NEW SECURITY SYSTEM:
PHILAS House now has a state-of-the-art security system with multiple cameras on every floor and covering the entrance areas. The views from the cameras can be monitored in real time and can be viewed as recordings for at least a month afterwards. It is also possible to get close-ups of anything recorded by the cameras.
This increased security will be a great help during the auctions and on auction viewing days.
