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
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
