Default Burglar alarms and CCTV

I run my own small business in the UK designing and installing intruder alarms and CCTV. I am looking to move to Spain and was wondering what the demand is for security systems out there in villas and bars etc ?

Would it be wise to start my own business out there or are there companies already there who would employ an English speaking installer/salesperson ?

I would like to contact any security companies in Spain. Could you let me know of any that are near you ?

I would love to hear all your comments and suggestions please.
Many thanks for your time

Tony.

Tony,

There is demand for security systems, keyless entry, automatic gate systems, cctv, etc.

If you don't speak Spanish you'll be, probably, limited to the ex-pat market.

Look at systems that use mobile technology and aren't reliant on fixed lines for alert and third party notification.

Securitas are pretty big in Spain in the home alarm market, they might be worth contacting once you are here.

Security companies are strictly controlled by the Ministry of the Interior and you may find it impossible to obtain the necessary permits to open and operate your business especially for the installation of alarms which are to be connected to a central station.

You would probably find it easier to get a job with one of the big companies. ADT operate here and have a large client database.

There are some jobs with this company offered here:

but it is likely that you will need a good command of the Spanish language.
