Areas of Expertise:

Security Systems:

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:

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.

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.

Services Offered:

TV Wall Mount:

A TV wall mount installation involves framing a television on a wall with adequate brackets. It is commonly used to help clear up spaces or an aesthetic TV placement that won’t clash with the interior design of a room. TV brackets can be fixed to a wall, and some brackets consist of moving parts that swivel or tilt, so the user can have a full-motion TV wall mount. TV mounting services may include high-quality brackets with their installation packages for an extra cost. Other companies offer the installation service only, which means that the parts like the brackets are optional, and the client may purchase them separately. The mounting price can be affected by some factors, like the size of the TV. Smaller TVs can be safely mounted on brackets with only one professional installer doing the work. Larger and heavier TVs will require two or more technicians to get the job done with safety and high standards. Other areas of expertise may be needed to mount a TV, adding up the price for the installation. Services like in-wall wire installation, plywood installation behind plasterboard, or specialist fixings may be essential for a more professional TV wall mount. The providers now offer TV wall mounting quotes with a more rounded professional installation, including types of wall, fixings, and more.

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.
