National Home Security May Day; Tips on protecting your property

Monday 30th May is National Home Security May Day, dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of Home Security.

More than two thirds of Brits will be tackling DIY and renovations projects over this Spring Bank Holiday, therefore this date is to encourage people to think about how important their property security is too.

National Home Security May Day will be sponsored by Yale, the home locks service, and the date will offer tips and advice to help you improve the security of your home, just in time for the summer!

Security Tips From Advantage 1

As we enter the weekend of the clocks changing, make sure your alarms and security plans are reviewed to reflect this.

Also be extra vigilant when opening in the mornings for persons or cars hanging around, brief your staff to raise any of these siting’s to your security manager who can take the next necessary steps.

Have a great weekend and welcome to spring.
Advantage One will be bringing you regular tips, advice and updates.

All of us at Advantage One pay our respects to the recent victims of the London attack.

Exciting times at Advantage One

Exciting times at Advantage One

Exciting times at Advantage One as we progress in to an era of passed growth due to the success of our retail security team.

Our Civil Recovery scheme that recovers the costs incurred by our clients from third parties (i.e. shoplifters or damaged caused) is also seeing increased success as the word is getting round we take legal action to recover the debt. If you are a business that is suffering stock loss feel free to talk to us in confidence as there a number of scenarios we provide to catch thieves, whether they be staff or people entering your premises acting as customers or just entering with intent.

Our corporate teams are also busy looking after the front desks of many blue chip companies, often not attaining the glory of the retail team but all doing a good job monitoring who is coming and going, on foot or vehicle and keeping our clients assets safe on some sites this includes IP (intellectual property) that if taken could cost our clients huge potential loses.

Then we have the reactive one call response where the guys and girls work 24/7 responding to panic alarms and intruder alarms whether it be for medical centres or business premises we are there to support you and assist in securing your staff and buildings.

With out blowing our own trumpet, these are just a few of the high quality services we provide that provide our clients with value for money.

From all of us at A1 head office we would like to say thank you to the teams who may not always see us but we appreciate your efforts.

For anyone out there who is thinking of security in any form we look forward to hearing from you and providing the best price and service for you.

Advantage One Retail Security Team have been in action

Advantage One Retail Security Team have been in action for a client whose store was being targeted by professional career shoplifters. The store had been noticing increased stock loses and wanted to send a clear statement that they were not going to tolerate any more. Under the supervision of one of our area managers the undercover team did what they do best and apprehended numerous persons whom for legal reasons cannot be named but we can say the methods they tried to use to interfere with security tags and systems varied in complexity. We can say that some were surprised to find that their foil lined bags certainly did not work but only highlighted them more to the security team. The word soon got out to the criminal fraternity that our guards were out in force and that the area was off limits area to them unfortunately the what happens is that these undesirable characters then moved on to other stores in the area out of our jurisdiction, whilst we can advise these stores what is happening we do need their approval to go further. Meanwhile in other areas we are pleased to see further organic growth to the business and welcome our new starters to the business. if you know of worthy candidates who are SIA approved that would like to be part of a fun friendly team then please ask them to get in contact as we are recruiting again.
