Do Void Property Security Services work?
The simple answer is yes, but only if they have been planned, implemented and reported correctly. Almost all void property security services are requested by an insurance provider, to ensure the empty property remains in good condition. Most insurance companies will require as a bare minimum of weekly property inspections. These inspection require a full external patrol checking for signs of forced entry, graphite or general vandalism. The internal inspection is required to ensure every room within the property is free from signs of squatter, damp, fire, flood and windows are in a safe weather proof conduction.
Smart Guard Security property inspectors us a reporting app called TrackTic. This app allows our team to compile your void property report in real time and include HD images of anything noted. Once complete the report is emailed directly to your chosen email address and copies are stored on our internal server. Our void property inspections are the most comprehensive within the industry and include as standard:
Void Property External Inspection
- Check for signs of attempted intrusion
- Check for signs of graphite
- Check general area for signs of fly tipping
Void property Internal Inspection
- Check the integrity of all windows and doors and make sure they are secure
- Check each room for signs of damp, water ingress, mould and general damage
- Check the celling area of each room for signs of damp, mould or water ingress
Water ingress through poorly maintained or damaged roof’s, cost landlords tens of thousands of pounds each year. So why don’t people inspect the roof area?.

Void Property CCTV
Void property presents a unique challenge for CCTV systems and monitoring services, as 99% of the time the property has no mains power. For the last ten years, the only usable battery powered option available for void properties offered extremely low quality images, to the point you were unable to tell what colour cloths a persons was wearing. IN this day and age, anything less than 1080p HD is just not good enough.
Smart Guard supply the Reconeyes void property CCTV system, it is 100% wireless and the battery can last up to 1 year. Each camera is simple paired to a control unit that contains the 4G router. This is a turn key solution for monitoring void property and the system is monitored by our in house control room from the get go.
The Detector combines a passive infrared (PIR) sensor with signal analysis to monitor the area for thermal signatures. If motion is detected, an alarm is generated and the camera is activated.
