About Us

We're UK fire and security experts with over 200 combined years experience in installation and maintenance, but that's not all we are...

Our Story

Born out of huge demand for bespoke CCTV service, we we’re founded by Jason Begg in 2019 after being approached to provide a service that no one else could. Since then, we’ve expanded to offer a full-service fire and security solution and are fully industry accredited and trusted by some of the biggest businesses in the UK.

We’ve kept our philosophy since day one, even today we pride ourselves on providing a bespoke solution for our clients, not ‘out of the box’ fixes.

Out of the Blocks
An electrician by trade, our founder Jason was already adept at problem solving and providing solutions not systems. In 2019, Jason was asked to find a solution for Greyhound Racing tracks that involved combining multiple elements of security systems and custom API integration.

No other CCTV provider could meet the requirements of The Racing Partnership. That's just what we do, we take your problems, and we solve them.

At current, we have installed and maintained the same system in 80% of UK Greyhound Racing tracks.

ASOS
Around the same time as our with with TRP we won a tender for XPO to fit the ASOS facilities across Europe with thermal screening to protect the staff during the Covid outbreak.

We pre-programmed 50 packages for 50 sites across the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, including instructions to install in 5 different languages.

ASOS Part Two
After a job well done for ASOS and XPO in April, we were asked to support their UK facilities with Density Control to stop the spread of Covid-19 in their team (in less than ten days).

We took note of their requirements, and provided a solution with bespoke firmware combining multiple different products from Hikvision. Our solution monitored traffic in common areas and displayed capacity numbers to the team.

Post installation we heard that ASOS were struggling with the accuracy levels of the system due to the sheer volume of staff in the facilities. We raised this with Hikvision, who built a bespoke firmware development and together with the manufacturer we installed a system fix that kept the solution accurate over the entire working day with their 5,000 staff. All as part of the original quote, fixing their issue free of charge.

Ladbrokes
Our second national brand came on board at the end of 2020. After impressing the now Head of Group Health & Safety with the P50 Fire Extinguisher at their factory in Norwich, we rolled out the revolutionary Fire Extinguishers in over 250 stores.

We swapped 8,038 traditional extinguishers for 3,900 P50's, saving the bookmaker hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Excitingly, we rolled out the P50 for Ladbrookes faster than anything they have ever rolled out, and despite the lockdown we installed the P50s nationwide in less than 30 weeks.
