Choice has installed the latest intelligent, cctv-based intruder alarm system using DeepinMind technology from Hikvision at a Grade II-listed Elizabethan manor house in south-east England. Within its walled garden the privately-owned property is protected by a perimeter ring of cctv cameras.
Building on a successful security access control and fire systems relationship with East Sussex College Hastings, Choice has extended the access control solution it provides to Eastbourne and Lewes college sites which now form, with Hastings, part of the East Sussex College Group (ESCG).

It is an unfortunate fact that terrorism, criminality, social unrest and even environmental incidents can create situations where there is a security need for organisations to contain and protect personnel within their premises.

Yeoman becomes Scutum Digital
Choice’s preferred third-party monitoring services partner, Yeoman Monitoring Services, has commenced rebranding its identity and logo to align within its Europe-wide parent business, Scutum Group, under the name Scutum Digital. This transition in no way alters service provision by the Monitoring Centre/ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre) facility or Choice customers’ communications regarding security and fire system monitoring services – all contact numbers, logons, passwords etc are unaffected.
With external influences in the UK’s economic and political environment causing some nervousness and after a cautious trading period at the start to the year, Choice saw much-improved results in new orders and revenues to finish 2018 strongly.
Recurring and reactive maintenance revenues remained stable and we are pleased to report an upturn in capital revenues – primarily system installation activity – across most sectors. Staff turnover rates remain low and retention of experienced staff remains excellent. To continue to support growth, Choice further increased its staff numbers by 20% during 2018. A healthy order book gives us great optimism for continued success in 2019.
