Empty buildings and houses (or “void properties”) are prime targets for arsonists, squatters, thieves or vandals. Making sure that your vacant site is secure and unaffected by these influences demands consistent monitoring.

Most leading insurance companies will not cover empty properties if they are not under regular surveillance and advise property owners to seek caretaking solutions from security professionals.

Compact Security will save you time and money by offering flexible security packages tailored to your needs.

Trained professionals will monitor your vacant property, checking for physical damage or theft to the outside of the building, putting together full itinerary reports and photographic evidence of the condition of the property, assessing any illegal entry and removing mail and reading meters if required. These are the checks and safety measures that will provide vital information in successful insurance claims.

Our mobile patrol officers will conduct regular visits to the site and install CCTV and alarm systems where required.

24hr asset protection and dog handling can be arranged for high risk properties.


Opening and closing a building, especially in the dark winter months, can be a daunting extra task for your staff. Lone workers or even the last person to walk to their car might feel vulnerable and at risk.

Our 24hr locking and unlocking, alarm response and staff escort service ensures both your premises and your staff team remain confident and secure around the clock.

In addition, our licensed security professionals often perform start of day and end of day checks throughout the premises, turning on/off electrical appliances, lights and air conditioning to ensure resources are optimised and your workplace is 100% secure.

You can hand your keys to us safe in the knowledge that we have the safety of your business at heart.
