Where there is smoke...

Did you know that 3 out of 5 fire deaths happen in homes that either dont have a fire alarm system or that have one but that isn't working correctly! Don't you think that's tragic? According to curent statistics, as high as 38% of home fire deaths result from fires in which no smoke alarms are present. In the event of a fire in your home, you may have as little as 2 minutes to escape, which is why it's recommended that tested and working smoke alarms are fitted in each bedroom, hallway and landing, as well as on each level of your premises. That's where TomTec can help...

Someones Having A Windup!

At least we got a good bicep workout this week cranking these pole mounted cameras up and down for some maintenance work. Left this site with a fully operational CCTV system including fully functional dome and ANPR cameras. Speak to us to discuss any of your CCTV, Fire or Security needs.

Stay safe with Security Cameras

A security camera is the most effective way to catch and deter burglars. They not only scare them away, but if they go unnoticed, they will capture every move of a burglar if they are in sight, increasing the likelihood of catching them and providing substantial evidence to the police. With 63 percent of home burglaries taking place in homes that lack a basic security system, it is a worthwhile investment to avoid the worst-case scenario. Contact us to install a security camera today!

Better Safe than sorry

Did you know that one burglary is thought to occur every 106 seconds in the uk. Do you live in an area where there are high burglary statistics? It’s critical to invest in your home’s security to ensure that your home becomes less of a target. People that didn't have a basic security system were accounted for 63% of all burgularies. 60% of burgulars said they wouldn't try to burgle a house if there was an alarm. At TomTec we are trying to help people in Preston and the North West have a safer home.

Which system is best?

Here at Tomtec we reccomend Pyronix alarm and cctv systems, because "with Pyronix you're in control." With their remote access system your property security and remote monitoring is in the palm of your hand. Using the HomeControl 2.0 mobile app means you're Always Connected and Always Protected...
