We offer a fully comprehensive security and fire protection system covering everything you’re likely to need
Essex Security Services are one of the leading intruder alarm installers in the South East, trading for over 30 years and recognised by all major insurance companies.
Our Intruder Alarm installations are individually designed to suit your specific requirements or those of your insurer covering domestic, commercial and industrial needs.
Clients benefit from the high quality workmanship and state of the art technology that Essex Security Services will provide. Intruder alarms are designed to be flexible and easy to operate in all situations.
Our systems are installed to relevant European Standards with policed response via our dedicated Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) if required.
Protecting your business and staff is a top priority. Closed Circuit Television surveillance is no longer a luxury – for many businesses it is essential, whether as a deterrent or as a record of evidence.
Today’s CCTV digital technology is highly sophisticated. Essex Security Services install and maintain CCTV systems of all sizes, from a single camera up to large multiple camera systems operated remotely with connection from alternative locations.
We also provide specialist services such as car number-plate recognition, covert systems and full telemetry operations with pan, tilt and zoom controls. Essex Security Services are well positioned to consult on, and install, full I.P. CCTV systems both small and large.
Our systems protect shops, warehouse, offices, hospitals, schools, colleges and many other large commercial and residential sites. Why not ask what we can do for your business?

Fire regulations over the past few years have changed dramatically with the introduction of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (which came into force in October 2006) the legislation placed a mandatory duty of care on the person responsible for the running of a business, Office, factory or any other non- residential premises to ensure that a risk assesment is carried out and where required the fire alarm installation and maintenance is carried out by a competent person or company.
Here at ESS we have BFPSA/FIA certificated technicians directly employed by us to ensure that all of the fire alarm work undertaken is fully in accordance with all of the current British and European standards (BS5839 part 1 + A2 2008, part 6 2004 and EN54) and along with our experienced design team we can advise your business or organisation on the various types of fire alarm equipment that best suits your requirements.
As Suppliers and Installers of brands such as Honeywell, Advanced Electronics, C – Tec and Apollo to name but a few, you are assured of the very best quality for your Fire Alarm Solution.
Our after care service can include standard or fully comprehensive maintenance contracts with access to our dedicated 24 hour emergency response team operating 365 days a year and covering all of our systems, new or existing at very competitive rates.
Do you need to restrict access to your property and prevent unauthorised entry? Perhaps you wish to ensure that employees can only enter the building during working hours?
At Essex Security Services we have been installing access control systems for over 30 years – from properties with a single point of entry to large sites such as office blocks, schools, colleges, hospitals and factories.
Our state-of-the-art technology enables you to control who comes and goes using digital keypads, proximity readers or swipe card readers. We also install and maintain audio and video door entry systems. Access Control systems can be fully integrated with CCTV and Intruder Alarms, offering ease of management and comprehensive protection.
Door Entry Systems
Would you like the ability to communicate with persons before they enter your premises? Perhaps you’d like to see them, to ensure they are who they say they are before they have the chance to cost you and your business money?
Door Entry Systems provide a cost-effective means of doing just that. With a choice of audio or video entry systems and electronic locks to suit virtually any type of installation, Essex Security Services can supply a system that meets your needs.
We can also integrate Door Entry Systems with comprehensive Access Control solutions allowing you to provide your staff with an electronic and traceable means of entering the building and an easy means of identifying where they were and when.
At Essex Security Services we install Patient, Disabled and Staff Attack Call Systems for a number of private and public healthcare clients and frequently in conjunction with other security systems.
These integrate with computer systems allowing you to ensure that the call is dealt with as efficiently as possible.
Entirely free from complication in use, the call system meets all current guidelines and is proven within the industry.
As with our other disciplines, you can get a free quotation.
Disabled Refuge and Emergency Telephone Systems
For most people, a simple instruction like “please leave the building by the nearest available exit” can be acted upon quickly and easily. But for wheelchair users, the disabled and infirm, this isn’t always the case.
Current Building Regulations recognise this and insist all new non-domestic buildings with more than one storey provide ‘refuge’ areas – relatively safe places where people who cannot easily use fire escapes and evacuation lifts can call for assistance and wait until help arrives.
Simple, effective two-way communication in these areas is essential, firstly to assist rescue teams in determining where assistance is required and secondly to reassure people help is on the way.
Communication systems in refuge areas are known as Emergency Voice Communication (EVC) Systems. E.S.S. install equipment that is suitable for use in all types of EVC application – be it a disabled refuge, fire telephone or stadium marshalling system.
Incredibly easy to use and offering true duplex speech, our systems meet and exceed the requirements of standards such as BS 5839 part 9 in all areas and are hugely cost-effective.
In accordance with the requirements of BS5266, emergency lighting systems should be periodically tested and inspected to ensure that all luminaires function according to the design, lighting levels, duration and are positioned (including signage) correctly for use in “power-loss situations”.
ESS offer a comprehensive testing and assessment service to include the following:
- Battery discharge test
- Lumen level output assessment
- Survey to assess adequate coverage
- Compatibility with BS requirements
- Client training to carry out interim testing
Having carried out testing, the results are presented in a high quality report which includes the following documentation:
- Asset Register (inventory of all items tested, together with locations)
- Test Data (results of tests carried out on all luminaires)
- Detailed instructions to client regarding interim testing requirements
- Log Book
We can also keep your building up to date with all of its necessary signage at the same time in accordance with The Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996.
