Integrated Security Systems

0345 521 0580 | www.astrasec.com


We design, supply, install

and maintain integrated

security systems

We offer bespoke solutions that deliver against your security requirements. We listen

to what you need and design the ideal system using industry leading technology.

This often includes CCTV, remote monitoring, access control and more.

We are independent of manufacturers,

so our expert advice focuses on what

you, the customer, need. Our company

was founded on a personal approach to

doing business. As we have grown, that

has remained constant. It’s why we win so

much new business by word of mouth.

We also retain our customers this way.

We cover the entire UK with our team

of regionally based technicians. Based

in major cities across the nation, our

engineers are always on hand to

ensure a swift response.

Our integrated system means we have complete control over our

back of house access, with exceptional quality CCTV coverage

of our retail areas. The team at Astra are all experts in their field,

from initial design through to installation and servicing.

Why customers choose

us and stay

We’ve said it already, but it’s worth

repeating, we win the majority of

our work by word of mouth. Our

customers stay with us. That doesn’t

happen by accident. We are committed

to our personal, professional service

that is focussed around what you need.

It’s why companies come to us, and

more importantly it’s why they stay.

Before anything else, we discuss and

assess your requirements. Once we

fully understand what you want to

achieve, we design, install and maintain

your bespoke security system. Because

we are independent of suppliers, we

can build the exact solution you

need. We will combine both

existing and new systems to

create the perfect fit.

As our client, you have a dedicated

account manager and account support.

There are no faceless call centres here. We

are committed to providing a swift response

whenever you need us. Many of our customers

see us as an extension of their in house team. We

work as a partner rather than a supplier. We have

monthly and quarterly account review meetings that

keep discussions going. This means we continue to deliver

exceptional customer service.

Astra really understood our requirements and designed

a bespoke solution. We have significantly reduced stock

losses and increased successful prosecutions. It means we

have happier, more confident staff as a result.

Case Study: Retail

The Issue:

Holland & Barrett wanted to ensure the safety of staff & customers, reduce stock

loss and manage stock control. They also want to manage health and safety

compliance, assess effectiveness of in store marketing, and use heat mapping to

understand in store footfall, all from a remote head office location.

The Solution:

A continuous rollout and upgrade programme across the national network of

stores and distribution centres. Full high definition remote IP CCTV, accessible

from head office, who also have their own CCTV & number plate recognition for

vehicle access.

The Results:

The impact has been significant. The retailer has experienced a dramatic

reduction in stock loss. There has been an increase in the percentage of

successful prosecutions & banning orders where theft or staff abuse has taken

place. Staff confidence has increased as a result, and they also have improved

relationships with local Police and crime prevention.


Case Study: Logistics

The Issue:

CEVA needed elevated security to meet the terms of a contract. This included

restricting and protecting areas within the distribution centre, ensuring supply

chain integrity. High value areas containing client data required additional security.

They also required HD imagery over a two month period, covering all areas of the

facility & vehicles.

The Solution:

We discussed their requirements, and designed and proposed a bespoke system.

This included an industry leading access control system, certified to the requisite

high standard. Fingerprint access controlled areas within the distribution centre,

with iris recognition protecting high value areas. The CCTV system was designed to

provide high resolution imagery for the required period. Our plan detailing the

installation process and all acceptance testing, was included in the contract tender.

The Results:

Following on from successful installation of the proposed system, the client was

awarded the high-level contract. The contract awarder has remote monitoring

ability, ensuring their supply chain integrity is maintained, meeting all requirements

of the initial brief.
