The Protector Group is a time-tested, trustworthy, high integrity and value added service partner; installing and maintaining electronic security and safety systems to the strict requirements of our NSI Nacoss Gold accreditation. The National Security Inspectorate is the leading certification body for the security and fire protection sectors in the UK.
Our capability across innovative and integrated systems can cater for single line or bundled install, service and reactive maintenance of CCTV, intruder, fire, disabled refuge and access control systems. Additionally, The Protector Group provides specialist services such as high security and bespoke system design and enhanced video analytics – for example heat mapping customer foot flows through a retail environment, fogging devices that will reduce visibility in the event of a hold up, forensic marking, vehicle tracking or even panic rooms for executive homes and security drones!
We will assess your exact needs and recommend a physical system and/or working process that, wherever possible, will innovate whilst also integrating with your existing technology. Our objective is to strike a balance between risk and budget by introducing the best performing solution, to meet all needs and improve cost effectiveness of the security budget. To further improve cost effect, The Protector Group is able to structure a financial solution to suite most customers needs, with options including outright purchase, rental and lease rental.
Our nationwide team of security systems engineers will provide you with 24/7 support. They are well versed and qualified in over 30 years of security technology. So whether it’s servicing and maintenance of legacy systems or the installation of the latest, most innovative technologies, our engineers will be able to support your locations throughout the UK.
Our engineering team currently consists of over 30 directly employed personnel. Contingency recruitment is also an ever-present consideration in order that our clients are not let down by unforeseen circumstances. The Protector Group hopes that this illustrates our organisation as one willing to grow; while bolstering an already strong team is seen as proof of investment in the necessary resources that are required to achieve growth, while continuing to deliver the very best service.
The Protector Group head office incorporates a BS5979 Category 2 remote monitoring station, command & control center. This British Standard is a pre-requisite for most insurers and essential to achieving priority police response for monitored systems. Included in the requirements for achieving this standard is an air-lock verified entry system, contingency communication paths, independent air supply and independent power supplies – meaning that the 24/7 operational hub for our business will continue to operate in all eventualities even through local air contamination, communication failure or power outage.
While many electronic security systems providers fail to meet the monitoring certifications by using simple and unreliable technology to monitor their electronic systems, others may outsource the requirement to third-party providers. The Protector Group recognise that the remote monitoring of electronic systems, the command and the control of 24/7 operations is the most vulnerable element for the provision of a robust security service and the point at which the security solution is most likely to ‘fall-down’.
The Protector Group is therefore pleased to be able to offer this service element in-house. Having our own 5979:2010 Category 2 monitoring station means that in the event of your location being compromised our own control room operatives, with a thorough understanding of our equipment design procedures, our operating processes and ultimately of your site too – via shared internal knowledge, are fully prepared to react appropriately.
The subsequent escalation process can include challenging the intrusion in real time with live audio announcements, dispatching one of our SIA ACS mobile response services or calling the emergency services for a priority police response.
