About Portcullis Alarms

Nigel Ward, founder of Portcullis Alarms

Professional service

Established and based in the South West by Nigel Ward with over 15 years experience in the property and security industry, we offer secure, reliable security systems for yourself, your home and your business. 

Our client base is truly international covering the retail, hospitality and FMCG sectors. We work with organisations based in Ireland, the UK and Spain.

Nigel established the business primarily to service the needs of clients looking to protect their lone workers and vulnerable employees with truly cost effective and reliable portable security solutions. Having been a Property Director for years Nigel understood the need to balance the protection of the business against litigation and repetitional harm with the need to protect employees.

Whislt we have international reach and a truly blue-chip client base, that doesn't mean that we do not offer an extremely personal service.  Thanks to the high number of referrals that we receive, Nigel and his team continue  to deliver that personal, outstanding customer service time after time. 

All of our systems are monitored 24 hours a day, which ensures that no alarm activation is ever ignored.

As soon as an emergency occurs our alarm receiving centre follow an emergency protocol to handle any situation.
