It isn’t uncommon to drive past houses with gates to the entrance of their properties these days and it is becoming more and more popular for homeowners to invest in automatic gates. People’s reasons for purchasing these gates will differ, yet overall, they are seen as a great addition to the exterior of a residential property.

An automatic gate is a very appealing feature for homeowners across the UK and if you have been considering investing in some automatic gates yourself you might be curious about the benefits of these gates. EA Group has put together a list of these benefits to help you decide whether an automatic gate is for you.

Privacy

Privacy is important for all homeowners, especially if you have a family. Installing a suitable automatic gate system is one of the best ways to protect yours and your family’s privacy from passersby. By having a gate to your property you will be able to keep your children, as well as any pets, safe inside and away from anyone passing the property.

Security

Probably the most obvious benefit of installing an automatic gate is added security. The gate alone will deter thieves and vandals from your residential properties. With an automatic gate, you can also guard your property incredibly easily, usually at the switch of the remote. Thanks to this entrance access solution, you can always control who enters and exits your property. With such a large variety of automatic gates to choose from now, you can get a gate in any shape, size, and height to make sure your home more secure.

Convenience

Thankfully, automatic gates have made getting into a gated property much easier. You don’t have to physically get out of your car and open the gate in order to get into your home. It is so much more convenient, especially if you are in a rush or if it is raining. It is also convenient if you forget to close the gate behind you, close it from the comfort of your home instead.

Aesthetically pleasing

Of course, these gates are also very aesthetically pleasing. The whole picture of your house will change with the addition of an automatic gate. You can now get them in such a wide range of design options too, so you can get the protection you need with the look you want. It isn’t uncommon for people to opt for bespoke automatic gate systems so that they can ensure it complements the rest of their property’s landscaping and architecture.

Cost-effective

Installing an automatic gate for your home is actually a cost-effective investment and solution that may even save you money in the long run. You may be able to get a discount on your property insurance as providers will notice the added protection you have installed at your home. Automatic gates usually increase the property value of a home too and they can make it easier to sell.

Currently, we are living in a world that is fast-paced and has many modern amenities, thanks to constantly advancing technology. Among the vast range of security products on the market today, intercoms are often forgotten even though they provide a simple low-cost access solution. They are an invaluable security measure for many different types of buildings, both commercial and residential.

Due to the many benefits of the intercom system, more people are starting to consider installing them at both residential and business properties. Depending on your needs and budget, you can install a wired intercom system or a wireless one, both of which are capable of fulfilling your requirements. Whichever system you choose, when installing an intercom device you will be getting more than the money’s worth. To help you understand just how good these systems are EA Group have put together a list of the advantages of using them.

Enhanced security

When you install an intercom system you automatically take the security of your property to the next level. Detection and verification of guests, whether they are of the welcome or unwanted variety, is imperative. It can be incredibly dangerous when you answer the door to a stranger and having an intercom system will allow you to speak to the visitor before breaking your security barrier. You can then decide whether you want to open the door or not which can prevent dangerous incidents of forced entry from people that you don’t know.

Improved communication

Traditionally, intercom systems have been used to easily communicate with people inside buildings. Whether they are used in a block of flats or to get into a business property they allow you to communicate with your visitor before they enter the building. Being a two-way communication device, intercoms don’t only allow you to speak to the person trying to get into your property but, it also allows them to speak back to you too.

Deters crime

When you have an intercom system, it requires anyone who wants to enter a building to identify themselves. You will find that this instantly deters criminals or unauthorised people from attempting to enter your property, which in turn, will hopefully make it a much safer place.

Cheaper insurance

It is becoming more and more difficult to find cheap home/building insurance cover. Once you have installed a professional intercom system you may find that you can get a better deal. Some insurance providers recognise the importance of this added security barrier and most of them would be willing to lower your annual premiums.

Restricts access

Lots of people don’t think about using an intercom system for restricting access, especially in commercial properties, but it works really well. Key or card security systems have their vulnerabilities, the main one being that the key/card can get lost or stolen. Using an intercom system instead, where visual or verbal identification can be made, will help keep the area safe and secure from anyone who isn’t authorised for access.

Investing in an intercom system

Whether you are interested in a wired intercom system for your office, or a wireless intercom system for your home, EA Group will be able to assist you. We specialise in intercom and access control systems for both home and business properties and can tailor the services to meet your individual requirements.

CCTVSecurity is incredibly important, no matter what industry you work in. Whether you have a huge business that requires a large multi-storey property or a small independent business with one office, your security solutions should never be overlooked.

Many companies turn to commercial CCTV systems as their security solution. Reliable security cameras now play a key role in monitoring security both inside and around buildings and they are a very popular choice. Overall, there are many different reasons to consider a CCTV system for your business and EA Group have laid out their key benefits below.

Powerful crime deterrent

One of the biggest benefits of CCTV systems for businesses is that they are a deterrent for crime. The sight of a CCTV camera is usually enough to scare anyone carrying out illegal activities away from your property, it infers an air of danger and the presence of the law. Ensure that your cameras are in a visible place and also consider putting up warnings that CCTV is in operation and you’re sure to stop any criminal before they attempt anything.

Monitors activity

CCTV systems are able to keep track of what is happening in your establishment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Having the ability to monitor the activity of both workers and visitors at your business, this allows you to be completely in control and fully aware of what is going on under your roof at all times.

 

Gives you peace of mind

Knowing that you have a system watching over your premises at all times gives you peace of mind that it is being protected from criminals, even if you are out of the office. Having a high-quality CCTV system can reduce your stress outside of work and allow you to really relax knowing that you have an effective security system in place.

Increases staff safety

As well as keeping your building safe and giving you peace of mind, your CCTV can also keep your staff safe and help them feel secure. Keeping your staff protected whilst at work should be of the utmost importance to you. No matter whether you have solo night workers you want to feel safe or you just want to be able to keep an eye on all of your staff – CCTV is the way to do it. This system is a great way to make your premises a safe work environment for everyone.

Provides evidence

In the unfortunate event that a crime does occur at your premises having a CCTV system can help you piece together exactly what happened, helping to hopefully solve the crime. It may even be able to catch the criminals in the act. The evidence that your CCTV can supply will be incredibly beneficial in police investigations.

Cost-effective solution

CCTV systems are one of the most cost-effective solutions when it comes to security. They are a lot less costly than hiring a full-time security officer for the premises and they also cover a lot more ground than one security officer can. There is now such a wide range of security cameras available on the market, along with supporting equipment to meet all of your technical and environmental requirements.

Installing a CCTV system

There really aren’t any downsides to installing CCTV systems into your business premises and there is no denying that once you are aware of the benefits, you will want to arrange an installation service as soon as possible.

If you are looking for an experienced access control company in the UK that will be able to assist you with your CCTV system, as well as any additional security systems and access control systems, then please don’t hesitate to contact the EA Group. We have a wealth of experience in designing commercial CCTV systems, providing clients with everything from high-definition CCTV cameras and infrared security cameras to pan tilt zoom cameras and IP and networked digital security cameras.

The Silverstone Experience is a new interactive experience at the Silverstone track in Northampshire that opened on the 25th of October 2019, it’s sure to be a hit with anyone obsessed with the sport.

1_The-Silverstone-Experience

Visitors will learn about the science behind the modern-day sport, as well as seeing historic cars and bikes such as Barry Sheene’s 1979 Suzuki and Nigel Mansell’s 1992 British Grand Prix-winning Williams.
Other highlights include a valuable collection of BRDC gold stars won by Formula 1 champion James Hunt and a 1992 Grand Prix signing-on sheet featuring the signatures of Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher, Mansell, and Damon Hill. There is a replica car from the very first British Grand Prix (yes, you can sit in it), cars, bikes and objects that have played a huge part in the circuit’s history, and even memorabilia such as helmets belonging to Michael Schumacher and Damon Hill.

The experience is a project that’s been seven years in the making and has already seen support from the likes of Prince Harry, Sir Jackie Stewart, Formula 1 engineer Ross Brawn and commentator Murray Walker.

The charity behind the initiative, Silverstone Heritage Ltd, was awarded a grant of £9.1million by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and says it’s aiming to ‘inspire the next generation of engineers with the hands-on family attraction’. There will also be plenty of archive footage and a special-effects cinema showing the ‘Ultimate Lap of Silverstone’ to bring the whole experience to life for visitors, as well as a Heritage Track Trail.

Sally Reynolds, CEO of Silverstone Heritage Ltd, said: “Creating a home to tell the historic story of Silverstone was first discussed by the BRDC as long ago as 1971, so I am immensely proud to see this seven-year-long project come to fruition. You can find out more on the official Silverstone Experience website.

Security continues to be a growing concern for businesses of all industries, ensuring that your employees, equipment and information remain safe is always a top priority. Businesses need to have adequate protection systems in place in order to make sure that all threats are deterred whether that is physically or technologically.

In the past, the majority of businesses used traditional methods as security solutions such as lock and key doors and security guards. However, there are new advanced safety innovations available that help businesses adapt and improve their security. One of the best security solutions available is an access control system. Below we will tell you everything you need to know about these systems and why your business should have one. 

What is an access control system?

This system is an electronic system that allows a person, with proper clearance, to access to a certain area of your building. These systems can involve key cards, pin codes, biometric scanners, alarms and video surveillance systems. They are an all-round system that can be tailored specifically to your business needs. 

What are the benefits?

  • Monitoring and reporting

Having an access control system in your business property will enable you to take note of every person who enters and exits your building each day. It will also record other important details such as their identity, occupation, role in the business, the reason for entry and what hours they entered and left the premises. 

This information can be valuable to business owners or managers if a potential issue, such as stolen office supplies or a data breach, occurs on a specific day or time. Using the access control system they can easily find out who was inside buildings or rooms when the issues occurred.

  • Increased safety

Threats to businesses are endless and you never know what kind of people will want access to your assets, data and even employees. One of the biggest threats is unauthorised entry. To avoid this, there needs to be a controlled security system in place that will help you maintain protection by granting necessary site access. 

As well as protecting the whole building, an access control system can also protect specific areas and rooms. This system allows you to grant approved employees access to designated areas. It is perfect for larger businesses with various offices that don’t require access by all employees. 

  • Cost-effective 

Installing an access control system may seem expensive to start with but we can assure you that it is a cost-effective solution. For example, when you have keyless entry and someone loses their key card it is much easier to replace this and reprogram the system than it is to change the entire building’s locks. 

An access control system also eliminates the need of having to print and photocopy ID cards as all of this information can be available electronically. This doesn’t only save you money but also a lot of time, it is friendly on the environment too. Of course, this system is also a lot cheaper than having a large security team yet it still provides you with the protection you require. 

How do I install an access control system?

If you think that this system is the best security solution for your business then you will need to work with one of the best access control companies in the UK to ensure that all of your needs and requirements are met. Here at EA Group we specialise in access control systems and have assisted many different businesses with their systems.

When you choose to work with us to develop your business access control system, we will ensure that it is fully tailored and suitable for your application. Whether you are simply looking for an employee access control system or you would like a complete all-round system that can monitor your buildings facilities or control how and when occupants interact with the equipment within, then we can assist you today.

Tall Revolving Door by EA Group installed within the London financial district

When you invest in a business property the type of doors you have is probably quite low down on your list of importance. However, if you are considering refurbishing the building then the entrance shouldn’t be overlooked. With so many different options available in this day and age you can be left spoilt for choice. 

One of the most popular choices is revolving doors. This type of door can be traced back to 1888 and the very first wooden revolving door was installed at a Times Square restaurant back in 1899. Since this time they have continued to be seen at the entrance of shopping centres, hospitals, museums and many other buildings. 

If you’re considering this type of door for your building, the EA Group have put together some of the very important benefits for you to take into account. Keep reading to see exactly what revolving doors can add to your business. 

Reduced heating costs 

In business, anything you can do to save money is worth considering. Typical standard manual doors allow significant amounts of air to escape from the building every time some enters or exits, this is due to the large opening that they create. Not to mention the constant draft you receive from these doors. 

Revolving doors, however, remain mostly sealed and create much smaller gaps for the air to escape through. As a result of simply installing new doors, warm air in winter months, as well as air-conditioned air in the summer, can remain inside the building. 

Improve access 

When people are entering or exiting a building with manual doors they must take it in turns and filter in slowly which often creates a traffic jam causing people to get impatient. Thankfully, revolving doors have provided a solution to this issue. They allow for a constant stream of people both entering and exiting the building. 

Revolving doors also come in lots of different sizes and models, for example, you can get automatic revolving doors with bigger sections which allow for disabled access as well as standard access. This prevents you from needing someone to monitor the entrance to open the doors when required. 

Creates a good first impression 

Along with your building front, your door is the first thing that people see when they enter your business for the first time. When it comes to running a successful business, making a good first impression is vital. Revolving doors are associated with power and wealth, they are often found at the entrance of large corporations or big franchises. 

By installing revolving doors, you too can create this impression for your business and for anyone who visits your property. You can always rely on something as simply as a revolving door to enhance the appearance of any commercial building. Some revolving doors can also be customised with colour, posters and more marketing assets, enabling them to act as brand ambassadors to anyone who walks in.

Investing in a revolving door 

Overall there really isn’t a downside it investing in revolving doors. Like all other aspects of refurbishment, there will be an upfront payment to install but over time you will reap the benefits and make this money back. Whether you opt for a simple manual revolving door or more a complex automatic revolving door you will have made a smart investment. 

If you think that revolving doors seem like the best solution for your business property then please get in touch with EA Group. We are reliable experienced revolving door suppliers and can assist you with the rotating door you are interested in. With many years of experience behind us, our expert team can assist you with every aspect of this part of the refurbishment from the design right through to revolving door installation.
