When you think of CCTV security you probably make certain assumptions – predominantly that it is present to capture wrong-doing. This is where the applications of CCTV are limited. Today’s CCTV cameras are increasingly sophisticated and can be used both inside and outside your property, as well as part of an integrated security system.


In reality, the functionality and technological capability of a CCTV system are now such that a business can use it not only as a deterrent for potential intruders but also for example to:

• Enforce health and safety practices
• Establish better working practices
• Managing activity on large or multiple sites
• Monitor car parks and visitor experience
• Capture evidence for instances of injury claims
• Monitor staff absences
• Covert observation for highly sensitive or high-value areas
• Cash register integration
• Queue management

Our Commitment

Would you purchase a car without test driving it to see what you could expect? Heavy investment in your CCTV security is a decision which also requires careful consideration.

You will want all of your expectations to be managed – we take the time to make sure you are fully informed, demonstrating the functionality of equipment and what you can expect from it. Often the recorded images from many CCTV cameras are far lower than the quality of those appearing on monitors. We are so sure of the quality of our recorded images, we are proud to give you a live demonstration before you buy.


Whatever your business requirement, Amax Fire and Security can provide the solution. We work closely with you to meet your requests – from the equipment you will require, installation and maintenance through to how to manage the images captured – we are here to support all your CCTV security needs.

As a business owner or manager, you will be concerned about the security of your premises, and are only too aware of the consequences of intrusion or criminal damage. You will want to avoid the disruption that any criminal activity has on your business – physical damage and time lost hits your profits, as well as unnerving your staff. Our monitored intruder alarms can help avoid these problems, and are one of the most cost-effective security solutions for your commercial premises. We will arrange to carry out a complimentary security audit of your property before recommending the right system for you.

Monitored Alarms

Many commercial insurance companies will require you to have an intruder alarm linked to a third party monitoring station. Monitoring stations operate 24 hours a day 365 days a year. The systems often requested by insurers are Redcare, Redcare GSM and Dualcom. Amax are able to install all of these monitored systems as required, dependent on whether a telephone line or radio network will suit your premises best.

Key holders, police and the fire service are all contacted and notified of incidents whilst the building is un-attended.

The systems Amax Fire and Security supply, install and maintain, will keep your buildings, staff and assets secure. Whatever your business size, we have a solution to suit your needs. These may be stand alone systems or fully integrated with your other security solutions such as intruder alarms or CCTV security.

You, like other businesses, may be experiencing issues with tail-gating – when an employee will follow another through an entry point. This leads to a huge array of security issues from unauthorised personnel, to being unable to monitor if an employee is on or off-site in the event of an emergency, or for time monitoring purposes. Amax Fire and Security uses specific biometrics to prevent these issues.

Fingerprint Scanner and Biometric Security

click to read more
Biometric security is used to authenticate the identity of a person based on physiological or behavioural characteristics. The most well known method is the fingerprint scanner. This works by producing electrical currents when it scans a user’s finger. Sensors contain an analogue to digital converter enabling it to store the digital information so that it can verify the user next time he/she needs to authenticate their identity.

Benefits of Biometrics

The use of biometrics is swiftly emerging as a leading security method in many industries, as fingerprints are nearly impossible to forge. Biometric security offers numerous benefits over traditional security identification methods:

• It enhances security levels in that the person being identified has to be present
• It negates the need for tokens, cards and passwords that can be easily lost, forgotten or tampered with
• Reduction in costs for replacement of missing ID badges and magnetic security cards
• They can serve as a digital time clock to track employees attendance
