As the year progresses, we’re hearing of more and more local businesses opening up, and it’s great to hear! We’d love to be able to support your business with a security contract tailor-made to suit both your needs and your budget.

First things first, install an alarm system and consider alarm response as a security service.

Once you’ve acquired your business premises, the first thing you’ll need to do is get a trusted and reliable alarm system in place. Empty buildings are prime targets for squatters and vandalism, and this would be a very negative and costly start to your enterprise.

There are 3 main ways an alarm response can protect your business.

  • Once your system is set up, you can install visible signs to warn potential intruders that an alarm system is in place, and acts as an initial deterrent.
  • When triggered, the audible alarms can scare off potential intruders, preventing further damage and theft.
  • Many alarm systems have key features such as text messaging alerts and CCTV links, allowing you to act quickly to a potential break-in and get on site. We can respond to these alerts.


Simply put, we can go to any site or location, nationwide, and confront and remove any unauthorised person(s), report criminal damage and theft, and contact the local authorities to report the incident.

Consider our keyholding service

If we are trusted with your Alarm Response service, it's logical we'd already been keyholders too. As secondary keyholders, we're able to let the local authorities onto the premises to further investigate should an alarm be triggered at your site.

Think about Manned Guarding...

If you have a large area of land, it would be wise to consider our manned guarding service.

Manned guarding is a highly effective way of eliminating criminal damage and theft, making it one of the most proactive security measures that you can take against crime. It is a security service that involves placing security guards at your premises, usually out of hours but sometimes when staff are still present.

The manned guarding security service that Carter Security offers is much more than a security patrol of your premises. Our security guards are all trained to Security Industry Authority (SIA) standards and are fitted with body cameras for audible and CCTV footage, ensuring you have a professional security officer managing your property at all times.

For more information on how we can support your business with quality security, please don't hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team.

Alternatively, if you're looking to further your career within the security industry, please check the careers section on our website or email us an up to date copy of your C.V. We never subcontract security guards, choosing instead to invest in training and we work hard to support our staff. We look forward to meeting you.
