Hampshire based security company, Basingstoke Security and Manned Guarding , offer local businesses
and householders in the Basingstoke, Hook, north Hampshire, Fleet, Tadley, Surrey and west Berkshire areas,
a comprehensive keyholding and intruder alarm response services.
We would be pleased to take on the responsibility as your fully-insured 24/7 security key holder, ensuring a
professional security response from our dedicated Control Room, reassuring you of a swift reaction to intruder,
environmental systems or smoke alarm activation calls from your Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC).
We can also install and maintain one of our own portable alarm systems and surveillance, visual identification,
cameras which do not require electricity or telephone connection. These send alerts to our Control Room or
direct to your staff mobile phones; alternatively, if your insurers require, you can have your system monitored by
an insurance-approved Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) who call us direct in the event of smoke detection or
intruder alarm activation.
Basingstoke Security and Manned Guarding’s SIA licensed security officers are trained to the highest
standards, including appropriate Health and Safety induction, to give you peace of mind. We serve commercial
business premises and residential domestic properties and include priority response to panic alarm activations.
When not being used, your keys are held in a secure location.
Our key holding services reduces the personal risk to your staff, as lone workers attending alarm activations
alone (maybe driving after having alcohol or little sleep) potentially face injury and assault when confronting
In addition, our reliable and flexible daily security locking and unlocking service for business premises operates
7 days a week. In this way, there is no personal risk to your staff having to unlock or lock up alone, or hold keys
and codes - thereby avoiding lone working and any problems associated with your regular keyholder not being
available through sickness or holidays.
As there are many robberies when staff are unlocking in the morning or locking up at night our daily lock and
unlock service by a trained, SIA licensed, uniformed security officer should deter many thieves.
And, by closing all windows and doors, and turning off unwanted lights, when locking up, we not only improve
your security but can also help save running costs.
We know, from having managed the daily locking and unlocking of commercial properties for many years, that
there can occasionally be operational changes at short notice. So, we are flexible to cope with such variation to
the opening or closing times when the need arises.
In high security or “List X” environments, our security guards can also check that there are no confidential
documents left in photocopiers, all laptops are put away securely and that no intruders are accidentally given
unauthorised access by staff holding doors open when leaving site.
We can also provide security guards at weekends or out-of-hours to supervise contractors working on site.
The security of your building will be increased as the number of staff currently with keys can be minimised. It
also avoids the difficult situation where you have staff leaving your employment and not returning your keys for
