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.
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.
Alarm System Monitoring:
Alarm System Monitoring is an intricate communication between a security system and a central station (monitoring center) of a security company. Typically, a Hub or control panel is the backbone of a network of sensors such as window or door sensors, motion detectors, environmental sensors, etc. that make up a security system. The Hub receives a signal when one of its components is triggered, then immediately sends a notification to the monitoring center. A certified monitoring team will contact the customer first to verify it is a false alarm or if a possibly dangerous situation is taking place. In case the monitoring center fails to contact the customer, they will call the proper authorities on behalf of their customers, sending them to the client’s home or business. Some security systems provide additional features, like fire alarm monitoring, which will contact the fire department when a smoke or fire detector is triggered. Many security companies offer alarm monitoring systems for home and businesses, where customers may choose between a self-monitoring security system or a professional monitoring one. With a professional service, the customer will have experts monitoring their home or business 24/7, for a more secure and reliable option. Home security monitoring has become an essential part of today’s alarm systems, offered by the majority of home security companies in the market today.
Video Doorbell Installation:
A Video Doorbell is a smart doorbell that notifies the user via smartphone or another electronic device when someone arrives at their doorstep. It is triggered by a built-in motion sensor or when the visitor rings the doorbell. It is the latest and most popular in smart home products, created for customers looking to enhance their security systems. It allows the user to use a mobile phone app to communicate with the visitor in real-time. Video doorbells come equipped with high definition cameras and night vision. Some even allow the user to open the door remotely using a smart lock. Some video doorbell installations are DIY projects that can be done by the customer. Other video doorbells require professional installation performed by a certified expert that will configure the video doorbell properly, which may have an extra cost.
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.
Remote Control System Installation:
Customizing a home security system to work remotely is easy to do. Customers benefit a great deal from remote control capabilities, particularly the ones who want to keep an eye out on family members. It is an incredibly valuable feature for customers who have a vacation home they wish to monitor or travel a lot. Remote control systems are a trouble-free, better way to connect the customer with a security system and smart home components. Remote controls deliver convenience and management over many devices, like security systems, live video monitoring, smart locks, environmental sensors, and many more. Remote control systems provide quick access using innovative technology products, such as keypads, key fobs, and keychain remotes. Many companies deliver smartphone apps, or subscriptions to the company’s website portal to manage the entire system remotely. Using the mobile phone app, the customer can arm and disarm the security system, control the temperature, turn lights on and off, all from the palm of his hand. Many home security companies include remote control devices and app access, along with its systems. Security companies or certified professionals can install the entire system, setting up all the components in the best placement possible. They provide assistance to the customer to learn to use the system for the first time. If any product malfunctions, customer support can help out troubleshooting and replacing the faulty item.

Nowadays, most of these lighting products are energy-efficient LEDs (Light-Emitting Diodes), used among smart home automations and inside devices such as cameras and motion detection sensors. Contractors provide installation and maintenance, as well as repairs, for all the customers lighting needs.
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.
Boilers are large water heating appliances used to warm up homes and buildings. They usually operate on closed-loop systems, such as radiators and air heating systems. They can also provide hot water to water-using appliances, such as faucets, showers, and dishwashers. On the other hand, a water heater is a device that stores water while increases the temperature of the liquid until it is used for showers, washers, or any other need.

A smart lock is an electromechanical locking device that achieves locking and unlocking operations on a door. It receives instructions from an approved device, such as a smartphone or tablet, using a wireless protocol to complete the authorization process. Smart locks can grant remote access using a mobile app or key fob, without requiring a traditional key. It also monitors access and sends notifications for different events related to the status of the device. Smart locks can enhance security systems while adding convenience and utility to its owner. They are considered an extension of home automation, being also able to work together with a smart doorbell to let the user see who is at the front door. Smart locks are designed to replace traditional bolt locks on a door. Some devices are designed for DIY installation, while others may need a professional installation service. A professional installer will connect the smart lock onto previous mechanical clamps, upgrading simple latches or deadbolts.
