Urban Antidote, Leicester

burglar alarm installation for art gallery

What Is Urban Antidote?

Urban Antidote, home of unique and contemporary art, opened its doors to the public on Saturday 6th October 2018 in the popular area of St Martin’s Square, in Leicester’s city centre. The gallery was originally located in Lutterworth, Leicestershire, founded by art lover and enthusiast, Sara Lovatt in 2013.
Sara wanted to eliminate the negative idea that the ‘Art World’ was full of arrogance and pretence and therefore offers new and existing client’s the warmest of welcomes, upon each and every visit to her gallery.

What We Installed

After discussing our client’s requirements, we designed and installed a full Grade 2 Intruder Alarm System with Grade 4 monitoring and police response, along with an IP CCTV system which covers the gallery both internally and externally for complete security and re-assurance for Sara.


“I first met the Abel team in 2017 when I opened a pop up gallery in Highcross shopping centre Leicester. They could not have been more diligent, it was clear that the main priority was the safety of me and my staff as well as the building.

When I found my new premises in St Martins square Abel were the first people on my list to call. They took a lot of the stress away from me by dealing with my landlords and other contractors directly. Their professionalism is second to none. My system is easy to use and despite a spate of break ins locally, I feel safe that the exterior presence of a new well maintained alarm box and the CCTV cameras are keeping us protected”.
