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.
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.
Commercial Security Services:
When talking about commercial services, it is referred to solutions meant only for businesses, restaurants, hotels, hospitals, buildings, and so forth. Specialized companies and certified professionals focus on corporate clients to provide an array of services. These services are engineered to meet the clients and their corporation’s needs, from building lockouts, electrical installations, to business alarm systems and smart business implementations. Commercial services supply installation, upkeep, and repairs on such things as locks, HVAC systems, electric wiring, business alarm, and monitoring systems. Commercially-focused companies are known for their high-quality services for clients with different business-related needs, from small retail stores to complex office buildings.
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.
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.
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.
Certified locksmiths can install countless types of keypad locks, such as digital keypads for home or offices, or combination keypad locks. These professionals also repair or replace malfunctioning keypad locks, connect new ones to an existing security system, and change codes to gain access. Nowadays, home security systems come with a keypad for quick access to the security systems. Alarm system keypads or touchpads are the primary interfaces between the user and the alarm system, used mainly to arm and disarm the system, or check its status. Keypads are usually installed near entry doors or a central location inside a home or office. Very few security keypads are handheld and come with a DIY installation. In most of the cases, security keypads use a 4-wire connection to the main alarm panel and require professional installation. Licensed locksmiths have the proper skills and equipment needed to install these keypads or touchpads, for straightforward access.
