Older people or those with physical or mobility impairments who want to maintain certain degree of independence have special security needs.

Building security and access control systems

  • Timed access control can enable care workers to call, or allow staff into authorised areas during their shifts, while denying them access at other times.
  • Pin-code and card or key fob systems allow residents to come and go as they please, without compromising security.
  • Car parks, mailboxes and entrances are protected and controlled.
  • Scheme managers can manage master keys
  • Lockdown against intruders or unlock all doors in case of fire.


Scheme managers can access password protected ‘live’ feeds of discreet security cameras from any or multiple locations, on or off-site. This allows personnel to be monitored and provides crucial identification and evidence should an attack or theft occur. Care workers can also check on residents in public areas, regularly.

Entry-phones and intercom systems

Each flat can be equipped with either phone or video entry systems so that residents know exactly who is calling. Intercoms allow scheme managers and carers to check on residents with a friendly call, and allow residents to speak to staff immediately if something is wrong.

Panic buttons

We can install wired or radio panic buttons by doors and beds so that should a resident fall or become ill, they can summon help immediately.

Intruder and fire alarms

Fully monitored integrated CCTV, intruder and fire systems will ensure that the emergency services are automatically alerted in the event of a break-in or attack. Dual-path signalling means that even if your phone lines are cut police and fire services can be alerted by radio signal.

Five Star Security has over 20 years experience within the warden control industry, carrying out annual PPMs for many local authorities and housing associations nationwide.
