1st Choice Offers Homeowners Advice on Door Entry Systems Essex
Last year’s crime figures for Essex were described as ‘disappointing’ by Conservative Council Leader, John Lamb. There was a rise of 14% in 2018, with a larger rise of 33% for violent offences. These figures are in line with regions across the UK, but they are nevertheless causing concern to the Essex police force. Superintendent Nick Morris reassured people living and working across the county that 150 new police officers would be joining the force in Essex over 2019.
Then in December 2018 a new spate of burglaries provided a new cause of anxiety. 27 burglaries were reported over 26 days. The burglars were accessing homes in the early hours of the morning through uPVC doors that hadn’t been double-locked. DC Greg Najdan, of Braintree CID made the following request: “I ask people to be vigilant for anyone acting suspiciously and to take some simple measures to secure your homes as burglars look for easy opportunities.”
Providing Essex Homeowners With Security Advice
As a local security systems installer, 1st Choice is often the first point of call. Anxious homeowners wanting to defend their property against theft and violent crime ask us for the most effective security solutions.

A number of our callers were concerned about vulnerable older relatives. Where the person was living alone, and already had an alarm system, we suggested that a door access system might provide the extra layer of security required.
Why Install Door Entry Systems Essex?
Home security access systems allow you to identify anyone seeking access, before letting them in. There are two kinds of door access system to choose from:
- Audio Door Access System. This allows the householder to hear the voice of any visitors. Unknown visitors identify themselves and their purpose. Only when trust is established, access is granted.
- Visual Door Access System. In this version, there’s a camera in the outdoor panel of the installation. This allows the householder to see the person requesting entry. It also allows for monitoring of the area outside the house at all times.
Door entry systems are particularly effective in for older people living alone. The entry system provides a buffer between the visiter and the housholder. There is, therefore, time to think about opening the door, and access can always be refused.
Door Entry Systems for Businesses in Essex
Businesses can also benefit from door entry systems, especially if they don’t operate a reception desk. The potential for tailgating, or accessing the building under a false identity makes the business vulnerable. The installation of a door access system puts in place a process of identification, which allows every employee the option to allow, or refuse entry to visitors.
