Installing intruder alarms, CCTV systems and access control systems in Dyson’s Demo Stores in the UK and Europe

Dyson, the technology company responsible for some of the world’s leading household appliances, appointed Ace to design and install a complete security solution for its new Demo Stores in London, Lyon, Hamburg and Utrecht. We installed intruder alarms, CCTV and access control to protect the stores and the expensive products they house against the risks of theft and vandalism.

Key Issues

Dyson is well-known as one of the most innovative technology companies in the world. The Demo Stores have a high-tech, industrial feel with lots of expensive products on display in a gallery-like style. They required a reliable, high-security solution to protect their products, as well as their staff and customers. The systems needed to incorporate the latest technologies to match Dyson’s innovative ethos and had to be installed in a way that didn’t detract from the impressive feel of the space. The work also needed to be carried out with social distancing measures in place due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Ace approach

We installed Honeywell Galaxy Intruder Alarms and Axis IP cameras for CCTV surveillance, as well as Milestone XProtect Video Management Software (VMS). We also installed S2 Access Control with Axess readers. All systems were set up to be centrally managed by the security team at the Dyson head office in Malmesbury, Wiltshire. We provided a Project Manager to oversee the installation at each site and ensure it went smoothly.



The installation was completed on time, within budget, and in a manner that did not detract from the impressive high-tech feel of the retail space. Each Demo Store benefits from a robust security solution using the latest technologies for enhanced protection, and the systems can be accessed by the central security team based in the head office. Dyson has peace of mind that their stores and products are secure and their staff and customers are safe.
