External Security and Emergency Lighting
Emergency lighting provides assurance in an emergency situation when the main power supply is cut and any normal illumination fails. The loss of mains electricity could be the result of a fire or a power cut, and may lead to sudden darkness and a possible danger to the occupants, either through physical danger or panic. 
Emergency lighting is normally required to operate automatically and give illumination of a sufficiently high level to enable all occupants to evacuate the premises safely. 
External security lights can be very useful around the house and garden, or in the office car park and yard for crime prevention and can automatically light up with motion detection. 

Please contact us for further details.

Capstan Security (Wessex) Ltd supply, install and maintain fire alarm systems to current BS5839 standards.
As a long established company we use only the best quality equipment.
  • C-TEC is a leading UK independent manufacturer of quality life safety electronic equipment. 
  • Apollo is the world's largest independent manufacturer of smoke detectors. 
Addressable Fire Alarm Systems 
An addressable fire alarm is designed to provide accurate indications of each detection device on the system and can pinpoint fire activation.  They are generally used in larger installations to help reduce search time in locating a fire.

Addressable alarm systems connect devices using a loop. This is where one wire connects all devices, and both ends of the wire loop connect to the control panel. 

Conventional Fire Alarm Systems 
A conventional fire alarm is generally designed for smaller installations. 
There is no way of pinpointing the exact location of the fire. However, by wiring your building into different zones, you can get a general idea of where the fire is.  
With a conventional alarm, each device will be connected to the control panel via its own wire, rather than a shared one.  One end of the wire connects to the device and the other to the control panel.  

Devices for Fire Alarm Systems 
Devices that can be connected to your fire alarm system include: 
  • Manual Call Points 
  • Smoke Detectors 
  • Heat Detectors 
  • Sounders 
  • Visual Indicators 
Please contact us for further details or to arrange a site visit.
Regulatory Reform Order (Fire Safety Order) 2005 
There are a variety of configurations of Automatic Fire Detection and Alarm systems designated by L,P and M codes with sub categories to denote the type of coverage the system should have, and they are derived from BS5839: 2002 which is the main standard relating to the fitting of such systems. 
View the Government Guide for your type of business
There are several Types of Fire Systems and they are designated by Letters as follows: 

"M" Fire Alarm Systems 
These comprise of Manual Call Points where recommended to raise the Alarm throughout the building, usually found on escape routes, staircases etc. There is no Automatic Fire Detection built in and is operated by someone raising the alarm. 
"L" Fire Alarm Systems 
These are concerned primarily with preserving life, and enabling all occupants other than those immediately affected by the fire, to make good their escape from the building. There are several categories within the L system identified as L1 through to L5 (lesser). The sub categories denote the type of Automatic sensors, sirens and beacons to be fitted and where. 
As these systems are designed primarily to evacuate the building and prevent loss of life/injury, the system may not automatically call for the brigade and protection of property is dealt with by P Fire Alarm Systems. 
"P" Fire Alarm Systems 
These denote an Automatic Fire Detection System installed to take on the additional task on not only preserving life but protecting the building and contents as well when the building is quiet and unoccupied. The system should automatically dial out to the Brigade as a matter of course. Again there are various sub categories from P1 to P5, where the type of protection from the sensors used may be varied.

Fire Systems may be configured by mixing and matching categories to produce an alarm fit for purpose in any particular premises.  Also bear in mind that the construction of the building should be such that fire resistant materials are to be used that can slow down the spread of a major fire and its gases, thus giving people the time they need to escape once the alarm is raised. The object of the Automatic Fire Detection system is to raise the alarm at the earliest possible moment to allow an escape.

View the CCTV Code of Practice.

The introduction of the Data Protection Act means that most CCTV installations designed to provide either crime prevention, crime detection or to enhance the safety of the public will now have to comply with the requirements of the Act.

The Act applies to commercial and public CCTV systems only, so if your system is for your own private residence you do not need to comply with it.

If your CCTV system includes a video recorder (analogue or digital), it is now a legal requirement that you operate the system in accordance with the Data Protection Act.

The Basic Requirements of the Act are that you:

  • Display warning signs to show that CCTV cameras are recording
  • Log all of your recordings, as well as who changes the tapes and when
  • Label each tape
  • Keep all your recorded tapes and video recorders secure
  • Register
  • Notify the Information Commissioner online or by telephone on 01625 545700, and pay a fee (currently £35)

There are several types of Intruder Alarm Systems: 
  • Audible only system - when the alarm activates it does not call any key holders or police but the sirens ring to notify the neighbours. 
  • Audible system with Dialler (speech only or speech and text) - these units are designed to transmit a verbal message or a text message to a number of telephones (maximum of eight) for key holder response only. 
  • Monitored alarm systems are fitted with an Alarm Transmission Device to provide remote signalling that will notify key holders and police.

BT Redcare offer various signalling devices including Redcare Secure that comes in three variants and benefits from being a dual path system, meaning that two separate routes are used to signal the alarms to the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). In the event of one path being faulty or unavailable, the alarm message will be delivered over the other path. 

CSL Dualcom uses any available UK GPRS/GSM network and a telephone and/or IP path to signal an alarm to the ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre). Utilising multiple paths means there is a back-up path in the event of an accidental or deliberate fault on any path. CSL Dualcom also offers an alarm signalling device via a radio path (GPRS/GSM) from the protected premises to the ARC as well as a digital communicator. 

WebWayOne offer a secure dual path alarm signalling system.  It can detect faults and measures performance in any network with real time remote diagnostics.

To change the appearance of the page, edit the styles of the corresponding elements (in most cases by using the "Main Frame" Style Zone).  
To change the menu’s links: edit, copy-paste, or delete the Link Elements within. 
To hide an element without deleting it, use its property Visible.

- The background images used on this page are not royalty-free. Please use images from your own collection.  
- The page SAMPLE is a "hidden" page that contains sets of elements grouped into "sections": Title + photo, Icons + text, text + icons + video, etc...  
Select the section that best fits the design desired and copy/paste it onto your page (to “paste” in a specific location, right-click and choose Paste). Be sure to take the entirety of the section by selecting its external container (the one containing the background image or color). 
- Important: each "section" must have one, and only one, inner container (element group) for the section content. The outer margins of this sub-container set minimum distances from section boundaries.
- The "Horizontal" button in the "Selection" menu controls the automatic centering of an element. 

- To change the order of elements - i.e. place an element below another in a "relative" positioned container (like most of the content in the sections), use the Element Explorer on the left: green "arrow buttons" will appear when it is possible to change the order. Icons under an element and above the element group allow to put elements onto the same "line" and modify alignment.
- The entire header menu can be modified in its dedicated Layer (e.g. "Base_MenuRetractable"; simply change the page’s Layer to use a different menu). Use this to modify menu links (by copy/pasting existing links), change the colors etc. Note that these elements are pre-programmed to work with one another, so try to avoid “dragging” new ones on that could disrupt the general responsive behavior of the menu (favor using copy & paste).
