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.
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.
