From Our Website

CID Fire & Security are able to handle any size of installation, from a fully networked solution to a single standalone system. You need the reassurance of a company that you can trust. A company that ticks all the right boxes: Fire Alarms, Intruder Alarms, CCTV, Access Control and more. At C.I.D Fire & Security Ltd we will design the solution that is right for you - for home or business. C.I.D Fire & Security is a long established family owned Company that has been helping to protect our customers homes and businesses for over 15 years.

CID Fire and Security are the premier security installation, maintenance and repair company in the South West. We have been trading since 1988 and have grown from a small family-owned business. We are SSIAB approved for security installation and maintenance, covering Somerset and many of the surrounding areas. We are proud to be a company that is not driven by sales, but rather led by our engineers. You can rest assured that you will always speak with someone who has in-depth knowledge about the variety of systems that we have on offer.

In addition to the life safety systems we install and maintain, we also provide solutions for server rooms and other temperature critical locations - if an air conditioning unit fails inside a complex server room the damage caused by excess heat can be devastating to both the workforce and the equipment. We can install a simple system consisting of just a temperature sensor or a combined temperature and leak detection monitors, as water can be as devastating as heat to electrical equipment.

CID Fire & Security supply smart card readers and writers that are able to control a selection of things of your choosing. The main advantage of using smart card readers is that they are able to store a lot of information which can be used for other services that you provide. The proximity card readers that we install are small, yet powerful models that can work with a variety of software, and we are able to provide API access so that you can have developers build custom applications for your use.

When you choose to have a monitored alarm system installed, you are ensuring the protection of your interests and assets. That is because each time that an alarm is triggered from a monitored alarm system, a signal is sent to an Alarm Receiving Centre or ARC. The ARC can identify if the alarm is real or false. If they can confirm that it is not a false alarm, they are then obliged to report it to the local authorities, private security and/or the key holder of the premises, who will then attend the scene to deal with the alarm and the potential break in.

Wireless systems are the newer counterpart to hardwired alarm systems. CID Fire & Security have been SSIAB approved installers now for many years, and this includes the design, installation and maintenance of these systems. Installation of a wireless alarm system in your property should be carried out by certified installers to ensure your Insurance Company recognises the installation. There are several benefits to the wireless alarm system when compared to its wired counterpart. Looking at these benefits in detail, we can see that through easy installation, range and the affordability of the wireless devices, you can be assured that you are getting a quality system.

CCTV or Closed Circuit Television is one of the most efficient security systems available to date. As an effective deterrent to crime, it is also a capable means of presenting evidence or detecting crime before it happens. CID Fire & Security are an affordable way to have a CCTV system installed in your home or business. We serve customers across the South West, and happily work with customers from outside of that area - after all, security is of the utmost importance to us. Having worked in the security industry for many years, we are experienced in installing systems ranging from one camera to many cameras which can be controlled from a single point.

Our security systems make use of the most up to date technology and provide a way for you to communicate with users who do not have access to your protected area. The most common system to provide this kind of security is the intercom system. The systems generally comprise of a connection from the point of entry to the protected area and is controlled from inside the area by a user. At CID Fire & Security, we are proud to offer installation in both the public and domestic sectors. The setup is usually wired from the door to a point inside the protected are where there is generally a telephone unit to complete the intercom circuit.
