Kenwood was founded on the guiding principles of quality, innovation and design. These principles remain steadfast today at the very heart of the company and their products.

They are also the reason that one Kenwood appliance is sold every three seconds across the world.

The company was founded by Kenneth Maynard Wood in 1947 in the town of Woking, where manufacturing originally began in his garage. His ethos was to help liberate women in the kitchen by designing labour saving devices. In 1962 the company outgrew its original factory space and moved to new Head Offices in Havant, Hampshire where they still maintain their UK operations.

Detect Fire & Security Ltd approached Kenwood to offer their services for the installation of a new IP CCTV system to replace the aging analogue system.

Detect demonstrated an IP CCTV system at a nearby site to the Kenwood offices which had recently been completed.

Kenwood were so impressed with the quality and ease of use of the system demonstrated that an order was quickly placed for a 22 IP camera system complete with network video recorders and monitors.

Following on from the new system and the professionalism of Detect, we were invited to provide a proposal to take over the servicing and monitoring of all other fire and security disciplines on site;

Fire Alarm System
Fire Alarm Monitoring
Intruder Alarm System
Intruder Alarm Monitoring
Access Control System
Detect also provide a 24/7 response to Kenwood as part of the service agreement.

The relationship over the past months has grown from strength to strength for both businesses with Kenwood enjoying a service based upon the knowledge of trust and professionalism from our friendly team.
