Keybury has been successfully protecting homes and business properties for over a quarter of a century, cost-effectively installing and maintaining thousands of security systems – burglar alarms, CCTV systems, access control systems and security lighting.

The firm is one of the most accredited suppliers in the industry with certification from the National Security Inspectorate, UKAS, BAFE, BSIA and FPA amongst several others.  As Patrick Beebe, Operations Director for Keybury explains, “We place a great deal of importance on accreditation and certification as the products and services we supply to our clients are absolutely critical in protecting lives and property. We need to be certain that we are doing everything within our power to ensure that every element is installed and maintained based on manufacturers specification and industry best practice.”

Keybury has been awarded the highest level of MOBOTIX accreditation following a deep technical training and examination program successfully completed by the firms CCTV installation and maintenance teams over several months. “We had looked at IP CCTV in the past and some of the innovative technologies from MOBOTIX such as the hemispheric cameras and door entry systems offer unique features that will help us deliver highly integrated security solutions that meet the needs of our clients.” Mr Beebe added.

The Advanced MOBOTIX Partner (AMP) certification ensures that customers specifying a solution from Keybury can be certain that the firm has a full technical understanding of the entire product range as well as the support from MOBOTIX to deliver vendor-backed specialist support.

Keybury has a reputation for embracing new technology and recently announced a service platform to enable business or domestic customers to keep tabs on their CCTV security systems remotely via their mobile phones or iPads.
