What makes Select Security Innovative?

10 facts about Select

1.  Select can install security systems anywhere, even in remote rural locations - we need no mains power (we use solar), phone lines or internet to get systems up and running. We have off-road vehicles to get to the places other security companies can't reach. 

2.  Select was established in 2010 and within the last three years the firm has nearly doubled in size. We are continuing to expand and have plans to extend the business across the whole of the UK in the next five years.

3. Members of our team have worked on installing security systems in the Netherlands, France, Portugal, Dubai and Cyprus.

4.  We don't just install security systems - we can fully risk-assess sites, design and maintain fire, intruder, automation and CCTV systems. We can install fire and intruder alarms wirelessly to the latest British Standards.

5.  One of our largest industrial installations was a huge, 9-metre long, automatic sliding gate at a factory complex.

6. Select founder and managing director, Leon Window,  has appeared on TV and in various newspapers and magazines talking about stolen quad bikes and how they can be recovered using Select's tracking systems.

7. Select installed Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) systems at 10 of the UK's busiest train stations including Edinburgh, Leeds and London Piccadilly.

8. The most frequently stolen rural items, according to our clients, are quad bikes, diesel and farm machinery.

9.  Select is accredited by the SSAIB - the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board - to fit monitored police response intruder alarms to the highest standards. Select is also fully health and safety compliant and accredited by the UK Government's Acclaim and Constructionline schemes. We are also accredited by Investors In People - we invest in our employees' training and well-being at all levels.

10.  Select carries out talks on rural crime prevention on behalf of the Welsh Government.

And finally... spreading the goodwill

Select sponsors several grassroots sports teams, donates services and discounted systems to charities and helps donate expertise and discounted systems to local community projects. It's good to give.
