Rise in Demand for Gate Automation Essex

Whenever we see a spike in demand for automatic gates across a particular region, we know that it’s likely to be due to worrying crime figures. That’s just what’s happen in Essex recently. In September of this year, figures published by the Home Office showed that of 7,439 burglaries reported across the county, 81% of them were closed without any outcome.

Essex Police acknowledged the problem, and are available to offer advice to families on how to secure their home, but the problem stems from their limited resources. Government spokesperson Yvette Cooper said “Police forces are under immense pressure with rising serious and violent crime and changing patterns of crime alongside cuts in the numbers of officers and PCSOs.”

1st Choice Security Systems Provide Peace of Mind

No wonder, then, that we’ve received a record number of calls from Essex households asking us to recommend a security system that will safeguard premises, protect vulnerable members of the family, and provide peace of mind – especially during the winter when it gets dark so early. In the majority of cases, we suggest that families consider gate automation to secure their homes.

Gate Automation Essex for Peace of Mind

Automatic gates, also known as security gates, not only provide an extra layer of security for your home, they also send out a very clear message to opportunistic burglars that you take security seriously and have taken precautions to defend your home against crime. ˆ
