Convenient key holding services in the South of England

Security key holders

Forget middle of the night wake up calls and alarm triggers; let Goldcrest Guarding Security Services respond on your behalf. We provide key holding services across Portsmouth and Hampshire, offering fast alarm response security services who will get on site fast. Let us take care of your alarms – call us on 023 9220 0999.

Hand over the responsibility to our team of reliable and experienced security key holders. When your alarm is triggered, our security key holders investigate the cause of the alarm on your behalf. We then alarm authorities and engineers as required. As part of our key holding service, our key holder remains on site until the situation is fully resolved and your building is properly re-secured.

Reliable alarm response security

Intruders pose real threats in both commercial and domestic settings, both damaging your property and violating your privacy. While traditional ‘bell-only’ alarms make the most noise, the best security solutions stop intruders in their tracks. At Goldcrest Guarding Security Services, our intruder alert systems help you take all necessary measures to protect your business or home from loss and disruption. Our reliable bespoke and off-the-shelf solutions include:

Premises intruder detection
Fire and smoke alarms
Panic alarms
Lone worker alarms

Temporary security solutions

Need surveillance and protection for just a few months? Our temporary security systems offer wireless and remotely-monitored solutions. Integrating cameras, illumination devices and motion sensors, systems send a video clip of intruders to a 24/7 monitoring centre. An operator assesses the clip instantly, following a call to your nominated contact. A Grade 2 insurance-approved system, our temporary security solutions suit domestic and commercial applications. Avoid false alarms with 24/7 monitoring and assessing and minimise false call-outs and hassles often caused by birds, animals and even weather.


Havant Borough Council have been using Goldcrest Guarding Security Services since August 2012 for holiday sickness and extra cover when required for meetings and are pleased to recommend them to other companies that may require their services. We have always had good two-way communication with them with very good response to fulfil our needs.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Goldcrest as a Security provider. I have never had any work related issues and they have always been very responsive to any changes to our business needs


I would like to thank you for the service you have provided, and we will not hesitate to contact you again in the future should we require security on any of our sites.

My thanks for the excellent response and service you guys have provided – especially over the 12 months or so where we have effectively had to operate remotely. It speaks volumes that we have trusted Goldcrest to provide the security cover with no need for managing or overseeing the service.
