Securing Vulnerable Vacant Building on A34 Road.

PIDS Unit for site security

With the festive season bringing a spike in squatting and looting threats, a top UK security firm partnered with Propertysec to safeguard an abandoned Starbucks on A34. Leveraging the latest in surveillance technology, Propertysec swiftly installed Sentinel MK1 PID units featuring advanced Reconeyez surveillance systems. This strategic move guaranteed uninterrupted, real-time monitoring and a seamless setup. The outcome was significant: bolstered security at the site, reassurance for the client and a festive season without any squatting or looting incidents.
