WITH more than 12 years of experience working in the property and security sectors, Nigel Ward and his team have brought Portcullis Alarms to Lyme Regis.

Founded specifically to deliver high quality security and personal protection alarms to the residential market, Portcullis Alarms will work with you to ensure your alarm system works around you and your family.

All the equipment that Nigel and his team provide is sourced from UK suppliers and meets the strictest official standards – you can be confident of having the highest quality system installed.

Nigel offers a truly local service and is therefore focusing his business on West Dorset, South Somerset and East Devon.

He said: “Being able to offer a truly personal service is crucial to us. Each of our clients receives such a tailored, individual service that they think they are our only client! We pride ourselves on providing this level of personal service to all our customers.”

Nigel’s other professional passion is protecting the elderly and the vulnerable through his personal alarms. Life can be stressful for those caring for elderly relatives and those with memory problems or long-term illnesses but it is important that family members maintain their independence as much as possible.

Nigel has a solution for this with a clever GSM and GPS medical pendant. Customers compliment the device for its ease of use and low running cost, allowing them to secure their independence whilst giving family members the reassurance of knowing that in the event of an emergency, help is just the press of a button away. Again, personal service is paramount.

“We ensure that every customer meets their engineer personally and develops a relationship with the team who will monitor their alarm and respond to any emergency,” says Nigel.

To find out more about how Nigel can help you feel safe in your home and/or maintain your independence, please contact him by phone on 01297 445897 or email him at or via the website

Portcullis Alarms supports community lunches and memory café

NIGEL Ward of Portcullis Alarms has presented a personal GSM panic button and tracking device to Lyme Forward as a prize to those attending the monthly community lunch and memory café.

The device was received by Heather Prior, who runs the memory café, and volunteer Caroline Powley (pictured).

The personal panic button and tracking device is the ideal solution for people who travel alone, work late at night, are older and need to maintain their independence or who have a condition such as dementia and who may become confused or disorientated when they are out and about.

Each person attending the community lunches and memory café at Lyme Regis Football Club will receive a raffle ticket and the winner will be drawn at the Christmas lunch.
