Bell Boxes : Cornerstone of security presence?

For generations, bell boxes has been symbolic of a security presence, and although the security industry has continued to innovate, this mainstay of the industry continues to provide an imposing presence.

In the winter months, there is a recognised spike in burglaries, often linked to the long nights providing an extended blanket of darkness for criminals to operate.  Making it even more pivotal that the property shows an obvious security presence, visible at night and at a distance, deterring any potential criminal interest.

Over recent years, visual security illustrations have developed to show more warning signs at eye level, motivated heavily by the data protection requirements around CCTV as much as warning off criminal attention.  These signs work well to a point in notifying the public of a security presence on at property, however, they have limited visibility in the dark and can often be missed altogether by would-be burglars if entering the property from a different point. 

Often the recommended use of an active bell box to the front and dummy bell boxes to the rear of the property can be an effective tool in highlighting overtly that a complete security presence is in place. The first objective is always to evade crime at a property by making it an unappealing target, with the reassurance of an active security system in place if the worse were to happen.

Securitatem Installations has a range of bell boxes supplied by security industry’s-leading suppliers. We are proud to provide a distinctive and effective security presence for the protection of our clients and their property.

+ Cost of burgulary

The real cost of burglary

Burglary comes at a high cost to those who fall victim to it, in the form of loss of belongings, damage, and emotional impact.

With 235,280 burglaries in 2021-22, burglary has the 7th highest crime rate per 1000 in the UK.

  • A burglary is carried out every 134 seconds in the UK
  • 3.9 people per 1,000 of the population experienced a burglary in 2021
  • 71% of burglaries are on domestic properties

The average cost of damage in incidents of domestic burglary in a dwelling with an entry has doubled since 2009/10, going from £654 to £1413 in 2019/20. With some seeing costs exceeding £5000.

66% of burglaries resulted in a loss to the resident. Items stolen included high-value physical goods such as jewellery, watches, and vehicles. However, the list of items also included more prominent personal belonging such as wallets containing bank cards, computers, and documents likely comprising personal data and the key to the property, potentially taken to return later.

Domestic burglaries have a high emotional impact on those who experience them with 84% stating they had been affected emotionally. Although each experiencing different levels of emotional response, those reported ranged from anger and shock to depression and anxiety, some even noted losing confidence, finding it difficult to sleep, and even experiencing panic attacks.

Why we build multifaceted security systems

A multifaceted security installation is the utilisation of several security systems in one property, building a robust and all-encompassing security presence.

Following our site survey, we may recommend the installation of CCTV, intruder alarm, and access control in conjunction with each other, and bespoke to your property’s needs. With every additional system, we look to reduce the opportunity for a successful security breach.

Where one system such as an alarm would emphasis sensors and boundary infringements, CCTV focuses on visual security and protection, and access control prioritises securing the parameter and restricting entry. Each system brings its own benefits and limitations, so a combination of two or three across your property, can create an optimum security presence.
