognised as a proven deterrent.
In order to control who is entering the premises, where and when, an access control system can be installed – it restricts access to individuals not permitted, whilst authorised persons can enter freely.
To ensure that alarm activations receive a prompt response from the emergency services, alarms should be monitored by a third-party central monitoring station.
The threat of fire can be recognised in its early stages with the help of sophisticated fire detection technology.
According to the Lothian & Borders Police regulations, Keyholders must be capable of attending their Premises within twenty minutes of being notified that their alarm has activated.
Care Communication systems for the specialised needs of healthcare environments. Caring for patients is the most important task of the healthcare professionals
To ensure all-round safety, fire detection and protection equipment needs to be regularly maintained by an approved company.

Theft and criminal damage by intruders mean a constant threat and ever increasing costs to businesses.
Whether you need external intruder detection, building security, or to safeguard key internal areas we have the answers you need. Castle will assess the particular risks your premises and operations present, and build a burglar alarm monitoring and security solution around them combining proven techniques with leading edge technology.
Our approach to intruder alarms and security alarm systems ensures that your system solution is user-friendly, simple, trouble free and effective at protecting your business, employees, visitors, information and assets.
Security Systems need 24 hour support – regular servicing ensures that your system meets insurance conditions. It cuts downtime, maintains performance, and helps equipment provide longer service.
Callouts for emergencies and system resets are important too. Delays can be dangerous and expensive. We provide the support you need. We arrange inspections and routine maintenance. We have a large team of trained service engineers, ensuring that emergency assistance is always nearby, anywhere in the country. We aim to attend emergency call-outs within four hours, night or day.
We can also provide round the clock support with our Resolve service. This offers remote diagnostics and system resets, giving technicians at the Resolve support centres access to the same management facilities and diagnostic tools as an engineer on site.The majority of calls are completed in minutes without an engineer visit – ensuring your protection is maintained, and removing the need to have staff on site outside business hours.
Nowadays CCTV has become an essential method in combatting vandalism, helping to reduce crime, protecting public spaces, businesses and organisations.
CCTV systems can provide the 'eyes' and in turn an early warning system, ensuring that crime against people, vandalism and theft is reduced. CCTV recordings can provide invaluable evidence improving the chance of conviction.
Castle Security can supply CCTV camera systems to fit all your domestic or commercial needs, both internally and externally. The CCTV solutions Castle can provide can be linked/integrated with others systems including security lighting, access control, intruder and fire alarms.

Access Control Security Solutions
Prevent unauthorised access with Castle's Access Control Systems
Whatever your premises you occupy, your basic security provisions must include the ability to control who enters, where and when.
Access control systems provide a range of technical solutions to a single problem; the need to allow free flow of authorised people whilst denying entry to unwanted guests.
Controlling who comes in through the front or back door is essential. However, this is only a small element of the full potential that access control systems offer.
Sensitive areas such as a manager's office, communication room or stock cupboard may need special protection, as well as protecting staff from attack.
Whether you need a consultation and advice on access control at the design stage, or effective solutions to an existing security problem, we will put our expertise at your disposal.
We can provide the skills and resources you need from design right through to installation and maintenance.
