Fitting Effective Residential Security Gate Systems in Bedfordshire

When a client asks us to fit residential security gates, the 1st Choice team will always ask if they’ve had to deal with a security issue recently. It might be an intruder, trespassers, or scammers going from door-to-door in the neighbourhood. Understanding clients’ security concerns helps us to create bespoke residential security gate systems in Bedfordshire which address specific problems.

What are Residential Security Gate Systems?

A ‘system’ is an interconnecting network of components that work together to achieve a desired solution. And that’s exactly what we do with our security gate systems. We start with the gate itself, and then integrate the features that are required to keep your family safe. Once complete, you should feel peace of mind that your property is protected, and looks good, too!

Free Security Audit From 1st Choice Security Systems

The 1st Choice team are all trained security engineers. Prior to fitting residential security gate systems for Bedfordshire clients, therefore, we offer a free security audit. This allows us to review existing security devices, and pinpoint any security vulnerabilities in the house and garden. Once we have a clear idea of how your property needs protecting, we make a series of recommendations for residential gate installation.

Security Gates Don’t Have to look Like a Fortress

One of the major advantages of having a security gate system fitted is that your gate doesn’t need to look like a fortification. Our clients have the choice of steel, wood, wrought iron, or aluminium gates, and they can be customised to match the aesthetic of your home’s exterior. The majority of our residential security installations look decorative, whilst also serving as a ‘first line of defence’.

Gates With Integrated Security Systems

There are a number of ways in which your residential driveway gates secure your property effectively:

  • Gates Act as a Deterrent. Most UK police forces agree that the presence of driveway gates is an effective deterrent to opportunist burglars. The gates demonstrate a security awareness that will make them think twice.
  • Residential CCTV. If you’re worried about professional criminals planning to attempt entry, carefully positioned CCTV cameras will prove a powerful deterrent as footage can be used as evidence in criminal prosecutions.
  • Door Entry System. This simple security device is extremely effective at keeping doorstep scammers at bay. Anyone wishing to gain entry will need to buzz the door entry system to be let in. An intercom, or video allows you to identify the visitor before opening the gate.
  • Visible Alarm System. Installing an intruder alarm that’s easy to spot from the driveway adds to your arsenal of security devices. One that can be mounted on the front of the property, with a flashing blue light, is an excellent way to demotivate intruders.
