We were recently contacted by a customer in Southend, Essex following a burglary at a neighbouring property.

Southend-on-Sea, commonly referred to as Southend, is a coastal town and borough in Essex, England.

Crime rates in Southend-on-Sea can vary based on the type of crime, the specific area within the town, and the time considered. Here are some general points about crime in Southend-on-Sea, based on available data and trends:

Crime Levels: Southend-on-Sea, like many urban areas, experiences a range of criminal activities. Overall, crime rates may be higher than in more rural areas but can vary significantly within different parts of the town.

Common Crimes: The most common types of crime include anti-social behavior, violent crime, criminal damage, theft, and drug-related offenses.

Residential and commercial properties in Southend occasionally fall victim to burglaries and theft.

We installed a high-definition CCTV system including four 8MP cameras and a high quality network video recorder.

As the customers worked during the day commuting to London the customers required the ability to view the CCTV system remotely and opted for technology that enabled them to be notified if someone was on the property.

With inbuilt 2-way audio capabilities the smart phone application we supplied allowed the customers to listen in to their home and also communicate via the 2 way audio technology.

Installing a CCTV system at home offers numerous benefits that enhance security, convenience, and peace of mind. Here are some of the key advantages:

Evidence Collection

  2. Insurance Claims: High-quality video evidence can support insurance claims making a claims process smoother.
