Planning the best security for your store can sometimes involve striking a particularly difficult balance. On one hand, you want to make sure your shop is welcoming, relaxed and a pleasant place for customers. However, you also need to make sure your property, stock and staff are all protected from intruders.

This is where SECOM comes in. We are experienced at providing retailers with the specialised security systems they need to make their stores safe without making them seem unwelcoming to customers. We install your retail security quickly and without disruption to your customers or day-to-day trading activities, in line with our commitment to provide quality service.

At SECOM, we understand that each store has its own unique security needs. As such, we can tailor our service to your needs so your business and staff are as well-protected as possible. Here are some of the retail security systems we offer:

Integrated Retail Security

For many businesses, the greatest security threat is not intruders breaking in and stealing bulk amounts of stock. Instead, it is the small crimes that cause the biggest losses. Shoplifting can often lead to a surprisingly large loss of revenue over time, so it is wise to invest in one of our security solutions to prevent it.

We can provide you with electronic stock tagging to alert you when somebody attempts to remove one of your items from the premises, for example, or design and install a CCTV system that will let you keep an eye on your shopfloor.

Security cameras will also help protect staff from abuse. Alongside these systems, we can also provide intruder alarms that prevent anyone from sneaking into the back of your store, keeping your workforce safe from any unwelcome visitors.


Physical Security For High Risk Retail Premises

Of course, this might not be enough. If your business involves goods that are particularly valuable and high-risk, such as jewellery, alcohol and tobacco, you will want a stronger security system capable of keeping the most determined thieves out. We can design and install systems such as this to fit with your store’s needs, whatever they are.

SECOM designs and installs custom physical security features, such as grilles, anti-ram posts and roller shutters, ideal for retail premises stocking high-risk products. These help to add an extra layer of safety to your store, giving you peace of mind and protecting you from loss of revenue caused by damage or theft.

Electronic Security For E-retail Fulfilment Centres

Of course, if your business is online then you will not need the same security systems as a traditional retail business. SECOM is still able to help, however. While you don’t have to worry about the security of a customer-serving store, you will almost certainly have a warehouse full of valuable stock that will need protecting.

We have extensive experience of providing integrated retail security solutions designed to protect warehouses and distribution centres supporting online retail fulfilment. This enables us to design you a security system that will protect against intruders, keeping your business safe and well-protected.

Security Solutions For Retail Premises

Intruder alarms

Unauthorised access is often one of the biggest challenges facing business owners, and never more so than in the retail sector. As well as taking care of your staff, you have a duty to protect your customers too, all the while prioritising the security of your stock and premises. Our fully integrated intruder detection technology can help to protect your premises 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Continuously monitored, our wireless retail intruder alarms are tailored to provide your business with the best possible protection.


When it comes to the retail sector, it is important to strike the right balance between maintaining a relaxing environment for your customers, and ensuring that your property, stock and staff are sufficiently protected. We can offer retail CCTV systems that are perfectly tailored to your individual business. With 30 years’ experience in designing, installing and maintaining CCTV surveillance cameras, we will work with you to design a system that suits the nature and layout of your premises. Our retail CCTV cameras all offer high quality images and footage, and can be installed by professional engineers with minimal disruption to your day to day trading.

Access control

The very nature of the retail sector leaves it more vulnerable than most to breaches of security. In order to help make sure your premises is always a safe environment for your employees and customers, SECOM’s retail access control systems work by ensuring only authorised personnel have access to restricted areas of your property. Shoplifting is a major source of revenue loss within the retail industry, but our experienced designers can work with you to select a suitable solution that fits your requirements, regardless of the size and nature of your business.
