Areas of Expertise:
A security system, in its most basic definition, is a structure of components to detect intrusion into a home or business. Security systems are used in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings to monitor and prevent theft or property damage. It is the cornerstone in defending any property against intruders, from indoor to outdoor surveillance. Some security systems operate with the single purpose of intruder protection. Other more sophisticated systems provide a combination of security methods, including fire detection, security monitoring, security guards, and CCTV surveillance. How a security system works in the event of a break-in will depend on the type of system installed, and the monitoring service purchased. Many security companies offer very affordable DIY systems, while others provide a more robust option as a professional security system. Professionally monitored security systems are a more reliable way to keep a home or business protected. It is considered normal in today’s technology that security companies enhance their systems with an array of smart automation products and third-party integrations. Products like indoor and outdoor cameras, smart locks, lights, thermostats, and more, are usually part of a more robust security system. However, due to the new product offering by security companies, the cost of these systems is now more accessible to the average customer.
Home Automation is the automatic centralized control of a home, called a smart house or smart home. It allows control over lights, thermostats, locks, shades, entertainment systems, appliances, and home security. A home automation system usually connects to a centralized Hub or Control panel, that works as the “brains” of the system through a local wired or wireless network. Numerous smart devices through third-party companies that share the same technology can be added to the smart home system to make it more robust. Home automation delivers the ability to program scenes for smart devices. It allows the user to schedule events, like turning on the lights when the doorbell rings or increasing the temperature of the thermostat when no one is at home. Nowadays, many home security systems come with home automation capabilities to bring comfort to the customer. Setting up a home automation system improves efficiency among smart products while delivering savings on utility bills. Home Automation systems typically require the installation by a certified dealer of a contractor to provide the highest quality of performance and factory standards.
Burglar Alarm System Installation:
An alarm system is an arrangement of integrated devices and security components working together to protect a home or business against potential intruders. A typical security system includes a control panel or centralized Hub, motion detectors, door and window sensors, indoor and outdoor surveillance cameras, and a high-decibel siren. Alarm systems monitor entry points into a property with sensors that notify the control panel and monitoring center when a sensor is triggered. Security companies and certified installers provide professional burglar alarm system installations, from straightforward devices to wired or wireless surveillance cameras. Expert technicians will come to the client’s property and evaluate the security’s state, placing all the devices in the best location possible. Having a professional installation ensures to the customer that the system will be installed and tested appropriately. The experts will help the customer get to know its new security system, explaining how every component works. By the end of the professional installation service, the alarm system will be up and running smoothly. Alarm systems are made for home and business security. Both vary in cost and functionality since the needs are slightly different. Business security requires a more robust system since there is typically more interaction with clientele or enhanced surveillance on a regular basis.
Surveillance Camera Installation:
Surveillance Cameras are closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras used to transmit a video, and in some cases, the audio signal to a receiver. The camera system communicates with monitors or recorders through a wired or wireless network. It is called “closed-circuit” to imply that the access to the content is only available to a specific user and receiver. The system depends basically on two factors: The cameras’ placement on strategic locations and the remote monitoring. Surveillance cameras are used primarily for monitoring and security purposes, overseeing homes, stores, banks, businesses, and more. Security companies now offer an array of products, such as indoor security cameras, designed to keep an eye on family members or to protect goods or assets inside a home or business. While, on the other hand, outdoor security cameras are weatherproof, alerting of the presence of a possible threat within the perimeter of a property. Some surveillance cameras are available in affordable wireless DIY kits because most of the traditional wired CCTV cameras require professional installation. Business surveillance requires more sophisticated equipment than a home would and remains a more expensive option. Companies provide professional or certified installations for the more complex surveillance systems that involve a low voltage wiring set up. Contractors or installers deliver both wireless and wired installations, ensuring a proper camera setup and a working surveillance system in place.
Residential Security Services:
Some companies and certified professionals provide solutions that are focused on delivering a set of products and services for residential customers only. They are designed to fit any home’s needs, from certified locksmiths and electricians to home security systems, home automation, and home theater systems. Companies offering residential services dedicate themselves to provide excellent service to customers who live in different types of homes, from small apartments to larger homes.
An Intercom is a stand-alone device that allows a one-way or two-way communication. It is a voice communication system used within buildings, homes, apartments, and businesses, functioning independently of the telephone network. Intercoms allow users to identify visitors, enhancing their security systems, generally mounted on a wall, incorporating connections to loudspeaker systems, CCTV, telephones, walkie talkies, and many other intercom systems. Different types of intercom devices will vary according to the nature of the installation and service needed, such as audio and video intercoms, IP intercoms, and custom lobby panels. Intercom systems are more commonly used in residential apartments and office buildings, for a more convenient way of identifying visitors. Professional installers may also provide guidance with intercom systems for the home or building automation. Expert technicians deliver intercom services, such as repairs, new installations, and can even engineer solutions for a more customized communication system.
Fire Protection System:
A fire alarm system is made up of various devices working collectively to detect and alert the presence of smoke, fire, or carbon monoxide through audio and visual appliances. Many security companies offer fire alarm monitoring with their home and business monitoring. These fire protection services include alarm-initiating devices, such as smoke detectors, heat detectors, CO sensors, etc. It is intended to warn the tenants of a possibly dangerous situation taking place at their home or business. The alarms are designed for fire prevention, activating automatically when smoke or fire detectors are triggered. These devices may come with a wireless DIY installation that could require screws and basic tools. A few manufacturers deliver more robust alarm systems, with fire alarm control communicators, voice evacuation products, remote power supplies, and more. The components require a wired professional installation, provided by the companies or authorized dealers that sell them. Some home and building safety interfaces may include alarm buttons or pull stations, fire sprinklers and fire extinguishers, as part of fire safety measures. These fire protection components need a certified expert to install them properly, for guaranteed top functionality.
Access Control Installation:
Access control systems are security procedures that limit access to a location, such as buildings, rooms, and campuses. It combines hardware and software to control the entry points of a property. The entry point can be doors, gates, elevators, or another physical barrier where granting access can electronically rely on users. In general, access control systems must have a control panel that will work as the main computer, an electric lock, and a reader. Entry system readers include keypads, credentials, card readers, Personal Identification Numbers (PINs), biometric fingerprints, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags, or face recognition technology, to gain access to the restricted areas. Door access control systems offer a convenient way to secure a location, replacing the need for keys or security guards. Traditional front door locks are being rapidly swapped by these systems, with the bonus of reducing costs while increasing security. Today’s most popular ones are biometric door access control systems and RFID access control systems. Access control installations are determined by the system’s capabilities and components. It integrates access control software, a user database, management tools, and locking hardware. An access control technician can help with installation, maintenance, and repair of each one of the system’s components. They can also supply integrated access control systems with extensive product selections, from controllers to software packages.
Low Voltage Wiring:
Low voltage wiring refers to electrical or network wiring where communication equipment and digital technology work steadily and efficiently. Low voltage does not carry the same electrical current as power outlets, switches, and fixtures in a home. It will not provide a shock from contact, as it is defined as being 50 Volts (V) or less. Nevertheless, it can cause sparks if there is a bad connection but usually will blow a fuse before anything terrible happens. The more common low voltages are 12 V, 24 V, and 48 V. Low voltage is supplied by a transformer that converts line voltage to low voltage. It is typically used for thermostats controls, alarm systems, doorbells, garage door openers and outdoor ground lighting amongst others. The most common applications for low voltage wiring are telephone outlets, wired LAN networks, cable broadcasting, and audiovisual equipment. Low voltage contractors offer a wide range of cabling services that include installation, repair, and full system replacement. This type of wiring requires a certification in low voltage, which allows the expert technicians to set up an entire network throughout a home or building. To ensure that the system is safe, with possible additional electrical upgrades, customers should hire a low voltage certified technician.
