Living in Glossop I know that homes get burgled nearby and that burglars often re-offend, I also know that many places that do have an burglar break in and steal things has little or no security systems to protect that home. Break-ins happen in Glossop and the burglar can often leave without leaving enough evidence to be identified and caught, leaving them to re-offend.
Just because it isn’t my home that has been burgled, I can still be annoyed that people don’t have sufficient systems in place to help identify and catch burglars and other intruders. Should somebody in Glossop have an alarm system, it is often just an audible only alarm that scares off the would-be thief without identifying them.
There are many faces of Glossop, some that you see and some that hide away, but I consider all of the faces when I think of my home security or even office security. There’s a reason for every home or office in Glossop to need and ideally want security systems.

A lot of home security systems have Passive Infra Red (PIR) detectors installed around the home to detect movement in the house.

Buxton is a lovely spa town in rural England, gateway to the Peak District, home of Buxton Water and, unsurprisingly, Buxton Opera House.

Security systems often include some form of CCTV camera system; classic versions of the type of security would have the video footage sent to a recording device and a bank of screens to view the picture over in real time. Modern systems have the option to utilise a wireless CCTV camera system that can transmit your security footage to anywhere with internet connectivity, allowing you to view your secure property from your computer or mobile device.

“Be careful what you post on social media” doesn’t just apply to saying something offensive; it could end in your home being burgled!
The world of social media is a vast one, well past sharing images with one another, social media is often used to track your whereabouts and your scheduled plans; great for keeping up with your friends but not so great for the security of your home.
People often ask what security system they should have installed to protect their home or business. Should they get a basic motion sensor setup to track if somebody is in the room and activate the alarm system if it is armed, or should they go for something more advanced such as window vibration sensors?
