Churches sit at the centre of many communities. Theft of Lead from the roof or vandalism to the fabric of the building or the churchyard causes more than physical damage. The violation of a sacred space, and the cost of remedying the resulting harm can impact the community badly. The cost of making repairs to a church roof can be high and may well have an adverse effect on the general maintenance budget as well as increasing insurance premiums.
Every Ace Defence system is connected to an NSI Gold approved Monitoring Centre where it is monitored and controlled by fully trained staff, who will provide round the clock protection. In the event of an intrusion, nominated key holders are contacted to provide the necessary response. In addition, our detection devices use video to confirm a real intrusion and automatically filters out false alarms completely along with unnecessary siren activations and costly key holder callouts.
Ace Defence supports every installation through bespoke maintenance schedules to allow long term life expectancy of the alarm, and correct functioning of the system, even where they sit on a roof exposed to the elements. With over ten years of experience working with church authorities, we understand the alarm that is needed when working on ancient and listed buildings and fully comply with the requirements both Ecclesiastical and Trinitas insurance providers.

Preventing theft and increasing site safety are both key concerns for site managers and Ace Defence are here to support you.
Our systems can be seamlessly connected to your existing Roof Alarm, or we can install stand-alone systems to suit your site requirement.
An unmanned site compound is a tempting target for thieves. Either a planned raid to remove plant and building materials, or an opportunist criminal scaling the fence for a look at what he may be able to take. Both these are deterred by an Ace Defence video verification system. With more small developments taking place away from regularly visited parts of villages or towns the chance of theft and vandalism increases.
The PCC decided to opt for the Ace Defence system because of their Webcam facility included in the sensors, enabling the monitoring centre to verify the presence of intruders and to avoid costly false alarms.
