The selection of manufacturers and products to be incorporated in a security system is critical.
Leigh Visual seeks suppliers who are leaders in their fields and can provide high levels of support for their products over many years.  Usually the product from such suppliers is towards the higher end of the pricing spectrum, but the higher performance and lower lifetime costs justify an initially higher cost. We seek partnerships with our key suppliers and invest time in learning their product in-depth.  This enables Leigh Visual to offer its’ customers a high level of support. For example Leigh Visual is a Honeywell Pro-Watch approved installer.  This involves not only the usual product training requirements but also annual inspections of Leigh Visual premises and installations.
