Home Security Cameras & CCTV Systems

Should I install CCTV system in my home? CCTV has become increasingly common in domestic properties in recent years and has always been a common security feature of residential and commercial properties. This increase has been largely down to the fall in price of CCTV, its availability on the market, and, more simply, because they have become much easier to use and install.

When purchasing CCTV for your home it is important to consider the variations in ranges and models. Consider where you will be positioning your CCTV, how it will be monitored, how it will be powered, and what key user-features you will need.

Security Lighting

Did you know that burglaries spike by a third when the clocks go back? Installing outdoor security lighting aroud your home will help deter thieves away from your property and make your home feel more safe and secure. Security lighting can be installed in any area of your property: on your drive, in an alleyway, in your garden, on a shed or in greenhouse, or in a woodland if you have one.

Outdoor Security Lighting

There is a choice of security lighting available to you. You can choose from motion sensor lighting, which will only come on when movement is detected in a defined space, or floodlighting, which is designed to illuminate a large area. You can then choose between traditional halogen lighting, LED or solar-powerd lighting.



Floodlighting is high output lighting that is designed to illumibate a large area like a backyard or garden. Ask about our range of floodlighting from leading brands likes Ansell, Luceco, Osram, JCC, KSR and other manufactuers with the choice of finish and colour temperature to suit your outdoor space.

PIR home security lighting

PIR Lighting

PIR Lighting detects motion in a defined space using passive infrared sensors (PIR). PIR Lighting is useful in high footfall areas of your home like driveways, passageways, decking or garden and can be an effective security measure as well as a decorative feature of your living spaces.

Solar-Powered Lighting

Solar lighting can be used for both decorative and security purposes and provides a lower cost alternative to other lighting solutions. Solar-powered lighting use photovoltaic cells to convert natural light into power. Using solar lighting along entrance ways in your property can ensure that these routes are well-lit in at night time and through winter months when daylight is shorter.
