A Bradford security technology company has been inundated with enquires from tradesmen wanting to join its new national network of approved installers.

Securahomes, at Wyke, develops wireless technology to provide monitored home security systems.

It launched an approved national installer network and has received enquiries from electricians and alarm engineers from as far away as Scotland.

Martin Mann, founder and managing director of Securahomes, said: “Our technology is only available to the trade and since we launched our national approved installer network we have witnessed an overwhelming number of applications from electricians and alarm installers wishing to join.

“ The number of enquiries we have received is very encouraging and will help support our goal of becoming the UK’s best homecare technology innovator.”

Securahomes is aiming to boost its position in the UK’s £100 million alarm market through its monitored fire, smoke, intruder and carbon monoxide alarm systems.

Its technology provides panic assistance, medical alarm for those more likely to suffer accidents at home and 24-hour cover for those living alone. The new network operates like a free franchise system for trades people, enabling those who achieve approved status to receive support from Securahomes such as sales training, marketing and business planning.

Mr Mann said: “It offers alarm installers the opportunity to build up a very substantial income.”
