Temporary Security Systems

Businesses face varying risks at different stages of their operations. You may require a temporary security system if your property or site is empty for a short period of time, or at periods of downtime.

Cerberus is one of few leading UK security experts who offer short-term protection, to guard your properties, premises and assets when you need it most.

  • Perhaps your organisation is undergoing a critical phase and requires heightened security to safeguard against intruders.
  • You might have a property that is vacant in the short-term, and need to defend against vandals, squatters and trespassers.
  • In some cases, our clients are using a new locality on a short-term basis, and want to offer their personnel the same level of protection, as they would expect on a permanent site.

In any circumstance, the Cerberus team is on hand to offer a vast range of temporary security options such as temporary commercial CCTV to protect your premises over the required period.

The need for Temporary Security Systems

Often, a client requires increased security for a vacant property – which is exposed to illegal entry when not guarded. There are multiple reasons criminals might target an empty premise:

  • Fly-tipping
  • Criminal damage
  • Stripping pipework and valuable assets
  • Opportunist theft
  • Squatters

The impact of such vulnerabilities can be extensive in terms of downtime, the costs of repairs, managing insurance claims, and the stress and working hours required to recover from the security breach.

It is, therefore, critical to put the right security measures in place, as identified by a thorough risk assessment process to highlight the most crucial points of exposure.

Our Temporary Security Systems

Some of the most popular Cerberus temporary security systems include:

Temporary CCTV Towers

Engineered to remain outside in all conditions, and fully independent of mains power or a hard-wired internet connection, inView CCTV towers are designed to be left unattended for long periods of time.

Tower units provide independent multipoint alarm coverage of large areas and are viewable and controllable remotely. High-capacity, rechargeable, sealed batteries and built-in solar panels will keep the unit fully functioning 24/7, with or without power, for an indefinite period. Cerberus also provides CCTV maintenance services.

Video Verified Alarm Systems

Ideal for vacant properties, sites and remote locations where power is not available. Battery operated, this system offers 24/7 detection and monitoring of specific locations.

When a wireless alarm is activated, it sends notification information to our alarm receiving centre. A dedicated security response, depending on the predefined protocol, will then be dispatched to investigate the activation. Emergency services will be notified where required.
